Some more still to come :cool
Did you do these John, off master tapes? Have they been digitally restored to some degree? - they're pretty good quality (I notice the audio has been cleaned up a lot... or replaced with the actual song recording).

Re: BL Day at Peterborough is no more

The 25th Anniversary themed show saw fewer cars turn up, presumably because people thought the day had become exclusive, but as it turned out no-one bothered to make the effort to bring a '93 car and some other owners stayed away. I think this is a great shame personally. It was well organised, in a...

Re: 220 Coupe Turbo

Does the gear gaiter and gear stick position look right? I've only ever seen the stick shift in the middle of the opening in the console. It's like the mounting has been pushed way forward, or is that normal for a 220?

Re: Cambelt snapped

You could always try turning the engine over via the crank pully bolt through 720 degrees and test whether anything is butting up against a piston crown? That's the lowest cost option assuming you own a basic tool kit? We done that, it seemed to spin freely, a glimmer of hope. Looks like you might ...

Re: Cambelt snapped

Would a look down the plug bores with an endoscope device save taking the head off only to find fortune had been smiling? Remember this happening a many years ago to someone , the cause of the failure was water pump not the belt , The water pump seizes and that strips the teeth on belt. so examine ...

Re: Cambelt snapped

Thanks for the replys. I was doing 70mph & it just died no bangs or pops. Worth a new belt with CORRECT alignment of both cam shafts and the crank shaft. Other than that, it's head off and have a look. Not a small job and I'd only really entrust it to a decent engine specialist who does honest, fai...

Re: Throttle sensitivity

Thanks for the replies, I'll have a look at the cable and adjuster etc, the pedal has what feels like full travel, goes as far as I'd expect. Vacuum lines all look good to me, I've had a good look around those but will double check. And the idle is good at about 800rpm when warm, drops when any loa...

Re: Throttle sensitivity

Hi all, This isn't really a huge problem, more of a question about the rover 216 gti's in sohc form, and whether this is just one of the characteristics. Since I'm not familiar with how they should drive, mine has what I would call a sensitive throttle. When I press the throttle when driving the ca...

Re: Clock repairs

My BRM has got the typical missing pixels on the radio/clock display; I bought a new old stock one from AE Wilcox but it’s just as bad :laughing2 Is there anywhere that can repair these? It’s really irritating as it’s one of the few imperfections on the car. This chap repairs them: https://www.ebay...
