  1. That’s me told then! Can’t remember where I read about the spec of the torslander
  2. Believe they were a cold weather special. heated seats alloys instead of steels for rust prevention windy windows in case of frozen seals think the wentworth 940 had a standard lsd but the torslanda would’ve benefitted if it wasn’t standard fit
  3. Can’t say I’ve owned any kind of limited edition. Did hire a fiat panda 150th anniversary in Turin almost a decade ago for my girlfriend’s 25th birthday. It was nice enough, it can just be made out behind some old heap we parked behind
  4. This was a long time ago but the 95 aero had my bmw truly beat in power output and number of washer jets
  5. My dad is a serial Saab licker but I’ve always had Volvos when in the mood for a bit of swede. It’d feel like cheating but I really must try owning one while they’re accessible
  6. Owned: merc S124, 198,000 Been in: merc w123, 2,600,000. Taxi we hired for a day in marrakech to go to the mountains. Still felt fine
  7. Seems I have fitted 2 o rings and only needed one. Oh well. No sign of a copper washer though, and the drawing appears to back this up
  8. The copper washers are the only thing that come up on a search but I couldn’t see any sign of one when the injector was out. I thought the 2.2 engines were all the same before about 2009 but maybe not
  9. Progress report on the FR-V: After grinding the backplate down the drum handbrake decided to stick. Easy enough fix, adjusted it back and was rewarded with the disc beginning to grab. The previous owner had said something about swapping the slider pins around to sort a similar issue on the other side before the MOT, but this achieved the sum total of fuck all, along with cleaning and regreasing said pins and the calliper itself. Bemused at an apparently cursed rear brake system I bought a new caliper and fitted it without incident. Quick test drive produced no heat or noise so I treated i

    Hot lemon Lupo

    Can’t think of a better car to drive round and round a roundabout than a yellow lupo
  11. 10 year ago to the day. Drove fine over snow on shit summer tyres. Don’t remember the heater being all that good though, but the evening post tower was reading -13 for a few morning on my way to work that year
  12. But where does the horse galloping towards the train come in to it?
  13. Leeds, exactly 10 years ago. That 306 was excellent in the snow and ice.
  14. Last job was to investigate the sticky back brake that was causing the wheel to get pretty hot. Thinking it’d be a badly adjusted handbrake shoe or seized caliper I stopped out down and found that the inner edge of the (new) disc had been carving itself a nice groove in the backplate. Whether this was due to the metal swelling with rust or badly made/wrong discs I don’t know, but a bit of prescision* grinding resulted in a much more agreeable fit
  15. Oil was black bright as me Mam would say. Slightly different filter design, hopefully won’t cause any issues
