Never heard of a crash-box? ;) I drove a BE3 across London (admittedly at 2am) with no clutch cable.

Get it got :)

I drove it about 350 miles with no working clutch but that was only a couple of stops and gear changes. The M25 with stop start every few meters of progress  and 20 billions of gear changes is different.

Anybody closer or with a trailer want it?

Driving it clutch less is ok if not too much traffic, so I guess time of day would be important, if I went for it.

I don't have a garage to offer you but I do have a yard with ramps you are welcome to fix your car in if you want to keep it for yourself?

I could even offer a free loan car in case you did not complete the job in one day because you needed parts.

Kind offers but the ZX is just one too many vehicles as my veggie Renault diesel is returning from loan on Thursday the ZX will have go by then as the insurance needs to be swapped over.   On a moped note I have arranged to collect the Pug 102s this evening, as agreed with the seller, but despite several requests he/she has not given me a collection address so it may not be happening, if you are in contact then you may have better luck with them.

102 - He phoned me back Friday but could tell me very little about them and tied to sell me an different bike. He was supposed to be sending me pictures and Saturday I got a text to say he would send them in the next few days. Monday I got a text to say it they were sold. I assumed the better man had got them and settled down to lick my wounds!

ZX - What sort of condition is it in? Logistically getting to you at a time of day the M25 would be guaranteed to be flowing is a problem. I am not desperately needing it but I have space to put it, I like ZXs and it seems such a waste just to bridge it. If I can come up with a plan I can always add it to my insurance while I am waiting to collect it. In the mean time if anybody else wants it I will gladly stand down.

Chris, if you can get a trailer and need a tow car my xantia will be sitting around waiting to be collected this weekend and next? Can't promise it'll be a wafty ride but it's got a tow bar, tax and insurance. I just don't have a trailer

Saying that though you've probably got 5 or 6 cars with a tow bar...

Thanks for the offer I had my trailer stolen and you guessed correctly:

I have a Citroen Visa for light towing
Alfa 156 sportwagon for medium towing
Xantia V6 for heavy towing
Range Rover for 2XL towing

I seem to be struggling to sort out the logistic for this so I am going to stand down and let it meet its fate.

Shame I was wondering if the 1.9 engine would fit into a Visa diesel car easily instead of the 1.7, 11 more bhp or 18% power increase.

I expected worse fuel consumption with the 1.9, but are there different types of 1.9?

From the Visa I get 51 mpg and when I had a non turbo ZX 1.9D I got 48 mpg.

How many gears does the Visa have?

 

The early XUD9 (without the plastic inlet manifold) had a different cylinder head with square inlet ports; the later engine was faster but a bit less economical, I found about 4 mpg in it.

 

All XUD7 engines have square ports.

I have two Visa 17RDs, one with a 4 speed gearbox and the other with the optional 5 speed gearbox. I also have a 2000 C15 1769cc with 5 gears.
