    Another day, another box

    I got home today to find ANOTHER box. But i won't play a silly game of guess what. I'll just show ya


    I fitted the header tank already, but one of my pipes split. So i thought if i'm changing one, why not change the lot? 3m of 8mm vacuum tube. 1m of superflex 19mm hose to replace the big one that split, and a mix pack of plasric cable covers 2m of each diameter. That should be enough to get me started.

    Just waitin for some BIG superflex now to replace my Rad pipes, then i'm pretty much all Samco'd up!!

    i'll take some engine bay pics when it's come along a bit. it's all a bit of a mish mash at the mo mate. haven't had a chance to get them fitted, i'm missing an engine cover, and my air scoop is at the polishers.

    And yeah Ste i have a 1.8, thats why i'm having to make the hoses up myself from lengths

    yeah. the vacuum hosing to the header tank is 8mmx3mm wall. the bigger hose from the tank to the block is 19mm, 3 ply stuff. but superflex is the only stuff that will bend without kinking, little expensive but its good stuff. and i've got some BIG superflex for the two or 3 big rad hoses, thats bout 35mm i think. Those are all ID/bore btw
