Bogging at 4000 rpm

I don't believe it :bh
The car is running beautifully, a joy to drive etc.
But the fuel pump has started making a high pitched wining noise.
Does this mean that the car will imminently stop running beautifully, a joy to drive etc ?
Or could it just be remains of crap in the system ... please.

Road wheel centre hub

Isaydingdong do just about any sticker you can think of, and with a domed plastic finish if you want.
In spite of their silly name their quality and service are excellent.

Any good auto electricians on here?

I have an electronic flasher unit on mine, with separate warning lights and hazard flashers facility.
It must be easy because I did it, but it was a long time ago ...
I think I even had a piece in Slice about it.

Alternative Coupé register ;-)

Right, we are online with .png files of the list sorted by 1/ chassis number and 2/ registration number.
I'll see if I can improve quality in due course ...

Exhaust manifold fittings

I'm not a potential customer :mrgreen: but from recent experience with a 2,8 ( which has less screws to fit :wink: ) I would say definitely stainless cap bolts.

Save an Se6(b) or too late?

Scimitars are usually repairable but apart from the vandalism, why is it a non-runner?

Superb as ever, Victor.
You have obviously created some space behind the centre console if you can get a radio in there!

Wheel quiz

Amazing.
I have to admit I don't know what the fifth wheel is, but I do know the last one 8)
Strange the resemblance between Alpina wheels and Middlebridge ...

And yes, there was an Alfa Montreal at this month's meeting :shock:
Class!

At today's monthly classic meeting I noticed there was an amazing variety of wheels on display.
See how many you can identify - along with the cars of course :mrgreen:
