    Always a good idea. About every 5 minutes is usual.

    Is it sealed? Could it take a little sulphuric acid?

    Finally got a bit of engine bay cleaning done - a lot of dusty stuff brushed free and the aircon pipes fairly easily turning from black to silver.

    Also thanks to @kermit_rr 's help and advice I finally managed to get the rather worn drivebelt off. Just hope I don't mangle the new one getting it on later.

    Still waiting on refurbed heads, still got manifold to clean.

    Took the oil filler cap off and that make no difference to the exhaust leak.
    Had a good look round the manifold from above and underneath, even with a mirror, can't see any sign of trouble anywhere!! Need to tow my bike to trackday again on Friday :(

    It's it easy enough to engage the starter without the key, without starting the engine? If i can whizz it round a few times with my head under the bonnet, might help me to identify the exhaust leak

    Pull the fuel pump relay and bridge the starter relay (couple of bits of wire with spades and a switch is the posh way).
    But with the noise I dont think it will help;).

    Will exhaust blow without fuel to combust?

    Today I learned how to get the most out of your parking ticket.
    You open the cap to top up the brake fluid then gasp as the pedal drops to the floor :oops: found old bottle in a bush some chopped EAS line (is perfect) and cracked the callipers in parking lot. The looks people give you!! :confused::( Brakes are fine after 1/2 litre! run through but clutch is now heavier as it should be possibly may need new neck

    Even with a lift pump now she is starting to get a bit hotstarty? Something makes me feel it’s the CPS sensor. I’ve lived through hotstarts, no lift pump, QS and chain stretch yet this seems slightly different.
    Choices currently are Lucas, Lemark or Kerr Nelson, any views on these?

    Not totally screwed should be able plug that

    In fairness the P38 BP flexis seem pretty good. Think the ones I took off are same not original probably 3rd set new now at 26 years. Not tight like when I lifted it so new shocks/tyres on horizon

    I've replaced half the sensors on the Alfa with Lemark. They've been fine.

    It is more spite. I don't want to pay for their laziness. 2nd time I've had FOD imbedded in my tyres in as many months. First time I turned a blind eye because I was already getting new tyres. The site rep (mod housing upgrades) is coming into work tomorrow just to see how he can satisfy me.

    No doubt they'll refuse to pay for repairs, but if they just sweep up after themselves that'd be nice.
