Tar Paper locations on S1 3.8?

I am finally getting my car from painting next week and thought of starting with the tar paper. I was wondering if anyone has good shots of original locations. I know that tar paper was present in the following: - doors, inside, https://i.postimg.cc/13S8GJV7/DSCF9467.jpg - behind the B pillar, insid...

I am sorry to be intrusive, but how much does it cost to rechrome a bumper in the UK?

Origianl S1 4.2 on BaT

There is a very nice 4.2 S1 on BaT.

The seller claims that the car has original paint. Yet, the floors seem to be oversprayed - is this the way the cars left from the factory??...

Hard to believe in the plus minus 30%. Are you sure??

Anyway, this setup does not seem to be ready for such tolerances.

Re: SNG Barratt User Group

Julian, I know this is not the proper way to measure the belt, but I think it comes out longest in this way: https://i.postimg.cc/7hKfXW4H/DSC-1438.jpg So the belt is at most 989mm (it's probably about 6-7mm less, as it should be measured in the centre, I believe) https://i.postimg.cc/PxkpqDKj/DSC-1...

Where to find C18285 rubber sleeve for sparking plug terminals

Has anyone managed to find the rubber sleeves for sparking plug terminals? I have managed to source finally a set of Champion spark plug caps, but need to find the rubber sleeves. Holden only has sleeves for the distributor cap (they are different). I was thinking of these: https://www.ebay.co.uk/it...

Hi Julian,

Do you have any more info on the fan belts for the 3.8 S1 engine?

Apparently yours are very short...

Re: Water Pump seal installation

A friend of mine had a 50% success, too. I thought the reason was that no data on how much the seal should be pressed was available and the surface roughness was not defined. The impeller sold by SNG are very rough. So, I searched for the data... I will see with my e-type pump it it will work. Tadek

Re: Water Pump seal installation

Bill, Many thanks - but this is a different seal in comparison to the seal SNG sells. The original was similar to the SNG, I believe, too..

Where is your seal from? Who sells it?
