    I always used ep 80/90. Good enough for Pintos
  2. Was unaware of this place. Thought I'd drop in on my way to Blackpool sometime. But at £10 each and no Seddons I'll probably give it a miss.
  3. I have 2 pairs of coil spring compressors. Because I always use 3 compressors on any spring. I showed my son how to use them on the Yaris a couple of weeks ago. Put them in the van afterwards! My 75 failed the MOT today, broken front spring and a drop link. Where are the spring compressors? Err.

    Bloody astra J

    Be aware that if you do and it breaks down again the RAC will wash their hands of you. @warren t claimhas a truck though😀
  5. That's me day after tomorrow. It'll be fine.
  6. Thanks for caring. More alive than ever. Been busy getting to know the young lady. It's a strange, but very nice, experience. Off to Lincoln, Brayford Pool overnight today. Too many cars now. No room to function. May have to sell one. Forgot to mention, my other twin grandchildren have also been winning trophies in their car.
  7. Holiday went well, another holiday soon, Racing has been uneventfull. Hannah still wins, Stephen rarely. Amelia does her own thing at her own speed. Started to build a third Yaris. However. This turned up. F600 Autograss Special. Bike engine, 600 Suzuki iirc. Plan is for Hannah and Stephen to share it eventually, Should be able to buy a twin car trailer and tow Yaris and Special whilst still under the weight limits. Had a practise today. Accelerator cable broke (Tandem bike cable). we had a spare, but at home in the garage! Pedals need moving for comfort and maybe need thicker cable on accelerator. Future updates may come along soon.
  8. I used a Minor for a couple of years. You need something with a ready parts supply. Rover 75 at the moment. Not quite a Classic, but much more refined. Cheap enough to throw away if you buy the right one.

    He didn't say it was a Yaris. When you can understand hairnet speech, understanding Shadow speech becomes easy.
  11. Many will say fix it. I am not one of those. Fix it if you love it. Otherwise flog it on here for scrap value and cut your losses.

    This was mine. 2.0 Pinto . It had a Granada servo. One day the battery was flat and I pushed it to the top of a steep hill. It didn't start and the brakes were useless. At the last minute it fired and stopped just short of a major road. Early ones used bolt threads as door hinges, Later ones a steel bush. If you didn't oil them the door opened leaving the aluminium hinge panel detached from the frame. I'd have another
  13. No, that was Ginetta GRS. Well put together but they didn't sell many. Wrong doner imo. I had an NCF diamond, Mk 4 Cortina based. Loved it, but lost a lot of money when selling it on.
  14. Can possibly collect now, say 6 pm ish tonlght (sat) if you get back quick and are in.

    Cheers Pete

      Can do if you like - Im taking the missus out about 7pm (one of her mates birthday party) but there is no huge rush

      Im at number 27

      If Im not in then my son will be and its in the big shed (he might have to pull his car forward tell him)

  15. As mentioned elsewhere I have a newish girlfriend. I visit Tiffany's at Blackpool often as a single. Lazy Sunday. Its £35 bed, breakfast and 5 course evening meal. I booked 2 sea view separate small rooms a while ago. We get to reception together, they know me. Ah! Mr Mallinson., and the ladies name? My mind goes blank. err XXXXX , whats your surname? Cue blushing and laughter all round. She has a small room. Mine is very large, Double fronted sea view with a double bed. I've booked a single. Checking out I thank the receptionist for my room. No problem, thought you might like it.
