The car suspension (rear beam) has been adjusted more times than i care to mention but is close to being finalised ... going for full tracking tomorrow.

I planned to do an early service as the new engine had been in storage for a period of time. I am not sure how garages turn around a service in 1-3 hours ... seems to take me so much longer.
Just completed Air filter, Oil filter, fuel filter, Plugs, Engine Oil, gerbox oil, bleed brakes, steering fluid and the niggle list: reconditioned injectors, adjust handbrake to give more rear braking, check all sensors, doors closing, wipers, front seat rails, boot closure, drivers window and reverse light and throttle cable adjustment.

massive thanks to Mad Professor and his injector service Thumbs up I now have silent injectors.

the aftermarth ...


reconditioned injectors














Fitted Oil catcher (thanks Jose for the help)

I could not find a way to incorpoate the one way valve in the oil return OEM setup ... so just used two pipes for the oil catcher.

Any advice on this welcome, ty.

Tightening the handbrake gives the rear brakes less travel. When the foorbrake is applied the rear brakes bind faster/harder in relation to the fronts.

Why do you need more rear braking? Do you have a problem with the rear brakes?

The rears felt like they were not working at all. It might have been copper grease on the rear pads which I cleaned up with brake cleaner when I adjusted the handbrake. Or taking it easy for the last month with no blasts prior to servicing the car yesterday. The brakes might just need a good work out to remove any glazing from driving around slowly.

I am a bit concerned about ditching the standard one way valve in the setup above. Blocking off the recirc and adding a breather makes a lot of sense.
