I'm along ways off that yet but I'm keeping a file where I'm writing what I need to do and where I can get parts from etc. Carz is in there under the heading off body parts.

I have to formulate plans first. It's how I work :lol:

Sorry chaps been away from the forum for while soon after joining. Constant overtime in work as we are under staffed and they won't take anyone else on. Been doing 10 and 12 hour nights since before Xmas. :roll:

Anyways work is a little quieter now so am turning my attention back to my five. I got my battery tray blasted in work and gave it a couple of licks of red ox and black hammerite. It looks half decent now and I will get some pics up this weekend if I can remember the password to the photo bucket thing.

Couple of coats of red oxide

Couple of coats of hammerite

Not factory I'm sure, but I reckon it will last for ever now.

Changed the oil and filter, the plugs and leads and filled with coolant. Unfortunately I got carried away and didn't check for leaks first, even though I read the label on the coolant and then dismissed it :roll:  Fresh water and coolant everywhere. :evil:  The plastic swirl pot had a crack in it so I tried to get it off to do a quick bodge with a tube of glue and the damn thing cracked into 3 pieces. Jubilee clips rusted solid and frayed hoses sent me over the edge so I knocked it on the head for the day, will start it again on the weekend.
Damn thing is fighting me already. :D

Cheers for the replacement pot Rob  :wink:

Sounds like it could end with grazed knuckles.  :twisted:

I hate stubborn hoses, almost certainly end up whacking your hand into something when they do finally decide to let go.

I have a pot of jubilee clips somewhere I may go around with the wd40 and replace them all one at a time every now and again.

The offending article, and the replacement

Went for start up today. I had power but no spark, Rob came around to help and he worked out my coil is knackered. The knock sensor was stuck in with sealant as well so it's best I get another of those too. :oops:

I can't say I'm very disappointed as the way I see it I'm still a damn site further along than I have been for the last 13 years :)  It'll be another two weekends before I get back to the garage ( Damn family and work :twisted: ) But fingers crossed :D
