Yeah not expecting replies as such as some of the updates are pretty boring but good to see people still on the forum, quieter since facebook groups popped up and all that!

Gave the Pug a well overdue coolant drain and flush this weekend, and solved my coolant leak - the thermo to rad hose was split slightly. New one fitted from Baker BM and all is well...for now!! 
 

it’s also the cars 30th birthday this month so treated it to a full machine polish! 190k miles so far on the clock

MOT time yesterday and all well, aside from an advisory for rear fuel rubber pipe starting to corrode, so need to sort that.

 

Few other little jobs need looking at as still got a bit of a leak and I think it might be coming from between the block the thermostat housing.

 

Also got a bit of a rattle from the cam backplate which has been there for years which I need to have a look at!

 

And also clearly need to drive it more as only did 245 miles in the last year!

She's a beauty mate. Would you consider selling please? This forum used to be great now it's dead and covered in adverts?

Thanks bud! Hah, this one is staying with me to the grave I'm afraid!

 

Few jobs done this week that were well overdue:

 

- New thermostat housing cap, new thermostat and seal. Had a minor coolant leak for pretty much the last 6 years - now finally solved, really should have done this before!

- Replaced rubber hosing from fuel pump to pipes under car. Old ones were perishing and definately needed doing!

- Replaced oil tower and oil filler pipe. The filler pipe had split at the bottom, did an oil change, chatting away to my mate and didn't notice oil was pissing out over the floor! Baker BM to the rescue with a new pipe and all is well again.

 

Just about to hit 190K miles.
