Anyone got any bright ideas for where I can get a replacement header tank for a K plate 1.7TD? or does anyone know what other cars it is common to?

My current one has failed on the return pipe from the engine (just after the metal insert) I am asuming this is a fairly common failure?

Fingers crossed it hasn't fecked the rest of the engine...

Thanks for that but I was thinking it would be better to get something new mainly because it looks like it is a flaw in the design i.e. it has cracked around the end of the metal insert, so rather than get something that might go again quick smart new would be better and possibly this issue will have been addressed?

Thanks for your quick reply though :Cool2:

I managed to find a very nearly new one on a scraper (too good an oppurtunity to miss as mine was cracked and past its best). The design was identical to the one it replaced on my 1992 cav even round those pesky weak hose conections.
