A performance 21 November 2009

The pipe did indeed arrive yesterday. Not quite as good condition as the previous replacement but seems sound enough. I also asked for the seal for the water pump end and got a complete water pump gasket set! I could not get the old pipe off the engine without removing the oil cooler feed pipe. Even so it was a struggle to get it out. I had to rotate it to get the rear end clear of the block and head and then move it forward to get the rear end past the throttle linkage and oil pressure gauge feed. Then take the pipe back and down towards the exhaust in order to get the front end out past the exhaust manifold. Quite a performance but not as bad as I expected. Once I had the oil cooler feed pipe off and out I decided to give it a scrub down and a coat of paint.
