   That will probably be the other type as the condensor will be a four bolt fixing. I bought a four bolt fixing type pump not knowing  mine had a differant one on it. The pipe is fitted into it in a differant position. Thanks for thinking about it.  Keith B

   moderators please move
  Wanted for 2.5 F/L diesel, the pipe that comes from the compessor and runs across the subframe to the near side some where. Mine has a hole after the compressor front blew off.
Please note; the compressor is differant on the F/L to the earlier cars, differant position and a three bolt fixing.  Thanks Keith B

Omega Gallery / Re: Meet "Morticia" !!

thanks all for the words of encouragement, I was a bit disheartened tbh when I got her, as there's more to do on it then there was on my 18yr old Astra Convertible that preceded it, but like you say, they are all little bits here and there, and they dont actually stop the car working, so its all stuff I can do as and when time and funds allow.

cheers all !!   :-*


  Every Omega I have seen with that style wheel has needed them refurbed. Mine had the same wheels when I bought it but I changed them when the tyres wore out.  Keith B

Omega General Help / Re: Tramlining
« on: 31 December 2011, 15:53:22 »
 My estate was tramlining, I fitted GM wishbones and after only a year the ball joints were totally shot. Just had the front struts changed for gas filled with new ball joints and drop links. A lot more confidence in the front now but it will still tramline on a lot of roads due to the amount of HGV traffic in this area even though you cant see their marks unless it has rained very heavily. keith B

   There is a cracking bit of road down this way that the bikers like to use, so most road deaths will almost certainly be from that group. I know three bikers who used to regurly exceed 140mph on two or three areas of it

Omega General Help / Re: Injector leak off pipes
« on: 29 November 2011, 19:09:56 »
 That one on #6 is a real pig to get to as well. I wonder if where I went had inferior blanks as the whole job was a nightmare, they broke the car twice while they had it in. First bit I found was the vac pipe that runs from the servo down to the EGR. It has two smaller pipes that run off of it by #4 injector. They broke off the one that must go to the gearbox ecu as I could be out dragged from the lights by a fully loaded artic. Then I found that they had also broken both the sensor wires that come off #4 injector. The whole job was 350 but it cost him 280 to buy a new injector from bosch. I told them that if they identified what type of engine it was, a new injector from Vauxhall was only 85 on trade club. They decided to ignore my advice. Ha ha ha

General Car Chat / Headlight level sensors
« on: 28 November 2011, 13:19:11 »
    I know that this is a very common problem on the omega. On mine, the arm keeps coming out of the sensor. As a try, I wrapped four turns of PTFE tape around the ball joint and so far, it hasnt dropped off for 5 months now. Thought I would share this in case any one else has a similar problem.  Keith B

   i had  a B plate MG Montego years ago. Went well and had the silky smooth Honda gearbox in it. Electrics were a let down in the end. The Turbo,ed ones were very manic, would leave rubber at 85 mph in third

General Car Chat / Re: hail damage ..(large pictures warning)
« on: 28 November 2011, 12:50:14 »
  We had a similar problem in Essex in the late 1980,s with a freak hail storm. many, many cars had to have there roof panels replaced as the damage was so bad. some even had front wings, bonnets and boot lids/ tailgates replaced, and then came along the famous Micheal Fish "no hurricane" warning. body shops had work backed up for six months without the normal crash repairs coming in. keith B
