That's only the engine - he's flagged some evidence of overheating so I will need water pump, hoses, thermostat and possibly rad too.
So can any of you help me to source these or point to where the problems are likely to arise? I'm doing some googling - belts, rings, etc seem to be available. I'll update this post with my own research of costs as I go, in case it might help others, but input is welcome!
My doors caused me all sorts of problems when its below freezing. In the past ive regularly been sat in my work car park having opened the door and then not been able to close it again due to the locking mechanism. I found silicone spray at the beginning of winter used to help a lot. Thats assuming yours was a similar issue.
I would presume that it adds fairly substantially to the structural rigidity of the car. It could be modified but consideration of full reinstatement of structural integrity taken out would be needed - the cage would help but works in a different way.
I too assumed this but can't for the life of me see how? It's box section and runs directly across the car? It doesn't look like any form of bracing I've seen anywhere else... There are no clear mounting points, it's the 'wrong' shape and it doesn't do the whole 'triangles' thing...
Most Lancias and Fiats that I can think of (early 70's to 80's) had a front and rear jacking point which was a square shaped "slot" welded to the sill, and in later years 80's onwards the location is similar but you just use a pad across the seam in the sills (like on the Coupe) so for these car lifts that fit under the sills either side, I would expect to use some suitable pads. The Quickjack that I linked to has some "pinch weld" blocks but they don't come as standard, and are a ridiculous £80 for a set of 4. When I got first got my Coupe over 20 years ago, I picked up a block of wood and cut a groove in it, as per the user handbook. I'd do the same thing if I got one of these lifting/tilting ramps, make up 4 suitable blocks (or cut a groove in the blocks that are supplied with the Quickjack for example)
Does anybody have experience/recommendation in relation to remap chips e.g Racechip, Celtic Tuning, Quantum etc.
My wife has a 2016 Tucson 1.7 Crdi with 114bhp and I would like to use it to tow the caravan in 2020. I currently use my Hyundai i40 which has circa 140bhp, so a remap of the Tucson to around 140bhp would be sufficient for my needs.
Prices vary (£199 to £450+) as do sellers claims (139bhp to 180bhp). Reviews are also varied. I'm not looking to rag the life out of the engine. It should be good for 140bhp as Hyundai already do the Tuscon 1.7crdi with 141bhp.
I removed the negative from the battery before I left it for storage yesterday. However, just came to think of it... might this cause any problem with keys and codes etc? I have a "master" key code card.
I swapped the battery 3 months ago as the old one had discharged (I still have it). The central locking mechanism and display still worked with the old battery, then I swapped to the new one and maybe had the car without a battery for half an hour or so. It started perfectly without issues.
Do you have any ideas? Maybe I should go connect the negative again? It will be like that until.... march something.
I got an email from René (reben) about Viva Italia in Assen (NL) in 2020. It's moved back to "Pinkster" Monday (1st Monday in June) the same as in 2015 (in later years it was earlier, in April). Seeing as that is a holiday weekend in NL, it might be worth booking accommodation a little earlier this year?
Same successful formula as before, but do note that it is on a Monday, the week after the UK Spring Bank Holiday on 25 May. René expects to organise a group meal the night before, in or around Assen. See you there!

The usual , help required please. I've never seen any threads on here regarding graphic design (certainly you won't have done from me for reasons of my utter incompetence in this field) but this place can still surprise me so I'm asking here.
MicroWishy is after a graphics tablet from Santa, she loves drawing and also making computerised animations and is after a tablet for this purpose. This is going to be her main present so budget is about £200. It will be mainly connected to our main PC which has twin 27" monitors (so hadn't considered versions with screens) but if there's something that could also be used in her room with her android tablet as a screen then that wouldn't hurt although this isn't the main priority. Reading up gives options such as these below.
Question 1 would be, does anyone know what they're talking about form experience in this field (I exclude myself from anything artistic)?
Question 2, is it worth having a screen on the tablet itself? I guess this boils down to the budget showing options for Wacom (known brand to me) without screen being a similar price to an unknown brand with a screen. In other words a choice betwen perceived quality (Wacom) and features (XP-PEN with screen). Obviously if I look at screened Wacom products then the budget goes up....
Questions 3, if the answer to question 2 is that quality wins, is it worth upping the budget to inlcude the medium version of the Wacom pro?
The idle on my car has always be unperfect. I replaced the dump valve few days ago and it seemed to be a bit better (no more idle bouncing, at least that's what I thought). I always had the exhaust popping here and there at idle even after fixing injectors or valve clearance.
Today I tried to adjust the idle screw to match the new dymp valve. Sadly when fully closed, the engine doesn't stall, but it makes the exhaust popping and the idle bouncing more noticeable, more audible and idle bouncing too.
