Hi Guy's, This one does have me a tad perplexed as I feel it might have had an engine change done at some stage, but I'm not 100% sure on that issue as the engine shows it was built on the 14th of August 1986 and the jury is still out on when exactl

I guess you can take that as proof nobody wants to do it. From memory somebody is making new catchers for a lot less than that. What you have there is no big deal to repair the damage, just nobody can be bothered repairing things these days
