Just passed on the info to the chap who sold it to the owner - he's very surprised as the owner loved that coop...
Ricky forgive my memory, was it you who had the sprinty with the black roof?
No, that wasn’t me...I had a pretty standard red one, the only thing I did to it was to replace the black fabric seats with red leather seats from a similar one (would have been mainly spotted down Easter Road/Leith way). Was not in the best nick when I eventually parted company with it...the guy I did sell it to hoped to return it to its former glory...but not sure if he managed to.
Cheers. I’ve driven the car 20 mins back to the house tonight. Leaked coolant but temps ok. I could see sort of where the leak was coming from but too many hoses in the way to get my hands to. Booked in local garage tomorrow:)
bayliss,Be careful not to add too much oil because it will appear on the semi-axle on the side of the leakage box.It happened to me.I did it.I transfer red it lightly and there was a problem of dripping oil.Only one mechanic confessed and asked if I did not change the oil.There were a few who claimed that the simering-seal was damaged on the semi-axle.It's such my attention to pay attention to the amount of oil that we pour into the box-fill. Greetings
Unfortunately not the second part as my Firefox bowser under Windows 7 gets "stuck" refreshing the Forum Rules page. I've just checked the Step 3 page, but that would only apply for new members I thought, as my login and other details appear to still be active and have not changed. Please let me know if that is not the case.
I've just rejoined after a long absence. Paid just a moment ago. If I could get my (new?) membership number asap that would be very welcome for insurance purposes getting my cars back on the road. TIA, Tim
Hi Tim and welcome back to the club. Did you complete both steps in the renewal process? i.e. 1. Make payment, 2. Complete registration/membership form
Sorry...didn’t realise it had been on before...not been on here for a while...
That sprinty's not moved in a while
It didn’t look like it had. Although the word on the bonnet had been wiped off...there was a similar picture drawn into the dust on the windscreen...and the front passenger side tyre was looking a bit flat. Apart from that it looked in pretty good condition body/interior wise. What a waste...I miss mine
I went to check it out, unfortunately my new discovery is not the place either. It's the fuse box housing. So I'm standing still. You wrote "vertically" or upwards. Maybe this photo hides the place where the "U" end is to come in? Can some of your colleagues insert a photo of your spring-?
Yes, the red arrow is pointing at the bracket the end of the pin sits in.
And there was me thinking you were going to be adding a turbo to this
me going turbo way.... haha never
PS.. when I´m thinking about purchasing dead 20VT is only about to make 2.4 VIS atmo conversion with some standart tweaks (head, mild cams, raised compression etc..) for daily use.. 200-220 bhp with loads of linear torque from 2.4 with great sound...
