Had this little honey delivered today from the Autoshite legend that is RobT who saved it from the crusher.
Has a few issues - biggest of all is rough running / misfire at idle. Top suspect is the inlet manifold gasket which was kindly supplied.
Needs a proper service since the previous giffer owner seems to have been ripped off by his local garage - the air filter is black as fuck and the spark plugs fitted are probably not the correct ones.
OSF sidelight is inop - broken wire. Upon investigating I found some top class wiring repairs to the lighting harness:
Yes, twisted together wires covered in masking tape. Lovely.
All in all it’s very clean and tidy though - 33k on the clock!
I told myself I don't need any more cars, I've got enough and I'll get some fixed and have loads to choose from.
Then you end up working too many hours, one cars breaks the week after getting it through an MOT, then another breaks and you're back to one working/legal car. Instead of getting them fixed you end up browsing ebay and bidding on yet another car.
Today in pictures:
… good night folks.
I should be picking up a car later today- much later though, my train is not due in to the nearest station until 2114. I have something else to do in the meantime and I might post some updates through the day just to amuse myself, it's going to be a long one involving several different modes of transport.
I'm picking the car up from a fellow shiter but it was not his to start with. I've never seen it, it's over 20 years old, I have a 150 mile drive home after picking it up, and I have a broken arm (hence buying this badermatic car). WCPGW?
