This matter has been discussed here and explains my concerns about the upgrade better than I can.

Its certainly looking like a spin off now.. The car has been inactive for over 6 months - it has had body work done and it has been at the workshop over the winter They did the job between other more urgent projects. It suited me as my garage was empty for the winter. However this inactivity has pos...

I have just been quoted a jaw dropping ?180 for all the bits required to go back to a paper filter!!!!

It looks like I will take off the spin off and try and re- seal the kit using a new sealing ring as suggested by Kingzetts

John Thanks for your reply, (and all the others) I was beginning to think it was me I dread oil change time - This is exactly the problem I am having, the large seal is leaking and they are not available seperatly. If you take off the adaptor it is a devil of a job getting it to re-seal - too slack ...

Oil Filter - spin off or traditional?

My series 1 4.2 FHC is fitted with the spin off type of oil filter. I have read on other sites and in magazines that whilst these filters fit, they may not have the capacity to circulate and filter the required amount of oil per minute. My system also appears to have developed a leak around the seal...

Mislead the public? TV? Surely not On Wheeler Dealers the person they "buy" the classic off is one of the crew, as is the person they sell it to. On Homes Under The hammer and other such programmes we are led to believe that new kitchens bathrooms central heating can all be done for ?5,000 - it can'...

So were do you stand Channel 5? Or is it just e...

Christopher: Thanks for both replys. I am now certain the noise is from the dash. Removing it now may mean driving down to silverstone from N Wales with dashbord on my lap, so not an option!

Will tackle this next week.

Thanks again.

Christpher: many thanks for speedy response. I will try this today. The speedo is "lazy" it over-reads by about 20% and is often showing 30 MPH for a few seconds even when at standstill. Someone mentioned lubricating the cable, how would this be done? If it is speedo cable will leave for now as I in...

noise from front end

I have a series 1 FHC and it has developed a noise from the front right corner when on the move. It is like something is catching at start off then as speed builds up it becomes constant. Breaking does not stop it. I have removed the wheels and cannot replicate it by rotating the wheel the bearings ...
