Well I've never known a brake be so difficult to bleed up[nor has my mate who helped]and the pedal  still goes too close to the floor for my liking-and possibly for an MoT testers liking too I'll bet,so that needs more work.Then while driving it round the yard where the lock up is[to make sure the thing would stop and there's only bushes round the yard to hit if it didn't]it went and blew a brake light bulb >:( >:(

Might be worth unbolting the calipers,so you can have the bleed nipple (and the air) at the highest point, before opening the nipple ?

Extracted (with some difficulty) the bush from an old steering idler. Then cooked the idler casting in an oven for a couple of hours, while a brand new GM bush, previously extracted from a new Senator idler sat in a freezer.
Then pressed the new bush into the old idler. So I now have, to all intents and purposes a new GM steering idler.
Will fit it to the car at some point when Im in the mood. The one on there currently isnt in too bad shape.

I believe the Russians were conducting excercises in the area and HMS Defender identified itself and that it was sailing through the area .
Russian propaganda .

I bet they got as close to the Russian exercise as they could whilst being able to claim they were legit though!  ;D

I have re-read the previously quoted thread and noted the part number for the 3.2 V6 is shown as 90549743, but elsewhere I have found part number is quoted as 90540743.

Which one is it for an engine number of 08789xxx please? ???
 :y

I think the quoted GM part no 90549743 was a typo and definitely incorrect.

New Gates timing belt kit and water pump fitted to the Omega .
Old one was four years old and had covered 3200 miles .
While in there I replaced the crankshaft  oil seal ....twice .. as I rolled the edge of the first one when fitting it . >:(
Will adjust the handbrake tomorrow after rebuilding them both last year with all new parts .

Only buy a genuine sensor from a genuine VX dealer that you genuinely have to walk in to.

I had exactly your symptoms recently with my 2.6, so I fitted a brand new genuine VX crank sensor 90540743 that matched the Bosch no of the faulty one I removed (the replacement I had previously bought from Vauxhall), but after fitting it, it fired up and ran for a short period, but then it refused to start again ( just cranked). Ended up fitting a known used genuine Bosch sensor off one of my 3.2 breakers (which was obviously a previous replacement as I could get it off in one piece) and it has been fine since.
Although I agree totally with the sentiment about getting a genuine VX from a VX dealership, this isn't 100% foolproof as I found out! The same genuine Bosch marketed product is part no 0 261 210 131 if that helps.
