ID:	335623 I have an 1987MG Montego Turbo and i am in the process of trying to sort out various running issues with my car.
    1. I am looking at vacuum pipes;-Can anyone advise where i could get the correct replacements ,correct size and what should i be looking for. In particular its the one that runs between the ecu and fuel trap. As shown above. As well as this i am also interested in the 90 degree connector originally but i take it these are no longer available .Any ideas welcome.
    2. The same goes for breather pipes to the carburettor again welcome advice on where to obtain and what i need.
    3. I intend to also replace the cold temperature sensor. Am i correct in think that what i require here is a Lucas SNB101.
    Thanks

    Nice to see you back Glyn. Coolant sensor should be SNB151 from memory and is available in various ebay sites or you local car spares maybe able to supply. Check first to see if the same as some are advertised as the same but are different. Breather pipes are available from your local car spares. Are the pipes from the fuel trap damaged or is it just the elbows? These pipes for minis should do the fuel trap, has elbows but I'm not sure of the length so check first

      Thanks Jeff ,hope you enjoyed your trip to France. The fuel hose -if it was too long it would be ok to cut to the required length wouldn't it? The elbows went and the pipe itself had a spilt which i repaired with electricians tape. I am determined to get the Montego back up and running as it should be i dont like it sitting doing nothing. A mix of lockdown, breakdowns has meant over the last 2-3 years its been nowhere and i cant have that. I want to get back out enjoying it.

        Oh we did Glyn. Yes you can cut to length. Is this your silver turbo?
        Turbos don't like not being used and they throw up issues if not used regularly.

          it is Jeff,and although its not been far i have ensured regular warm ups and moving the car to keep things free. FREE thats not something you hear very often these days. I intend to drain the fuel from the tank,fit an in line filter.get the carb rebuilt,replace the cold temperature sensor,and replace pipes and anything else that may be needed. Then once its properly up and running i will be getting it tuned up. However one step at a time but i am looking forward to getting it back to how it was when i bought it 32 years ago. I have missed driving it.

            Nicely done Glyn, will look forward to seeing it properly one day again lol. The club do have show days up North so maybe you should go to one of those once its running properly
