Discussion in 'Projects' started by evocarlos, October 12, 2017.

  1. After a recent purchase of a facelift signum elite heres some work to it :)

    with the car home time for a wash

    preface hiding in the background

    all the toys :)

    lots of holograms on the paint

    polished up

    sniff test came back ok no exhaust gases in the water

    new thermostat installed 82c astra g one ecu reports the right temp

    gearbox plug was shafted had to use a chisel but some corsa c plugs i had fit perfect


    the af23 even had a dipstick


    gunk foam and a jet wash then lots of polymerize got it looking spot less

  4. :) was Peters old one..

    Got to work on the gasket yesterday lifted the head off and #4 looked to be the damaged area

    Ive been running plenty of redx thru it to clean the cylinders up that with vpower you can see the pistons were starting to clean up

    The oil filter had collapsed and dislocated from the cap so it's not been doing much for a while
    The swirl flap bar was ticking ive changed the bar but still got the ticking must be the flaps are warn out
    new fuel filter and fresh oil and filter dove it home 100 miles with out issue and fitting a real 82c thermostat from an astra g 2.2 makes the water temp real world on the vec c and not 105c rubbish with the factory stat

    Found the dust cover on the passenger caliper off so poped to piston out to check for pitted surface there was a little mark nothing serious but im going to have to get a new seal for it at some point :)

    Can also report there has been no water loss since the gasket has been done :)
