Hey Stevie - really glad it went to someone on here!

Did you view the car before bidding?

And when do you get your hands on it?

I'm just going on your recomnendation!! worshippy.gif


I'm taking a gamble on her, but my mate is a mechanic , ex mot tester, serial car restorer and bona fide 100% Italian, so I have him to fall back on.

My plan is:

I'm going to try to sort the rusted strut domes , by grinding into, see how deep the rust goes , and hopefully weld it with not too much bother.

Then I'm going to change the timing belt, water pump.

Full Service with spark plugs , flushing and swapping out all fluids

Then new strut covers , struts , dampers, spacers and eibach springs.

Hopefully that will be about it!? coolio.gif

Yes, hes also very recently bought a 159 2.4 , 2008, bought it with 60k on the clock but timing belt snapped, engine bust, for 700.

He opened her up and the belt hadn't snapped but the tensioner slackened off , so timing had jumped a few , enough for valve impact, but the rockers are designed to fracture, so hes replaced a few rockers, new belt, and shes back on the road , 3k valuation!!

Sounds like a plan!

And if you want a set of Eibach springs I have some - nearly new, and in their original box... let me know if you want more info!

I bought these springs along with my set of black Speedline wheels and a few other odds and ends.

The seller told me they had been fitted but not used for long as he sold the car (removing the Eibachs and Speedlines beforehand). The springs are clean, but do have some surface scratches around the outer edges - I've tried to show this in the pics below.

Price new = just under 200. Yours for 60!

Ok, I'll have em, subject to only that the car doesn't shock me with anything when it arrives on Friday, so I will confirm for defo on Saturday. Where do you live if I want to come and get them? Or do you have any reason to pass by ashby de la zouch or coalville?

How do I remove the abs sensor, is that supposed to be an Allen nut? Need to get a clear approach to bottom pinch nut.

Hi Stevie,

I'm currently battling the same issue on my 145 boxer. It was originally an allen bolt but like all rusty allen bolts, its already rounded at the mere thought of you wanting to undo it. I tried welding another bolt to the top of it but it just sheared further down. In my case, the bolt was hardened so I've ordered a cobalt drill bit to try and get it to shift, otherwise I'll have to hold the new sensor in with a cable tie or something. On my car. the hole for the thread goes all the way through the knuckle with enough room at the end (I think) to put a nut if you did have to drill through the bolt and couldn't tap a new thread for whatever reason but I don't know if the knuckles on the boxer and twin sparks are different. My ABS sensor was badly cracked and stuck in place so I had to destroy it to get it out so you may not want to disturb it if you can help it.
