Angle grinder works best on those, New arm but they need it really as new bearings won;t remove all of the play

Miles angle grind the arm? I can get a new arm and folk set - does fitting a new set make much difference?

So I set to work with a hammer, drift and junior hacksaw. Hammer the pin in stages from the front accessible side to the rear. Cut the protrusion and continued tapping. 2 cuts in total and pin out. Took about an hour.

not sure if to replace all the engine sensors for new or reuse the old ones, same with the oil and water pipes, reusing will save quite a few quid..

You sure did dodge a bullet there! I believe it wasn't the first and probably not the last engine ruined by the metal gauge in the breather and filler pot.

I'd say replace the temperature sensor for the ECU with a genuine Bosch one. Keep the rest as is if you need to save some money.

If the dash senders are showing the right values and the terminals are in good physical condition I'd stick with them. Remind me next time you are here because I think I have some VGC ones left over from my car after the custom dash went in.

Nice sunny day, instead of watching the marriage of some American trailer trash to a jumped up pipsqueak I painted the clutch arm and the oil cooler.

 

Pretty much coming to the end now- finally!

 

(apart from seeing if it actually runs!)
