  7. cleaning engine water and oil circuits

    you will need to run it with both methods but it wouldn't hurt using a steam cleaner or a hose pipe to remove as much as possible before refitting the components you should be able to tell water ways from oil ways as the water ways should be tarnished a brown an full of that horrible grey sludge an oil more black in colour

  11. Td5/Puma tub on earlier car

    its an easy conversion to do get some steel pipe of the correct diameter use the original filler neck hose on the tank just needs trimming to suit an get a filler neck hose that's fuel safe for the filler end an join the whole lot together just make sure the pipe is not level an has a slight fall towards the tank I have had no issues you can just make out the black pipe above the rear spring
