I'm taking pictures of the parts and numbers as we go, just not posting them up yet until I know they fit!
Thanks for the help though.
At the moment we need, but do not have a head gasket, inlet manifold gasket, exhaust manifold gasket or head bolts. Do you know if these are common with the Daewoo?
Ahh think I remember you saying in a earlier post. I'll do some digging!
A good engineering/motor factors should be able to match the Headbolts and even the inlet and exhaust gaskets up.My local shop is usually great for this where as most factors don't have a clue.
I found this..
Looks like a N/A F6A though and I'm not 100% sure with the headgasket due to it been turbo. TADO is the best man as he's got the parts book.
I think you'll have to wait until the weekend!
edit - I hope there is some sort of Carol-chan mascot as well.
No pressure then? hehe
Glad you enjoyed the story. It is such a shame that cars get abandoned, there's usually a home somewhere for all of them. You just need to find that someone to take them in.
I took the starter motor over to my Dad yesterday and he bench tested it for us, needs a little grease but other wise working perfectly (we couldn't test it under load).
However our search for a head gasket in time for KKITP has proven fruitless - our initial plan failed and leads to people who have a gasket didn't get us anywhere... so it seems Carol might not make KKITP after all the work we've done.
I'm really gutted.
