E10 is already here, look for it on the pumps...
The pumps have to say E10 before the deliveries arrive. Most haven't actually got it yet - ask the nice people at the counter next time you fill up :)

Re: E10 Fuel September 2021

All cars before 2011 is pure rubbish...

For example Ford confirm that my 1993 Transit is ok for it.

Its been in the US and AUS for many years, so while its new to us - its not new.

Re: 1275 midget camshaft identification

A lot of aftermarket ones are marked there - but not all.

Factory cam identification is by a series of rings/grooves along the shaft

Re: London in the 1920's and the 1930's in colour

I seem to recall that the biggest engine Ford Capri (3.0L V6) even had extra weights added in the Sills to improve handing; probably not anything they would consider these days. Whilst modern cars do tend to be designed to be as light as practical - they most definitely do still have weights added ...

Re: Cars For Sale bit

I’ve been here for many years and don’t recall any comments that were life changing. Maybe I wasn’t paying attention. I wonder if other forums take this stance. I can well believe that closing the section down was considered. We are so prim and proper here. :D back in the annals of time... I was a ...

Re: Rat look truck

My other favourite is "first to see will buy...." I have disproved that on multiple occasions... Other than the cab... how many parts are Morris Minor? Ferguson 35 bonnet, rear wings and headlights Chassis isn't Axles arn't Engine and gearbox arn't So how can this be claimed to be a morris minor?

Re: Self-Centering Steering

To gain the benefits of negative camber you do need to fit negative camber eye bolts which are currently not available off the shelf. GDF Garages/Minor Mania in Mill Hill had some on the shelf a few years ago though, and wern't advertising the fact... if its what you need it may well be worth a call

Re: Timing Cover Seal - Which Way?

What might be worth checking on the cover is that the bolt holes haven't become distorted and "pulled through" - i.e. making a lip that bottoms out before the gasket makes good contact
