How'd you guys get on.
Tried wie the wife the son and the daughter all at seperate time..nae joy.nae coordination and dinnae listen tae vrabal instructions. so ..Looked out the Gunsons easy bleed wan man sysytem....the seal wouldnae seal....in the end after trying for hours to get it to seal took the rubber seal oot and screwed it tight and it was sealed...joab done in muinutes wie nae grief...AARGH.Just leaving overnight to check no leaks and asemble it all together.Then only one fing to tackle (oh and the emissions) and take it frae there.

Hoping a guid blast before test will sort oot emissions .If not possibly try the 3 front spark plugs.

that Ken...he pops up everywhere like a bad penny.

Macd...not only done and dusted but brand noo MOT in framed pride of place on the mantlepiece much to the rest of the familiy's annoyance.....beginning to think it was family espionage that prevented the bleeding bleeding in the first instance.....Thnak god for gunsons...the simple ideas are the best.

How'd you get on wie the Q2 .I think I am right in saying there no good for sportronics.
