  1. They were still cheapest for me and hadn't had any issues.this year,just surprised at the difference.no matter,all done for another year,bit the bullet and paid the lot rather than pay another £52 in direct debit
  2. Just had my insurance renewal come through,£309,about a tenner less than last year,except I now have a years NCB.run a new quote through with the same insurer,increasing mileage from.5 to 9 thousand,£224! So I've just paid for that to start from when the current one ends,why they can't just send me.the best price to start with who knows.thinking this might be the case I had set current policy not to autorenew a few days ago lol
  3. Weather permitting I will be working on my dad's new car tomorrow 2 owners,first worked at the factory and bought it direct
  4. Yes you certainly won't be able to fit anything but the original wheel on the front,as the offset is such that the centre of the kingpin is inline with the centre of the wheel,you may if the pcd is the same be able to fit them on the back,but with a 197 villiers I wouldn't want the extra drag of wider alloys!
  5. Im pretty sure Steyr had one to check for overheating,how it coped with the transmission etc,as it was their engine they would have wanted to check it was satisfactory before allowing it to be used
  6. Yes I had seen the rest end less invacar appear on Facebook,given the seller has no off road parking or storage or garden I wasn't surprised to see it for sale lol. The car in the trolley pic is a Gordon,a non disabled car,but based on an invalid carriage design.
  7. Personally I think the bumpers would look great in body colour,I always find chrome somehow wrong on eastern bloc cars,a bit too decadent and a waste of valuable resources lol
  8. Just had the rear drums off my Yaris verso and cleaned them,and adjusted them up as handbrake was getting a bit baggy,still some meat on the shoes and I was able to finish off dinitroling the rear beam.now handbrake holds on 2-3 clicks and braking feels much firmer auto adjust my arse lol.its.nice for a job to go to plan for a change!
  9. Given a set of plugs is a tenner I do wonder why they weren't changed,also have to disagree about having to take the dizzy out as I certainly never used to,do need certain tools to get in there but it can be done.dont blame the car it wasn't it's fault
  10. Yes they fetch good money now,as with most things,they won't be cheaper next year
  11. Aha so it's you,seen your posts in the mz group pages,top purchase,my first bike was an ETZ125,passed my test on it,and I've been riding MZs ever since my current MZ,5 years with me this year,which is a record lol
  12. Yes I'm aware of the car,was worked on by Adam "dick" Turpin so I'm not surprised you have issues. Generally oil in dashpot is about half inch below the top.They generally like to run a bit rich.Prior to being mot exempt owners would usually have to weaken it right off to get through the emmissons,then richen it again to drive home
  13. Yes exactly the same,same engine.of course access is much easier in a Kitten.
  14. "mate" gets an instant block,as does anyone called: Wayne,Craig,daz etc
  15. Really having no luck job searching,I'm literally searching most of the day,I don't feel like I've earnt a break from it unless I've achieved something,I know we have all the covid stuff affecting the market but the few jobs I can do are either min wage and wouldn't cover the cost of getting there or too far away and min wage.Ive got about 14 applications out,I had an interview over two weeks ago and checked with them as I hadn't heard and they still haven't decided,which to me says we're waiting to see if someone better comes along,I have got a phone interview tomorrow which I'm.dreading as I
