Re: MK2 2000 Diff wanted please. Man o/d.

You may also want to specify the ratio, 4.11 or 3.7. Early manual cars were 4.11, auto 3.7. Later cars were all 3.7 but I'm not sure when the change was!

All of this is of course only true for originally 2000-engined cars...

Cheers,
Mike.

Re: Auxiliary oil feed to rockers

I'm inclined to agree with Alec. I had one of these external oil feed pipes on an 'S' estate some years ago. As Alec says, the feed is regulated so although it comes from a main gallery, the restriction reduces the flow so overall oil pressure is not really affected. Now, whether this mod is needed ...

Re: Intermittent starting

There would appear to be a high resistance somewhere between the battery and the starter motor, including the earth return lead. You said that the headlights went out which would also suggest the same. Check the battery connections, both positive and negative and also the lead from the negative to t...

Re: New host company

Yes, it all seems now back to 'Normal'. The company who did the migration to the new platform have been working on it. It looks OK to me too - until we find the next issue!

Cheers,
Mike.

Re: New host company

The UCP (User Control Panel) is also available in 'Quick links' by clicking your name, having logged in.

I still don't know where logout is but it does seem to timeout after a period of inactivity anyway.

Cheers,

Re: New host company

Logging in is (perhaps!) in 'quick links', top left. I don't know where logging out is! It is under investigation.

Cheers,

Re: Spam

Thanks Phil. Yes, it seems that posting was inhibited for everyone. We think due to the forum migration rather than spam. I hope!

Re: Knocking on start up

I'm sure the knocking is the big ends, but whether it is a problem or not is a different matter. The main issue you have is the slow build-up of the oil pressure. I had a similar issue with my PI, especially after changing the engine oil. It has a spin-on filter with it hanging down. In the end I fi...

Re: New host company

I can't seem to log out on a normal PC! (Except by logging in as administrator and then logging out). Some else to get sorted.

Cheers,
