got a courtenay one going one. was well impressed witht he service ordered it monday was on my door tuesday evening. and got clutch from autovaux and other bits. the clutch was fecked there was about 1 or 2 thou left before the rivets in the clutch. would of prob lasted another 100miles and it would not do anything else but slip.

plans are clutch and flywheel. change the txb so i get my 4 x 4 working. fix aircon pipes, prob front drive shafts as the thread on the cv is knackered, track rod ends, poly bushes on antiroll bars, paint struts. new scorpian exhaust.

then onto the rear. taking the rear off, painting all that, diff is being removed to do the seals as its leaking alot. new rear brakes.

then after all that see if it works. then next step is new turbo as i was aa performance one.

Fair play mate, doing things thoroughly:up:

How much was your fly wheel and clutch? For reference.

Jesus... that flywheel is well screwed! :eh

Looks like you doing it just in time, Only thing that worries me about getting a turbo is the running/maintenance/4x4 and of course it breaking down or falling apart on the rear end... pfft... err... still want one though! :D
