What a bugger....

There are some bloody cowboys out there. Some of them are even on YouTube... this chap completely missed the crushed vaccum hose on the #1 cylinder intake... and then re-crushed it again when installing the manifold...!!!



It would be very easy to drop something into one of the intakes when removing it - one of the intake mounting nuts perhaps?

I was SUPER careful when I removed my intake to change the glow plugs - I even used a magnetic probe to lift each nut/bolt/washer from it's location etc.

Sorry to your engine in this state...
