1. The butterfly - is it supposed to sit dead level? As mine doesn't. It sits a bit higher at the back, so it's sort of tilted forward/down at a slight angle. Or tilted backwards....i can't remember which way now. Point is, it's not level, it tilts. This is just curiosity ..... for those from the temp guage thread I'm not worrying!!! lol.
Attempt to show it with this pic:
2. I've cleaned the main part & the butterfly & the underside. Just need to polish it up to get rid of the staining, but should i be spraying any carb cleaner into any of those hoses?
the one in the following pic especially, that is stamped up with writing, has brown shit inside it that seems to stink quite strongly of vinegar
Very small hole which has cack residue in there (which runs into the mini 90deg hose shown in the top left above pic):
Squirt inside or leave?
3. I take it the following pic is the inlet manifold?....
Now from what i've read, it's like, something of a hanging offence if you even get a microscopic hair in there. It looks caked up to chuff though. Is it best to just leave well alone or should i do something?
4. And also, me being me couldn't do this job without ballsing something up lol. Have taken the electrical connector off a couple times before. It's stiff bloody thing but got it off.
This has snapped off the actual connector
The middle bit of the grey holding clip is now partly split:
I'm guessing that it's not THAT bad, but...
Chances of me driving along & the car dying on me due to this are...........?
