    OOooh! That's a shrewd blow.

    On my TD, all I can say is the aluminum bracket at the gearbox mount on My Skyhook gear box broke in half about a year after fitting it, Metal fatigue. I removed it as it rattled.
    If you have access to some 1/16" s/steel plate you could make a replacement and fabricate a hanger there. Same way Steve did and use the two bell housing bolts to locate it.
    So far I have not thought ...

    And just as a matter of interest, how much does it cost btw, to run a car in Singapore?

    I don't know where you guys drive but up here in Maine the heater is normally on winter or Summer (nights) and there has been no need for any on/off valve or thermostat control unit. With the hood down (The only way to go) the only thing the heater will heat is the drivers left leg (RHD). This does help combat the draft coursing through the gap around the door.

    "Right, targets for my weekend:

    1) change oil
    2) check pressure relief valve is working -- "

    It suggest that you reverse that order.

    And in any event, since you've confirmed that the oil hasn't done any amount of real work, there won't be anything wrong with it, with regards to your oil pressure.

    Colin. The "grease nipples", more properly called zerk fittings, were 1/4"-28tpi as originally fitted. But, on old cars, you are never quite sure what you are going to find.
