MOT Online History check

I’ve found it can be very useful for various cars on eBay. Particularly for MX5’S with corrosion issues. Unless the number plate has been blanked out for some unknown/known reason. :lol:

Grabbing a list together of "watch out areas" please gents

Fuel hoses - genuine Cohline or Gates. There's a lot of fake stuff (or downright dangerous non-branded hose) floating around eBay. AJL sells the best stuff around.

I have square plugs fitted and they have been in for 3 years. I’ve been wanting to change the Bosch plugs on 404 for some considerable time.

Wanted SE6A Brake compensator

Mark Thanks once again for taking the time to reply whilst taking a well earned breather. I’m off to bed now to dream of who knows what’s next :roll: By the way the Italvolanti boss roll pins were set in too long as you suspected.

Fitting an Italvolanti steering wheel to a Reliant

Fitting an Italvolanti steering wheel to a Reliant
