Re: Glow plug anti-seize?

I suspect that at 9 quid for 500g it's probably more grease than nickel antiseize anyway, it'll be fine on the hinges :lol:

Re: Glow plug anti-seize?

Ceratec works fine and is cheap as chips, otherwise, yes, nickel based antisieze - not copper based as that will just make them stick worse from galvanic corrosion.

D8 V6 Ignition leads - possible groupbuy for silicone ones.

As above, I've just had the second set of leads die on me since having the car - and at £70-80 a set for 'decent' Bougicord ones I'm getting a little annoyed with them! Not to mention the hassle of taking the inlet manifold, etc, off. Anyway, I posted this on the Coupe club and copying it here to se...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

... or the other one which really gets me nice and pissed off - when I'm overtaking someone who's doing 60 MPH, and they accelerate up to 70 MPH as I'm beside them. SO many people do that now it's unreal - young people, old people, professional drivers, women, men, mums with cars full of kids. We'r...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Re: Clearing up Dulled/yellowed headlights

Oh some headlights (acrylic blends) the chemicals or even just meths wiped over them will take the bulk of the oxidation off, a lot of modern cars however (inc. the 406) are a copolymer with polycarbonate, which it won't work on - in which case it's elbow grease time, I just did mine for the 406, st...

Re: Battery current at rest

That suggests an 096, (75Ah) battery should still have 50% capacity after 750 hours or about a month at a 50mA discharge rate. Obviously the chances of it still starting the car will vary according to temperature, but 3 - 4 weeks in the summer shouldn't be a problem. To be fair my bro's current 110...

Think that was the previous engine that was also used in the Renaults.

Re: Polyurethane Lower Subframe Bushes, engine mounts

Does anyone just want the bushes? I've got someone wanting me to split for the engine mount.

Re: Lower gearbox mounting bush orientation

It has the rubber 'arms' go vertically - that lets it move a little front to rear to absorb vibration.
Although, many times I've put them in horizontally as a poor mans stiffened engine mount :D

Re: Polyurethane Lower Subframe Bushes, engine mounts

Had a couple ask about holding these - sorry, but I've had a couple of people ask me that to start with, held onto them and then never heard back, hence wanting them out of the way, so I'm afraid it's just going to be first come, first served at this price.

Re: Polyurethane Lower Subframe Bushes, engine mounts

Sick of seeing these, someone get them out of my way :lol:

If bought together (1 x set of mounts, 1 x engine mount) I'll do the lot at £130 - so £40 discount - basically you get the engine mount for a tenner. It cost me more than that to make it just in materials :|
