  1. I want to sell the Starlet and possibly the Yaris, then put another engine into the Carina.
  2. Whoops, I got mixed up! In that case, 4A-F powered Avensis... Avensiii must be E10 compatible! Might make them a good source for E10 compatible plumbing for older cars.
  3. The fact the only engines listed as being compatible are ones not shared with the Carina E would imply as much. I wonder what they changed when they went over to the AZ engine from the A and S in older cars.
  4. Would you mind putting me down for a bacon roll and brew as well?
  5. I'm probably going to be stopping off in Swansea and Aberystwyth to break the trip up a bit, would any of the southern contingent fancy meeting up?
  6. I wonder how Inverary's council would react if you painted your house in a colour that isn't white...

  8. My welder has decided to pack in after a year and a half of shitty bodges. Very convenient given my M.O.T is tomorrow and you can still see the road through the floor. I had planned on joining another patch to the one already tacked with the ridge in the floor pan formed into it but that's not going to happen now.
  9. Thanks to Ryanair, I arrived in Bournemouth nearly two hours late, sorry I couldn't make this one. >_<
  10. I'm back in Ireland for the week and Harris has developed even more ventilation just before he's due in for a test. And to add insult to injury, the Carina has started to knock and blink the oil pressure light when the engine is straining. Might be time for 20w50. I spoke to the local Toyota dealer and apparently they want £176 for a set of oversized bearings and referred me to someone who'll grind the crank, whether I'll actually work up the motivation to try something that heavy is another question.
  11. I wonder how feasible it would be for me to go straight from Bournemouth to Buckingham as soon as I get out of the airport.
  12. The owner of the LiteAce which occasionally appears in my thread isn't on the forum but has expressed interest in going camping in the aforementioned van in Wales among a rake of chod, would it be possible to put him down as an attendee as well?
