Steering lock - Part number 160337

Exciting times for anyone who's currently starting their car with a screwdriver. Rimmer Bros have had the long-obsolete and prone to falling apart steering column lock re-manufactured - they'll be receiving 1000 of them around 31st Jan. Part number 160337 - fits Stag, Saloon and Dolomite, maybe othe...

Rubber PAS steering coupler

Now the engine's out of my 2500 I've been able to take a good look at the rubber steering coupler and it seems to be shot: https://i.imgur.com/WlDCr5il.jpg I'm very wary of modern rubber components as from experience they tend only to last a few months before falling apart - this seems to be especia...

Re: Lifting car for engine removal - how does everyone do it?

That was kind of my thinking too - I'm not a fan working under cars on axle stands - it's always in the back of my mind that it might slip off somehow (even though I'm always very careful about using them and give the car a good rock before I go anywhere near underneath it). I thought there might be...

Re: Lifting car for engine removal - how does everyone do it?

That's my plan at this stage - the box is out so the engine can just come out from the top. I had intended to reinstall in the reverse order (i.e. engine in from above, box in from below) but thought I should at least explore the possibility of mating tho two out of the car and installing from below...

Lifting car for engine removal - how does everyone do it?

Just after people's thoughts as to how to raise the car high enough at the front to refit the engine and box from below. By my reckoning the front valance will need to be a minimum of 700mm off of the floor for the engine to slide under with the head on. I guess taking the head and studs off would b...

Getting engine onto stand

I haven't finished removing my engine yet so this is a bit preemptive but what's the best way of securing it to an engine stand? Presumably the existing bellhousing bolts will be too short and I'll need to source some longer high tensile ones? Any other tips? Can I just mount using any of the bellho...
