Sounds to be tailor-made for working on our cars - where do you get 'em from? :D

You've just hit the nail on the head. This country needs a WRITTEN constitution, for everyone's sake.
Doesn't seem to be much point if, as now seems increasingly likely, we're to remain in the EU anyway.

I'm thinking to invest in a better charger for better battery condition a less stress if this happens again. I'm thinking something that cuts out once the battery is fully charged... any recommendations what to look for?
Have a look at the 'CTEK' range.

This thread has got me wondering if my toolkit is complete and, if not, what's missing?

Re: starting

"- Next time it does it take plugs out to see if they are flooded or the dash pot off to see if the carb is full of fuel." Before you go to that sort of trouble, get yourself round to the back of the car and have a sniff near the exhaust pipe. You'll soon know if flooding is the problem, then take t...

Re: A bit cheeky

IMHO Charles Ware cars are much overpriced, although I am sure the quality is excellent. But, presumably, they still find buyers for them. Do those buyers then join the OC and/or come on here, I wonder. Might be instructive to invite feedback/opinions from any that do, particularly as to whether or...

I used to maintain the trunnions on my Lotus Elan with EP90 applied from a Wanner grease gun. It worked well with no issues arising.

Re: A new home for Max the Minor

For everyday use though, when the Polo gives up, I've often considered an Austin Maxi to be a sound choice. Often derided when in 1500 format but what do you think? I had a 1750 Maxi for a couple of years in the early seventies and it was a car that couldn't be faulted. Reliable, roomy, comfortable...
