Re: 2019 Restoration Show Centrepiece Charity Cabriolet

Are we looking to complete all these jobs over the weekend? If we failed to complete any of the jobs, having started them, is that a problem? I was looking at buying one of those trailing arm bush removal/installation tools because I have 2 sets to do myself - if it would be useful for this job too,...

Re: What are your Plans and Projects for 2019 ??

Just fitted a replacement oe tape/radio unit and new front speakers (Christmas present) to my 216 GSi. Nice to have my music back. It has, however, demonstrated that I also need to replace the rear speakers too. I also now have a full set of 4, pretty much brand new looking, wheel trims to put on fo...

Re: Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show, with Discovery 22-24 March 2019

I'll offer up my K16 engine again for the head gasket and oil rail pre-emptive strike. If we could get one of our mechanical experts on-board and get the work filmed as well we could then put it up on youtube and a link from the web-site for future reference. I can also bring along an old D16 engine...

Looking to borrow a Bearing Press

Does anyone not too distant from Northampton have a bearing press I could borrow/use for a short time please. Happy to pay a reasonable fee. I need to change the rear wheel bearings on my daily Ford Focus. Can bring drums and bearings to the press if it would be better. Thank you, Duncan.

Re: 216 Fuel Pump

An overheating pump could well cause the fuse to blow. I presume the fuel actually acts as a lubricant for the moving parts of the pump, so it may have been labouring if the fuel was too low to give a good flow. Or maybe there's sludge, concentrated due to low fuel, and it was struggling to pull it ...

Re: 216 Fuel Pump

If it's a Honda engine, you could check that fuse #14 hasn't blown (driver's side of dashboard). When my fuel pump gave up it kept blowing fuse #14. You should be able to test the electrical side of things with the pump in situ - I believe there have been posts about how to do this previously. To ch...
