Reason for sale is i can no longer afford to run two cars . Price £6000 firm. Location plymouth, devon. Steve, 07735497ooo Happy to take anyone on a test drive, you can drive it yourself with proof of fully comp insurance and proof of all mods included and 6k deposit. Not entertaining my insurance covers it on 3rd party rubbish.
  2. I have one to sell if anyones looking? Ex cond
  3. Bonded windscreen. Higher transmission tunnel, as some were syncros clear front bumper indicators
  4. Id have to check my reciepts from previous owners, guessing 3-4 yrs ago. Service next month so thats a possible time. The charger is only half way through its service interval though so not really looking at removing this year.
  5. Thanks, chargers due next year so think ill change it then .
  6. How often should the small charger belt be changed ? And how hard to do? Been suggested change yearly or when charger service due which is a big difference Whats everyone doing?
  7. Another vote for quantum synta silver 10/40. My engine was rebuilt 30k ago by previous owner and this was the oil he recommended on purchase. Never had any issues.
  8. For anybody in a similar situation. My car was converted by dan at devondubshack. Dan has a usa contact for sourcing the necessary lhd parts and having just done my conversion will be able to do the next one quicker.
  9. Probably my last update to this thread, thankfully. The abs system has been removed!!!! .I went through all the checks followed all the advice and information given by members and through old threads and could not get it fixed. So the parts were sourced. And ive just got the car back today with a fresh mot and clean bill of health. Normal driving resumed. Im so glad that when it breaks now its just an ordinary system to fix and like someone said if you fix the abs and it goes again while driving or just parked its still going to be a nightmare to fix. My advice to anyone would be if you have the knowledge and skills have a go fixing the abs yourself if not dont waste time and money like i did paying someone to try and solve it. Its an old system with spares availabilty being mostly just 2nd hand parts. I sourced steveo30's parts list and my mech did the job in less than 3days ( i dont know how many hours, but it was done with other jobs) .Picked car up today and actually enjoyed the drive for the first time in 10mnths. Yes its now a non abs g60 but safety has to come first. Ive left everything in the car ecu/loom sensors etc so if the next owner ever wanted to fit the broken abs for originality he could but thats just crazy lol. I do have a spare ecu and two pumps one with working motor if anyone wants to collect spares. I need to recoup some of what ive spent lol. Quite happy to strip individual parts like preassure switches if needed. Anyway. Abs removed. Normal service resumed. Thanks to all that have offered input.
  10. Id be guessing not as the pump is electronically controlled from the ecu. The pump wouldnt prime. My symptom is the other way round as in hard pedal. Ive had everything checked and using a lot of info and advice from here have decided to remove mine and revert to normal servo assisted system. Just a pain collecting parts. I do have a spare good ecu id do for £45 posted if any use to you.
  11. No... Good shout ill do it now, thanks.
  12. I do keep an eye out for one. Hopefully next as you say. To get one in any size but correct colour would be perfect!
  13. Thats the one! Im sure i saw a picture once and not just making it up lol. Do they ever rerelease models ? Or is it a case of keeping an eye on ebay. Id love the red one in 1:12scale but prefer to have your actual colour if poss in any scale lol
  14. Am i right in thinking they once did a edition one model with blue recaros and dbp?Or did i dream it lol. This is the one i have to find/ wait for
  15. Still ongoing. Rich is sourcing parts for removal and i have a specialist been recomended to me so will be ringing them. I think i will take whatever route can be done first now. Has been suggested replace rear wheel speed sensors but i cant see how this would stop the pump supplying any fluid to the rear lines. If Anyone has any parts on steveo30's list i will take them. Dont even mind doubling up on parts
