yes that's the one never had a problem with it :y
Thanks. It seems to be specifically for SAE 3/16"  pipe. That is fine as long as Omega pipe is SAE 3/16".

I suspect you are right. Just measured mine, they are 6.07mm od, which could well be 3/16" SAE id. Thanks for your help. All now awaits what I find when I remove the cill covers. Grandson Tom, aged 4.4, regards this as his car; he loves it, has just been promoted to a bigger, forward facing car seat, and can now reach the window switch. There is no external sign of rust, pretty good for a 19 year old car - my thanks to ajsphead. The clutch is original, though it is on its 4th differential.

Four differentials on one Omega? :o
You need a better source of diffs. A properly reconditioned Carlton/Senator/Omega differential should be good for 80K-100K miles. Don't know exactly because I've never kept the car long enough.

Previous owner had Swiss Valley Garage, Clevedon, fit the first one 9July2012, source unknown. When it got noisy I fitted a spare I had kept off a 3.0 I had scrapped. When that diff got noisy I fitted one off a 2.0 I was scrapping. That 2.0 also provided a manual gearbox for a forum member who collected it, who was pleased to find the diff and prop shaft already removed.
The two I fitted were not reconditioned., though I did change the oil.
