I'd take a chance on the warranty it's 30 quid more than another pump and it's only good for 90 days, just my thoughts !!

Cheers

Think I'd go that way too, and maybe find the pump from somewhere else if poss, surely got to be a few being broken?

Although its none too warm out there and not due to get any warmer soon and I guess you need it done quickish :cry:

Various types of pump plus you need special locking tools to keep the timing right and extract the pump they cost 70-90 quid

Plus tonight I've discovered I have 2 faulty injectors leaking of rail pressure so I've whipped them out for recon

A little more progress today, after taking swmbo to work I came home an rushed thru the list of jobs she had left for me, then managed to steal 3 hours garage time,
Started off by cleaning the old sealant off my rocker. Cover and using Hylomar and a new cork gasket, I the. Fitted it and torqued it down, I know it seems excessive to torque up a rocker cover but these pinto rocker covers are bitches for leaking oil if you over tighten them.

So the. I replaced the oil filter ready for refilling the oil, I'm thinking of running a 15/40w diesel oil through the engine for a first. Run up to clean any gunk left in the galleries out (for those of you wondering why a diesel oil, they are heavy in degreasing and detergent agents, they make a wonderful flushing agent.)

My carbs are all reconditioned and ready for refitting so time for some carb porn

So next job was to refit them, new manifold gasket and nice shiny new stainless M8 nuts that done I then fitted new air filter retaining bolts and gaskets.

Finished job

Then it was time to go collect the boss again, once home I got " you might as well put those pictures up"
Now I'm a lucky fella because I have a spare room downstairs I use as a den, it's my solitude from the world lol well apart from her ironing and anything else that needs a temporally re home, I have my ps3 and car stuff in here and was expecting my car prints would need to be hung in here but no some of them have been given pride of place in the hallway (admittedly the 3 mini prints are hers)

Hopefully ill get some more garage time tomorrow.

So it's bloody cold today once again I had to take swmbo to work, that done I ca,e home to find all the mains sockets tripping, bit of investigation reveals a rotten socket with a broken neutral bit of electrickety repairs and all is now good.

So out in the garage I refitted the alternator bracket then the water pump pulley and belt, that done I made a joiner for the exhaust and refitted the exhaust system all good.
Bit of a tidy up and then I decided to give into the cod and come in

Well three new injectors later and the mondeo is cured cost £155 per injector £40 testing of the old units 3 of which are fubar a new socket to remove the injectors £6.99 and its all done. Thank god.

Now more enjoyable matters, I have finished re plumbing the kit and after a test blat around the block can confirm I need a new top rad hose, to be ordered payday as I'm broke. Also I have found a verticle float fuel sender that I shall be purchasing at the same time, now all that remains is to fit the new super seal plugs and sockets to the appropriate parts of the loom set the carbs up and remove the rollbar for powdercoating, manufacture a new top deck refit the dash and new harness and voila we'll I hope
