I have a similar question for one of you.
How do you clean out a blocked, block drain pipe please?
Checked mine in changing the coolant and nothing comes out, obviously I need to clear out the block drain pipe, "somehow" ??

All good though GT ready to roll to Echuca!! :D

don't think theres anything inside the tank that would be hurt by gently pushing a small screwdriver in and wiggling it around to see if crap comes out....

Thanks Dave, appreciate the info and help here. Right now its ok, ancient Bellett Tap, packed will a million turns of teflon tape, but not ideal solution. It's right into the thread.[/quote]

Not a problem. I'm curious to what it looks like. Will take the taps back to the radiator bloke and let him know the situation. Will keep the forum posted.

THE EARLY TAP IN MY SPORT RAD. PACKED WITH TEFLON!

Dave, do you mean the pipe from the side of the block? I dave removed them and poked thin tie wire through.if you can get a small hole through, compressed air will do the rest. Just don't twist it off the side of the block. Better to stay blocked and be mobile.

Great to hear you're coming along. Hooray! :D
Cheers, Matt.

Well. You learn something new everyday. The convertible only had 1 horn. Non genuine. Not the big chrome genuine one.
Mounted on the right side. Onto the radiator support panel.
The white GT has 2 mount points on either side of the engine bay. The harness wasn't in the car when I received it. Good to know for when I get to the stage of checking the harness for dry joints, wires that have been excessively hot etc. Especially the ammeter cable. There are no flat clips like your car has to retain the wire.
Learnt something else today. The lower tie bar on the white GT is 45mm wide. The convertible is 50mm. Maybe for the 1600S OHC. No flat clips either.



Dave.
