Oil pressure

Welcome to the forum! :D

Yes, I'd agree with James, if you've replaced the timing wheel with a steel one, it will be noticeably noisier, especially when new. But look on it as reassurance that it's not going to break again! :)

New member in South Wales

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the car! :D The alloy plate in your photo is the "Body Number plate" - the number on the plate is probably similar to (but maybe not exactly the same as) your chassis number (bearing in mind that Se6-on chassis numbers started at 1001). As yours is quite a...

Fuel pipe fittings?

Travelling tools & Spares

Of course! I would always have recovery cover, because there are some things that are essentially unfixable in *any* car (like the time I burned a valve in my mk2 Escort), but there's a much better chance that you won't need it with an old car.

Travelling tools & Spares

I think a lot comes down to your personality - some people like to be prepared for anything, some people don't, and I think you'll never change people's personality by reasoning :) Another point worth considering, in my own case anyway, is that I have driven a great many miles over the last forty-od...

Fuel pipe fittings?

You shouldn't really use standard jubilee clips with fuel hose, they don't work well at that size. Much better are the clips designed for the job, either in ordinary steel or, better still, stainless. See here for ethanol-proof hose and stainless clips :)

Travelling tools & Spares

Worth keeping an eye out for special offers - a long time ago, I got a toolkit from Argos for IIRC £15.95, and it has a useful selection of tools - a set of 1/2 in drive sockets/ratchet, combination spanners, 4x screwdrivers, handle and bits, pliers, hammer, etc. Ok, not exactly Snap-On quality, obv...

Yes, I sealed my gutters in situ the same way (they did leak before, but not after). I haven't had to remove the rivets, they may be peel rivets, to spread the load better?
