Local Indy just quoted 189 inc VAT and the waterpump :y
Mates rates for the 1.8 petrol was £100 six years ago, so I would say £189 is a decent price  :y

Agreed,sounds ok

Corsa C head gasket on 1.2 listed as 5hrs with autodata :y


Almost makes the 45 minutes for an OHV engine look like a good idea :)

It certainly does,just so nice to do aren't they :y

Should have no problem going the distance in a 48 year old Maxi. :)

Iveco,Hmmmm,I wouldn't count on that making it either :-\

Leclerc had his first drive in the Ferrari yesterday and was quicker than all the others who were there testing - including Vettel.  :)
Could be fireworks next season.  ::)

I saw that,I would love him to rattle Vettel

Also watched the two follow up videos,the comparison between the LC and VXR8 was interesting.LC was less powerful,lighter but slightly slower.Given the choice though I think I'd still take the LC.
LCs need a lot of lovin
This will do for you Mr BazaJT  :y

Omega General Help / Re: Should X20XEV HEAD BE SKIMMED
« on: 27 November 2018, 14:22:19 »
I have removed the head on the wifes 1995 2ltr (X20XEV) Omega, due to a knackered head gasket. The reason why I am asking if the head should be skimmed, is that some Vauxhall technical documents say not to, but everybody who have had gaskets go say get it skimmed. I can check the head surface with a straight edge, but cannot find the maximum allowed tolerance for it. If anyone has the measurement, I would be gratefull. Is there any other measurement I can also check beforehand incase it has been skimmed before I got it? I don't want to get it skimmed, if told it is safe to do only to find it has been done before and the head becomes no good.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Addy

If its not been done before it should be fine,if it is bowed and taking out H/gasket its no good as it is anyway

Not had much time to do anything with her due to work & thatís looking like how itís going to be until into next year, but at least it gives me time to break my 2 Golfs to fund this project so itís not too bad.

Iíve managed to get a full black leather MV6 interior & some early MV6 wheels already so Iím slowly sourcing all the bits Iíll need. Next on the list to buy is new suspension & bushes all round, Iím building her as a fast road/long distance tourer so am thinking Bilstein B4ís, Eibach springs & poly bushes all round which should stiffen her up without making the ride too harsh.

Then maybe (if I have enough spare cash) get a nice 3.2 built for her :)

Probably easier to stick with a 3.0 wiring wise and fly by wire throttle although both can be overcome

Quite fancy a plod Disco 4 :D

Should I also buy a lottery ticket ::)

"Plod" meaning ex-Police or just a description of the handling characteristics? ;)

Disco 3/4's are surprisingly refined, handle very well for a big 4x4 and arn't as agricultural as you might think.  ;)

I think you'd like them Kevin.  :y

I've no problem with how they drive/ride as they are very good,just way to fragile

shame is that non sky subcribers will only be able to watch highlights :( hope thier satellite burns up personally

Agreed,F1 should be free to view,I follow it and have Sky but I'm not paying extra to watch it

No surprise that a Land Rover is top of the list!  ;D

But also it seems that Vauxhall will fit in nicely with Groupe PSA.  :-X   ;D

Land Rover reliability is truly shocking for something which costs so much new :-X
