Ah I heard that nitty gritty and good egg article on the news as well... it's funny though, they are two comments I predominantly hear(d) on TV (though not anymore) from the police/government...I find that rather amusing...

they're designed to be fitted in front of the rad as well so you got plenty of room and an easy install job.. rswww.com do cheap thermo switches, just thermo glue a 100 degree one to the rad and wire it through the fan jobs a good one...I'd suggest having a secondary manual over ride switch though j...

Re: Taxing a car without the reminder?

one thing, if the MOT runs out within a week or so of the tax needing renewing they won't do it for you as I've found, not sure if that's just the local PO policy or whether it's a countrywide thing but worth noting, else you waste your tiem going down there just to be turned away!

Re: faulty Engine update

Well it lasted 162 miles before it sprang a hole in the block. Eventually I got them to say they'd fix that for me, unfortunately for them in writing and more than once...this is an engine that was rebuilt and had done 'one race'....I've never had a hole appear in any of my pintos but there we are.....
