Re: Injector collars stuck!

Finally got them out using Martins method as I was afraid to scratch the alloy as ollyw mentioned. Now just got to clean the ports up and get rid of the residue left in there!

Re: Cold Start Problems 2.8i

Although they didn't look dirty I took WUR filters out and cleaned, also cleaned metering flap. Managed to get it running but died again after about 30 seconds. :banghead:

Re: Cold Start Problems 2.8i

Took out 7th injector and getting a good conical spray of fuel when cranked, took off the auxiliary air valve and although you can see through it, should it be a small hole like this?

Leather gear knob recovering

Hi everyone,
Can anyone recommend somewhere to get my leather gear knob recovered? Looking on some old threads i can see Turbo Mike used to do them but not sure if he is still on the forum as his last post said he was moving on?

Thanks,
