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.



That won't have helped, I know a few people who lost alot of images because of that unfortunately.

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

It did cheers mate


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.

Hopefully things are looking up and it was just a simple fix Rob?

I got pull cord from bnq and its really flexible but stiff enough to allow you to feed cables pretty much anywhere. Sounds like your're getting there.

Measure, and measure again. Get yourself some clamps too, they will help alot. I have the book figures somewhere for the measurements somwhere, but do not cut out the old slam panel until you have it as straight as you can get it. Otherwise you're going to have a nightmare on your hands trying to ge...

I had massive issues with my clutch after putting halfords box oil in it much similar as to what you're describing to be honest Rob, so a good flush through and new GM oil could cure a fair bit of those issues. The pivot arm for the clutch fork is another place I would look at, specifically where it...

All progression Rob, how's that clutch now? Or have you developed calves like Arnie?

Got another PM for you mate


Replied, ta muchly.

Remind me to send those plugs Rob! Sorry, I forgot the other day.

And a less obvious observation was that my car has a big yellow connector for a factory fit alarm. My connector has a cap on it. [ Image ] Within the cap is a bridging piece that shorts two pins. (I won't advise on a public page, which two pins are shorted together). With the cap removed, the car w...

Late to the party again...

Rob, you need to go and see someone about getting an agreed valuation on this. Last thing you want is the worst happening and they only pay out xyz.

Fingers crossed Rob :)

Hi Envoy not sure if you got my PM mate?


Just got it and replied- cheers. I must have PM notifications turned off :/
