  1. Hi all, I'm currently reassembling my Allegro 1500 which has been in bits for the last 6 years or so. The clutch was slipping due to a leaking crank seal, it's otherwise in good condition apart from being soaked in oil. Is there a way of recovering it? I've tried heating it up with a hot air gun, the oil contamination sort of "sweated" out of the lining and evaporated in a big cloud of smoke. Eventually the smoke stopped. I've put it all back together but I'm unsure as to wether it will work or not. I'm too tight to fork out for a new clutch plate!
  2. Hi, does anyone have any experience of the Vauxhall Carlton 2.3 diesel. I've been to see one and have provisionally bought it for 300 quid. I had a quick search online for mpg figures and if it'll run on veg etc but haven't found anything yet...
  3. These guys are hiring, I gather from a thread elsewhere. http://www.jlmotorengineering.co.uk/index.html "would prefer someone with an engineering background or a modern vehicle technician with a serious interest in Classic Vehicles who is prepared to burn his code reader. "
  4. Might be selling this as I'm not using it & it's time for a clearout. It's a 1999 Xantia V6 Exclusive Automatic,I've had it nearly 2 years & it's always been a second car.The MOT ran out in January,but it's taxed until the end of the month. Good points, Mileage just over 100,000 Good engine,very quiet & smooth Beige leather interior with heated electric seats,no rips or tears Electrics nearly all work,cruise control doesn't 2 sets of keys Quite a lot of history from the previous owner Suspension goes up & down properly,although the rear seems slightly hard Citroen stereo with 6 cd player in the boot Electric sunroof Aircon works,but isn't ice cold Citroen boot liner 4 Alloys No warning lights on.The brake wear light flashes on occasionally,but the pads aren't worn out. Bad points, Gearbox has a clunk going from 1st to 2nd if you accelerate hard.I'ts done this since I got it,& hasn't got any worse.If you pull away gently,it doesn't do it. Bodywork has a few dents & scrapes,the worst is a dent in the n/s sill. Might need a tyre or two There's no battery with it.The original died,so I borrowed a new one from my Dad which he wants back.It's still on the car at the moment though,so it can be started. £175.00 sound OK?,it would probably break for more but I've got nowhere to do it.I'll get some pictures if anyone's interested. I'm located in Fleet,Hampshire.
  5. Heads up for those that may want to go. It's usually the annual autoshite chodfest first meet but I don't think Billy sorted anything this year.
