  1. Hiya all... My brother has bought a new Vectra, his old Vectra is sitting on his drive, it's a 1.8 Petrol, it is 1999, and 170k .... usual rust bubbles, it has been serviced but he's not great at cleaning so it probably stinks, no MOT and it stalls at when you stop at traffic lights and junctions. He has spend loads on it over the years trying to get it fixed but the mechanic that my brother uses recons the fuel pump is the problem although I can't see it because it as had this characteristic for the 10 or so years he has had it and it always starts no problem.. like I say it's had loads of new bits but still stalls, other than the rusty bits it all seems to be there. That is all I know about it. He wants £110 for it because that's scrap value. If you want a cheapie project come to Reading and drag drive it away..
  2. Smith and Allen oils are cheap and properly spec'd.. Another one is Oti oils..
  3. It doesn't take long to hacksaw the nut if you can do it without the nut turning. Claw hammer might help ? put the claw between the nut and shock..
  4. Any pics of how miserable the inside is ? and engine bay ?
  5. Wheelie no problem with this tool.. My mate had one, I was on my R1 and he belted passed me at over 100 and still went mono.. Fucking ledge... He did lose his license later the same year though.. Tough as nails too, another mate took his for a slide at 80mph ( knee down ), bunged a tank on it and rode it around until he got all the cosmetics replaced.. Great bikes.. I am tempted... I might need something to keep my 03 R1 company...
  6. I would suggest taking the letter to a Police station if it were for two things, the plod on the Counter probably won't be able to tell you anything and there isn't likely a Police station within 50 miles..
  7. More filter / brakes, gasket set, service manual madness; YANAHA FZR1000 Randomness air filter; MK4 Golf roof bars, I have lost the keys so probably not worth much; Citroen 16mm lower ball joint I bought for my Berlingo but it has 18mm ball joints..
  8. Loads more randomness of fix, don't forget I just want the space back on my shelf in the Garage so silly offers accepted, if you want to take them to an Auto jumble why not buy the whole lot for fuel vouches or beer vouchers or food vouchers..
  9. Loads of Belts and filters for other randomness of joyful fix..
  10. Another VAG Air filter, it is a panel filter.. 2x Yamaha Thunderace mirrors ( one for the motorcyclist ).. A small drill / driver thing that has a twisty turny head but I have no charger.. A leaf blower hose kit that increases the leaf collection ability..
  11. I have a load of car parts which are nearly all a collection that I have bought for cars I have owned, the new are oil filters, air filter, fuel filters, cabin filters, track rod ends etc.. I am not after a kings ransom for them just make me an offer and postage is extra.. I am in need of the Garage / Shed space, if you do Auto jumbles why not make me an offer for the lot ? Metro.. K series mechanical fuel pump, 1.1l Metro 1.1 k series Fuel filter.. Metro / Reliant brake shoes. The following pics are MK Golf AHF ( 1997/8 ) but are likely to fit on any VAG with that engine.. Not just engine parts here but Track rod ends, wiper mechanism, brake hoses, door locks, Brake pads.. loads of stuff.. As you can see there is genuine parts there, the Hepu box is a genuine coolant pump and VAG cam belt kit.. ]
  12. The roads are getting full up again, there is a mass shortage of parking, villages are being blighted by commuters moderns.. Even my dickhead neighbour has a drive but because he's a dickhead he parks his Merc 250CDI in the close taking up a parking space for someone that actually needs it.. There is a scourge of car crime in the area I live in at the moment.. You never know who might be next.. Some people can't be spoken to arrogance seems to be epidemic in the younger generations ( Not all, just some ).. Is the view from your Mums place a good one ? Across fields etc ?.. Gone are the days of dumping a skip outside as you need a license from the Council nowadays..
  13. Could we fill the load space up with fags and booze ?? Just to make it worth while...
  14. Bit like a Cannon Ball run, or mission of mercy... What are parts like to get hold of ?? How do they get through emissions ?
