    Thanks for your advice. It gives every symptom of what you have described. As for the VIN it is on the A pillar and when we rolled it off the truck it is too close to the wall to open the door to read. I couldn't even get a mirror in to try and read it that way. I do however have a number that appears in a "gap" in the dash down near the bottom of the windscreen.

    That number is VF 36 DXFVJ 2113 1389.

    I will be ringing the dealer in a moment or two to see if he will give me the details so I can fiddle along from there. I will also price a starter from him. Problem is he is 220km away so it is not always easy.

    Will email you after I have spoken with them.

    At least I now have an excuse to use the 203 every day.

    Peter J (Flash) Flanagan

    PS do you know the Torpies?

    Being 390mm TRX rims, their value is aligned to the value of scrap aluminum. However, a glimmer of hope for you: The centre caps, if in good condition, might get $5-10 each.

    Roland liked post by Demannu On thread : 406 hdi running very poorly
    Reason it was smoky is that these engines use an airflow meter that heavily influences the amount of fuel that is injected. If you have a leak post-turbo (which is also post-AFM), the ECU sees the...

    You'd be better off getting the springs reset to the height you're after or buying aftermarket lowering springs.

    Well to answer your first question, yes you can put a F4R in an R10. You need an R16 bell housing and an adaptor plate. You'll also need R16 internals in the gearbox if you expect it to survive. ...
