    Re: NH TM155 CCLS pump problem

    Ah, yes. A square section seal would be a bit difficult to find in a kit - and this looks like a job you would not want to go back into to correct a fault!

    Cleaning a cooling system

    What's the best way to clean the rust out of a cooling system prior to refilling with rust inhibitor?

    A proprietry cleaner, or laundry powder (so I've heard!)
