Re: Help! Fastback Body Removal

Hopefully you wont need heat. It will just be sticky glue as angelo says. I remember spending about 2 hours getting mine apart. It was just a car of slowly slowly and let the glue weaken as your work it back and forth. Good Luck!

Fingers crossed, but it shows as not being taxed or sorned 25 years with no MOT history. Hopefully buried in a garage somewhere

Re: Loose cylinder headbolts?

I could well be a series of small issues that have lead to it. But as you say, fixing things one at a time often gives a clue as to the root of the issue. Finger crossed its "simple" in the end!

To be honest it sounds like its worth having the rocker covers off and check the two nuts which hold the rocker shaft on. Iv...
