Scimitar values in 2020

I defy anyone to find an hpe that hasn't gone to dust unless it has been stored for life!.....the normal beta shapes were bad, but the hpe......wow! Even in dry africa, mine only lasted two years! Still, it did steer me into buying the scimitar when I returned to Britain......so not all bad eh 🤔

Valve spring compressor nissan ET / DET

A little tip that I was taught by my racing mentor, Ralph Seymour......put a piece of wood or hard plastic between the compressor and the valve head to prevent scratches. Especially relevant on reassembly on nicely polished and ported internals.

MOT or not to MOT?

We have had this discussion before and I got the definitive answer from my friendly dvsa centre where I take the horse lorry. If a car fails it's mot, it is then deemed illegal to drive. Some fails mean the car can be driven somewhere else to be fixed and then returned or taken to another garage for...

rating of a rear hatch strut

Easy enough to use the sgs ones with the supplied metal ends....just run the cables up inside the rear sides, couple of cable clips at top and connect direct to screen terminals. I've actually found that the screen cleared quicker, so perhaps the original setup had electrical resistance in the struts?

Not sure I know whether the rebel is suggesting that BMW drivers are ...(fill in your appropriate expletive) or whether it would get nicked in a few minutes. Either way, he's got a point! 😁😁

Scimitar values in 2020

I must admit to driving classics all my life as well. In 1968, my first car purchase was an Austin Ulster, even though I didn't know what model when I bought her! Living in the middle east in the 70s, secondhand cars were dirt cheap, so I went through a succession of 60s American muscle cars. I've r...

Interesting that they say it is mot exempt. My understanding of the exemption may be different to theirs. Taken from dvla website:- Vehicles that do not need an MOT You do not need to get an MOT if: the vehicle was built or first registered more than 40 years ago no ‘substantial changes’ have been m...

I'm in the same boat as you Phil with my emails, got farm ones, horse selling ones, motorbike ones etc. etc. Only difference is that I've never had a useful Ebay money off coupon sent. 😥😥😥
