Re: Advice on diff input seal

Dave Wrote: You are correct in that the collapsable spacer is not the “perfect” engineering solution and that shims are the ideal solution. However the use of collapsable spacers are widely used in automotive differentials to achieve the correct preload between the two Pinion bearings. Hello Dave, T...

Re: LHD RHD and windscreen wiper park position

Is there any way a UK RHD car could have this wrong side wiper parking or is there a problem with the sellers description of the cars origin? The lack of MOTs could just have been due to storage.

Hello Grant,
If you're interest in factory correctness, neither of what you have listed is correct. The material originally used with an S2 was a type of vinyl.

Re: 4 Speed Manual OD Gearbox Identification

Hello Malky, Unless you plan on always driving the car sedately, Its advisable to upgrade the overdrive to competition spec - springs, pump. UDC/ clutch etc. Overdrive Spares can do this work for around £500.00 plus carriage plus VAT. The link to them follows: http://www.odspares.com/phdi/p1.nsf/......
