Re: Car in S.Wales

I went to have a look last week and it was rusting everywhere. Who in their right mind would pay that kind of money?

Be interesting to see if the sale goes through.

I left a message for the vendor this morning. See if he comes back to me.

I'm looking for an M30B35 engine loom, preferably from a highline E24 but I'm open to what's available as I'll need to modify it either way. Must be from a B35 car though as it needs to be motronic 1.3
I've got one here. PM me.

Interesting that the seller claims that the original wheels are style 5's, I would have thought they would be TRX :-?
There was a metric wheel and tyre(tire) in the boot(trunk) and photo #94 shows the full set of metrics.

These are what you need to remove the pins from any plug.

...the inserts are fitted to the rubbers prior to screen fitting.
I was just wondering if anyone could offer some advice on fitting them to screens that haven’t been removed.

The inserts are impossible to fit with the screen in-situ. Lots of my posts on this subject.

Ron, I believe they are still available new
Tried that. Problem is the part # is the same for all years and you get the later version with the flat sockets.

Hi Ron,I have one of these Chargers and it says before you connect it to the Battery it should be turned on. I have a permanent connection to the Battery so i can just plug it straight into the Charger.
How long have you had it connected Ronnie?

Re: CTEK battery charger.

Thanks for the reply Chris. Have you left the charger connected and switched on all the time? I had one connected to a car in my garage which was fine for a couple of years but when I tried starting it about a month ago, the battery was flat. So I've now had 3 units that have played up.

"Banana" inlet manifold.

Had a query from a friend. Will the "banana" inlet manifolds from an early Jetronic engine fit a later head and is there any benefit from doing this powerwise?
