Ran very well today when started.

 

We have had it for 4 years and it has always started easily.

 

Film company say they have had no problems.

 

I am feeling defeated at the moment.

It's just as easy/difficult for me to come down the M3 as the A3 so I could pick you up and return you Twiggy.

Thank you Bucketeer, that is very much appreciated, but I`m committed now.

Bollocks! There is bad news after all.

I’ll still be coming but the Mercury won’t be.
I thought I’d best give it a check over this evening, it’s not been out on the road since last year. Everything seems fine except one front calliper has seized on!
I’ve tried squeezing it in and out but it’s having none of it unfortunately. Piston seems to be stuck solid. Needless to say I can’t drive it like that. I’ll have to get a new one ordered but it’s not going to be a quick thing to get hold of.
Sodding car!

Sorry guys but you’ll have to make do with the Volvo instead.

I found that the enable emoticons box whether ticked or not doesn't make fall difference .... I'll just have to end every posting with a question that deserves 4 question marks ????

Sit Rep:

At approx midnight last night a certain big Cadillac had a battery swap. Outcome - a running Cadillac!

Mercury. Stripped one side today, found calliper was ok and a slider had seized. Cleaned up and everything now works as it should. So I will be present in the Mercury.

However some Cadillac repairs may be required at the meet point...

See you all on the hill!

Jolly good day all round! Nice to see you all.


Mercury decided to play up on the way home though! Carbs over fuelling again and it’s running too rich...
Luckily I didn’t have far to go.

Eddie , you have PM

I think it's the alternator, as it should have been able to run the engine with battery disconnected. It couldn't. Your car needed battery power, so I doubt it's recharging.

You could be in trouble, so I've made a few suggestions by PM, get back to me if I can help.
