Re: Front suspension overhaul

Hello Llessur, unpeening the top nut is easy with a normal pin punch. You may need to make up a spanner to undo that nut, although it can be drifted loose with a punch it damages the nut as it is soft. Cost depends on the quality of parts you use, I prefer Koni dampers but I'm not sure if they are s...

Re: Thoughts on engine refresh

Hello Llessur, I would do a compression, or leak down test of the engine and from that decide what to do.

Re: Petrol sell by date / unleaded head recognition

Re: Mk 2 Master Cylinder

Hello Forkie,

I found that they were not available some time back and a kind member sent me a second hand one which I then had reconditioned.

I didn't think about going the twin route but assume it still uses the same servo?
