Yes I have seen that but have you seen the price £60.10 , for that I would expect the whole car in working order and no rust!

And now Mrs6C has broken the front passenger one so I need one of those as well.

Jaymic over in Norfolk are the only people in the country I know of who can set up the Kugelfischer correctly. I ended up going to France to get mine sorted (actually nearer than Norfolk) and once it's sorted it should run spot-on with a minimum of upkeep. It's an irritatingly complex system, but once set-up properly it should theoretically be much more reliable than a carb

Are they the BMW people?  I think I bought some bits off them once years ago.

There is a plan "A".  Our local Auto sparks Mike ended up working for a Porsche specialist and Porsche along with BMW  also use Kugelfischer injection and he has some experience.  In fact enough as it was Mike (now semi retired)  who got the 504 running for me to start with. I will ask him to have another look, but at the moment there is so much stuff in the garage he couldn't get to it. The problem with it cutting out and not restarting when very hot has been with this car for many years as. I got the car from a friend who always reported a problem. If Mike is unable to solve the problem then I guess Plan B is Jaymic.

I have  been offered a pair of seat belts for the XM that I have agreed to and now I am waiting for the guy to confirm.

I thought the photo on the xm fb group looked familiar, glad you've found one! 

I need rear tyres next year too. Oodles of tread but sidewall cracking...

A pair of new rear Tyres for the 200TE today.

The ones on the car were not quite worn out but we did not like the cracking between the treads.

I can see the rear subframe mounts in that pic. Have you ever prodded them? Unpleasant memories here of not finding much metal above.

I have never checked myself but June this year it was  MOTed at a Merc specialist who did some welding in the drivers footwell. It has also been to my favourite garage for brakes all round Sep this year  and if they had spotted something I am sure they would have reported it.

From what I remember the subframe mounts were great on this one, the driver's footwell was beginning to get interesting, but the cladding was doing its job elsewhere (good and bad). And it was such a wonderful, calming beast to drive.

The other job for today was a fitting the JCB tyre.

@Talbotmessaged me this morning to say he was willing to give fitting the tyre he nursed down from the north a go this afternoon. A quick rearrangement of the day and we were at it, yes all right Talbot did the hard work but I gathered the stuff together and held the camera!

It all went well except one problem Talbot could not see where he was going due to the failure of out contracted digger window cleaner @beko1987!
