In the words of beyonce ...lenny hasn't put a ring on it lol so its my boyfriend chat hassen lol
Yeah lenny research ....I can imagine ye calling me from drive to go out and see ye squashed under it dunno what id do first laugh or take a picture lol
Lenny your links in the signature should stay mate it's easier than the search function. Good luck with the yota
Calm down pal,
Just click on my picture on the left side of the thread,
It will bring you to my profile page where all my guides are linked,
And yota never heard it called that before, over here its called a "bzr" or "twin cam"
Well today I changed the complete thermostat housing thermostat and sensor, the reason behind this was two fold, first since buying the car the temp gauge never even gets to the quarter position, its always being half way between cold and the quarter, and secondly when I fitted the tuning box I noticed water on top of the gearbox and the tell tale red marks around the housing plus was loosing a small amount of water, so thought well on the temp front either thermostat or sensor dodgy and on the leak front the plastic housing has dis-formed causing a leak. Well Its fitted but temp still the same so I will have to have a think why its showing so cold, pipes are hot, hot air comes from heater and when you put it into test mode the needle sweeps as it should, Next stage will be to short connection out to see if gauge reads hot and ill go from there, will post a couple of pics later of process.
Good to have this job done before the frost comes in mate,
May have made the seal worse
I'll arrange a date for him ...little play date ...give me a wee break from him lol
your so condescending,
As result, I'll leave you in the car with no radio and no windows open, while I have a cup of tea with hassen,
Had to show this to my wife and she had a good laugh reading it.
Lenny is always welcomed for a play date. I will get the tools and the cars ready
Btw, Halfords are having a deal on jack stands and other tools. Check it out:http://www.halfords....tegoryId_212549
Thanks for the link mate,
I'll need to get some tools for servicing the Levin, oil filter clamp,
And I'm not a fan of axle stands but I'd like a set of ramps instead,
Can keep the wheels on just drive up, bit more expensive but I think the support better.
Lenny, if you are going to visit Co. Offaly, you are more than welcome to pop over to Tullamore if it's on your way and have a cup of tea or something stronger! Along with Mrs Lenny and the kids as well. My wife keeps telling me that it's weird that I talk about you and what you been doing to your car without having met you. Pfff... I swear...I am not crazy
Thanks very much hassen that's very kind of you,
If I'm passing your way though it will mean I'm going to collect some Levin parts,
So I'd be on my own in the focus with the back seat folded to allow space for parts,
I was close by your area at 5am on the 05th September,
I was on nights that week 11-7 and I finished work 4 hours early to travel to killbeggan in order to collect a Levin interior for 100 euro,
Got to the 24hr Topaz station on the tulamore road at 04:25am bought a cup of tea with 3 sugars, 2 x Red bull and a snickers,
I then asked him to charge me for 20 diesel too,
And he says "are you going to drink the diesel too?"
I then had a sleep in the rear of the focus from 5-8am I must say its very spacious with the rear seat fold properly,
I then phoned the seller at 08:25 and collected the interior, I was home by 11
I'll let you know if I'm down that way some time mate,
Or if you would like a han with anything on the focus its no problem,
I knew a guy, who's missus won a 32" led TV back in 2004,
She won it on a local radio station, back when the first came out,
So Gary came home from work and was told by his missus to pick up the prize the following day,
Gary was working down the country the next day,
As result he collected the TV before work,
Since Gary's an electrician driving a hatch back mk3 Mondeo,
His boot compartment was full f tools,
So he slid the TV box in on the back seat footwell's, and off to work he went,
Later that evening Gary was driving home,
And much like dan, he had a car u his rear on approaching traffic lights,
Gary spotted the cops at the junction and knew he couldn't continue,
So he braked hard, hoping the car behind wouldn't rear end him,
Upon stopping Gary felt a thump on the back of his seat,
He assumed the car behind had rear ended him,
Gary kept out of the car and without checking for damage t his vehicle proceeded to give the driver of the car behind him an ear full, standing at their window,
When mid flight he remberd the LCD TV he had put on the back footwell's that morning,
The driver behind hadn't rear ended him,
When he braked hard,
The TV box flipped forward, hitting his seat,
Resulting in him assuming the car behind had hit him lmao
Better not crash or bash it then - that would be expensive!
there are fibreglass replicas available but almost as expensive,
Mine doesn't have those bits though, just has the standard BZR body kit,
I'd like to fit a bomex body kit with TRD spoiler but since the parts are rare, if I was to fit then my Levin may become a target,
So I'll keep it subtle, anyways a body kit only adds weight, better off spending on a set of Toda high lift cams
Regarding other parts,
I've found a guy in co.offally (centre of Ireland) who has a shed with 4 levins excluding there chassis, all parts from them categorized and on shelves, much chapter than importing from china plus helps the working man make a few quid too, and I'm all for that,
Good chance I may pick up the centre speaker grill cover for the 8" sub from him,
Thats great to hear!! I'm so jealous mate!
Just waiting for my funds to increase then i'm getting the same done.
My management light keeps coming on (DPF related). I keep clearing the code but the interval between me clearing it and it returning is getting shorter and shorter by the day so I hope I can get it done before it completely clogs and puts me into limp mode!!
I'm gonna fit a 2.5" stainless steel exhaust too just to free up some more power but dont know where to start with that! LOL
Your dpf chamber is already 2.5" on inlet and exit,
The connected flexi down pipe is also 2.5"
So you just need from flexi to tip 2.5" pipe
You going duplex or single exit ?
