During sunday I replaced my knackered Bosch rear calipers with a set of second hand Lucas units which I have cleaned up and painted.
Fitted new GM pads and disks and brake fluid aswell
And by doung this I have cured my problem of having no handbrake
No mods needed to get them to fit, used the existing handbrake cable as it is the same part number aswell, plug and play
The old Bosch units (taken whilst painting them when I first got the car)
1 Lucas Caliper cleaned and painted
New GM Disks and Pads
Also fitted a new 120 Amp alternator which I bough from eBay as my one was shagged lol, the old one whistled when turning it by hand The 120a unit was a direct replacement for the 100a unit fitted to the car already (100a units where fitted to most Astras with Air-Con)
I had problems with my Coolant Temperature Sensor which was causing the car to run really badly and making the fans run almost constanly, the sensor also caused major overfueling, when I removed the plugs they where dripping lmao
All this because of this sensor going wrong (inside the sensor is a resistor which increases and decreases the resistance of the circuit to the fan when the coolant gets hot and cold. When its really hot I guess there is less resistance causing the current to flow to the fan.
The faulty sensor
