MOT changes

My MOT ran out on the 22nd, so I tried to register VHI again today now it's expired, all easy no problems on the DVLA website as others have said. I think I failed before as it still had a current MOT. I have insurance, it was previously taxed to April 2019. Now VHI registered & still taxed until Ap...

551 A race oddity

No fuel smell, no petrol patch or wet pipes, so I just need to swap in the section of fuel pipe.

551 A race oddity

The SS1 has been fuel tight at the rear since I put fuel in the tank. When I got it back from the rolling road, there was a little drip under the pumps / pump pre-filters. I nipped up a jubilee clip. Yesterday, I went in the garage & there was a smell of petrol, there was a small fuel patch under th...

EFI’s fleet

Well, you seem to have narrowed it down to a Ford engine at least!

Is it to be a road or track car?

'74 SE5a rolling resto

Just a bellhousing required next then. There was an Essex to T5 bellhousing on ebay a few weeks ago that turbster was keeping an eye on. Maybe worth saving an ebay search for one.

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...

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!
