Re: PS can overflow

Pressure accumulator depressurises over time when not used for a period spewing overfill amount out top of canister. Correct fill level is 10mm below top when fully depressurised. You will note after running ATF fluid level drops. With engine off pump break pedal circa 20 times or until hard and you...

Re: Heater valve wanted uk

Don't want to muddy the waters but thought it might be helpful sharing my experience with the heater valve. The MTC repair kit I used didn't work that well. It didn't leak but the heater operation wasn't right. When I rebuilt the engine I then forked out a huge amount for a BMW OEM complete replacem...

Re: Cabin fuel smell

Check also: - The filler cap gasket - Lines / hoses to the charcoal canister if fitted (up front). There is a long hard line that is fed from the expansion tank that runs under the car. - The external fuel pump itself. Not that long ago mine started leaking, at fist intermittently, at which point I ...

Re: VDO Gauges

Yes and no if that makes sense. The aftermarket gauges use their own senders. My speedo (ST700 unit) picks up from one extended lug bolt on drivers side front. Most of the OBC functions die, except clock and o/s temp - which are all I ever use. Was difficult for my auto sparky to maintain the ABS wa...

Re: My henna 84

Really impressed with your engineerings kills.

Regarding the variable stacks and excuse me if you've already covered this - what triggers the adjustment and how responsive will they be?

He posted a video of the finished product spitting flames. I wouldn't count on any significant increase in power unless doing...

Re: Going Euro lights up front, looking for advice

I think technically they're semi sealed, as you can replace the bulbs. You can improve them as long as the reflectors and lenses are clean and clear by using decent modern bulbs, and get them aimed properly, but obviously will not be up to modern standards, especially spread. If you do decide to pul...
