Plastics out time.. then sit in the boot when it rains.

I'd be tempted to get those dehumidifier boxes and velcro it to the side of the boot to pull the moisture out of the air. I'd also look at the top of the tailgate at the umbilical cord type thing, and the tops of the c pillers They are prone to cracking and letting water in under the rubber seals.

I got bored of reading the same old questions too, and people not listening to what they are being told when they ask a question, it's tedious and frustrating. Part of the quietness could be that the questions have been answered before, and that visitors / readers are actually using the search func...

Hi Gary, I think the mechanism is completely different between the GTE Digi Dash and the Cavalier clocks. Not sure about the later electronic Cav speedos. I assume the pulse will all be wrong. The GTE uses 6, 8 or 16 pulses depending on wheel size and specific cluster / transducer combination. The ...

They also take a lot of funds and patience.

Thought I'd covered this in a how2, 2x15 bolts hold the arms to the rack with a spring plate to keep things in place.
Use a blunt chizel to spread the pinched area after winding the 13mm bolts out of the adjusters.

I'll be playing with De-ox gel again come the spring months I think.

You need the mechanical gearing from a spare set of clocks Rob?

Hard pressed these days if you want it new, some dealers will order you one if they can find them. GPS via Autovaux is the next best place to look.

Same old reasons for me, lack of time ad nothing new really to talk about Cav wise. I got bored of reading the same old questions too, and people not listening to what they are being told when they ask a question, it's tedious and frustrating. Plus the fact my cav has been off the road for coming up...

I wanted to say Happy anniversary to start with but then I found out the 10th one is tin, and that's a pretty crap anniversary to have, so happy birthday instead :lol: Next years is steel, a more fitting celebration I think :scratch Until then, thank you for your support and advice & roll on ne...

Strange though, as I still see a constant stream of new members signing up.

Aye, it certainly looks quiet.

The hot start issie is likely a grounding issue. There should be some loom earths to the top of the rocker cover - if they're loose, or corroded this will cause the issues you've described (did on my Dad's 2litre, and it did on Smokey too. Failing that, you're down to battery, starter, and ecu.. Def...

Sound like I am making excuses - I have the F18 gearbox and pot flywheel. Both of these mean that it is a box off job. Pah!! And it makes sense that if the box is coming off, then I may as well fit a full clutch kit at the same time. Alas the clutch has only done 32,000 miles in the 5 or 6 years si...

Nice idea Gary... Sadly the funds have been beaten into submission, so for now I will just have to persevere and build up the muscles in my left leg. It will get there in due course. It will, I know my clutch used to be an absolute git before I took it out of k109xdb and chucked it in fogs when the...

Hydraulic clutch assembly time :scratch :thumb

Fantastic! Can't wait to see it all fitted :D

Sounds pretty cool - that panel arrived yet?

Sounds potentially expensive going foward, that or time to start cleaning some contacts.
Least for the moment it's sorted.
