If you clean out all the gunge and sand off the corrosion it should work ok.

Re: R8 PAS cooler delete & Pipe replacement

Thank you , I bent the pipes and they hydraulic company did the rubber and end fitting . :D Still don't understand why we need them and the later cars didn't, is there a difference in the pump and rack anyone ? What metal did you use for the new pipes? I have got a return pipe from a 25 and the met...

Re: R8 PAS cooler delete & Pipe replacement

The later R8 I have seen 1995 onwards didn't have these pipes ( back of the fridge look ) and worked fine , I remade mind a couple of years ago and went to a hydraulic company for the rubber hose and connector . https://ibb.co/kxVz9dM https://ibb.co/LkD4jXf It looks like they did a good job with th...

Re: R8 PAS cooler delete & Pipe replacement

Unless you are intending doing a lot of lock to lock manoeuvring in very hot weather you are unlikely to need the cooler! If Its not needed it would make my job a lot easier. The main reason i want to use modified L series pipes is because the original routing is a pita to work on. Also using this ...

Re: R8 PAS cooler delete & Pipe replacement

You are in luck (I think) as myself working with Gti John have started the process of getting them manufactured. John will hopefully fill in the gap shortly. What parts are being manufactured? On mine the cooler pipes are ok, it more a case of everything rubber leaks and the pipe unions weep :sad

R8 PAS cooler delete & Pipe replacement

My 220 is suffering persistant leaks from the PAS return pipe. I fix a leak at one end, and it starts leaking from the other. As a lot of the T-series PAS hoses & pipes are NLA, Im looking at making up my own replacements. From checking the R3 L series PAS pipe diagrams i think they can be modified ...

Re: Original Dealer Service Schedule for 220 GSi

If your car came with a booklet titled "Owner infomation & Service record" pages 28-29 cover the maintenance schedule. I own a 220 GSI that was off the road from 2008 till 2015. It was given a through service at 85,000 and now has done 117,000. From my experience; The dizzy cap and rotor arm last ab...

Why does the J...TOK regarding ring a bell? Feel sure I've seen a few in the run. We're they all registered in the same place or am I imagining things.
There was a identical car for sale local to me last year, so its either the same car or a similar reg.

Re: Putting £ in

I've just done a spending of love with my 214 cabby: purchased for 2,500€ (£2,100), plus as much in pieces & mechanic's labour... Mind that prices on the continent are far much higher than in the mainland! But no regret, I love it! :drive1 Interesting that just after 31 January, you call the UK "th...
