Find the best 2 x 205 GTI's or suchlike you can and put a sheet over them in the garage, or something Japanese and tasty that's coming up to 25 yr old that the yanks will like, they can import at 25 yr old and are hoovering up those little Suzuki cappuccinos and the like currently

My brother has a GTR, pig ugly but it's an incredible device that I will not grace the passenger seat of again as the one ride scared the pants off me, that was before he had it remapped to 600 BHP too.

If going cordless you'll need to spend a few hundred on one to get a crank bolt off but clarkes corded one is nearer 50 and is reputed to be a big hitter

Seconded on the ebay ones, decent quality when I did mine

If someone buys this and doesn't want the gearbox/flywheel/prop I'd be interested in sorting something out

Omega General Help / Re: Diesel gearbox on a 3.2

99% sure that box won't bolt to a 3.2 block, you'd need an R25-28 box

There's a member with a 3.0 breaker in Liverpool, engine has had the cams removed but good block and heads are there along with a good AR35 autobox, he'd take a reasonable offer on the car as a whole and you could scrap the shell to recoup costs

Omega General Help / Roll pins
« on: 25 August 2018, 17:48:37 »
Need to replace 2 roll pins that hold the manual gearbox rods together but by christ what a pin in the arse it is, seems the hole is 4 ml ( sized with a drill bit) but can't get a 4 ml roll pin into the bloody hole, any specific technique required ? Tried squeezing it with mole grips to no avail

I'll have to up the price when I next get any breakers in  ;D

Tin snips and rip it out, bastrd things are just a nuisance

The PTSD reminds me of an old guy who lived opposite us as kids called Albert, shell shock meant nothing to us as kids and we all knew him well enough not to be scared but he was a character in his own little world and made little sense to talk to but as kids we made sure no one gave him any grief. He lived with his younger brother a who had a torrid time as Albert's obsession was building a shed in his garden so he was forever raiding skips for bits and coming home with all kinds of crap, he painted the outside of the house blue one day just as high as he could reach though  ;D

It wasn't till a few years ago I found out the fuller story from a relative of his, they'd been informed he was missing presumed dead around 1941 when in fact he'd been captured by the Germans in France, he was heavily tortured and kept prisoner for a couple of years and when released was diagnosed as schizophrenic and was too violent to stay with family. He lived the next 25 years in an institution ,only being released when these started to close.
