only real problem is a coolant leak. i expect i missed off a jubilee clip though.
i also melted through my pas hose, but again, my fault.

hopefully be fairly plain sailing once these 2bits are sorted. problem is finding any time to work on it with it being so dark now. wish i had a garage.

I've also destroyed two inner cv's, one was old one from donor car that I kinda knew was on its way out, other was a the new one from factors that replaced it, less than 6 months old (second gear, foot to floor, bang, shot three bearings through casing).Hopefull that was just a faulty part too.

Other than that it's been pretty much faultless. It can get left on drive for a few weeks sometimes and always fires first time and runs fine.

Worth pinting out though that it had a pretty decent re-build, definately worth doing if you want to minimise any problems.


i've had the same problems as abovebut before my rebuuild it was running soo sweet and took a hammering for every day two years, since the rebuild my oil pressure relief valve might of been stuiuck so starved my new bottom end of oil so has to come out of the car and be rebuilt again

not a happy bunny
