I was surprised how easily it sheared, I wasn't using a big spanner.
Likewise, only a small spanner. Just couldn't cope with my incessant dizzy adjustments and removals.

Glad you got it sorted.

Non starting TI

It uses the v-shaped alternator belt). The pulley itself can be bolted on any old way (well, up to 6...

and shearing off the distributor bolt that fixes it to the head
Yep, I did that too last year. Think I also sheared the other adjustment bolt at one point. Only so much they can take I suppose. :)

Do you know what fixed it?

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

A DeLorean at dusk. In the car park at a Divine Comedy gig at Inchyra near Perth last night.

Stirling and District Classic Car Show 2019

Looks like it's on the road now. Yes Terry, I did find a photo of it a few years back - an online Miura register, if I remember correctly. It was converted to the later, more desirable SV guise. I actually got to know the owner in the eighties. A real Lamborghini nut, but one without the resources ...

Stirling and District Classic Car Show 2019

Looks like a great day. I’d have liked to have come along to this show but timing wasn’t good. Is the club planning on attending any other Scottish shows this year? As an aside, I used to visit Bridge of Allan fairly regularly in the late seventies/early eighties when my grandad lived there. And aro...

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

Easy seeing there’s a Bentley Driver’s Club event up North somewhere this weekend. Saw about 5 beauties this morning on the Kingsway in Dundee. Only managed to photo two.

pop-up headlights NOW INCLUDING HIDDEN HEADLIGHTS

Your guess is as good as mine as to what these headlights do. But it's a rare beast - and one I remember seeing at the Glasgow motor show at the Kelvin Hall about 40 years ago. argyll-car.jpg https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/47PgZXqnbJN0HCyssW49p4v/the-argyll-turbo-a-classic-supercar-from-t...
