George
Personally I would like to say a HUGE thanks to you for all the assistance you have provided in many ways.
Your efforts have always been appreciated and a lot of us would have been in very deep s**t a long time ago if it wasnt for you.
While it will be nice to down tools , it is unfortunate that you have to do it under the circumstances but your health is paramount.
I wish you all the best in your retirement and hope when you take the time to yourself to mend you can get back on your feet and enjoy yourself.
Please keep in contact otherwise I will have to come around to your house and camp out on the front lawn , and that would be pretty for noone!
Once again Thankyou very much for everything and all the best!
Cheers Matt

George, as always my thanks and appreciation go out to you. So, I guess the next question it, what caravan will you be getting to join the grey nomads?

Oh, a quick one for you George, more for fun than anything else.

This is potentially one of the most expensive items in the Ford lists.

Can you please quote me on 2 things.

1. a 1994-1995 Ford Probe Airbag

2. A 1.3l Festiva Throttle Body.

I love these ones, reminds me that owning a Falcon is cheap.

The Air bag module is obsolete and I can't even get a price. :)
The Throttle body is also gone the way of the dodo, the last price I could access for it was $4400.00 retail.

Hey George,

Just wondering if you still stock coolant overflow bottles to suit an EB (with sensor) and the price?

Cheers, Luke

Yes they are available. For the reservoir is EDC 8A084 B $118.65, the seal for the sender is 84AG 17673 AA $8.30 and, if you DO need to replace the sender EA 10K888 A $64.55. :)

Same place as GMH, Mazda, Mercedes Benz and all the others. The people who do the pricing don't have to buy any of the parts. :)
