It was an option, but I was trying to see how little I could get away with stripping the engine. The more bits I take off, the more I'll lose.Great thread CJ
That dipstick filler, (as you will have by now doubtless seen), is easy to take off in the engine bay. Just another of those plastic collet type clips like the fuel line and brake vacuum line.
I hope to have it all back together in the next few weeks, but it all depends on time, daylight and weather.hurray! good work mate, keep at it!
Whats the timescale for your planed work?
the SC project not nearing completion?
are you going to fit the new fuel tank whilst everything is out or leave that for the SC project?
I did mine with little or no knowledge, on the street (dont even have a drive like CJJ, and in Siberia (well Aberdeen). It took a while and there was some "incidents" but with this florum and the members on nit, you should manage and save HUNDREDS and get to really know your carFantastic thread
Maybe the inspiration I need to go and replace my head gasket :scary:
i'm scouting this weekend (practice for the cheshire hike - so all weekend gone) - but will start stripping bits next week!
Sorry to hijack - but should i get the black head gasket (mls) or another normal gasket (with red beading)? There is very little between them in price.
