Re: 2019 Restoration Show Centrepiece Charity Cabriolet

Tim and Chris.............I could post wristbands to you tomorrow, OR you could pick them up when you arrive in the foyer on Friday: I will just need to ask one of the other people on the stand to let me pass on their phone number to you both so that you can call them when you arrive, as I will not ...

Re: 2019 Restoration Show Centrepiece Charity Cabriolet

Chris, I do believe that Simon slept in his van parked in an NEC lorry/trailer park a couple of years ago (mainly to stop anybody interfering with his trailer) but it was definitely very much unofficial/under the radar! It is likely that if the NEC security staff found you sleeping onsite they would...

The ABS light will illuminate if the battery voltage drops below a predetermined amount. I have experienced this both on the Bosch system on the 220 turbo and on the Honda system on an 827 Vitesse i used to run. With the engine running and the load from the ignition system, fuel pump, etc, the volta...

Re: Which things will kill our cars? Common faults?

Could your coolant pressure problem be caused by an airlock in the system?

That can sometimes happen after the cooling system has been worked on, even after the system has been fully bled when first started up.

Re: Rover 420 GSi Tourer

I totally agree with Jeremy and not just because I am a Turbo owner. Several years ago I ran a 420 GSi Tourer just like Paul's and it was a ...
