Re: WPS Compression Hoses

Thanks Rob i just measured a few plugs most standard 14mm plugs have thread length of about 17mm.
The focus plug (NGK tr5a10) has a thread length 25mm, the TA088 wont reach the first thread inside head.
Is the TA105 14MMx1.25 thread.

Re: 01 Corsa z10xe crank/cam

Got this sorted today the chain had nearly worn through the side cover. Inlet cam was less than a tooth out but not lining up(chain stretch) but exhaust cam was about 3 teeth out.
