No comment?

Well, you are the first to comment.

Could have given us a better title to go by!

It's Steve Baldwin's "Castrol" 1800ti.

Webster brakes - recognise them ?

Worry not, that is entirely standard for the Robin setup. Many tens of thousands made like it! Once the shoes are adjusted up and in use there is actually not that much movement at the cylinder. I wouldn't get too hung up on the copper brake pipes thing either. I appreciate that copper can work hard...

TI gearbox oil

Likewise between work and family it's a struggle to get anything done in the garage here. And I gather Crispy-one is a proper business with wearing of suits and not just telling people to bugger off with their problems. As and when, there will always be time for dicking about with old cars and chasi...

TI gearbox oil

Out of interest, has Sir Hughes got much to say on the MK1 box (referred to by the Nissan mob as the type "B" I believe?) in terms of competitive use, strength, pitfalls etc? There seems to be a way of modifying the gear stick to get a short throw on the MK1 also. Just requires the sourcing of a Nis...

SS1 Springs

That was quick!

Maybe I should start including some little packs of sweets. One of our long standing suppliers does that. Never fails to brighten my day, nom nom.

Now, get them fitted, chop chop.

You'll find a much younger version of me on a couple of episodes of Robot Wars.

petrol!

Probably a poor seal between cap and neck. There's not much area for the seal to press on at the best of times and the edge does distort.

Alternative cap sounds a good idea.

ScimFest autotest?

Did both in mine last year. Only issue was knackering the tyres on the auto test and having to go off for more before the sunday. That's my fault though for running the risk with what I knew to be low tyres, I just didn't anticipate they would go like they did! You don't HAVE to hammer it in the aut...

Webster brakes - recognise them ?

Plenty o' salt. So much so I once had an entirely whited out road before me with not a marking visible for love nor money. I point to that as my excuse for failing that driving test. The Kitten handbrake is a truly naff arrangement, which for anyone reading this who is unfamiliar, essentially the ca...

Manny's SS1 1600

I honestly think that the amp and coil may have been a red herring. Original coil on mine has never left it's bracket, and the only time I had issue with the amp was when there was a heater / coolant pipe resting ontop of it! Now if you'd only followed up on the suggestion on page 2 of water in your...

I refereed to it as your policy Chris as I'm now fairly certain you are on commission :lol: I looked at trust pilot - https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/autoaidbreakdown.co.uk As I say, being objective you can ignore a lot of the whinging from people who didn't get a policy arranged or had it cancelle...
