It runs!!!! But.....

Postby shoveitnz » 21 May 2007, 17:46

fired up the chevette sunday afternoon. Started on the 2nd go with a bit of choke. Sounds great and was not as loud as i was fearing.
let it warm up and topped up the water etc, checking for leaks.
then once oil thermostat opended up I discovered a leak out through a split where return hose comes out on oil cooler.! *beep* it!!!
So I'm sitting there on a hot day in the sun in a car thats all ready to go and I have to now remove cooler.
I've got cooler out now and hopefully a freiend is going to get his boss to tig up the crack.
NZ desperately needs more immigration and fresh blood. Our eyes are getting far too close together!

All ready to go and all worked up to take it for a spin.... and some small twit problem crops up at the last second :x

Before you say anything..... no i cant spell or type!

The post above is my own personal opinion, it is not meant to upset or cause offence, if it does bugger off.

It's a nuisance, but better now than later on the motorway when you may not notice before it's too late.

True enough...
