Re: Engine back...

On the bubble wrap point, I'd just repeat what the guys at TT (now Concours Refinishing) told me - don't get it anywhere near your car. Their theory was that the bubbles contain some kind of corrosive gas that leaches out. I haven't researched it, but from bitter experience they assured me it will d...

Re: Engine back...

Very nice work Ash! How did you put it in? Over the top I assume, or did you take the inlet manifold off?

He's on the list of Recommended Specialists on the forum Knowledge Base, specifically for wiper motors. That list is an excellent resource and I commend it to you.

Re: Gearbox distance tube

Maybe if Mladen is turning up a new distance tube, he could try profiling the end to match the radius/profile of the bearing? And thus get a greater contact area? Or would that require an unachievable level of precision?

Re: Dash top

Yes you can Clive. Imagine the horror of having to remove the windscreen before you could get at the instruments....
(That said it is a helluva lot easier to access it all with no windscreen in the way)
I don't have my manual in front of me but I'm certain the procedure will be shown in there.

Re: Which anti-freeze

Malcolm, I believe it will depend partly on what's already in your system, because I understand that mixing blue (glycol based) and red (organic acid) can cause big problems. I was starting with a totally clean slate (rebuilt engine, new rad and hoses) but I went for the trad Bluecol anyway. IIRC it...

Re: MOT exempt certificate

I tried this out. My car has a current mot. The TfL website took me through a bizarre loop. I entered my reg no and it recognised the car correctly, but then told me "ULEZ charge applies for this vehicle". (I did get a green tick for LEZ). So I went through the process of registering, selecting "a v...

Re: Starter motor cable routing

On my car the cable runs along the underside of the upper member of the picture frame. This is how it was when I got it and there was nothing to indicate that it wasn't like that originally. When I replaced the cable during the restoration I followed the same route. (I also sleeved the cable in brai...
