Propshaft Query

It's a belt and brace then!😃

I've found an old photo of under the bonnet and it looks as though the angle of lean is correct, unless it's always been wrong? 😅

FEB444W Renovating my 6A after repurchasing

Just got the engine back in the car this morning by myself....really easy on one's own if you can move the car forward....just took it in gradual steps and all went well. Cross braces both in as well. But (why is there always a but?), I noticed the engine is canted back by a couple of degrees. I did...

Rear Wiper & Park Position?
