Re: R8 PAS cooler delete & Pipe replacement

The later R8 I have seen 1995 onwards didn't have these pipes ( back of the fridge look ) and worked fine , I remade mind a couple of years ago and went to a hydraulic company for the rubber hose and connector .

Re: Rover Tahiti Blue

One way would be to take of the fuel filler cover and take to you local car paint supplier and get him to match your paint , they usually do aerosol ready mix and then you will know you have a good match .

Re: Expansion tank

Just a quick update,I cleaned the expansion tank with degreaser and small gravel come up a treat but if like me you have a later vehicle with a low coolant level sensor it might be better not to use gravel as it gets jammed between the float and casing thus causing the warning lamp to either stay o...

Re: Hydraulic lifters

RTV wont break down like anaerobic sealant, which only cures when parts are clamped together so any left in oil ways would be washed away with the correct sealant , so yes that is possible .

I used  ELRING Curil K2  but there are others .
