Good going, though it would have been interesting to see the gorillas at work - hope you had plenty of bananas to keep them sweet! :lol:

I had the old 948 gearbox removed earlier for replacement so only the engine to transport home.
Into the trailer and home for inspection.

With trusty old caravan step and "old navy" block and tackle,the job should be ok with care.
Thanks for reading.

Hello All again, just thought I'd ask again on a separate post....

Has anyone changed the rain excluder rubbers on the doors of a four door before ( or obviously a 2 door) assuming the system is the same-- and if so--or any other help you can offer or suggest, this is going to be my next job this winter when on down time with the engine.

Thanks for reading.

Regards

Hello Cliff. Nice to see you are keeping the faith. I could surely do with that car turning gadget on your little cartoon. You've given me inspiration to try and get my auld mog 'Yarrow' in the garage tomorrow and dry it out a bit ready for welding underneath.
Good luck with your rain excluders, I need to change my moss encrusted ones also.
Know nowt, hope to learn summat!

Nice to hear it mate. Dont know whether you know this or not-I made my own rottisseri,which prompted the cartoon. Despite the funnies it worked quite well BUT there are all sorts to buy now on the market. All for around 2
£200-300 so no brainer as they say.
Set up up with some pics as you start mate --we loves pics on 'ere :D
I intend documenting the door rain excluder changes as I get around to them on my ---sitting down to workbench ;)

Hi Cliff.
The original type are easy enough to get out with the window wound right down and a flat blade to pop the spring clips out. But I replaced them with a different type of seal off a Mini, proper squeegy type that actually keeps most of the water out of the door and add a bit of bling :)

Cliff,

I just kept flushing mine through to make sure there was adequate flow.

And the places I could clean where it really mattered, thermostat housing and where the water pump fits I used some wet and dry.

I also had the backplate off, having had a couple of experiences of rear core plugs leaking, so they were removed as were all core plugs so you can stick a hose in all of those.

Don't blame me if you get soaked doing it though :D

Sean.

Crushed dishwasher tablets in hot water if you can find a way of sealing off the engine and flushing them through all they its better if you can introduce them when its all plumbed in, that way it clears the heater as well,

Thanks for that,, both lots good advice- now id never have thought about crushed dishwasher tabs but that makes really good sense thinking it through--it shift all sorts in my machine in the the kitchen-bloody good suggestion.
Too cold in the garage tonight so away tomoz to get another heater. I removed the leaking radiator---and never got it replaced :oops:
Thanks for reading,and the help.

Hello again all.
Just an update.
Had a bit of a setback, so not expecting a good deal of personal hands on movement by me personally.
But i have a couple of chums who are standing by in the wings so to speak...so there may be some news???
