Semi-C’s Essential Effluent Offload

Recommended Posts

I’m losing the battle of justifying to myself the need for two council lock-ups anymore, especially as only one of them is housing an actual car now.

The reality of this realisation is that a whole host of my stuff must be rehomed, thusly I shall post up the woeful, the dire and the gopping for your delectation and potential purchase.

Here y’are then:

 

4 x LS400 (UCF10) 15 inch wheels with good tyres.

Bought them to beautify my LS (UCF10) but was bereaved to discover that, being the facelift version, it had larger brakes that require the 16 inch wheels. Ratscocks. Sold

 

5 x Mk1 Granada Ghia alloys. £50

Hmmm, are the tyres any good on the Lexus wheels? What size are they if so? Just pondering them for the Camry....

They’re Dunlop SP Sport tyres with plenty of tread on them. I think* they’re 205/65 15 size (forgive my vagueness)

I would have happily used them on my Lexus, sadly I cannot. Almost contemplated sourcing the 1st gen UCF10 brakes/hubs/etc but that’s another story.

Despite the Lexus being RWD and the Camry FWD it looks like they're a complete match. PM incoming.....

I was about to express regret in missing the Lexus wheels/tyres, as mine are rather corroded, but then realised that as I have the 1998 onwards model - presumably with the larger brakes - I would have suffered the same problem as you. :-D

You *might* need a 5mm spacer, LS's's's's have quite a high offset for a RWD car.

I knew PCD, centre bore etc would be OK, but both are ET45 apparently.

 

Even if there's an issue then the tyres would be of use to me and I'd fit them onto a set of my steels - having to pump up three of them every week gets a bit dull and prevents me using it as much as I should.

 

Anyway, owning a set of wheels might be the first step to Mk1 LS400 ownership......

I’d like the Mk2 Granny wheel arch repair panel please!

 

Thanks.

 

Is postage an option or is it collection only? Which might be awkward depending on whereabouts in E Anglia you are.

Am I glad these apparently don't fit the facelift Mk1, otherwise I'd be really mad now to have missed this.

Skizzer,

 

the granada arch is yours. Ta very much.

 

I’m heading along to Past Parts on Tuesday so am more than happy to fetch the panel along with me to take full advantage of Angrydicky’s collection service, if that’s acceptable for all involved?

 

Postage can be an option too if you like.

 

Cheers.

      I have a Vespa PX. I love it. I commute daily on it.



      I don't have a bike license so I'm riding around on L plates which I'm finding frustrating given that I appear to better understand the rules of the road than 99% of other drivers. Or at least I know how to break them politely. Also I'd like to take a passenger from time to time.

      I'd like to take my bike test, direct access ideally, and I fully understand it's safety training as well, but £700? Ain't gonna happen. I'd like to do it myself on my Vespa, and given that it's a 125 and manual I could do restricted licence test on it couldn't I? NO! I hear you say! Why not? Because bureaucracy. How dare they take away my rights? You could probably fund the NHS with the money that they'd save by not ruining my life etc..

      So enter the LML.. A copy of the Vespa Made under license in India. It's identical in all but name and some suspect quality electrics. WCPGW? Because of modern regs, they've got a cat and hence a bit slower in standard form than the PX that they're based on, until you unleash an extra 10th of a horse by drilling a heart shape in the air filter. True story.



      So anyway, given that they're identical only slower, you couldn't possibly take your bike test on one could you? WRONG AGAIN! YOU CAN!! Apparently it's hard to hit the 31mph required for the MOD 1 test, but I think the naysayers aren't trying hard enough. WCPGW?

      ​So enter an ad on an owners forum. LML, 2 stroke (essential), 2000km, 2 years old, "broken right indicator". £MEGA BARG. I bought it about 2 months ago. Unseen obvs. The only problem is that it's 120 miles away. Several idiots on shiply claimed that they could collect it for reasonable money before changing their minds on time/date/ location. The vendor is a gent, a minister no less, and has been incredibly patient. However as God's birthday is approaching he was becoming less flexible making it harder to co-ordinate with a courier. Van hire seemed expensive and something about him told me that his arms to would be too weak to help me lift it in to a van.

      FUCK IT! Train booked. I"M GONNA RIDE IT HOME. IN DECEMBER. Forecast says rain all day tomorrow. WCPGW??

      Just about an hour ago I went to start my car up, had Mrs Dustman with me, to go and pick Miss Dustman up from work. Turned over fine but took a while to fire up.
       
      Steering felt heavy. Thought maybe as it's currently -5 + wind chill it's just cold & the fluid is thick.
       
      Started reversing out my bay then I was greeted with:
      "DING DONG" - ABS fault.
      "DING DONG" - ESP fault
      "DING DONG" - headlamp auto levelling not working, contact service.
       
      I shut the car down straight away and we went in Mrs D's Corolla.
       
      Alternator is less than 2 months old, it's a recon unit from Alternator Man in Portsmouth. Hoping the cold isn't killing the battery and it's taking the 'nator out with it (battery passed the drop test last time the no-charge warning came up). Looks like a session with the multimeter after work tomorrow.....
