I suppose there is always an element of luck....& risk. I can only try & mitigate against any huge bills/disasters by going for one with a good history
& reasonable mileage. There are an awful lot of Sprinters on the road, I assumed because they were very reliable but maybe it's because of lack of choice. The Transits seem very popular too but maybe for the same reason. The Transits are a bit cheaper so I could get something newer & therefore less likely to start rusting  :-\  Or maybe, I go cheaper & keep funds in reserve in case of any future big bills...
Anyhow, radar is now switched on & being monitored!

Man Utd were the top football club in the global income league in 2015-16 season with a turnover of £515.3m, so they can afford this loose change. :y :y :y

To stay at the top they have to keeping investing in the top talented players to keep winning and the £££s rolling in. The same applies in all sports. :y :y :y

I suspect piston ring(s) on #3, as although I have no knowledge of these engines, a cracked block would seem less likely. Certainly its worth checking the rings on that cylinder. Do a bore check while its out as well. :y

Yep, agreed, thanks Chris.

Piston coming out, tomorrow :y

(I'll get chance to have a rest, then, as I'm off on holiday for a week, and the parts can all soak to break down the carbon while I'm away)

Am I right in thinking, piston being removed at BDC, undo both bolts from underneith where it meets the crank, making sure bearing cap roatation is noted, and tap out via the top?

I've never actually removed a piston!

I guess I should make sure there isn't a lip at the top of the bore, too. If there is - fine wet and dry?

What do I leave myself wide open to, and, why have you quoted the rules for the for sale sections in your reply?

I'm not trying to sell anything  :-\
Where have I quoted selling rules? :-\
Ahhhh....I see. Sorry, James, I have obviously copied stuff previously and, for some reason, itís pasted itself there. Please ignore my nonsense. The thread where all of this crap was originally pasted has been deleted by one of the mods. Apologies.

Good good. So whatís causing the low compression in no3  :D
One of three things: Piston rings, valves or crack in the block. :y

No need to thank me, thank google  ;D
I was stealing cars and messing with the engines while you were in short pants, Albs. Then they put all kinds of electric thingies like alarms, immobilizers and motion sensors in them  :(

FTFY :y

 ;D

See post above ::)

I like to be thorough and just having the manifold exit at a slightly different point can make a hell of a difference.

Are the new shape Transits likely to be any better than the old?


They've been the same basic structure  for years. So no, they're not any better.
But what else would you buy; the Crinfter isn't much better(and costs a lot more), the Primvaroster devours gearboxes, Ivecos kill engines etc, etc. It's a case of finding one of a size and shape that suits your use, and hoping you get away without too many of the expensive problems.
