    That’s exactly what the beast’s looks like. Wish I got 28 round here!! Robert

    Me too. There’s a place down here that sorts exhausts out. Might have to invest in a sport rear bumper and see about twin pipes. I always did like balance!

    Min needed welding underneath, but they sprayed a bumper & tailgate for me as well, so I’m not complaining. Mind you, I want to have the gbox oil changed & that’ll cost! That and spacers, new water pump and hoses, fix the air con leak, remap the motor, plump up the seats, fit the tailgate spoiler ........ the list goes on!

    Just changed the poly v belt to the alternator. Easy Peasy. Managed it in the drive in quick time! Its a small thing, I know, but the beast will not be screaming like a banshee any more. Little victories!

    Cheers Dan. Visit to my local motorfactors on the way home. This squealing is embarrassing! if it takes a while to get one, I’ll use candle wax to quieten the monster.

    Well I got the car back from the garage, with no charge for fitting the pump either. Mind you, I’ll get him some beers! Now though, it needs a new poly v belt! Not too bad considering how drastic it could have been!! Anyone recommend a good source?

    Well the beast is being repaired as I type. The new pump turned up from Poland a day early, and good as gold, it’s exactly the right pump! It’s now (1819) in the tender care of the garage. Can’t wait to get her back!!!
