eBay hacked?

Thanks gtcse8 I am looking for something easier to get in and out of. I have a slipped disc and I want something along the lines of a Rover P5. Not many years ago they weren't worth a lot but now it's a different story.

eBay hacked?

Thanks for the replies, I can usually spot a scam and have reported a few dodgy ones. The problem I have at the moment is that I have to plough through dozens of these listings to try and find a genuine one. I once got a negative feed back for a pair of adjustable car ramps. They didn't make any whe...

eBay hacked?

Head scratcher.

well I never, I removed the air cleaner to get a better view of the ht leads and the fault cleared. I think what is happening is that the original air cleaner sits very close to the top of the distributor especially no 5 lead, somehow this is grounding the spark before it gets to the plug. I am goin...

No points, electronic module. I had a 3a Rapier, the only car I regret selling. I will try pulling each lead in turn, some how forgot to do that. Manual choke Phil

Head scratcher.

My SE5 has had a mysterious fault. When it starts it doesn't run on all cylinders for several minutes. I have done a cylinder compression test they are all within 5 psi of each other. valve clearances spot on. I have replaced the distributor cap rotor arm, spark plugs and the leads are almost new. I...

The chassis was in excellent condition it is a pity it has to be destroyed. Whoever bought the engine got a great unit fully converted for unleaded as well

Bond Equipe GT4S.

That is almost certainly the one I had. The insurance company paid out the full value it was insured for. It was also the price I had agreed to sell it to a mate for. I had probably under valued it. My mate wanted me to buy the remains and to do the work to bring it back to the condition before the ...

Bond Equipe GT4S.

Thanks for your comments David, I feel that sick at the moment, I can't face the prospect of working on the car again. I have thought about the salvage, there are a lot of very good parts on the car but again I don't fancy breaking it up. The big problem is the dash. I am sure they were made by Bond...

Bond Equipe GT4S.

This is probably the final update for the the Bond Equipe. The restoration was 98% complete and was sold. The completion was delayed whilst I was waiting for a man to fit a new cover on the webasto type sunroof. I had decided to get an expert to do it, this was because if I made a poor job it would ...

Re: Bond Equipe GT4S.

I think I have found why the PO gave up the restoration. He had done repairs to the windscreen frame but got the rake angle wrong. Even though I had trial fitted the passenger door, prior to painting it was a nightmare to get it to fit right. I will have to repaint the areas I have made alterations....

Re: no oil pressure.

After ages I finally fitted the new oil pump. I think I have found why it came loose. The small bolt that holds it to the bearing cap was too long. It was bottoming out and not holding the bracket tight. A shorter bolt cured the problem. I managed to fit the dizzy one tooth out, but when refitted it...
