  1. Step 2
    Buy 4 tins of this
    Shove down the oil filler
    Or better still remove valve covers and smear liberally
    Rag it up the road for about 10 -15 miles that will get the oil nicely warm
    To do it's stuff
  2. If you get fed up spooning it out the tin
    Just go for the coarse end first :thumbsup:
  3. If you mixed the paste with paraffin or diesel
    It will be easier to get down the oil filler
    Glug glug glug :)

  9. dont worry i brought 3 bottles back with me this time!!
    Oh and i checked with Kerry and it's ok, i distracted her by knocking down our one remaining brick gatepost to allow more room for parking and that's annoyed her more!!

    Engine or g/box mount is my guess
  18. Yep, subaru engine mount. if i had taken the one off the forester then i t wouldn't have had any steering or front wishbones and getting rid would have been harder. so for 30 quid off ebay it was easier to do. i really shoudl add up the cost of the conversion as i go. just hide it from the Mrs!!

  19. NEVER add up the costs of working on a Bay! One day you will leave it lying around and the wrong person will read it.
