Can't remember' date=' 12 or 11 12point socket?

Think you caught that at the right time mate, I've seen cranks eat into blocks when the thrust washers fail!

Glad you've got the love back fella :)

They're American.. they're 1/2 inch imperial 12 point socket :)

wernt your return in the same place as mine.. or was it at the fornt of the sump..

as for the turbo feed .. id alwys use a restrictor, the quickest way to kill a turbo especialy a ebay one is to give it to much oil .. glad you have got it sorted though

ah you got it jolly good ....

oh really hmmm what you think just make it bigger then or weld it up and put the return in the block ????

Best place is into the block, but in the sump is ok. As standard, a 20v 1.8t has its oil return low in the sump.
