Talk about the horse shoe nail that lost the kingdom? :shock:

This is what I fitted from AK Automotive. It's a lovely oil tight revver.

That's the great thing about Mk1s. As long as the shell is sound, it's relative pocket money to repair them.

Robin

That was your top tip to make changing the oil filter easier. Take the cylinder head off first!
