Re: Bottom hose heater take off too short

I’ve had words, that one to the right in the picture is from ESM, another one I’ve got is only a bit longer, but none of them look like the second picture which is off an advert and which looks like the one I’ve got on

Re: Timing chain replacement

Thanks Phil, I’ve bought some shims in case I need to move the fan out. The previous cover had had the breather cut and welded. Anyway here’s hoping

But it does look like the door end brackets are the right way round. Is there evidence of the arm being re-riveted back on? It does look like one of the arms has been bent a bit.
