    yesterday i had a little time, so i retorqued the head as she look a little wet at the front, and then re set the tappets. sounds a little quieter but still a tappy c1j.

    managed to get to the local scrappy to find another campus there, this one equipped with a fag lighter, so that was taken out for mine so i can run the wideband. I also managed to swipe a parcel shelf and fixings as mine had snapped off the lugs that hold it up.

    Luckily it had the wiring for the fag lighter tucked away, so fitted it all up nicely. down side is it doesnt seem to be getting power and the fuse looks fine. Will need to investigate a little more when the rain stops. Anyone know if the fag lighter is only powered when thecars running or anything?

    so now the tuning can start :ag:

    also another little thing swapped, the header tank cap.
    The one i had on there was a blue type that came with the tank. There was witness marks of it releasing so i ran the car a few times up to temp whilst watching it and found the water level to rise to the cap then spit out!!! at first i feared the worst! but then noticed that the cap was plain and unbranded, fitted a spare brown oem cap and at the last test the water stayed low. I think the cap was just not sealing or releasing pressure early. Something to watch out for on replacement header tanks (y)

    @Brigsy@Brigsy mentioned looking there I think. Rear turbo oil seal? Might have to lay her up for the winter now until I have some pennies for a rebuild

    Yep looks like the rear seal is letting by a bit of oil. The other tell tale is oil on the gearbox dripping out of the exhaust housing.
