I did enjoy going for a buzz after so long, steering is spot on

Bypassing the VATS is very easy mate, im sure youll have the service manual there and know where to locate the 2 wires that go to the terminals in the ignition barrel, measure the resistance in the key pellet, then get a resistor the same value, pull the 2 wires out and join them with the resistor, and Roberts your mother's brother....

Thanks to all, steering seems fine no leaks yet, planning on a wheel alignment this Sat, then I can go for a decent run and double check everything, still have half the dash out, from chasing vats, yes vats not bats, had to get in before Nifty.

alignment done Saturday, thought that was all it required, seems it was not calibrated quite right and one of the valves is partly open so it wants to go left, started Sunday the job of pulling it out again, I am getting to hate this.
Anyway took converter 14 months with no results, in 2 weeks and a alignment wasted I have it almost solved, and it was great to be able to drive around a bit while waiting for the alignment shop

finally threatened the steering guy and witin a couple of hours he had in done, last Friday, so fitted it up Sunday and we have been running around no worries.

Car has sat around for so long now one of my wheel speed sensors is malfunctioning, all it does is cut out the traction control but its still drivable till I figure out which sensor and have one sent out etc, so finally :-)
