Just popped for Discs + Pads.

Also found cheapz N.O.S. Delphi LP676 pads 馃檪

That coating works well till things get hot. The centre should stay pretty much ok given the bigger heat sink surface the hub affords, but I bet the disc surface and outer edges look like any other disk in a week or 2.

I have cobbled up a 'reversed' stroke cycle tyre pump + fishtank air 'clack valve'.... Hence, I'm able to create a partial vacuum in a stiff pop bottle and, with a rubber pipe connected, I will draw down my brake fluid/refresh :)
Costs? 拢3 (... I need to drink the pop first)

All MOTd now.....

Emissions virtually NIL, so my old CAT was 'Goosed!!'

Got new Discs + Pads fitted (I was going to do them, but.... What the heck).

Also fixed my fuel tank vent rubber pipe... Leaking a drip or two :eek:

3hours cost 拢100.... Plus free Retest.

Just bought a Cam Belt QTB493. 拢11.99 Inc p&p.

Great idea, having a bolt on/ring fitting Bottom Pulley.... Makes a belt swap a 20min job ;)

Getting a 4PK825 grooved belt, to swap at the same time!

I bought a Mk1 Picasso 'high 3rd brake light' for 拢9.99 and also sourced 5 LED W5W bulbs. They are polarity sensitive, so I fitted them all the same orientation 馃憤.

This will fit nicely as an alternative to the 'stock' square glow in the Swift!!

My oil filter sandwich plate arrived... 拢11 UK Pounds, delivered ex Hong Kong.

I considered various oil feed points, for my wet oil gauge, but this really is the simplest option. Hopefully 'no leaks' 馃

The 'oil filter sandwich plate' is now ready - for my oil change ONLY.
You can see my iron 1/8bspt plug (+ PTFE tape) is set.... It will screw out/replaced by brass fitting when my wet Oil Pressure Gauge is ready to be fitted. The two other ports are sealed shut forever.... Alloy NPT plugs (supplied in kit) PTFE tape & a dab of thread lock dripped up the threaded end/pressure side (y)
