If anyone has a cheap pair of the above, untorn, that would be brilliant, just to help finish my interior off on the Special...!

Car Parts, bits For Sale & Wanted / Pair of 16" CD alloys
« on: 22 August 2018, 20:20:56 »
Two CD five-spoke alloys.

 One is in reasonable nick and the tyre has perhaps 2-3mm across the tread, maximum. It is a Kumho, but it definitely needs replacing very very soon.

The other is to put it bluntly, scabby but usable. It has a scab of paint missing around the valve area, along with various other marks. The tyre is also a Kumho, but best described as "barely legal". Stop sniggering at the back.

10 each, collected, before I go mad and start making them into furniture I don't need. :y

"Fuchs 90LS (90 LS) Gear/Axle/Differential/Limited Slip/LSD Oil" to give it the full title. Bought 2 one litre bottles and ended up needing 1.05 litres to fill my diff up.

As a result, to save anyone buying two full litres to fill theirs, I'll send the remainder for 6 posted. If it's any use to anyone, before it sits on my garage shelf of usefulness.

General Discussion Area / Thank you again, OOF!
« on: 22 August 2018, 20:11:25 »
I know I'm not on here anywhere near as much as I used to be, but just a massive thank you again. Especially to Fuse 19, for the guide to changing the diff oil. Without that I would have had no idea how to do it! :y The ex-plod is nearly back on the road!

General Car Chat / Honda Civic ABS sensor wiring
« on: 07 August 2018, 18:18:20 »
Mate has a 2005 Civic. Due to a hamfisted idiot, it needs a new ABS sensor. The one Ive got has a totally different plug, but matches every single lookup on the interweb.
 Can I chop the wires and solder or crimp them together? And does it make a difference which one I connect to which? I assume so since they are different colours...

I don't do electrics. Give me cogs any day...!

Just trying to make space in the shed, so here's a few bits I have...

Pair of orange side repeaters (with bulbs!) - 2 plus postage
Pair of Meyle rear damper rubbers, part 614 742 000 - as seen - 5 plus postage
Random wire and connector, GM ZF12-9 - no idea what it's for but it's in my box of spares. 50p plus postage.
Coil pack sealing rubber - for DBW cars - 1 plus postage.

I'd rather stick them up here than bin them!

As above. Before I start trying to use epoxy on the old one, and thus end up in casualty, anyone got one of the above they'd be willing to post for not too many pennies? :D

Omega General Help / Manifold heatshields, O/S, 3.2 V6
« on: 21 July 2018, 18:39:13 »
I'm having a whale of a time getting in to change my manifold gasket. However, I am either being blind, stupid, or both, as I can't see how to remove the lower of the manifold heatshields. Do I need to get the car back up in the air?

(Currently having an extended coffee break, having snapped some stupid brittle plastic valve, then thrown my toys well and truly out of the pram...!)

General Discussion Area / Thumbs up to Karcher
« on: 16 February 2018, 17:31:44 »
I am usually to be found with a  >:( expression, writing strongly worded letters announcing my boycott of one company or another, based on their utter incompetence (latest one, DPD, but that's by the by).

I am therefore quite happy to say I've had a good experience with Karcher supplying replacement parts for a pressure washer well out of the usual warranty, based on nothing more than a polite email, no need to get on my soapbox! I don't for a moment think I'm of any great influence of OOfers purchases, but hell, I'm putting it out there.

Omega Gallery / Took the pair of them out the other Sunday...

(Yes, they are dirty...)

Visiting Northampton (for reasons undisclosed in case MrsGK reads this) next weekend. Looking for a nice Indian buffet or restaurant within half an hour of a certain well known race circuit. Locals, advice? :D

(Her birthday tradition is to go to Cosmo, but I don't think there's one nearby...)


General Discussion Area / Merry Christmas all!
« on: 25 December 2017, 06:33:25 »
Hope you all have a cracking day! From MrsGK, FurryGK, and I... and the fleet...! :D

General Car Chat / Spotted many Omegas in Teesside today.
« on: 13 October 2017, 18:54:12 »
I don't see any for ages, then I've seen at least four today, not inlcuding the contents of the GK yard... silver MV6 on Acklam Rd, a blue-grey saloon on Stainton Way, a silver-grey V6 on Cass House Rd, and another silver saloon in Stockton.

As usual I was at work and so relatively anonymous, but if anyone on here is a local... IT COULD BE YOU!

General Discussion Area / Nice B and B or hotel, for Thorpe Park?
« on: 09 October 2017, 19:45:21 »
Yet again I wish to consult the OOF tourist board... MrsGK and I want to go to Thorpe Park before the year is out... Anywhere nice and under 100/ night, preferably a bit romantic like? Happy to drive an hour or so to get to and from...

General Discussion Area / May I just thank you all...
« on: 07 August 2017, 17:12:45 »
...or a great many of you, anyway.

Over the last few months I've not posted much, but been reading lots - all in aid of getting the MV6 and the Special, together, on the road, ready for mine and MrsGK's wedding. And, admittedly, because having two Omegas on the road is better than one...

I quite simply couldn't have managed it without this place - maintenance guides, advice, links, and general inspiration that you don't find on many other forums. Add to that, the sheer number of people who have supplied parts, tools, tyres, and tea. I couldn't begin to list people inidividually... So thank you to the admin team for keeping it running, and to the members that make it. :y
