It has shown that many A&E visits could be avoided with a little thought.
although generally speaking by the time 'the drinks in , the wits out' especially on Friday & Saturday around 2300 onwards . . . . :shock:

I went to original spec oil but the noise from 'bottom-end' seemed a bit louder so after 100 miles decante dit into the 480 and re-filled with 20/50 ;-)

I know it's not 'correct' but given the miles I do each year (and this year even less) it's not worth pulling the engine :shock:

MOT exemption

The Ti is due at the end of May, so that'll mean I won't have to MOT it this year as it goes SORN in November. I'll get it done in March next year. I'm similar, but it means a trip direct to MoT station next year, I'd prefer a shake down so 'might' get it tested around end of summer, maybe, to avoi...

Hi Alan, It's a 1600, I believe? If so, assuming the oil level is correct, the tappets can take a while to refill if they're past the first flush of youth and not been run for a while. It might take until the engine has warmed a little before they quieten down (when the oil starts to thin). concur,...

SS1 1600 Brake pad wear indicator

No, completing the circuit makes the light come on. I agree when the LOOP touches earth pad warning comes on, ie the disc, but I'm sure I had odd results with handbrake warning light (I think) so I just used an old 'sensor' from worn pads plugged in and tucked away under the fuse box so that the lo...

SS1 1600 Brake pad wear indicator

but don't you need to bridge the connector to make the warning lights to work properly? (After thrown it in bin) for us in the UK (assumeyou are not?) it is a bit of a grey area with what warning lights should or should not come on with the ignition, even the low fluid level light SHOULD be part of ...

Small sports are easy, they just glue in place :wink: except removal of glue/sealant could have been a PITA ? :shock: never ever set anything 'in a safe place' :wink: not sure if an insurance company would pay up on that one? although screens are still available NEW, tinted were on six week lead, b...

Sabre Turbo racer: 'Light Sabre'

please don't take my comment as a complaint, only observation .. .. . i seem to remember reading about a 750 club 'car' that used the engine mounts from a Mini as 'suspension' and got away with it for the one or two seasons until they added a clause about 'xx inches travel' so yes I can see where th...

1600 speedo cable

Given it’s a Ford gearbox end with a BL speedo head it’s likely to have been a Reliant specification cable. There might be one from something else that will fit although I haven’t found what yet. For something like that I’d save the risk of having more bits in the garage that don’t fit and get one ...
