Re: New MOT exemption

I have been thinking about this and I think I will still take my daily driver for MoT every 12 months for a health check in case I have missed something as I do about 12,000 miles per year in her.

Re: MMOC National Rally 2017

Hi all, Just to be clear, you are all MORE than welcome to turn up on the day. It's £15 per car but if you are camping that's extra of course. Hopefully all from the south who wanted the rally in the south will show up in force to prove that it's worthwhile having the rally this far south. Oh and th...

Re: 948 - poor performance

Well, I checked the timing advance with a tachostrobe and guess what? No advance at all when going up to 3000 rpm. Turns out the bob weights were seized and also the vacuum advance unit was faulty. So, I rebuilt the 948 distributor with working bob weights and working vacuum unit, set it statically ...
