Re: My GTX

Hopefully that's it sorted now.
I remember the frustration and nagging doubts about airlocks from changing my water pump about 3 years and 70k ago -
which means it's due again soon. :frown:

I've got an App for that. :wink:
Do tell :?
As my learned colleague from Harket Marborough is well aware:
226 bhp/320 Nm lugging 1500 kg will do nicely......
as will 185 bhp/420 Nm when applied to a venerable 406

Re: My GTX

Ouch!

On a brighter note, with that there MFD, it's just a question of prodding the two buttons either side to set everything.
(Can't honestly remember which does which as it's about 6 years since I touched one, but it wasn't difficult).

Keep up the good work. 8)

Re: My GTX

Looks not bad at all, (increasingly popular colour too). CC is a bit confusing since there are no indications it's on. It'll only work in 4th or 5th above 30 mph. The usual suspects if it won't engage are the clutch pedal switch, (try lifting pedal with your foot), or the 'coherence' of the two brak...

Re: Tiny hole in exhaust - how to seal up?

Probably not relelvant - I attempted to fix a few perforations in a Triumph Dolomite fuel tank, (when Bright Eyes was No. 1).

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Getting an MOT, which the trusty Dogmobile2 passed with one advisory - slight knock from n/s/r droplink. £30 well spent. :D Tester expressed surprise at how good the emissions results were at 206k miles. "Barely run in", I observed. Guess 60 miles of main road cruise every weekday helps. Just two da...

If replacing, use Bosch or NGK unless you want to do it again real soon......
