Pump was originally mounted to the top bar of the front beam using welded brackets. But ...

Re: We all having a knap?

I’m now on my way back from Minorca. Weeks break.

Other than that I’ve done 1/3rd of my annual mileage since December. Just keeps on plodding along now.

Re: Electrical problem

I’m no mechanic, but if you have spark and fuel, no reason apart from timing that your engine wouldn’t start. Perhaps if it was cold enough the electronic choke isn’t working. Compression even?? The fact that you have spark, confirms that the ignition is sending power to the coil. Now a weak spark i...

Re: Master cylinder fluid leak

If it’s creeping up the center hole, I would put it down to the fact that either the centre hole in the grommet is too large or the plastic elbow’s outer diameter is too small. Could try heating the elbow with a heat gun and forcing something inside of tube part in an attempt to increase the outer d...

Sorry to hear of your troubles. I too have very much felt the same way with my project. As is the way £££ Will solve everything lol. One thing to try, swap the rubber grommets and elbows front to back. This should either pin point the elbow and grommet as the fault or the hole in the master cylinder...

Wow!!! That’s a tough MOT you’ve had. Least you get piece of mind it needs attention and can be sorted correctly. When I first MOT’s my Notch with those brakes I failed to do up the four bearing cap bolts. Left a small amount of play in the bearing. It was obvious what I had done. The guy testing it...

Re: Auto IRS axle

Doesn’t appeal to everybody, I used a company a few years ago to professionally shorten my driveshafts by an inch. They shortened them right in the middle then they were friction welded back together. Sure it cost me about £300 for the pair to be shortened plus they rebuilt the CV joints and replace...
