  1. Hi easy to check the the gauge - find the sender ( it’s a brass sensor on the big aluminium pipe in the engine bay just under the highest point of the timing belt in the left hand side as you look into the bay ) then with ignition on but car not running unhook the wire and ground it to something ( like the pipe ) and the gauge should go to far right. if it does not your gauge is sticking. if it is not the gauge you probably have an incorrect sender - it’s impedance to temperature is too high. If this is the case order the right one.......
  2. Hi sorry - I reckon 1 and 1/2 threads - it’s on there ok. But to be honest I am very tired of this system. Going with Ian’s servo brake kit Oh and also - I just used a rubber o-ring.
  3. I put the adjustable seats as low as possible ..... still seems a bit high but maybe will settle with some mileage ....? It’s about 4cm from maximum tyre diameter to the flare.
  4. Hi just fitted protech shocks and lotac poly bushes after a full suspension overhaul - now my front sits far too high and looks pretty stupid. I loaded the car with 140kg and half a tank to torque all the bolts/ Now the stupid question - the bottom coil rest can be adjusted ( wound up or unwound down ) does this just change the pre-load or does it indeed adjust height? And if it adjusts height do I wind them up or unwind them down to lower the ride height ...... and if that does not adjust height is there anyway to do it? I apologise for my ignorance but I have going sus

  6. Got the plenum off. A lead was broken at the coil end ! changed the plugs / coils / all leads at the same time now I am scared above 5000
  7. Thanks for all suggestions - I have a feeling it’s the plugs / leads / coils .... Will replace Monday and report back
  8. Hello 2000 V8-GT all seems to be fine down low and no CEL or codes ...... when I really floor it and get above 5000 revs I get what seems to be a miss fire - The engine kinda looses smooth acceleration and a bit of loss of power. It’s only above 5000 rpm I wonder if it’s coil packs / plugs / leads so I will change these....... Any other ideas ?
  9. Excellent thanks ! so this is my setup Stud: 6mm front washer 3mm rear washer top ball joint 7.5mm shims front 4.5mm shims rear As you say 12 and 9mm total. Thanks so much Sailorbob Last question - the snubber washers seem not a “mirror image” as I would expect on the layout picture. In the front it’s snubber washer against bushing .... in the rear it’s the castor washer against the bushing - is this correct ?
  10. Sailorbob - thanks for reply and forgive my late night post relying on memory! - you were correct - I went back through the pictures I took and I have made a mistake : Infront shims were 7.5mm ( 3 x 2 and a 1.5mm ) Rear shims were 4.5mm ( 3mm and a 1.5mm) Total 12mm for castor shims The castor washers will b measured - should add to 9mm correct? with the 10.5mm I was talking about the Camber plates. Sounds correct ?
  11. I was whacking away like a school boy but no joy .... had a big tool too
  12. Double post in the Stephens and V8 section as it’s applicable to both and trying to find someone who might know... I got the bumper off for a respray and the side skirts look little bit “ sand blasted “ towards the front and could do with a freshen up ......they look like they are a combination of bonded and riveted on there and look a bit tricky to remove / replace Has anyone removed them ? Any pointers ? How difficult to do this / replace thanks again!

  14. I used a 3 prong gear puller - it took a bit of force.....
