If it's the same bit that I'm thinking of, I once did a repair on that on my mate's Cavalier, I used a small bolt, put that through the slider and put a nut on the end to secure it. Window still works fine on his motor.

No idea on the exact torque figures but I just do them up as tight as they will go, with a bit of leverage on the end of the socket bar, and a couple more firm tugs on the handle.
If you're feel following Telegram Sam's project thread, then yes, you should see that protecting as much exposed metal as possible will help for the future. Make sure all surfaces are dry and clean before applying protection layers.
Nice photos, looks like a lovely scenic cruise. The V6s had 170bhp so with yours putting out roughly the same power, you've got the go and the economy as well. Really good output for a 20SEH
That does look nice, They do go for silly money but then you're getting history and originality beyond anything else in comparison.
Military vehicles are definitely the way to go, they look right just about everywhere they go.
Excellent stuff there mate, those cam cover bolts can shear off just for a laugh, when I replaced my old 8valver gaskets, I always replaced the bolts with some black allen-head bolts, they lose the originality image of the block but means no helicoils or drilling in the future...
Do your other 4 Cavaliers feel lonely when you're taking photos of the 5th one? lol.
Looks good, those steel exhausts rust for fun, all mine always did, looked shiny on day one, few weeks later they looked like they've seen years of life.. Just how they are.
Well said Dave, I couldn't agree more.. Get it all out mate, I share your opinion of this world, and I used to hold the crown of letting my drunken mind go on a rage at absolutely anything, as I'm sure most of you guys remember...
Aren't we supposed to insure and tax cars before we buy them nowadays? lol.
Well she'll make a lovely show car, now that you know she's one of the last ones made.
My problem is remembering which screw goes where...!
Yep, I know what you mean I usually have the same problem!
Very good there James, she'll breathe a little easier now, any gunk in the breather system just reduces efficiency, especially on these larger engines. Not so bad once you've done it once or twice, good effort.
There's a relay for it in the main fusebox under the dash on the driver's side, pop off the panel, it's one of the relays on the upper side of the fusebox, can't remember exactly which one it is, I'm sure it's one of the large square ones, that's what makes the buzzing noise, could be a case of wigg...
Very nice, I was expecting more technical information about the powerplants in real life applications though, but watching how meticulously they were designed and built is also fascinating. I didn't know they actually fitted them to the Astras, I thought that was a purely boy-racer's conversion job....

If that's the case then it didn't seem to make my old V6 any quieter, the noise that beast put out was unbelievable!
