Is there really any point in posting issues when somebody tells me to check the tyre pressure.
I think it is known as humour. Doesn't hurt to have a giggle once in a while.

inlet manifold leak causing weak mixture ?
Yes very likely. I can hear this car whistling on the overrun, yet the brake cleaner test passes! Still investigating.

One bank warmer than other

I’ve no idea why tyre pressures can affect exhaust temperatures either. I can only assume Darryl has been on the sauce. Could well be mixture is unbalanced across both banks - or a misfire on the right hand bank? I have a car in at the moment where the exhaust gas is cooler on one bank. The mixture...

Vinegar used to flush cooling system

The fan needs to be set just above the temperature at which the thermostat opens, most Scimitar fans are set at just over 90C. That having been said, one of my bikes opens at 85C but the fan comes on at 105C with overheat warning at 115C.

SS1 1800 Ti No Sparks

I’ve got a GM 6.5TD in the motorhome which has partial electronic control of the diesel pump with “an” optical sensor inside it (and I’ve had a strange cutting out issue). Just wondered if it might be the same one as I suspect diesel timing needs to be pretty good. A sillyscope would show up issues...

Driving test reality check

The biggest myth with driving instruction is that you are taught to "pass the test" rather than being taught to drive correctly. Watch any street corner with traffic turning... Apart from professional and blue light drivers (not all sadly) the majority seem to think that crossed hands is acceptable ...

That 6b looks about as far removed from a project as it is possible to get - and I now have a space in my garage :roll: . Fortunately it is far away (or is it just small?) but I have found myself looking up flight details.... :w
It may be possible to get someone to deliver it for you. :W :W

Se6 passenger door possibly full bodyshell

I have a 6a that is being taken apart. Not sure of transport cost but tends to be around £2 per mile, lower for a return load.

I came to the car this morning to find that I needed to add 600 ml of new coolant with no evidence of leaks anywhere.
Perfectly normal after coolant work Stu and not a fault. You should find that is is stable now.

Chassis prep

Remove the rust mechanically, prep and paint with epoxy primer and if you wish, a topcoat of your choice.

Axle pinion nut too tight or to slack?

Is your seal seated correctly? It should have taken some effort to release the nut and a reasonable torque to realign.

An eBay seller to avoid!

The problem with mail order batteries is that it is so expensive to return them. Then when you do, they will say that it has been abused. I have a Tayna Newmax in the Scorpio that failed after 12 months and I had considered returning it... For a few minutes. In the end I replaced it and will keep th...

SE6A Windscreen replacement.

You could ask them to order a club screen. They may ask for a "betterment" fee but would be worth it. Discuss that with the insurance company, the windsreen fitters are likely to be uninterested.
