Re: kühlspeed Ram Air Scoops from £96+p&p

Forgive me if I've missed this somewhere but is there a set for a late crew cab available? Mine has three x three set of vents on each side so I would need a mini scoop (maybe deeper?) that's only 3 slots high for each side?

anyone tried this "Duxback" windscreen treatment?

Hi all, Just read about this https://www.halfordsautocentres.com/car-care/duxback-windscreen looks interesting and I'm interested in giving it a go (although I hope I don't get charged for 2 windscreens! :bounce: ) My wipers are so lame, I use Rain-x all the time but this seems more effective from w...

Re: How do people deal with/fix stripped sump bolt threads?

sounds like a good idea to me Lee. I'm going to have to do the hokey kokey again with my engine oil though - in, out, in, out Will Loctite hold the bolts in when "cold"? I don't want to try this and then have the new bolt spin when I try to put the new nuts on after it's done That will send me over ...

Re: How do people deal with/fix stripped sump bolt threads?

It's not studs Lee, it's just bolts. The bottom of the sump has six holes, not six studs if you know I mean. When I go to tighten 2 of the six bolts in order to secure the sump plate on, they just spin with a bit of friction, not tighten. And this is where the oil is leaking past those threads. Pain...

How do people deal with/fix stripped sump bolt threads?

Hi all, been watching oil drip while my bus is standing cold and it appears to be coming though alongside two of the six sump bolts (the little 10mm ones with the brass washers). How can I fix this? The bolts are only supposed to be torqued up lightly but on these two bolts in particular it seems th...
