Region, that engine looks mental, I certainly won't try and race you. sorry about going AWOL last night guys as I had to be somewhere at 7pm and was only online for about 10mins
Big Col the offer of help for the brakes etc is gratefully accepted as I do not have a good track record for either (every bolt seems seized and I end up snapping them off lol) I will let you know when I am going to do it (i.e. when funds allow) I am not going to do a huge amount more to the engine yet as the brakes and suspension are not up to the performance as it is at the moment. I need to get a bonnet vent sorted and a couple of other bits and bobs.
DaveB the catch tank was in the oil section beside the oil filler caps. I think it was for an old escort. Just don't ask the halforfd staff as they didn't even know what a catch tank was when I asked lmao
cheers mate, you see what i mean about smoothing the cover though? and i bet you didnt notice the oil cap! you can cut the original down like this so you dont have to put up with that ridiculos mushroom shape cap vauxhall gave us
That is a great mod with the filler cap, have to get that done as well as mod the cover fitting as you have done. Is that a Valeo coil pack you are using. That si what I have, mounted in the same place as yours. I think it is far superior to the Vauxhall one, as it has never missed a beat or failed to start.
