    Help...... Just replaced my water pump, timing belt, and aux belt. Put it all back together, turned the engine over and it seemed to stop, but wasn't sure if I slipped my finger off the push start. So thought better be safe and check it all lines up before trying again. In the process of...

    Just been attending to a small hole in the back exhaust box. To my horror, I found a 50mm x 20mm rectangular section, between the radius arm mounts which crumbled when touched. As a temporary fix, I have replaced it with a length of Unistrut HS21 which is 45mm x 21mm channel, commonly used in...
