    Collected the D3 after getting a 140K service and having the RAI fitted.
    And fitting a new alternator to replace the one which sounded like a supercharger.
    And fitting a new radiator to replace the weeping one.
    And replacing the water pump - if all those above bits are taken out, hell, why not do the water pump as well.
    And replace the fan belt while they are at it.
    And replace the 15 year old radiator hoses.
    And it now drives like a dream again.
    Thanks PCB

The sensors you have are a little different in design so you may not need the rubber. The alternative is to use metal valve stems.
    Donít use metal stems off-road. One day youíll pay the price!

    There are different lengths of stem available and the shorter ones tend to be less flexible.

    Another option is heat shrink (glue backed version) shrunk over the casing to space the metal away from the rim a little.

The mount clips in place quite securely but is helped with auto grade double sided tape.


    John, this little fella up here doesn't look too sure about it being down there
    If at first you do not succeed, maybe your just no good and should quit!

    Packed the car ready to head away tomorrow after work and a quick look over the car has revealed a bulge in the sidewall of one of the tyres, the spare already has a plug in the tread near the sidewall.

    I had planned on running out these tyres over the next month or two as this trip will be pretty much highway driving but now with 2 tyres compromised looks like I am up for a set of tyres sooner rather than later.

    Now I have to take the car into work tomorrow and start the race to see what tyres are in stock in Bendigo, hopefully ATís by Pirelli, Hankook, Maxxis or Toyo.

    Cheers

    OT, but can anyone recommend a product that will clean off the brake dust pitting on the wheels as seen in Moggymitch's pic?

    Not sure if it will fix pitting but this product is excellent for cleaning wheels. Their other products are good too and they're an aussie company.
