    Alan, no, never removed the moustache. Don't know whether the previous owner did but it doesn't look like it has ever been taken off.

    I'll get some sealant when I get a new gasket. Presumably, you mean each side of the oil pump canister flange?

    Have lost my contact details for Peter Caldwell. rim RAY probably knows. If you would be so kind Ray.

    Your coolant should be getting nowhere near boiling.

    Do you have an electric fan? If not then your cooling capability is severely compromised at low speeds.

    What is the provenance of your rad? If unknown then a flush or reconditioning may well be called for. A radiator can appear to be in good condition but actually be operating well below its potential.

    I agree 100% Steve.

    Actually unless I get some recommendation it would appear Speedograph will be my choice

    Speedograph Richfield has done the best, most consistent work for me, including gearsets to change the calibration for 4.3 differentials, 5-speed transmissions, etc. They are HIGHLY recommended, even though it is a hassle to send the instruments to the UK. I find a well-packed flat rate box best, into which a complete set of instruments can be fitted.

    Have to agree with Guy as experienced similar symptoms and cured by enriching the mix. SU manual tells all. Yes backflush rad and change coolant and check valve clerances.

    Your idea of decent clearly differs from mine. If DIY then yes 500 quid is about right, but I think it is a fair assumption that most of us are not going to achieve a similar finish to a guy who does it for a living. Paying only 500 quid to a pro will get a laugh, but I guess may get a topcoat of knock-off celly from the local Delboy.
