As its been a long time I'm buggered if I can remember how they went, does this look about right?





While I'm on the subject of brakes, I've lost a pipe retaining clip, as seen in photo, are they generic clips or do I need to phone mr Nissan?

I have used clips off other cars on mine heaps of times, kept losing them lol. Had to flatten a few out a little with a hammer but worked perfectly.

Pretty much the same size, internal measurement is the same which is the most important bit.

Trying to get as much done before she arrives, due date next Saturday, was hoping to get engine back in, but knowing my luck she'll go into labour when I'm half way through.. I've already give her the local taxi numbers just in case Laughing

I forgot to order the seal for the oil cooler bolt the other week, so don't really want to put it in until it turns up, 2 second job while engines out hate to think how long that'll take with it in!
