Hi all,

In my quest for knowledge i stumbled across Helium (never heard of it either) but it threw up quite a few well writen articles on ET 4 maintenance so i though i would share ...

Check Engine Oil -

Change Engine Oil -

Check Gearbox Oil -

Change Gearbox Oil -

Air Filter change -

Exhaust removal -

Fuel Tap Replacement -

Fuel Line Replacement -

Inline Fuel Filter -

Spark Plug Change -

This is one of many ways and there seems to be a lot of debate about this...i have massive hands and this was the easiest way for me - if you are more nimble of hand and have all the proper tools then maybe go for the quicker method through the front access panel! Watch yopu knuckles!

Installing a sound system -


A lot of these are quite basic but hopefully they can be helpful to someone!

Good find, but they do seem to be for the later ET4s

E.g. if you have a "pre-leader" engine, there's a sight glass rather than a dipstick...

Will most or all of these "how to's" apply to a S150. Is the engine is similar or the same?
