Re: 250 saloon engine overheating

Re: WANTED: V8-250 BW35 BELL HOUSING

Spoke with Barry, he is certain all are gone.

If he has stock left he will give me a buzz, albeit I am not hopeful as it's not the sort of item that gets tucked at the back of a shelf and you forget !!

Very nice chap and very helpful.

Thanks for the heads-up, Colin, once again.

Regards.

Richard.

Re: WANTED: V8-250 BW35 BELL HOUSING

Folks,

Thanks for your responses.

Marcel - I am fitting a ZF4 HP22 from a Jaguar.

Colin - I presume that is adaptor plate blanks rather than bell housing ?? !!

Stu - Many thanks, keep me posted: I intend to carry out the conversion next Winter.

Regards.

Re: How to clean up black plastic trim?

I recall many decades ago, that Citroen vehicles were very prone to discolouring - not just the plastic but panels as well, especially red cars.

Re: LA11 engine problems

That's very interesting Marcel and thanks for your reply. Ironically I had a very slight visible weep from the head gasket, on my 180K mileage (2005) X-Trail prior to Xmas.
