Replaced the turbo, changed the oil again (had a fuel smell to it again)
Still smoke, had it run for a while and now smoke and water from the exhaust..
seems like the coolaint level went down too, small smudge to the fillercap..


I am going to set this car on fire!

Somehow lost the reverse light wiring. Redid the wiring from the fusebox to the switch and back.
Got the Black wire that Goes to the light.. just need to find it!

Reverse lights aren't necessary for apk. (For your '86 anyway).

Kay getting closer now, put a burner to the cat to burn the oil out, no more smoke at startup or idle.
However after some driving the smoke returns, the upper hose get really hot and swells up (yeah yeah thats what she said)
the lower hose doesn't gain that much heat at all.

First i was thinking radiator cap, but after closer inspection i noticed no swirl effect in the coolant box when revving , so waterpump..?

Water pump, thermostat? Clogged heater/radiator/some line?

Did you ever resolve it, and what's up with the car now?

Drove the car a little to get the brakes back to life and gave the car a wash.
altenator gave out and the tail had to much damage apparently for MOT.
Alternator is already replaced now to figure out how to fix this NLA part..

Bummer, but if the offer was that good, then the buyer really wanted it. Hope he enjoys it!
