FREE SE5a radiator and modern electric fan

I have just removed my car's original radiator to make way for a new alloy one and the old thing is now homeless. It probably needs a recore but is intact and might be useful to somebody. I've also replaced the electric fan so the old one (not the original but a modern one) is going too. Free to any...

Fibre timing gear

Hello everyone, I'm trying to figure out from pile of receipts whether my car has had its fibre timing gear replaced. There is a receipt for 'fibre gear £87.50' from 1993. Were people already upgrading them to steel back then or is it possible that the origin was replaced with another fibre timing g...

Wiki access

Oh that's great. Thank you. No I just wanted to browse through the files and try to absorb as much information as I can in case something should need fixing in the future.

Hi everyone,

Thanks,

Ebay SE5a

Ok thank you. Do you know anything about the car? The registration is not visible in the photos so I can't check its MOT history. Looks nice, but pictures can hide a lot.

Real MPG figures

I was considering doing a conversion on my Mercedes but a w123 specialist told me it would eventually kill the engine, AND, in Germany LPG is about to lose its subsidy and will become more expensive to run a car on than petrol. So perhaps the days of LPG are soon to be over. .. Cheap to run would be...

Real MPG figures
