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.

Re: Steering Rack

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...

Re: Don't Dwell On It?

Oh dear! I seem to have inadvertently opened something of a can of worms here. Re the current (no pun intended - honest!) mild spat/constructive disagreement on the subject, a little Google research revealed the following which, to my reading at least, appears to confirm geoberni's view:- https://ww...

Don't Dwell On It?

In the far reaches of my personal man-cave, among the long-since replaced spark plugs that 'seem to be still OK so may come in useful one day as a spare' (or is that just me?) and sundry ignition leads, dizzy arms etc, is a dwell-meter with which I used to fine-tune the ignition of my long-departed ...
