I hate to say this, but my money's with Peter's.

Re: OBL = $565k

I would say that between 1500 and 2000 hours. However, we could never bill for every hour we put in. 4 hours to adjust a door? Could be more!

Re: Engine Rebuild or not?

Check you have the correct rad cap - originally 4lbs but most people use a 7. (We took a 13lb one from a 3.8 that was causing a core plug to weep).

Re: 4.2 cooling mystery

The fan shouldn't come on when the car is at temperature and running. You might have air in the system. When the car is cool, remove the cap (check it is a 7lb cap and is the correct depth - you should feel a slight resistence when you fit it as the lower seal engages with the header tank). Fill the...

Re: 4.2 cooling mystery

Re: engine running rough series 2 convertible

Alan, have you taken the tachometer out of the ignition circuit? You said earlier on that all was well then the tachometer needle behaved erratically prior to running rough.

Re: Series 2 Door water deflectors.

Re: Series 2 Door water deflectors.

Re: Series 2 Door water deflectors.
