Hi Richard and all,
Just added several pdf files to the forum for downloading concerning the long coolant pipes - my version for remediation of their end joints using the GoWesty Repair Kit, completed back in 2012.
Look for docs located at: ... Files/Syncro Cooling System/Nylon Cooling Pipes/

Ended up removing the two long plastic coolant lines, I think for now I will keep them in and will look to get stainless at some stage. Photo shows both ends of one pipe. I assume the steel support should be fully inside the pipe? The one hanging out I can just press back in?
I have a full kit of new hoses, but most seem (relatively) easy to get to with the engine in, so I might leave the old ones in for now and swap them out when I get a set of stainless pipes.
I noticed one of the plastic pipes is dated 1989, so I assume original, the other dated '94 so must have been replaced at some stage. Probably half the hoses look to have been replaced at some stage, so the system overall seems OK for now.
