  1. Looks like I was the last one to wash and polish the xm for the chevrons rally last year!
  2. Looks like it was stuck on as an afterthought
  3. Had the day off today for the crown to turn off the gas and change everyone’s meters. Sadly this did not happen as they hadn’t told everyone! So off at 8.40 and back on again at 8.45. did the weekly shopping and trip to the bank. Pumped the tyres up on the Mercedes - all low despite looking ok, and blew a seal on my foot pump. £8 from Halfords twenty years ago! Then decided to start the 2cv for the first time since Easter. Battery a little slow turning the motor over, but once the fuel pumped through it started up ok. Not enough juice to power the indicators though until the revs were up from idle. I think I’ll take it to work one day next week for a run. I’m also getting the occasional burning oil smell in the Mercedes when stationary - seems to happen after braking to a stop when the engine is hot. Not all the time though, perhaps once every couple of journeys. My mechanic friend is coming to work on Monday to take a look. I’d guess that there’s a little oil leak from somewhere that is pooling and then dripping onto the hot exhaust. It’s not billowing smoke and there’s 7litres of oil in the engine so I’m not too worried.
  4. Ok that’s Saturday morning done, what have you got for folks to do for the rest of the weekend ! I’ve had a damned radio cassette player for @Six-cylinder ‘s CX in the boot since February. Can’t make this weekend as I am staying with my sister’s family again and need to make a volcano erupt. One day I’ll be able to visit again.
  5. just writing up the latest news. will ask for a pdf for you.
  6. This is tempting me more than a little. I’ve just whatsapped my mechanic friend asking if he knows weak spots. Anyone know if this engine is the same as in my 1994 e class or is it a later v6? I don’t think the wheels are original but they don’t look bad.
  7. Presumably a lot of italians of that era will share things like a header tank, brake pads and plugs?
