    Disturbingly the starter had already been replaced, odd at 90K, anyway finally found a replacement freewheel pinion for it £10 is a lot less than the cost of even a used starter, HC Cargo brand which is owned by Bosch - unfortunately Autodoc so might be 3 weeks to get it or it might be here by Tues..

    Re built the starter which is now working proprly. Ran it up and to my annoyance, unless I am mistaken it looks like at least one injector has not been re-built properly as it appears to be leaking from the body. :mad:

    Yep, also that it was 5pm Friday on a bank holiday weekend. Tees me off that Mr amateur here got all 246 bolts back in the right place but the pros could not torque one injector out of 4. Apparently - still open to it being my fault, but...

    PBA swear they would have tested after cleaning.. hmmm... anyway re-torqued all of the injectors and parts of the injectors :whistle: and now all dry.
    Sorted out the insurance and tax (shout out to the lovely "a-real-person-picks-up-the-phone" A-Plan Thatcham for swapping the last week of my SAAB insurance for the Warrior at no cost:thumbup:)

    Took it for a run and it runs great, no leaks or issues.... except when putting my foot down at about 2500rpm there is a boost of power immediately followed by the amber EML :doh: - Then I discover that the OBDII look-a-like port, isn't OBDII it's MUTII as mnrf pre 04 so I can't get any codes.

    Due to when it comes on I suspect the turbo actuator or it's controls - sure enough the little pressure line that goes to the (boost?) sensor has popped off, fix, test again, great to 3500.. then EML light. Re-check the pipe and it has popped off again. I have cleaned the pipe and put a couple of zip ties on it, anyone know what glue is used to keep the things on? Don't want to use superglue as it would never come off.

    Spot the culprit!

    They are difficult to get off the first time, I left most of them attached but had to pull this one.
