Right. All systems go!

Thanks to Dave for the Dexron III and sealant links both ordered.
Thanks to Steve B for the solenoid link. Ordered! 38.98 + around a tenner delivery.
Much appreciated, guys!! :y :y

Filter already ordered and on its way (from Germany).

Any tips for changing the solenoid? It's the only thing that's making me nervous. :-X

I stopped watching 'The Bridge' when the male detective took 2 vulnerable teenage girls back to his flat to sleep.

It's as though the script writers had no idea of the possible consequences. Couldn't take it seriously after that.

I wouldn't call that life unreasonable.


The spring holds the car up NOT the shock. They both wear out.


Change everything while you're working; shock, spring, bearing and top mount.


Camber is adjusted by the two bolts that attach the shock to the hub carrier. It also changes the toe setting. Caster is set by moving the subframe, and it's extremely unlikely you'll need to adjust it. Basic alignment can be done with DIY methods, but you will need to have the job done properly.

Yes, thanks:

Springs holds yes, but new shocks behave like springs, they have a force to lengthen to full length. How about the riding height in front?

What are these "Top Mounts" never done this job before?

Hi Guys,

Can anyone tell me are the heads in a 2.5 the same as the 3.2?

If not are the camshafts interchangeable?

Thanks in anticipation

They are, but also a big heavy cumbersome bike too. Depends what you prefer I suppose. Different tools for different jobs. If I wanted to tour Europe for a couple of months a ZZR1100 would be a superb tool.

For Sunday morning blasts, an R1 / Fireblade/ 916 or similar would be perfect.
Its all fantasy though, as Im an old fart now anyway.  :)
I won't argue with that.....but perhaps 60 is the new 30. :y

My GPZ 750 Turbo was black and red originally, but blue by the time I owned it in around 1996.

I must say that I have always managed to jack each side of the Omega up with a trolley jack, then get an axle stand under to replace it.  There is just about enough room on the jacking point plate for that to be done.

I have also used a combination of trolley jack and axle stands, with a sections of heavy railway sleeper type wood, to gradually raise the car right up to maximum height for the axle stands, then allowing enough room to also get car ramps under each wheel for maximum safety. ;)

What a pity that his broad gauge system wasn't adopted universally; we would have had a safer network with greatly improved carrying capacity.

No idea what gauge is used in France, but their trains seem to work much better than ours, so I don't think the gauge is the only thing to blame!

Of course, they also have the nifty double-decker coaches most places, and they've figured out air conditioning on the Metro, unlike most of the London underground...

Given the choice of the train or a Taxi from CDG to Paris, I'd take the train every time - given the choice of the train or driving from anywhere to Heathrow, I'd drive every time ;D

They use Standard gauge, 4 foot 8 1/2 inches, like us, as do most of Europe apart from Spain.  That is why trains can run freely through the Chunnel and travel across most of Europe.

The likes of Russia and Spain use gauges that are classed as "Broad Gauge" of around 5 foot.  However, that is NOT the Broad Gauge Brunel used and promoted of 7 foot 1/2 inch; that would have made a tremendous difference to all railway operations and their profits ;)
