yeah standard 306 hose shortened, Miles has mentioned a 406 hose that would fit straight into the housing and have no heat exchanger takeoff, saves buying an expensive adapter.

[quote="demondriverdan"]Ahhh, I see. So a 205 top hose chopped and connect in to a 306 top hose? I was thinking about getting rid of the heat exchanger so I should be able to just use a 205 top hose then, with a push fit adapter in the thermostat housing?


What I've done with my Jap rad which is same diameter top hose as 205 ....you convert your thermostat housing to Baker BM adaptor then you can use a 205 thermostat housing no pipe adaptors needed for a 205 rad Thumbs up

so, MOT ran out on this in April last year, I think? lots of stuff happened before and just after then, new job, Girlfriend, a few different daily diesels.

ZX had sat in the corner abandoned for quite a while, though still a runner with a fresh battery, the bodywork being 2 different colours was beginning to get a bit boring, and whilst the new job is less per hour I'm doing 50% more hours a week, walk 50 yards to work, and get proper overtime, I still begrudge having to save over a months wages just to get a cheap blow over, yet IO know full well I am no sprayer Laugh my ass off

so, almost 2 years ago I helped my girlfriend sand back her 26 foot Kingfisher bilge keel junk rigger Yacht, hell of a job, spent weeks on end covered in blue and grey fine dust!

and then we Painted it, proper Hempel etch primers on the steel keels, normal yacht primer on the gelcoat followed by a lovely Gloss blue above the water line and black antifouling below, wet sanded between the last few coats of primer and each gloss coat, and I was particularly impressed with the finish from an over brushed roller job, can't find any pictures right now though Doh

so I decided to do the same to the ZX, sand it down with a makita DA borrowed off my girlfriend, flat back the fiddly bits by hand, then hit it with a roller and boat paints Big grin annoyingly I'd forgotten what kind of roller we had used and that we had followed with a brush, so the first coat of primer went on a bit thick and almost like crinkle paint Laugh my ass off easily rectified with a quick flat down before a few more coats though

thanks

I think my accent has mellowed significantly over the years having been bought ip bilingual in the north but moved south to Cardiff area where I've been now for 23 years!

unfortunately these days I rarely get the chance to speak welsh, however if I do my north walian accent comes back quickly

Hi mate!!!

Could really use your help regarding my 2.2 gti6 build!!! If you can send me a pm at my insta account would be awesome! @tiagosousaguedes! I'm looking at it and I guess the crank from the 2.1td houses larger con rods right? it has a lot of side to side play when mounting the stock rods on the 2.1 crank for testing, can you shed some light on the matter? I take it you have done the same exact build right?

PS.: My inbox is full and I can't figure out how to empty it, so I can't receive PM's

yes they do indeed have a wider conrod, the bearing itself is the same.
