200 Turbo ..
« on: September 10, 2019, 11:22:52 pm »
Is the turbo worth pulling off before CHiP is sent to the crusher or stripper ?

Something in the drive train, unsure what, got every conceivable spare part for three cars, but time is precious of late and as much as I wanna fix it up, I definitely have not got time for a major or even a minor rebuild.

Would have got rid of it years ago, but it just looks so great after a rain storm. Still got the space even tho, we are back to 4 cars ....  ::)

Something in the drivetrain? This could be something as simple as a wheel bearing. Does it drive? What are the symptoms?

Wheel bearing highly likely, tho it could be in the auto, brakes would need cleaning up,  yada yada

Headliner off, but have two spares, one with slide roof, one without, boots, bonnets, mags yada yada.

Wouldn't mine a straight driving one with no hang ups that I could just flash up, but yeah my days of getting under and working (even tho I have loved doing that all me life) it are past.  :-\
