214GSi on Gumtree £300 Southsea, poss HGF

Looks a little ropey this SPi, but has a year's ticket - if this was closer I'd be all over this

214SLi 16v SPI - fuel filter orientation/charcoal/purge valve

I'm a bit confused on the set up for the SPI engines in terms of the fuel filter/purge valve/charcoal canister. My reading of the situation seems to be that on the earlier cars the fuel filter would be mounted to the bulkhead horizontally, and there was no purge valve/charcoal canister. Later models...

Re: 214SLi 16v SPI - bad vibrations at idle, poor throttle

Thanks for the suggestions - I won't get time to fettle until the weekend and firstly have to clean up the mess in the engine bay I created late last evening - changed oil, had aborted changing filter as it was apparently welded on, but obviously I loosened it a little, started up, oil pressure buil...

Re: 'The BMC & Leyland Show' at the British Motor Museum 1st July 2018

The 45 V6 won't be coming, sadly, due to a seized brake caliper - replacement not coming until early next week. So, the Streetwise will have to come in its place. Shouldn't be the only Streetwise on display as I understand a fair few will be joining the Longbridge convoy. I'd definitely like to meet...
