  • The problem with one size fits all solutions is that you find that it’s always the one size that fits no bastard properly

  • At work and at home I use Hilti and Bosch professional battery rattle guns the 2 Hiltis 3/4” and 1/2” drive are for heavy work and the Bosch 1/2” and 3/8” drive ar for medium and light work respectively, I find the quality of these makes for ease of use, more control and less hard on the hands than the el’cheapo stuff.
    Having said that
    I keep an Aldi cheapie in the Ute for emergencies, it’s not bad for the money and I won’t be heartbroken if some scumbag junkie vermin pinches it from the back of the Ute.

  • A MPI F fitted with a distributor will have no use for a cam sensor so it’s not surprising that you’re having trouble finding one.
    Unlike the VVC engines the cams timing are fixed so the crankshaft sensor is all that it needs, it could use the distributor as a sensor if need to.

    Later cars without a distributor will have a cam sensor

  • Yeah do all the usual suspects, check the plugs, in particular check the gaps, sometimes when something is reluctant to start when cold/wet closing the plug gaps by a bee’s dick can get ‘em going…….. usually means the ignition system is not up to par and needs a thorough going over.
    Plug leads could be breaking down with too much resistance and crossfiring.
    As it seems to be temp related, check the temp senders, there are two, one for the gauge and the other talks to the ECU. If it’s telling porkies to the ECU, then of course it’ll be running like a hairy goat. Don’t worry about the gauge sender it won’t be effecting the running.

    Don’t ever rightoff the possibility of the fuel pump shitting itself on an intermittent basis, had two do this to me…..bloody hard to diagnose as the bastard of a thing would come good whenever you had tools handy.
    You might have a shitty fuel pump relay, or even crap electrical connections on the fuel circuit, retracting and expending with temperature variations.

    O2 sensors can play havoc with ECUs when they’re telling lies like a candidate on election day

    Once you done with that lot, get back to us.

    The process of silvering the plastic reflectors is called metalising and in my experience having them redone is not expensive.
    The bloke I get to do it here in Oz manufactures coffin hardware for the funeral trade, handles, plaques etc
