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.
