Re: clutch

I think the difference is that the pinto 5 speed boxes have a longer input shaft compared to the 2.8 box but the spline amounts are the same

The sticker on the back says 1.6 GL
The boot is a different colour from the rest of the car though, obviously it's been replaced. The car is actually a 1.6 LS.

Andrew.
Fair play Andrew - I was so lazy in my detective work I didn't even notice the colour was different! :lol:

Re: Laser 1600

I'm pretty sure the dizzys are the same? Can't think of any reason why they'd be different??

Re: Oily Sparks

Re: Oily Sparks

Haha true! I've decided to start throwing money at this by the looks of it... My hoses don't match and it's annoying me :lol: I purchased a load of Samco hoses before but I think I got the wrong set as there was one or two that I couldn't figure out where to put and guessed I'd got a set for an auto...

Fair play to Burtons - even with everything happening they've still managed to get my order here in 48 hours!

Re: MOT's extended for six months

My guess would be that they update the extra six months on the day or something? Andrew's was due yesterday so they've bounced it on six months yesterday, mind are still showing as due on the 22nd and 30th April so guessing they will be updated soon...?

Re: Windscreen Cracked

Hiya,

That's good to know thanks. I do have it booked in with my insurance company to replace it but they've put everything on hold at the moment - apparently there is some reason they have decided to close at the moment and put any works on hold... Not sure why :roll:

Thanks

Re: Oily Sparks

Thanks for the replies guys - I do have the correct spreader plates not a mess of washers so I should be OK - can save a bit of cash there I hope! And thanks Paul, I know there is an order to it and I'm sure I followed it last time - when I tried to bodge it back together last time to check it had w...
