I have recently bought a LWB 1994 L Daihatsu Fourtrack 2.8 TDX and paid £2700 for it. Only had it three months when the power steering pump decided to shear off its mounting bolts! So into the garage it goes, found that studs where still in the engine block and they had to be removed. So because of the difficulty of getting to them the engine had to be taken out, once out the studs where extracted & they also noticed the clutch was on the way out so it was replaced. All is good and off i drive on my holiday to Ireland in the Fourtrack. On my return i remember the MOT was soon due so when i arrived home i booked it in at the garage. Failed, great i thought hopefully not much will need doing.......
