    Probably, the old gasket looked and felt almost bituminous.
    The new one that came with the pump didn't have the little blue line of gasket sealant, i thought they all had that. I was going to put my own on, but it had gone off in the tube :(

    Today she went in for an MOT.
    PASS, no advisories and a comment that the emissions were "Spot-on" and that she drives like a dream.
    It may help to have a Brother In Law as a tester; but when pressed he said "There's nothing on it I would see fit to write up as even an "advisory" right now. The closest thing to an advisory is the rear box, as I can see that it will be leaking before long."
    So, as its 20+ years old and has done a massive 17,123 miles I am pretty pleased. :D

    Threatened it some more and it appears to have dried up. Been for a drive and no leaks!
    Next job, figure out why the exhaust is still so loud, no leaks on any joints, new box. Sounds like it's got a big blow somewhere when you're accelerating

    Decided I have a 'Friday Afternoon' truck. (Ask yer dad, one that was built on a Friday afternoon before everyone knocked off, so last ones thrown together before clocking off for the weekend..). Thought I would tackle the bad paint above the windscreen.

    Masked off everything and started 'rubbing'

    Bugger me..! I've seen more paint on a Datsun Sunny. The more I sanded, the more came off..In Pieces..!!! The base coat was just coming away from the primer. So had to go gentle and try and keep something on. Managed to finish and spray it and not looking too bad, just need to polish it off when the clear coat hardens.

    @Daraboy1973 Change your location to something a bit more vague, never know who about (there is a stolen Landy section too) ;)

    Just start your own thread in general section may be popular?

    @Daraboy1973. Welcome:) you may want to make. Your location a bit more generic not your postcode.

    Checked landy was all tucked up for the evening and noticed a coolant wee at the back of the engine
    If it's not one thing, it's another!! Heater hoses are dry so that only leaves the valley gasket :'( i can't cope with doing that one again!!!!!

    Lacquer on my bonnet needs redoing but the rest isn't bad. Colour seems to make a difference.
