Re: Accumulator

Re: Rocker arm modification?

Thankyou gents. Yes,I am aiming for a couple of mm's of extra lift. Correct Stroker,adding the extra metal to the tip won't assist in my intentions,I can see that now,because of the 0.35/0.40mm clearance. Stroker,I did see your method in full on Capripower.

Late cars don't survive after being in flood water. Classic cars minus ecu's tend to survive after fresh oil

Re: Grief over climate change

I remind people that car manufacturing has a big carbon footprint, probably a bit more for electric cars. Anyone who changes their car every few years or scraps a vehicle just because its got a couple of dents or a bit or rust they cant be arsed to sort out is causing much more global warming than ...

Re: 1983 Cabaret

:D the 1.6 pinto? I'm sure there's better. Although it's not bad for 72bhp compared to my 2 litre Cortina. The 1.6 does feel it on an incline.
