  1. That is a real sweetie! You must be gutted to be selling.
  2. Hi Steve, is this the same piece as a PCV valve? looks similar...
  3. Steve, that'd be great. I'll also keep looking then now I know that they exist Thanks mate A
  4. Daft question, but I've managed to break teh plastic union that plugs into servo and the vacuum line - it was getting old and quite brittle, and it came apart in my hand, guv. I've not been able to find a part unless I get the whole line for about £40 odd. Being a bit of a tight fisted Meldrew, I don't like paying that for essentialy a small plastic nozzle. Has anyone been in this situation and come up with a suitable alternative? I did find a landrover one on ebay, but wasn't sure whether it would be common Or even better has anyone got one lying around?
  5. No probs Lee, thanks for the reply
  6. Don't know if you're still in the market, but I think I have a speedo and rev counter cluster from a Sierra knocking around on the garage
  7. Hi Duck, thanks for that input, I didn't realise this was the case, although it makes sense considering the dearth of suitable heads! I'll definitely have a look at this product and do some research. Another option I was considering was getting the car IVA'd as is, (I still have all the vin plates and docs etc), and then swap out for a 2l, banking on the head lasting for the time it takes me to get a suitable replacement lump. PS, still interested in those clusters and dials - if you still have them will you be able to post?
  8. Hi Alan thanks for your reply, yes that has occurred to me. I'm getting mixed messages on whether the leaded exhaust ports can take the strain or not. Some folk like yourself seem to have no trouble for years, where as others have reported failures relatively quickly. As far as I can make out there was some variability in the earlier heads that may be accounted for by different foundries /suppliers, however that might be a bit of speculation. Cheers A
  9. Hi Burney, thanks for your reply! Cheers A
  10. Aaaah, thought that might be the case. Never mind, your man cave is safe
  11. Great stuff, and thanks for getting back to me! Lol sounds like a great idea! And I'd hate to tear up your dreams. Cos it's for an S7 I don't even know if they'd fit - there isn't much space. bu thought it'd be worth checking out. Yes, please let us know about the other components. Cheers A
  12. Hello, if anyone has one of these at the bottom of a cupboard or down the back of the sofa would be glad to hear from you Cheers A
  13. Hello Burney, I'm wiring one of these up too. May I ask a couple of questions to pick your brains? Where did you wire in the rear fogs - currently I have them off the dipped beams as per the ford wiring harness. This mean that they turn off when you switch from dipped to full. Do you find the same? Horn - I can hear the relay click, but no sound. If I wire up direct the horn sounds as it should (but is not fused). Have you found this issue too? Where have you put in the reversing lights? - I've used the same spur as the brake lights Did you have fun and games with the
  14. I think there's a monthly (or was) in Hitchin for anyone with a classic, or interesting car. They did an event at the Lavender Fields last year which was pretty fun. Do you guys still meet up?
