Pile's 164

Hi All. I got the use of a garage ramp today, so got a few jobs done this morning.
1 - Changed the oil (duckhams fully synthetic) and filter. No problems, but i wouldn't fancy doing it without the 2 poster.

2 - Flushed the cooling system withs Holts 2 part cleaner, although the existing coolant was as clean as a whistle.

3 - Fitted a new (genuine) thermostat and gasket. Old one came out a treat.Last owner copaslipped everything. Temperture guage working better and faster. Good job done well.

The car is booked into my regular garage next week for a timing belt kit, so i'll let you know how that goes.

Big up VISA.
