  1. Aluminium pre filter available not cheap but looks like it will come apart for cleaning. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/293646765927
  2. If your working from the gte manual the feed and return are the wrong way round in the diagram. So worth checking
  3. Thought they were supposed to be a straight swop for the cork ones.
  4. I used powerflex bushes on my lower wishbones and they looked the same as the strongflex ones above. I spent ages removing the old bush making sure I left the sleeve in place only to find the ones I had fitted without the sleeve. So after removing the sleeves they fitted perfectly. It appears there are different types on the market so depends which you have.
  5. Hi and welcome to the club. Link to old post with relevant info Link to gearbox oil on eBay https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l2632.R2.TR3.TRC2.A0.H0.TRS0&_nkw=93165290&_sacat=179487 still available from Vauxhall dealers and may be cheaper if they will accept club discount
  6. Just thought I’d check mine now I know where it goes, only to find it’s already there. We’re they fitted to later models from standard ?
  7. Thanks Herman so engine needs to come out or at least head off to fit. So that hopefully won’t be happening for a while.
  8. Pretty sure these fit into a drain hole in the top of the head. To help keep a puddle of oil sat on top. just wondered if they just pressed or hammered in. My worry would be it coming loose and bouncing around the top. Sounds to me like a piece of pipe the right size would do the same job.
  9. Oil level raisers now available on ebay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/293627979464 Is this a worth while mod to a standard Cih and how are they fitted.
  10. Think these have been advertised before. Good starting price for the amount on offer. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/184328495416 Thought I’d seen it before.
  11. Interesting clear-out from someone. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/114259053668
  12. Pretty sure the inner A post isn’t available unless someone’s cutting up a car. Check out Andy Abbotts build thread for lots of relevant and useful pictures.
  13. Ok thanks I'll give it a miss then.
  14. It's a Coupe, and my thought was protection from water/condensation from modern fuels whilst the car sits idle over the winter. Not sure if anything is needed or not. Just an idea as the tank is out.
  15. As I currently have my tank out to replace pipes I was thinking it’s a good idea to treat it with some sort of sealer. it looks in really good condition on the outside but obviously no idea on the condition inside. Any recommendations or thoughts. I was thinking something like this https://www.rust.co.uk/product/tank-re-new-kit-21
