Hi,

Can YOU tell me?

1. If I have fitted the engine bay seal correctly? It seems OK but it rests on parts of the exhaust and also on top of the rocker covers - Is this normal?



2 . Also, any ideas why the front of the car is sitting so high?

It's got a brand new beam, shocks, ball-joints, steering box - and it's really stiff!



Thanks!

The seal is exactly the same as the original in shape and size - just checking that it sits below the tinware and not on top! I dont remember it being visible from the rocker covers before that's all?...

The exhaust is stock. The seal touches it on the parts for the heater - that connect the tubes off the fan to the heat exchangers.

The front suspension has no movement in it whatsoever. It won't bounce and it wont adjust to bumps in the road.

Any ideas?

I had the same problem with a new puma beam. The bearings were VERY tight. They did free up eventually.

Cool - I'll pack a load more grease in there - had forgotten about the roller bearings.

Any ideas on the engine bay seal?

Thanks,
