Help! Drop links.

I did a rough search and it looks like that whilst the original threads are M12 but the E39 ones are M10. I think Helicoils can be used.

Festival of the Unexceptional

I see a previous winner was a Nissan Cherry Europe. I'm amazed that any still exist considering they were built in Italy by Alfa Romeo (i.e. Fiat) using recycled Russian steel. If ever a car was destined NOT to survive, that would be it. Also known as the Alfa Romeo Arna IIRC. Had a look on Wikiped...

Those don't look like Mondeo ones to me - look like standard Scimitar (SE5-SE6)?

Webster brakes - recognise them ?

They appear to be the same heritage as SE5-6 rear brakes with a sliding cylinder? In which case they have solid pipes. Firstly, they should only ever move a minute amount but that’s not an issue with the steel (or kunifer) lines which can take it :w

Road Tax Help

You need to change the taxation class from PLG to "Historic Vehicle" which I think is a case of filling out the relevant section of the V5C, and handing it in at the Post Office: https://www.gov.uk/historic-vehicles/apply-for-vehicle-tax-exemption They should be able to give you a free tax disc, sen...

Slight misfire from one exhaust

Seems to be something some cars suffer with - a slight "is it?" missfire from one bank. Valve clearances OK? Dizzy cap? There's some questionable ignition parts floating around nowadays, sadly - the joys of making parts from 50 year old tooling and getting small batches made by the lowest (only) bid...

petrol!

That looks like a Mocal one to me - like https://www.merlinmotorsport.co.uk/p/flush-fitting-fuel-cap-95mm-diameter-lockable-cap3s - measure to be sure as they come in different sizes. Question is if the fuel has come through the seal on the outside or through the locking section (by guess is the lat...

High resistance at the bottom of the tank, low at the top.
