I would go for something like a 60/40 FK spring set with Koni shocks. Anything lower I would get coilovers as the front steering arms don't sit right.

Single contact plugs can be gapped and should be 0.8mm. The tripple contact ones can't be done that easily, but are easy to see by eye if they are near enough.

You can just buy a new hall sender from a bosch parts dealer. Not too difficult to change either, just a bit fiddly.

If the timing was fine before, then theres no reason it would suddenly be a problem. You need to set the ignition timing in 'service mode' that involves warming the car up, un plugging the blue temp sender. You should hear the revs rise to about 1200 odd rpm. If it doesn't do this, it's not going in...

I don't trust non genuine temp sensors, I've had bad ones in the past. For the sake of a few pounds saved, it's more hassle I think. You can check the resistance of it to see if it's ok. It should be around 200-250 ohms when the engine is hot. Rich running you would smell and tell by the unusual fue...

Did you use a genuine blue temp sender ? Does it run rich at the moment ?

Is it on a GT ? Might be something else causing that problem.

But yes, injectors can be ultrasonically cleaned. Take them to a bosch injection specialist.

Get some eibach springs and koni shocks. It hardly lowers the back end and does the front a bit. I had the eibachs on my pervious runabout and it was very comfortable and safe over speed bumps. Infact my runabout now has 40mm FK suspension which is possibly slightly lower and never persents a proble...

I think you can get large quantities from Caravan retailers. They usually stand for long periods of time without use.

175/60-13 Thats the standard G40 tyre size. You can get a couple of makes including the Yoko A539 which I rate highly.
