As the title suggests I am looking for a donor car. I don't need it right now but I can use it from now on. Anyone who comes across one please keep me in mind

Well took the inlet off but left the bit on so that I could pressure test the system.
Water was coming out the hose that comes from the head, and out the water pump weep hole.

No water in the bores.. wooooohoooo

So it occurred to me to simplify all the hoses.... and then I thought I would move the battery to the tray.... and then I thought why not just go the whole hog and simplify the wiring.... and fix some rust in the rear wheel arches.

Here we go headlong into a long project - good thing I have a spare Nissan (2001 Pulsar) to use as my daily !

I am on the brink of getting rego for Kermit and I need to find a club that just wants to take my money and not make me attend meetings.

Anyone know of any near Melbourne?
I am going for a roadworthy this week

Thanks Andrew, it frightened the absolute things off me when it blew.
I plan to remove the plenum and redo all the water hoses while I am at it. But the thermostat will definitely get boiled, or replaced after testing a new one, I have been losing fluid for a while and the pressure test I did last weekend failed somewhere in the front water hoses.

Hopefully the head is ok

Heater Hose Disaster!

Driving home from work yesterday and noticed the TEMP gauge needle went OVER the top indicator. As I was deciding how to pull over from the middle of traffic I quickly flicked over the heater to let fluid in and give some relief.
That's when the hose burst and flooded the cabin with hot steam and over me too.
How do you decide whether to use the brakes or save your own skin? (literally!).

Managed to do both with only a very small scolding - guess who got a lift home in a tray tow truck?

Anyway.... as you can see in the pic this was a consequence not a cause.

I did a compression test this afternoon 1:160, 2:125, 3:115, 4:140 - leaning towards head gasket but there's no contamination in the oil and the plugs looked ok.

Possibly a failed thermostat caused it.

Any ideas?
