  1. Hi I feel for you, I've had this, and its a real pain. top tops I have learned 1. Drill a hole in the thermostat - it allows a little bypass 2. Take a hose off at the back of the engine and fill up the cooling system 'behind' the thermostat, afterwards, resecure that hose and fill the rest normally 3. Make sure the water level in the tank is as high as the top of the head coolant gallery Hope it helps

    Zetec help

    Hi mine is like this, in my case top hose is a retro-ford water rail, but you get the idea. (just drew this in excel sorry for the naff-ness)
  3. Hey, winter mods this year; Front springs - going to 300lb from 250lb Engine mounts - gone a bit soft Cambelt - not sure of its age Water pump housing - Thread stripped grrr Header tank - going back to standard from a pretty allow one... Happy Christmas
  4. I know my nosecone is a different shape, but... Mine is attached with velcro tape (50mm x width of the plate) and is still there (fingers crossed it'll stay put)
  5. It just runs off into a catch tank tucked away... I had it slung under but securing it was a real pain - using big P-clips on the cam cover nuts hold it much better
  6. I used THIS to get a vacuum feed for my MAP sensor
  7. +1 for coil pack, I've had this too...

    Seats

    Totally agree - they either fit like a glove or are a proper pain - they are a pain for me too

    Seats

    Hey, I have a set if you fancy them with runners and 42.5cm across from a wide Westfield - in black GRP - no pads - £120 These exact seats ; http://s1321.photobucket.com/user/dannyscarbro/media/F7434579-F44D-4ECB-A627-1CBC30381808_zpssqf74wbl.jpg.html
  10. I found it best to lay the carbs inlet side down and get a good look at the hoses as they are fitted - little bits of casting and/or throttle spindle can prevent the hose clips from fitting as close as possible to the end of the hose. if you squint you can see them here;
  11. http://www.nankangtyre.co.uk/performance/motorsport/ns-2r I have Nankang NS2R Soft Compound - in the wet/cold they can be slippy - but in a fairly predictable way - in the warm/dry the are awesome
  12. My car passed ok with seats bolted directly to the floor, the guy mentioned it and stated that the rule didn't apply to 'Q' plates - these are treated as an old car as with the emissions they are very lenient on such things... You'll be fine if it's a 'Q', or old!
  13. Hi Andy I have Nankang NS2R's 195/50/15 soft compound They (I guess much like yours) are a bit dicey when its cold and damp outside, but at this time of year they are great. Wear seems good too so far. they felt a bit of a bargain from tyreleader.com Cheers
