  1. How have I not seen this thread before now? Anyway, I came home in one like this.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I did have a 1299cc engine dyane, so 70bhp through 135/15’s - that was bad enough. It was good for a ton plus. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Absolutely, see 29hp 2CV. I’ve driven those without dropping below 75mph in over an hour. Yes, really. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. The problem is, the absolute only engine that will fit in these is suitcases. So easiest is front subframe from 1219cc samba or visa and drop in a 5 speed BX 1360. Or a Renault/samba 1285 rally prepped engine. With the 8 port head twin Weber’s and 1285 lump a 130bhp could be had. Yes, really. Can you image 130bhp in the visa [emoji23][emoji23]
  5. Yep, that’s exactly what knackered clutch on these feels like. If you were not up in that there Scotland I’d offer to help, but it’s a bit far for me currently. Of course if you wanted to bring the car down to the midlands, it could be done easily. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Is the pedal really heavy? Thats usually a sign of clutch being very worn out. Along with the the usual slippage etc Engine out time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. Some really excellent stuff in there. I’m really liking the S reg Citroen GS personally. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. That’s very cool, it’s nice to find out stuff about your car randomly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Oh I like that far too much. I’m really starting to feel the old square Volvo itch. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Go on then, I’ll take a random. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Maybe, where are you and the car in the country? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. On anything else a reasonable suggestion. On this, completely impossible. No belts or gears. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Ok, mini-update/tantrum. Today was going to be the day it ran again and it sort of was, but only if you count running as .... running badly for 20 second bursts. And flooding itself. The timings out for a start, hardly surprising considering all the timing gear had been off and the fuel pump is ridiculously over zealous. So I set about adjusting the timing, then the only battery I had to hand decided to die, totally. So I packed up and came home. It’s been one of those days. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
