    Got one more bush on piglet done b4 the "rush". Car was towed in yesterday with RAA diagnosed ignition module failure. Well it wasnt the module i found out and to the customers cost. I just did what was asked. So without manuals or diagnostic "aids", i put a new coil on and off she went. Cool. Squeal noise was aweful. Alt belt was shredded. New belt fitted. Serviced the car. Oil pouring out the oil cooler which is fitted below the oil filter. That explains why the oil filter was so insanely tight. Removed oil filter and undone the big nut. Fitted a new oil filter seal under the oil cooler. Oil leak solved. Unfortunatly the customer is getting a bill that is worth more than the car, IMHO, but he wanted it done. I think he loves this old 4 cyl ford Telstar. Runs sweet tho... im over working today. Nice hot shower is calling me.....
    Cheers, Rod

    Today i manage to get the last 2 bushes removed and new ones fitted. Anti sieze on the bolts. Left loose till the weight is on them. Got both new wheel cylinders mounted and thats as far as i got till all hell broke loose and had an extremly busy afternoon. Will mount brake shoes and make new brake pipes tomorrow if time permits. No pics but u all know what it looks like. Cheers

    Little side story...bloke came in with a 2007 Kluger. Rattling its head off, big trail of engine oil. He said oil light was on and making a funny noise. Hes a Teacher. Knows 0 about cars. So when I was free i put 3 litres of oil in it to get it safely on the hoist. Took the plastic splash tray off and started it up. Oil ****ing out a rubber hose leading from oil filter to some other round thing. Suspect a centrifugal filter. Tiny pin hole could have caused this bloke to blow the engine. The part needed wasnt available locally, so i got the trusty VT commy power steer supply hose and cut the 90 elbow out and replaced the hose. Added another 2 litres of oil, 5 in total, and he was on his way. $120 lighter. Cheaper than a new engine i think. Cheers Rod
