    Dump Valve fitted & car washed!! *PICS*

    Dump valve and all necessary kit arrived this morn all ok - packaged really well - thanks T-Bone!!

    Took under an hour to fit and apart from reading up on various 'How To' guides im a bit of a novice when it comes to engines!

    In theory it is very simple but the one thing that is really fiddly/irritating is one of the bolts that need to be undone - so little space and thats what took up all of the time!! The rest was fairly easy!!

    started her up and all ok, no engine warning lights, car cutting out etc, took her for a drive and it is the same as before............plus this Extremely LOUD WTSCHHHHHHHHH!!!

    Heres some pics;

    the angled pipe was my doing, I just went to a motor factor and bought it as I made the kit up from bits

    it actually sits the DV in quite a good place so the only thing it contacts on is the bulk head insulation
