There's one there for just over a tenner, there are 2 different types, one for hatchback and one for sedans, make sure you get the right one if it is in the description of the item.

Hey mate, not sure if it's already been checked but what about the distributor cap on the cam housing? From experience cheaper aftermarket ones tend to wear out pretty quick, the contacts inside them just shred themselves and they cause poor running. Also check for blue powder deposits inside each H...

I used to use cats direct, but I can't find the website now, maybe they've changed name or stopped selling. Never had a problem with them, used them on several occasions.

Sounds good, you can always drill out the old screw which clamps the cable down and fit a new shiny one, Robsey just did that on his motor I believe.

Make sure you give the replacement engine a good check-over or get someone to do so, for peace of mind.

It's a good idea that you have, because you can see every part of the shell, you can repair any issues easily and you can confidently apply rust-proofing products and underseal knowing that every bit is covered and protected for the future. I think it's definitely something worth doing, if you aren'...

I remember uploading 640x480 photos on here from my old phone, as it had a basic camera on it, but ye, now that everyone has high-resolution cameras, the image sizes and resolutions are too large to upload straight to the forum.

It could well be a hacker job, if they have 100 million users then charging everyone 400 bucks to "upgrade" their account is totally senseless. Even a few bucks per user would generate more than enough profit for them.

I see.. Now that is real pathetic. 400 bucks to share some photos... I think they are going to be shut down permanently very soon. Feel sorry for all the people out there whose businesses and long term projects have been ruined, I presume everyone will switch to alternate photo sharing websites now?

What exactly is up with this, I've heard something about photos not being shared or something, last time I used it it was ok, what exactly is wrong?

Not sure on the specifics but it's operated via a cog which is turned by the handle crank. So I'm guessing geared. It runs along plastic sliders I think, it may just need greasing up and being worked from stop to stop a few times..
