  • Potential new forum section

    Hi everyone. As one of my recent posts about finding the correct oil pressure switch for a turbo engine has generated a few posts relating to which part to get and where from, I was wondering if it would be a help if I set up a new forum section where specific information like this could be stored. I am thinking of threads for specific parts, with entries showing Unipart/BL part numbers and current cross references to other manufacturers so that when something is needed it would be fairly easy to search the one forum thread to find all the information needed. Let me know if you think this would be worthwhile.

    Hi Pete.

    This could be a good idea. I would like to see common service parts included, eg oil filters, air filters, spark plugs, distributor caps, rotor arms. etc

      So, would one thread per item suit everyone? e.g. One thread for all oil filters, one more for spark plugs, another for O/P switches, and so on. Then you just need to search the one thread to find the cross references without splitting between Maestro or Montegos or any of the different engines. Also, anyone would be able to add a thread if it hasn't been recorded previously, so we don't end up with multiple threads for rotor arms, for example.
