We hear of far too many similar cases.

My memories of how to opps up on a Pinto was to hook the top rad hose over the top/back of the cam cover .... can't remember now why you would  :-\ ... and the cam pulley would wear a nice hole into it.  ;D ;D




I don't understand HOW you could, as the thermostat housing, that the hose attaches to, points up in front of the cam pulley. The hose then bends forward towards the radiator.


You're more likely to wear through the bottom hose with the fan belt if the water pump bearings fall out. Which, of course, they can't ;D

I know I wasn't the only person to do it  ::)

....
never had a Carlton crank sensor fail in 20 years of ownership (4 Carltons)
 ....

I never had one fail on my Senators or Carlton or Manta either .... mainly because they had a dizzy & points  ::) ::)
Points   ???
my oldest Carlton was 1990 MK 2 pre facelift ,with crank sensor and dissy cap and EFi (20SE engine )
I guess your talking MK1 Carltons and sennys  :-\
though IIRC the 1.8 Mk 2 had a carb ,but not points surely  ?
I never owned a manta  :(

I'm obviously a little older than thee  ;) ;)

in the early 60.s i went to sea , levis were widely worn by merchant seamen & to purchase a pair you would have probably had to go to a ships chandlers.
  i have been trying to get  some genuine levi jeans & ebay is full of them saying that they are authentic but when i look at the sizes they r.e not.  Levis never made jeans in even sizes. 29, 31 waists & buy them a size big as they always shrank. guaranteed never to rip & you would get e little story book with each pair.  will may try ebay usa

Not sure they do Levi's with bell bottoms any more Ray?  ???                                                                ;D

was it 7 creases?  :-\

I never wore square rig  ;)

We have had our last four Boxers from Boxer rescue, far better to give a rescue a home than pay inflated prices for fashionable puppies.

As soon as I had time, I refitted the cam belt cover.

I didn't think that anyone ever refitted the cam belt cover on a Pinto  ::) ;D ;D


It's there for a reason.


As I found out; the broken fan belt wouldn't have disturbed the cam belt, and I would have been back on the road in about 30 minutes....


And I've always used them since :y

Never had to replace any on my two Omegas just lucky I guess.

I (had) replaced 2 on my V6 .... one failed while SWMBO was at the lights in the middle of 4 lanes of traffic one Sat morning. Needless to say by the time I arrived, it restarted as though nothing had happened. The other time I was more prepared & had a brand new spare in a box that I'd bought over the counter at a real dealer  ::) but I was towing at the time & there was snow on the ground. Recovery arrived, I presented him with the code/fault & a spare CSS  ;D ;D His reply was that nobody had ever done that before.  ;D ;D

This  :y And as Mig says, it only needs to be a few yards so you can generally do it on a driveway

now well get 20 posts saying "I never use my handbrake and never had any issues"  :D

I'm with Skrunts .... I rarely use a hand/emergency/parking brake & have never had any issues  ::)

If parked on a hill it's used to hold the car before selecting Park  :y

You should try it with one third of a farthing, which I still have. :o ;D ;D ;)

Just had to Google them .... I'd never heard of one.

But I wasn't around when they were in use  ;) ;)
