Dragged the '72 out of the garage last weekend, its has sat there since the end of June, the accelerator pedal isnt to safe, need to get it sorted soon then MOT'd again,


Image

Image


Fitted mi new Indicators :) .......


Image

Mi dad is currently restoring his '64 Splitty, he has done as much as he can at the mo, he cant do no more til the weather gets warmer, so he asked me if he could rebuild the Two engines I have in mi lock up (he gts bored easily) I obviously said yes :)

Got this one off Walkerdude for free :)its a 1500 .........


Image

Image



and got this one a couple of years ago, cost about £50 I think, tis a 1600 .......


Image

Image


Not sure which he is doing first, once rebuilt, will be fitted to which ever car then the one in the car will be refurbished too :)

Have just got back from taking the '72 for the MOT ...........:D


Passed :D


two advisories, drivers side rear wheel bearing needs doin and handbrake needs tightening.


Ran rubbish on way there and back kept coughing and spluttering, checked the points they were ok, maybe a dodgy carb?

Whilst i can vouch for the integrity of Tom,who you got the tyres from,Its always worth checking the dot codes on tyres,especially when buying second hand!
