think they were 150Bhp from memory, but after a time used to see most of them parked up on the Hard Shoulders   :(  :-\
SOunds like the redtops. A powerful motor, with occasional niggles, but still well regarded in the reliability stakes :y
Aye, porous heads on some of them, can't remember if it was the Coscast ones or the GM ones now.

He's a very busy chap, when you visit his garage the work level is no-stop. Be worth trying him again as I'm sure you'll find he'll fit you in ASAP.

Anyone know the part number or have some for sale?

Sounds to me like there's a pretty major issue with one of the internal boards / components. I would say board swapping is going to be the lowest possible method of fixing but coding between head NCDR and CID may become an issue. An NCDR 1100 might give you the parts you need.

Pretty much a standard part across the range IIRC, certainly a DTI one was the same as a V6 one.

Number of sources of oil on the sump lip, however, the pressure switch is a case of unplugging the cable and unscrewing it using an open ended spanner.

Further sources of oil on the sump lip could be crank seal and camshaft seals (usually the exhaust ones). There's lots of other sources of course!

I really need to get hold of a spare set of those triangle plates and clean and paint them ready for the project car.

Quickly removed the negative battery terminal after I switched on the lights which resulted in a cloud of smoke coming from the switch. luckily it was only some sort of regulator that had split open and nothing major. the fact theres quite a bit of electronics inside the switch surprised me but I'm not sure what the regulator would have done but it doesn't seem to effect anything.

I've had the same happen to one of mine!

I only want it out to find out if the mute pin to telematics wiring behind the glovebox is complete, not much to ask is it.  >:(

There isn't a mute pin on the Telematics unit / loom, it's achieved via CAN bus, or did you mean the telephone prewiring for a car kit?

I've encountered one NCDC that wouldn't mute when triggered too but it was the relay / unit rather than the wiring.

Are you referring to mine? Or is that number 2 ::)
No another one, I forgot about yours!

Think it all depends how much time the car has been in the sun. I had a Z147 wing I fitted to one of mine which is a Z157 car and it was obvious from every angle.

Anyway, if you ever need a Z147 O/S wing I've got one!

Cheers for the picture.

Assume it removes quite simply ..no little springs etc...just couple of screws and ribbon cable .

Sorry for silly questions but bits of wood is my trade ;D ;D ;D

That's right. Ribbon Cable plugs (on the main head unit) are quite fragile though.

Another Pic stolen from Internet showing the unit in situ
