What needs doing for it to run OK for 2 miles to your lockup? I'm happy to come down and help one weekend, even if it's just to provide you with a tow (saves paying out for a flatbed).

Cheers Rob, kind offer.

 

Assuming this is just to limp it to my lock up (6 miles)

 

I made a list....(I have all the parts at home)

 

- Rebuild stat housing (new stat, 2 sensors) and mount back on engine and reconnect/seal

- Rebuild cooling system - which really means replace overflow pipe and new upper rad hose (I think the pipe that rounds the back of the block could wait for now) and re-install 'new' expansion tank

- Then basically put back together in HBOL style - so air box back on, connect up plenum, exhaust manifold cover etc

 

- Change spark plugs (as I started doing that)

 

- Fill with plain water

 

Limp over to Whitstable...WCPCW?

 

Then in theory I could get a pro to do the cambelt and water pump after Xmas. Then it would be driveable....but probably still needs tyres, new new lower arms, oil and filter...

 

I'll PM you!

So the Fusion has shat its clutch, and the green Mondy has shat its belt, which leaves the grey-primered base as the only working car on the fleet.

Popped on a new Steelie today at the local tyre place, as a treat. It needs to do 150 business miles Bornite-style over the next two days, which will be chilly because of the stuck thermostat.

Hero.

Last year when I ran the Sierra to work in December it was unimaginably cold. It was only my laughing that kept me warm and sane.

This whole situation just proves you right in having a brace of cars ready to go. I’ve had to put the Mercedes onto daily duties for the rest of the year; having it here and a known quantity saved me from buying unknown shite within a 10 mile radius for £300 3nite m7.

You’re doing this all correctly and by the book. Well done!

Did a good job in the wind and rain, but now pulls a bit to the right, lol!

 

Datsuncog's Aspen brochure arrived today #engagesgeekmode - differences in the 1994 model year Aspen from the 1993 Base....

 

Extra features in the Aspen: (1) passenger air bag (2) rear map pockets on the front seats (3) metallic paint at no extra cost! (4) rear headrests (5) body coloured bumpers (6) driver's seat cushion adjust.

 

But you lose out by only get the two speed intermittent wipers (not 7 like the early base).

 

A sort of reverse project drive.

 

Don't say I don't give you guys gripping content ;-)

7 speed wipers? That's overkill!

7 speeds of intermittent wiper. On a base model. It's class, I've used all 7 settings today :-).

 

Then normal.

 

Then angry rep speed.

I do love an adjustable intermittent wiper.

 

My Datsun Sunny B11 had a sort of twirly knob on the end of the wiper stalk which gave you a pause of between one and twenty seconds between sweeps depending on position, and I reckoned it was the best thing ever - really missed it on all subsequent cars owned.

 

The current Phase 1 Laguna has an adjustable switch that gives about five differently timed pauses between sweeps, and it's ace.

 

Can't see why more manufacturers don't put them on - I would have seen a change to a standard intermittent sweep as a serious downgrade for the Mk1 Mondy!

Of course! And Vantman. I don't think anyone here lives East of me in Kent though. We don't have any planet Thanet or Deal, Dover and Folkestone or marshland shiters?

I lived in Margate for a few months about 3 years ago before moving to Gravesend. My g/f has family there still and we'd like to move back in that direction eventually. The coast around Herne Bay or the countryside around Ashford most likely.
