Cheap Fix For Mk1 Leaking Pas

28 October 2014 - 10:44 PM

For all who have advisories on leaking power steering from the pipe union to the pump you don't need a new union or pipe at fords extusionate prices all you have to do to replace the nylon washer is go to B+Q or any plumbing shop an buy a pack of nylon tap washers for around 1.20 for 3 you will have to file the inner out a tad to get it to fit over the union but once on it will seal no problem did my mates this morning worked a treat .

Power Steering Leak Help

24 September 2014 - 06:27 PM

Change anyone advice on a power steering leak from the union on the pump I have just replaced my mates engine on his 1.8 2000 zetec all working ok the prob I have is that the power steering fluid is absolutely pouring out of the union to the pump it's as tight as I can go with it and after asking they say there is no seal just a tight fit stops it leaking.
Anyone else experienced this or am I missing something even tried a different pump still the same
Any advice pointers appreciated

Pdr Dent Removal Recommendation

26 July 2014 - 11:06 AM

Hi all had my rear door dent last week when my dad fell into it 18st ouch .know I wish I had taken a photo as it was a sizeable dent which I popped out but it left four other dents .so decided to look around for paintles dent removal and came across this guy Ian McMahon dent finish .co.uk covers Liverpool Wirral chester cheshire and north wales .
He came out yesterday and spent 31/2 hours doing the job and he did advise me before hand as to where the dents where on the reinforcement pads that he wouldn't be able to use his push bars which in his opinion would of made a perfect job so had to use his pulling pads which he said does not give a good a finish as the bars .well to say I'm made up with his efforts is an understatement well impressed he said to me that's 95% standard well I'm more than happy with that just can't tell where they where at all so any one wanting a recommended dent repairer this guy comes highly recommended from me
