  1. WD 40 v Plusgas, what's the best for loosening yer nuts?
  2. Throttle body or MAF sensor? That's where I be heading first.
  3. I wish people were wetting their knickers over my three pointed star. I don't think I've ever had less interest in a car I was trying to sell. Hope the 740 gets saved though.
  4. So, there's me trying to sell the mighty Merc, and lo and behold, Mrs Tets Pajero has decided to throw its alternator belt. The Paj is not the sort of car that you can buy parts for anywhere, so I've ordered said belt. Hopefully it will be here by Saturday.

I though I'd have a queue around the block with people waving money at me. Anyone would think I was trying to sell a sack of dogshit.

To cut a long story short, I bought a replacement selector off of ebay. These can be replaced from inside the car.

  9. Anyone looking for a rather clean MX5? https://www.volvoforums.org.uk/showthread.php?t=308749
  10. Anyone fancy a fettle? If you're not a member, give me a shout and I'll put you in touch. https://forums.mbclub.co.uk/threads/w124-300d-1992-171k-mls-spares-or-repair.250702/
  11. That doesn't seem an excessive fail sheet to scrap such a decent looking motor surely. I reckon if you give it a bloomin' good wash and put an ad up here, someone would surely pay in excess of 262 quid for it. I would if it were and auto.
  12. Just seen this over on the blue forum. Seems like a bargain to me. https://forum.retro-rides.org/thread/214848/320d-touring-138000-miles-bedford
