Re: S3 Brake Pad Source?

Just for future reference, here is a link to the Centric pads on RockAuto for the front - they look correct for 1985 S3 cailipers :)

Re: S3 Brake Pad Source?

Can't say I've used the seriously cheap ones. Just used them as an example. Plenty of choice for all budgets Centric ..... https://www.rockauto.com/en/cart/ Thanks Dave, but the cart must auto empty as there's nothing to see on that link ;) TBH, I think if Mister Auto can supply in the UK, he'd pre...

Re: S3 Brake Pad Source?

Thanks guys, I'll check out those links and pass them on 0-0

To be fair, my friend ordered what should have been the correct items from Rock Auto and the pads didn't fit! I have to admit I've had this problem before with a few parts from Rock Auto for my S2. That's why he's prefer a UK source.

Re: Black Elford Turbo

I can also vouch for Aston at Essex Rotary, who has done a lot of work on my RX-8 over the years, including rebuilding and bridgeporting my engine in 2017 :D

Re: KIMI 2 - 1983 Series 2

...when the oil cooler was refurbed, did you have the threaded bosses on the cooler replaced ?...... I reused the existing threaded bosses, not expecting them to be an issue. As it turns out, all seems OK now that I've nipped the top connector up. I was very wary of over-tightening, so probably und...

Like Ian said, I used Loctite 577 thread sealer on the rally car fuel and oil lines.
Thanks for that info. Luckily, no oil is leaking now, but I'll certainly be sure to use some of that stuff if I have to seal any oil or fuel lines in future!

Re: KIMI 2 - 1983 Series 2

:D Another MOT passed today with no advisories yay I wasn't expecting any issues, but I haven't had much time this year to do as much work under the car as I would have liked, so just hoping all was OK underneath. The MOT tester commented favourably on the overall condition of the car (for its age) ...
