Default cheers matey

now the manifolds are off and ready for a clean and inspection
but
what next?
new complete ones from TPS 1200
repair kits off ebay 60 ish
and
how far do i go with the cleaning?
egr valve system?
intercoolers?
all relevant pipe work?
gosh im not sure


right im looking at these flap rods
there plastic and metal
the plastic part runs in a plastic bush (bad design)
im thinking of a bushing the bushes idea (maybe a bad idea im not sure)
i was going to buy a repair kit off ebay first to see how much play there is in new ones
im going to inspect further first as it looks like they are more worn near the end where the lever fits on the ball part
TPS sell the end bush and ball rod part Nothing else
so
any ideas guys ???
