D'oh! You definitely did. I'll be set for a while then :lol:I thought I included trunk struts in that box of parts I left in the trunk.
Also in the trunk, presumably.
I know I should have done something when the knocking sound stopped...Well considering he already had to order more, I'd assume he already used and/or took care of the ones in the trunk...
Any idea which aftermarket company? Some are worse than others.Labcoatguy;n3543387 said:Hmm, I replaced the crankshaft position sensor with a new aftermarket replacement when I first got the car, so try the camshaft sensor first.
Also on that note when I had to replace crank sensor on the Z I was advised by my mechanic to do that and both the crank ones just to keep it consistent.Spectre;n3543401 said:Any idea which aftermarket company? Some are worse than others.
That was due to Bosch not having enough capacity to keep up with the demand for their Jetronic system parts for OEMs back in the 70s. The only European company they could find that had the production capacity they needed sitting around idle was Lucas. Bosch licensed all their Jetronic stuff to Lucas in exchange for production and Bosch employees were responsible for QC of Jetronic parts. The parts were statistically no worse than Bosch-made items and often had German components - perfectly fine.Perc;n3543400 said:I sourced a fuel pressure regulator for an old Range Rover once. The old one had “Lucas W. Germany” stamped on it. The new one was identical but had “Bosch Germany” on it.
It was the Standard Motor Products one from Rockauto (http://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=443091&cc=1178557&jsn=9)Spectre;n3543401 said:Any idea which aftermarket company? Some are worse than others.
SMP is local, if there's a problem with it I'll go express my displeasure to them in person.Labcoatguy;n3543405 said:It was the Standard Motor Products one from Rockauto (http://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=443091&cc=1178557&jsn=9)
Long time overdue update, but the camshaft position sensor turned out to be for a V12 car and I waited some weeks for it to show up. And replacing it ended up being a moot point anyway. Spectre and I snagged one off a crashed XJR in one of the local yards to be safe though.Der Stig;n3543731 said:Camshaft position sensor has been ordered from SNG Barratt, oddly they had it the cheapest, and by quite a large margin. My order has been "accepted," so just waiting for it to ship.
