😀😃😄😄😆
Picked car up today , what a nice man Stafford is.
I think I’ve got a really nice Se6b , drove from Aylesbury nearly 79 miles faultless , car never missed a beat , steady 50mph for the first 30 odd miles, then pushed up to 60mph For about another 30 mph all along the M25 , then up to 70mph down the A2 .
Temp gauge was just above 75 degrees , oil pressure just over 50psi at 60mph.
Everything works , elec windows, MW /LW radio , fan on Both 2 speeds, fasten seat belt warning light , wipers, lights , indicators , oh there is a light under the bonnet even that works 😀

The “Add Files” button - find the picture, add it and wait for “Place Inline” to appear (you don’t have to use that function if it’s just a photo dump).

Repeat a few times :D

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

Well done :D

Temp gauge needs calibrating or you need a new thermostat :)

The temp crept between 75-90
Why would I need a new gauge or thermostat

it should sit at 90 Plus or minus a few (regulated by the thermostat or cooling fan as appropriate)
