    more points for pro drivers??

    thermostat replacement......help

    It's really not that hard! And you can flush the engine while you're at it. Careful where you dangle the earh lead for the altenator! Mine slipped and blew a 110 Amp fuse!!

    H&R Rear ARB fitting help!!

    I told the guys to harden the f*%k up too, but they just said "they ain't gonna fit!" So we moved to the front, and needing to re-use the the spring seats couldn't get the damn nut off the top! Why is it every time you do a new job, you can guarantee you need a tool that you don't have...

    you will need a small universal joint to get to the drivers side bolt. Make sure you get a new o ring in the box.

    Where in the country are you? Could take you out if you're anywhere close (Cambs). In these perilous economic times, if you can spare £99, you'll save it many times over!

    I'm sorry to read of the situation that you have found yourself in. The law MUST be written for the lowest common denominator i.e. the Moris Minors still out on the road. If the limits were raised to factor in improved technology, the users of those older cars would automatically, without a...

    Suspension questions..

    Thanks for the reply! 3. don't have one of those. Will an offset ring spanner work? 5. It's the inner CV boot. I've got the spline bolts M6 all the way up to something like M18. Bolts are M12 IIRC. Do you have/could you link a picture of the tool? Thanks again! Andy
