  1. Maybe you'd prefer this one
  2. 30-60 mins out from Edinburgh doesn't take you very far, round the borders is a good run. Otherwise up to tyndrum and down to Oban is a good run also but you'll need more than an hour lol.
  3. Possibly, as only some boots are for stretch fitting.
  4. How far are you looking to travel?
  5. You did grease the cone right? Lol. It takes a fair effort to stretch them over the cone.
  6. Speaking of dangerous modifications..
  7. It's inside the joint, get a hammer and knock the old one off and you'll see it. as GMX has said, get a stretch boot (and cone). I can recommend some if you want to order them.
  8. Cam cover gasket? I've seen quite a few leaky ones lol. The 1.6 engine does have a bit of a habit of drinking oil - the very reason I got rid of my 2001 focus. I put it down to a cracked piston ring or something along those lines as it would go through a litre a week. If you google it you will see you are not alone.
  9. Yup it's definitely a head off job. Burnt valve or crack something along those lines.
  10. Modification or not, the problem was a leaking exhaust? Not helped by the bonnet vents I suppose.
  11. what are you pushing it with? It doesn't take a huge amount of force to push them back, sounds like yours could be seized up.
  12. oops that should have said 'or' but no i don't think it will fix an exhaust bracket lol
  13. Any local motor factors can source them, Eurocarparts list them on their site - very easy to get hold of. You need to have the head removed for inspection before you start ordering valves in any case - you don't know for sure what the damage is yet.
  14. If thats the price for JUST the valves/parts and nothing else you need to look elsewhere lol to add to that job you'll need headgasket (or head set), head bolts, coolant etc and quite a number of hours labour.
  15. £248 for what? just the parts? Because that job is a whole lot bigger than £248 lol
