2 stands on the jacking points and the jack on the subframe for extra support

I normally put stands underneath and leave a bit of tension in the jacks!! you never know if the floor going to give way  :lol:

My drive shaft had a split gator, I thought I had an oil leak from above. Re-sealed everything before noticing a small hole in the gator  :x

well i decided to hunt for this elusive oil leak. so far i have replace the oil cap!

and at japfest when i was checking my oil i noticed that where the valve cover is bolted down was bubbling oil!





so i've cleaned the nuts down and and put a ring of silicon sealer around the base of the nut and i'm leaving them to dry before i put them back on. i didnt have any o rings in that size so i improvised.

also i emptied my catch can there was a bit of brown water in it and this was on the intake side of it



and i read somewhere about checking the serial number of a turbo to identify it?



well fitted some heatwrap and re ran a few cables to try tidy it up a bit.
i also took off the heatsheild as it wa poorly mounted and was vibrating against the block which was increadably annoying.

My catch tank is similar.

Oily vapours mixed with condensation etc makes that brownish sludge. Nothing to worry about.

If you had that colour on your dipstick though, then it's time to worry.  :D

Alrite lad
Was just scanning through your pics and noticed that you have blocked off the sump breather.
You could tee this into your breather pipework from the rocker cover to the catch tank and it would keep the sump from pressurizing.. It would help stop oil leaks around the sump too..
You maybe have already done this..  :wink:

I realise the previous owner might of made a bit of a mess of the electrics but it does seem that the car was good buy on the whole. It does look the business in White and seems to have come with a lot of shiny bits that must of cost a fair few quid.

I don't know what you paid for it but I would be happy if I had got hold of this little beauty. I prefer the original bumper too but the one you have is still a peach and looks the part with or without the splitter things :D
