      As posted in News 24, a cheap non-running Senator proved too much to resist.  So here it is.  Egg also owns half, so the pair of us can share the joy/despair of getting it roadworthy.

      It was advertised as a non-runner, but the seller said it had ran previously.  His son replaced the fuel pump and filter, but managed to wire it up incorrectly.  I only noticed this as the buzz of the fuel pump happened after the engine was cranked, and not before.  Yep, bit crusty under there but it's mostly sound underneath.

      But it still wouldn't fire.  I did some random loosening of fuel hoses by the fuel rail, just in case there was an air lock or something, and after plenty more cranking it fired up!  No idea if the random stuff helped, or if it just needed loads of cranking.  Exhaust is shot, but after a brief drive around the block I felt buoyed up so went back later for a Vauxhall 1,2 rescue mission.

      This proved optimistic, as upon return it was misfiring like a bastard and would barely manage the block run.  12 miles like that is asking too much (it has an MoT, somehow).  Recovery it is then...

      Greetings all.
       
      After lurking here for a short while, frankly liking what I see and enjoying the various shite, the site has well and truly struck a chord with me. I'm a serial buyer of ropey sub £1k vehicles, don't have to but genuinely enjoy it.
       
      I feel like I might (Just might) have found my 'spiritual' home here
       
      I've been posting across the web on owner specific forums (Usually using either my JoeyEunos or RandomPrecion handles) for a while now, but from here-on-in I will pull my threads together and merge them here into one ghastly topic.

      This evening I venture forth into hitherto unknown lands (Kirkintilloch) to collect my latest acquisition.

      Which, naturally, has issues.

      I have purchased my first line of defence.



      Which appears to have antigravity properties

      More will follow this evening...
