2 dash tops for sale

I have 2 Mk3 dashboard tops for sale, both are cracked but frames are good for anyone wishing to buy the CC replacement for which you need a frame to fit it to. Better to have a spare frame so you can do the fitment of the CC dash top and then put the whole assembly into your car rather than taking ...

Re: Capri 2.8 spitting coolant

If your water pump is leaking then defo change it, 2.8 system cannot afford to have any leaks as this lets the hot water which is at boiling point become steam which is what then causes it to bubble over like a kettle. You will hopefuuly cure your boil over problem by eradicating any leaks, i even h...

Re: Any experts on cologne engine rebuilds

I was not considering rings as compressions are good, all round 145 psi. as it has only started smoking this bad after refitting heads and the fact both sides are smoking a lot the only thing I can think of as common to both sides and would allow a lot of oil leakage is the intake manifold

Re: Any experts on cologne engine rebuilds

Thanks peter, will do some dry install gap checks as i am sure this is the problem . If putting some precautionary sealant on, do you put it around all the orifices in the gasket where the orange seals are on the gasket, hope that makes sense
