I'll be shopping for one too, but I don't fancy having it on the visor. I'm thinking underside of the hood cover :?:
It sits on the top of the sun visor so text facing upwards. You pull the sun visor down to release and get to the hood latch. Hey ho you see the hood instructions.

GTC 404 MOT Emissions

Just looked at the read outs on GTC 404 MOT issued two days ago. CO 0.24 HC 217 off side and CO 0.32 HC 75 nearside. All marked as a pass. The other comment made during the emissions test and noted on the paperwork is - Engine Oil temperature check: “coolant pipes were hot.” Any suggestions or thoug...

My Se6a so far....

Hydocarbons are a measure of unburnt fuel. At excessive lean, like 0.2, lots of fuel is being thrown out, unburnt. Get the CO somewhere near right, 2.5 - 3.5 and it burns better. Therefore the hydocarbons reduce. It is a myth that you need as weak a mixture as possible. Just looked at the read outs...

Jim and Steve The gauge etc. appears fine. Earthed one connection - blue low level lamp lit up. Earthed the other connection and gauge gave full reading.

Bloody good glue if it can bond 0.08 mm to 0.08 mm as good as welding, which is a "Mechanical" joint rather than a "Bonded" joint :?
0.08mm hmmm 3 thousand of an inch that is thin. So just as thick as cigarette paper?

If joining alloy is a problem then why not use a structural adhesive that is cured with heat , as we do at work and the aircraft industry
What is this interesting product called?
Could possibly be useful for work.

Oaksey's S2000

So possibly start with low a mileage (less than 50000) full service history plus check MOT history etc?
Or a much greater and thorough detailed check?
