  1. Forgetting ‘poor Cedric’ for a moment, what about poor Heidl? You should be ashamed of yourselves bothering about the fate of his car, which was separated from him under unfavourable circumstances, and he languishing somewhere unknown. Funny that the very same people egging him on to do silly things now come out of the woodwork again to lament the breaking up of his car, when by all accounts his mental health suffered a breakdown too. How about forgetting the broken car and concentrate on the wellbeing of an actual person who needs to get back on the road. Fucking vultures.
  2. The usual misinformed bullshit peddled by the sizeable anti-British portion of the population. Excellent cars, very well built, the only criticisms from an engineer's view are the unsuitability of the exhaust manifold joint arrangement for a transverse layout (which was the same on other cars from the stable), and sliding yoke calipers. The windows never fell out and the shell never flexed; just the usual bunch of cunts knocking anything British.
  3. This is Autoshite; cars are the last thing people are interested in.
  4. Buy Repair Kit - CLOCKS 4 CLASSICS Did mine years ago, you wouldn't know it was there unless you opened the clock up.
  5. Tomorrow (29th) Wetherspoons Glossop from 7 p.m. All the great and the good will be attending.
  6. Given the time it's been standing the wheel cylinders will want rebuilding or replacing. They'll be seized. In any event the whole system wants going through for inspection. Fresh brake fluid will want flushing through the system. It's a full day or two's work.
  7. If the headlamp is same as those on Allegro I have some spare.
  8. Now that is just begging for a stupid German Diesel engine conversion. Not.
  9. Only the British disparage and rubbish their own country’s achievements and heritage.
  10. Manchester Shitty Cuntcil have deliberately created congestion by fucking up the city centre and its roads to justify this. They don't give a flying fuck about pollution - only how much money they can extract from it. I agree that vehicle useage should be decreased but quite the opposite is being promoted. Government sponsored new 'homes' where fields used to be, requiring car use anyone? Oh yes. The constant dumbing down and stupefying of the Great British Public has the already fabulously rich and corrupt shits laughing all the way to the bank.
  11. I killed two birds with one stone, as it were. Approximately 550 miles covered in Allegro t'other day, down and up the Kingdom, a most successful raid. Keeping up with and exceeding modern traffic, a steady 60-70 and over 40 to the gallon. Not bad for a 46 year old Aggro eh? The only downside was the imbecilic clots on the radio none of whom I wanted to hear, and Classic FM doesn't always do it. Ah well, I made it there and back in safety.
  12. I would give you good money for that little lamp above the yellow one - it is properly a car reversing lamp.
  13. You’re massively overthinking this. Throw that spaghetti away along with everything else that wasn’t fitted at the factory and forget all about it. Assuming you got the new loom from Autosparks and it is definitely the correct version, all you need is the correct Lucas wiring diagram. Wires are colour coded for good reason. If not already done, tin any bare wire ends. Start in the engine bay by feeding the panel branch through the bulkhead, then loosely fit it up in the engine bay. The wire run will be easy to see as there will be flexible tabs to hold it in place. Once the entire loom has been loosely fitted to the car having been threaded through and behind what it needs to, start making the connections starting at the control box. Fit new bullet connector sleeves wherever you encounter them (also shown on the wiring diagram usually with their location).
  14. How upsetting. That's just another reason why I won't ever pay for a T.V. Licence.
  15. The fuck is there to recommission? Kick the tyres, light the fires and off you bloody go.
  16. Interior clean, looks sound enough so GIB, FFS. Should be a lift pump, not electronic bodge job.
  17. Conrad Conelrad and I had a splendid Drive It Day on the LAC St. George's Day Rally. There was a good turnout of various cars.
