Re: FBHVC position on ban on sale of new cars with IC engines from 2030

I never drive into either Bristol or Bath any longer, mainly because of the parking charges, the bus fares are exorbitant as well, although fortunately I now qualify for a free bus pass. :D

I'm that ancient that the old gits stipend kicks in soo...

Re: Rover Revivals Revival

Well done Craig, there is a lot of poor work done by the trade and not just by back street garages either. Part is probably ignorance of the vehicle and the rest a couldn't care less attitude.

Re: 1995 216SLI - impulse purchase!

Reference the clutch bite point; it's a manually adjusted clutch cable and you will need to remove the induction trunking/battery/battery tray to get near it. A set of 3/8 sq drive single hex' sockets will be very useful, pull back the adjuster as its located by small round dowels in the friction fa...

Re: Rover 416 GTI Auto - Restoring an old friend

Don't use waterless coolant [ Evans springs to mind ] it's secret lies in it's poor heat transfer characteristics. The stuff leaves the heat in your block/cyclinder head instead of transferring it to the cooling system! It's flammable and very slippery [like oil] banned by all forms of motor sport! :o

Re: Value for 416GSi?
