We all have those songs/numbers that have made an impact. One particular favourite of mine was the Four Tops, 'I'll be there'. I was working in the garage re-building a 1931 Ariel Square Four when I first heard it. Simon Dee, the DJ, (I know, you've never heard of him,) was so impressed, he played it twice in succession on the wireless radio. I was lucky enough to have lived through, and enjoyed, the '60's and Motown music, etc.
What was the record that had an impact on you, and why?

The bird and the E-Type at the end of his TV show. :y

Yes, great finishing clip. :y

Omega General Help / Re: Diesel gearbox on a 3.2
« on: 27 August 2018, 16:32:21 »
no way unless you make an adaptor plate,
having said that diesel ratio,s would no be best suited to  3.2 anway

I always felt the AR25 ratios were wrong on the TD anyway, and required higher revs in 3rd before changing up, no doubt the profile was chosen for economy rather than performance. Chipping helped, but the ratios were still wrong, even with an AR35 fitted. :y

« on: 27 August 2018, 16:28:59 »
Hey, I've just recently acquired a 3.2 lump for a future conversion (needs gaskets changed and painting) currently have a 2.6 at the moment and the gearbox would melt under the 3.2, but was wondering if a 2.5td gearbox bolts onto the 3.2 lump, not sure if its been done before, i know there alot stronger and the gearing ratio is better any help would be appreciated  ;D

The standard TD box is an AR25, which is barely strong enough for the TD, certainly not if the latter is chipped as mine was. The AR25 can be physically made to fit a 3.2 by swapping the bell housing, as I have done the reverse, fitting an AR35 from a 3.2 to a TD with a new bell housing. But an AR25 would not last until the first set of lights, if that, on a 3.2. :y

Omega General Help / Re: Central locking
« on: 20 August 2018, 19:33:10 »
Sorry all. Been away on a course for 4 weeks so been busy busy busy. Ok so I'll explain what happens.
1 remote fob is dead as someone has tried soldering it and bridged it. The other looks new and lights flash but wont operate anything on the car. When I use the key it always unlocks the drivers door and fuel cap. But then does sporadic things like sometimes will unlock all the car. Sometimes one rear door sometimes the passenger door. I have tried putting the key in and pressing the buttons in stage 1 ignition but nothing happens. All lights open when I open the doors and I have tried swapping round the solenoid in drivers door and still does the same so I am guessing it is going to be the alarm ECU as I have been told this is a common problem

It may well be, but I don't recall it coming up in the 10 years (OMG!) I've been with OOF. Wiser heads will be along momentarily. ::) :y

Man came to remove my dead 2.2 half an hour ago, but backing in he knocked off his number plate, swore, and promised to return tomorrow with a smaller truck.
How can I help?

Your pipe suggestion is correct, my cars are both wrong. I tested 2 spare reservoirs as follows. I blew compressed air in one side and on the other side I attached a hose ending in a jar of water. In both cases blowing in the right hand pipe produces lots of bubbles from the LH pipe. The other way nothing happened. Conclusion: Air goes from RH to LH pipes, so we need to suck on the LH pipe to draw air in the RH pipe. As the maintenance guide article says.
I shall now switch mine over. Funny, mine were running fine before.

Let us know Terry. ::) :y
