I found out this is not possible.

I can get a new windscreen manufactured by a place in Midrand for R5800 + VAT

They don't have stock, but are searching for me.

Ok. Leon from Classic Windscreens can supply me one for R4500.

Looks like I will have to break the piggy bank again.

I want to sell my motor, box & ECU.

Anyone interested?

So I decided to rebuild the engine.

What fun i had trying to source parts in ZA!

valve stem seals, head gasket & rings in PE
big end bearings in CT
machining in PE
labour in my garage

now it uses 0 oil out the exhaust but unfortunately still has an oil leak near the sump or timing cover.

I haven't used the 1st tank of fuel yet, but so far it looks like the fuel consumption might be better.


I am still interested in figuring out the Hydratrak LSD function.

I still don't think it is working.

Any ideas?
