The Yanks arnt keen on Beige Mustang II's  or  Mucus Green Pinto's either :-(
Philistines!!!!
Never mind we like them :mrgreen:


I’m not afraid to admit this on here... a Pinto is on my hit list of cars I must own! Can’t explain why but it is!

Agree with The right honourable Junkman too. All they’re into big over in the US is fins n chrome or muscle cars.
The big full size barges, gas crisis downsized stuff, US small economy cars etc etc seem almost universally hated. But we’re a more enlightened bunch over here aren’t we!?

It's all happening over here this weekend!  Huggy has been out for a little drive today, for the first time since October.  He's going in to get his new brake pads fitted tomorrow so I thought I should make sure he starts and moves ok.  Well he does, yes, but the brake pedal is a bit soft.  Must remember to tell Malcolm about that...

Well it seems the brake issue was mostly one-sided, the left side: the pads had worn so much there was only metal left and they'd damaged the disc.  On the right side the pads were ok, so Malcolm put those on the left rather than wreck my lovely new pads.  So I've ordered a pair of discs now.  Malcolm thinks the left caliper has been letting fluid escape because the piston had almost escaped too but he's managed to reassemble that.

 

More money, more work.  Hey ho.

That was the plan last year at Mick's Dinner but the worn bush in the gear selector cable was preventing the starter inhibitor switch to release and I turned up in the Alfa 156.

Yes it was, even though Huggy's alternator was already waving the white flag.  Never mind, once these discs are on he should be fit for the summer.  I might even get to some events!

I think it was that same day I kept having the carb flooding issue too. Getting the Mercury to drive home was a right pain. I remember getting sunburn too!
I’ve had the Mercury out this year already, a couple of weeks back when we had that warm sunny spell. Absolutely no problems with it and it drove great, so I’m going say the carb rebuild has cured the flooding problems.


Glad your back on the road again btw Eddy! A nice long trip in Huggy should be in order once your brakes are sorted I reckon!

My new discs have arrived, and now that I've seen what's actually on the car, these do look much more suitable.  Need to see Malcolm now and get booked in for fitting!

I look at it this way Paul:  I don't drink and I don't smoke, so what else am I going to do with the money?  I might as well put it in the tank!  That said, on the motorway I can average 19-20 or thereabouts, so around town if I'm getting 14 it's good enough.  I don't know what I'm getting, I haven't done round-town calculations and have no wish to.

I'm driving a Cadillac, the Standard Of The World, so really, who cares?

Huggy's gone in today to get his new brake discs on.  I took him for a little drive first to get the engine warm because the garage is only 5 minutes walk from home.  Collection tomorrow afternoon.
