I have been re-pouring V6 engine mounts in polyurethane and as a result I have seen a few engine mounts recently. I know what you mean, if you stuck a screwdriver in one of the cracks and levered you'd get a chip off? I haven't done many yet (I really need peoples old ones) but all that I have seen ...

Lowering the car is unlikely to make the ride less comfortable, unless you choose rear springs that are a lot stiffer than standard, or you just cut coils from the standard springs which will also make them stiffer. Of course if you lower it so much that it bottoms out that won't be comfrotable eith...

That's a little bit like mine. On mine the clear protective film came off and the enamel got oxidized. The blue faded, the red turned to brown, the green went sorta black. I (carefully)used some cutting compound which removed the oxidation, but the colour is gone forever. Yours looks like it's suppo...

What I did with my 12V was to: Scrape of all loose gunk Soak it in degreaser (or kerosene) and leave it overnight (brush it on) Then use a compressed air wash off gun with water soluble degreaser Then hose it off with water I used a steam cleaner on my TA which worked quite well. I don't like sand b...

Sorry cchan I completely missed your post. Yes I am still looking, but I just looked on the USPS site and looks like US$27 for freight :( . In the last 11 days I guess your bin would've been emptied anyway :D . Thanks for the offer though.

Cheers, Scott

Old engine mounts needed

My Dad and I made a mould to re-make RWD V6 engine mounts (75, 90, GTV6, Milano, 6) but we need the old ones for the plates. We have a mould for front and rear engine mounts, but the front ones seem harder to get so that's what we concentrate on. It doesn't matter how bad they are, if you don't need...

Well, you could set it up so that one wheel was in the dirt and the other on the bitumen. If it spins the wheel in the dirt then it's not LSD, if both then it is. Probably wouldn't do it in my car though.

You can use Loctite #569 to do the job. It's a bit neater to do and doesn't leave tape to be seen. The loctite isn't a thread locker and allows the fitting to be removed if the need arises. Just another option.

On 75's, the fluid for the headlamp washers comes from a separate pump on the windscreen washer reservoir. It's the bigger pump. The line is quite big and runs underneath the coil , and then around the outside of the battery and through the hole underneath the left hand headlight to a T-piece behind...

Looks good! Do you have any problems with the spout on the side of the brake reservoir leaking? If you heat the spout up with a lighter you can squash it flat with a pair of pliers . Worked for me.
