  1. I need to change from the original 5/8" BSP to -AN10 oil pipe fittings. I would then have lots of choices as to larger oil coolers and oil hoses. Would anyone here know the thread size of the adapter part that goes into the oil filter sandwich plate of part no. 33.

    Oil Pressure Oddness

    What oil filter are you using?
  3. My dash lights are extremely dim in spite renewing all bulbs. Just wondering if there's a dimmer knob that I don't know about. Car is a 1984 S3 N.A. .........or if someone here has other solutions.

    Exhaust routing

    Obviously making contact with the suspension isn't ideal for NVH. .
  5. MY guess is that any good quality grease that doesn't wax up in cold weather will do. This isn't a load bearing component, and neither is it heavily used or stressed. I'd use a good quality synthetic lithium based grease.
  6. Restoring this S3 NA. Today I got the engine started and moving onto the exhaust............ found that it was resting on the top suspension mount. Obviously not ideal so would appreciate if someone could post pics or let me know how the exhaust should route inside the rear passenger side wheel arch.
  7. Sometimes its worth the price of paying a machine shop with the correct tools i.e. pillar drill and hydraulic press to do a proper job of drilling/pressing the stud out.
  8. I am in the process of restoring my S3 NA manufactured in 1984. Unfortunately the seats have already be re-upholstered in full black leather, whereas the Certificate of Provenance states "half leather, half cloth". As I am trying to get the car as close to factory specs as I can, I wonder if anyone here could possibly upload pics of the factory seats in the original black leather and cloth trim. TIA

    Refitting carbs

    Should be a 1mm clearance between carb and spacer, spacer and manifold............all around. Tighten slowly and evenly, measure using a feeler gauge.

    Engine sealant?

    Hylomar Gasket 2000 or Rover stuff is good. Loctite anaerobic gasket sealants seem to Harden over time leading to weep and leaks. Hylomar Blue stuff for the liners wasn't it IIRC???
