MOT changes

I think I'm jumping the gun. My MOT runs out on Tuesday, so I have both tax & MOT at the moment. So when I try to re-tax the car (1968) it checks the MOT and finds a current one and I don't get asked about VHI, I think I need to try again on Wednesday.

The Doctors Coupe - SRE 353G

Rather a nice place behind that wheel! Never fathomed why the dials and radio were oddly placed? I looked at a few photos of dashboards on Matt Greenlys website and all coupes are the opposite way round with the gauges on top & the radio underneath. I guess it's been the opposite way round for a lo...

LRP 335E Sprint Coupe

Ha!

Don't get carried away with it then, I know what you're like, you'll have the suspension off to be shot blast & powder coated before you enter an event!

The Doctors Coupe - SRE 353G

I replaced the water pump last Saturday, so it's coolant continent again. I replaced some of the hoses at the same time, I've still got to do the heater hoses, but I only put water in initially to check for leaks, so I'll have to drain the system & re-fill with anti-freeze anyway. I'd been looking a...

You have quite a few more galloping ponies under the bonnet though, and all the body work!

That's a big difference, easier than an engine swap too.

Lets say TBC, but now the car runs & drives, I need to get the bits of body bolted on and get it out there as soon as I can.

What engine ended up in your 5a to replace the Skyline straight 6? It's putting out plenty of numbers!

551 A race oddity

My engine is untouched internally, I replaced the crank due to worn thrust bearing faces, the crank was re-ground with new big-end & main shells, but that’s all. It has got vernier pulleys on the cams, to get the timing spot on, but the Nissan machining seems to be very accurate anyway, so I’m not s...

The Racy Red Bakery Truck.

If you are stuck for a clutch alignment tool in the future, you can use a piece of dowl (valve grinding sticks work) or a long bolt that will pass through the clutch plate in to the spigot bearing. Choose something that is just undersize from the spigot bearing, then wrap electrical tape around the ...
