    C20XE Water Pump Replacement

    Hi, I need to get the water pump replaced on by C20XE, so I'm looking for some advice. I'm not having any luck getting a garage to do it for me, as I wasn't feeling that confident and needed a quick turn around, but it looks like its going to be a DIY job after all. Its an early redtop and I have the pulley and belt kit, so i just need to source a pump, so, my questions are 1. any advice on pumps as I read there are plastic and metal impeller types, also some claiming to have heavy duty bearings; also advice on a good retailer 2. Does the seal require any sealant, hylomar or similar etc 3. I want to replace the front main seal (its leaking a little) - so any tips for that would be help full given its location 4. Any tips on setting the belt tension given I don't have the recommended tool, that said, the Haynes manual offers a couple of alternative methods for measurement 5. and lastly, I like the look of the exposed cams belt and pulley (covers removed), although not sure how practical it is for road use; debris getting caught up etc, but wondered if someone could tell me what modifications are required to do it As always, any help and advice is warmly welcome

    VDO Oil Gauge Random Pressure Reading

    Hi, I recently had the oil/filter changed in my redtop along with a new sump gasket. Everything seemed to run fine then I noticed the VDO oil pressure gauge reading odd at start up. On start up the gauge seems to get to 1.5 bar then stop for a while, hardly a flicker, then seems to read as it normally. This has happened a couple of times now and only from cold. Other than that it seems to go up and down dependant on revs and engine temp as normal The only other think I notice is that it will bounce (swing from side to side) when you hit bump in the road Is this a sender unit on its way out or sticky gauge? - any ideas?

    Redtop Sump Leaking

    Hi, Some advice please? It seems like my sump is leaking from the gasket on my Red-top engine. It has a cast shallow sump and looks like a cork gasket fitted (although I cant be certain without a closer look - cant be certain what baffle is has fitted either) I would appreciate some advice on the best way to go when I come to fix it 1. Cork gasket(s) - with/without baffle plate! 2. Rubber gasket slotted to accept the baffle plate 3. Gasket and baffle plate combined Recommendations on goods suppliers also welcome Sealant/no sealant? Thanks

    How to Reduce Induction Noise

    Hi, I've been looking for ideas and solutions to try and quite the induction noise on my redtop. I see there has been lots of discussion and a few have pointed to some very nice carbon air boxes. While theses look great, they aren't cheap, although I live close to Jenvey who have offered their own air box solution for about £300. Has anyone got any pictures of other solutions they have used and know that work? or Does anyone have an spare/old or knackered ITG filter (JC50)? - I was going to ask a fabricator friend to form one around the plastic frame work Thanks in advance
