    Gearbox fill plug

    I just fill up my big jug with a hose connected to the fill plug and let it drain in on its own, if the gearbox had not been out for the clutch and rear main deal I'l wouldn't have bothered faffing with it

    Gearbox fill plug

    That's what I did in the end... I have plenty of tapered plugs lying around the shop but none of them fit quite right sadly

    Gearbox fill plug

    Hey everyone, Just doing a clutch on my k11 and the filler plug had been royally chewed up prior to me getting in there... Managed to eventually get it out after much smacking. I need a replacement but I can't find one for sale anywhere... Anybody know a good supplier? It's the 1. 0 coilpack...

    Sump leaking again

    The sump is only 6-8nm so it's very easy to over tighten... wouldn't use more than a 4mm bead of sealant at the very most - what plmval said is true of using a cork gasket or similar that can be pierced when crushed too much by uneven metal but when using sealant it should make a good seal...

    Sump leaking again

    Less is more when it comes to sealant.. I find most of the time leaks are caused when people use way too much... You can sometimes get away with reuse MLS gaskets but anything else is usually not reusable..

    Oil extractors has anyone used one on a K11, any good?

    I've always found it works quite nicely to use a t-handle and bit and hammer on it reasonably aggressively while turning and it comes loose... I don't like risking slipping with the torque of a breaker bar and stripping out of the plug... Glad you got it off

    Long wait.

    You could fit an a/c unit but it would be expensive with hard to find smaller parts and a lot of effort. I had to go and get a long wait once when I was an apprentice... I never found it oddly enough...

    Air conditioning condenser

    Many places will vacuum test the system for free, if it doesn’t hold a vacuum and the refrigerant has escaped you can diy the condenser quite easily and just pay to have it charged with refrigerant. That said be sure not to release that gas into the atmosphere it’s not good Sent from my iPad...

    Full Leather

    Hey all, The interior in the k11 has seen better days and now there is a piece of metal of the back poking out and cuts me everytime I go to put on my seat belt. As some of you may know, when something breaks and the wife complains about too you have poetic license to go all out for extra...

    Diagnostic tests are extremely accurate if you get someone who knows what they are doing, as others have said live data is a super valuable tool.
