My memories of how to opps up on a Pinto was to hook the top rad hose over the top/back of the cam cover .... can't remember now why you would  :-\ ... and the cam pulley would wear a nice hole into it.  ;D ;D

I don't understand HOW you could, as the thermostat housing, that the hose attaches to, points up in front of the cam pulley. The hose then bends forward towards the radiator.


You're more likely to wear through the bottom hose with the fan belt if the water pump bearings fall out. Which, of course, they can't ;D

I never had one fail on my Senators or Carlton or Manta either .... mainly because they had a dizzy & points  ::) ::)

Points   ???
my oldest Carlton was 1990 MK 2 pre facelift ,with crank sensor and dissy cap and EFi (20SE engine )
I guess your talking MK1 Carltons and sennys  :-\
though IIRC the 1.8 Mk 2 had a carb ,but not points surely  ?
I never owned a manta  :(

I know I wasn't the only person to do it  ::)

deviator:
I didn't think electrical components were guaranteed? I seem to remember a lot of places won't take back an electrical part. They claim you've swapped the part/fitted it incorrectly/damaged it/faulty wiring and will wriggle out of swapping it.

So good luck!
