Re: Manifold leak. Hot engine. More questions 🤔

I still can’t find the problem. Potentially timing issue so I was wondering how do I know if the distributor is faulty ( with electronic ignition)
Also what the average cost of rebuilding a 1500 sp engine and who would you recommend
Thank you

Re: Mirror arm pin removal

Thank you guys. I ended buying the tool. I know it is over £100 but it took 10min to remove the broken pin.

Hello, I am from Spain. Tell me the cities you are going to visit and I tell you the garages I know.

Have a nice trip!
