Moving air intake to this position would spell the end of your engine in Ireland I fear. Too low for driving in wet. Hit one decent puddle and engine would be full of water.

Hmm, good point there gotta work with that somehow....

Hello,

I tested the air intake thing with driving on full rain just behind another vehicle and driving to deep water puddles etc.. having fun on wet ;) And as I took off the filter it was maybe somehow wet but I think that is only the humidity because there wasn't any sign of water all dry.. But better keep looking the situation :)


I worked out that the automatic ride height kompressor didn't work good. Took it of and guess how dirty it was inside! Cleaned everything up and put some vaseline in the bearing that is marked with red cross in the picture :) Put it back in and it worked like a dream and no noise anymore :) Then.. guess what after couple weeks  :'( Other shock absorder spitted oil out :(

But does anyone know does it remain functionally because the ride is still kinda good and the air stays in???


Then one day I was about to give up with this car as the water broke out again!!!! Luckily it was only the expand tank :)


Also some pictures after good wash ;)

Hellou OOF :) I have survived from the christmas and new year pretty good :) Have you? :) Very very happy new year to all :)

I could almost say that it was late autumn when I bought my christmas present for myself :) WHeeeeeels  :y

Cheap but still good condition. Had some tarnish in the inside but i fixed them up ;)

Just bought and washed them.






Finished product and starting point :)





Sanding, polishing and painting....






Ready! :)





Then I finally got the new shock absorders :) I don't know why I don't have any photos of the new ones..... but younou they were shiny :D







The old ones :/ Nuts cut broken at the very first opening try :) Soooo rusty everywhere....







Due to mistake at the local shop I had to refresh the old washers and those 2 spacers. Otherwise I would been sitting without work for a week.... They came up pretty good :)






Winter came up good so decided to change tyres :)






Then I had this extra water pump for the cabin....
Actually the story is kinda funny because at first there was no problem but eventually did a nice easy job on -15*celsius.... it was freezing cold.... Anyway  as I was just looking up my car... like just hanging out with her because it was cold :) And noticed a small spot under front bumper.. looked under and up but nothing anywhere and as I was searching for leak I ended up measuring the voltages of the extra water pumps one at the front radiator and the other pushing water to the cabin. The radiator one I didn't get how it works... but then the cabin one as I measured the voltage with ignition ON there was a 12.4 but the pump didn't work...  so to the garage and remembered that the old omega didn't have the extra pump and I had bought some cheap pump earlier :) Changed the pump and there was a shivering sound again :) It was a very easy job but when needed to do some things without gloves it wasn't fun :) And good things also there haven't been leaks after that :)

So this is the old pump. As you can see form pictures it has a worn out (charcoal).





Thanks

The green charging lead in the bumper is it for a prewarmer or something else?

Yes, at the moment I have this radiant heater, it warms the oilsump.

I'm planning on going to this tube heater that warms up cooling water :)

And also I have interior heater.
