[ROVERNET - UK] P6 Technial Questions

Hi Aidrian,

I gave that a thought.  I have a complete spare engine and the banjo bolts 
on that engine are the same.  On the old set up on engine in the car the 
crush washers look like they had been used two or three times.  One of the 
washers on the 3/8 banjo bolt at the oil pump had a non crush washer that 
could have caused one of the leaks.  I have measured all the thickness and 
it should work if you do not over tighten the banjo bolts.

By the way did you get you the car started ?  Thanks for the feed back. 
Take Care.  jb

Are you sure the bolts weren't replaced at sometime in the past by 
that looked "about right"?

I've been caught this way before - someone had rebuilt a boiler feed water
pump and hadn't picked up the fact there were two slightly different 
of bolt in use and the longer ones bottomed in the shorter holes; it took 8
hours to trace the problem.
