Hmm. I'm not sure I really want to see other people's shite. No need to take the name of this place that literally.

 

I hope you escape Glasgow safely. I've heard the locals are rough, and have been known to force people to buy dreadful Daimlers against their will.

You didn't bring a Volvo with you to appease the Weegie God of Flatpack Furniture, you only have yourself to blame.

First impressions:

Why do it idol all over tha plaice?

Specially in P and N?

Also seems to not want to drop revs, so if you let go of the gas pedal at speed, you just carry on at the seem speed forever. Or if you rev in N they go up and come down very slowly.

Will try a vid.

Yes.  There's a doofryfurkin you can adjust under the bonnet.  To the right hand side of the engine - at the end of the throttle cable.  Give it a twist (i think) clockwise and that should drop it down.

 

There was about 2" of travel on the throttle pedal before it would respond - and thus wouldn't always kick down willingly.  Garage adjusted it but I reckon a bit too far.  I left it as, where it was before, it could be an arse to get it to kick down.  I got very used to dropping it manually using the shifter.

 

Maybe the cable has stretched?  Dunnolol.

You’ve also not referenced the brass screws in the door card or my dodgy leather patch on the seat!!  THAT'S CHARACTER.

Those brass screws ALMOST hold the door card on. Theyre trying their best and I wont hear negatives said about them.

Had a couple of hours to kill above the border while I awaited the decent of Loser1 and the Scoob.

 

Stopped at a village called Haddington for a bit of spotting and bait.

After a bit of local culinary mediocrity and a quick look around each others cars, we hit the road and pointed southways.

The Merc kept up with the MODERN MONSTER well enough.  I really like this green machine.  Its got its faults and the throttle cable/idling issues want looked at but its just got so much character. 

 

Thouroughly enjoyed collecting it and running it down the hill.  Cant knock the levels of comfort and the spec. The sound system/tape player sounds remarkably good, far better than I had any right to expect. Even the coathanger puts an excellent shift in as a radio ariel. Visibility is cracking, and its a nice simple, easy car to enjoy.

 

 

 

 

Many thanks to SRi05 and LoserOne for helping to put together a great day out.

Just made it home.  Only 11 hours and 344 miles for this collection.  I must be getting auld.
