Red kite, John

I have just looked at the key fob again and the dealership name definitely ends with, ————gs. so it is not Henlys. Does anyone know if there Was “Longs” in Guildf...

Re: fuel & temp gauge reading to high.

Thank you again for your reply, I have looked on the RS site and to be honest I am totally confused, would you be able to provide part numbers and maybe a diagram of how to make the unit.

Re: Oil Filler Cap, Gap to Bonnet, and Improving Breathing ?

I never did hear back from CMC so I chased them today to be told that they do not have any in stock and it is no longer manufactured....
Does anyone know where I might be able to purchase one of these.
