That's strange, I've tried it on my desktop and Samsung tablet and it plays perfectly on both.

Re: Oil pressure switch

Hi Andrew. Yes I guess it is. And presumably is electrically operated? My car is a 1972 Kent engine GT so probably before the thread change. Thanks for your help. :D Give Martin at Caprigear a call on 01507 343148. He should be able to supply the part and you can guarantee that it will be the corre...

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

These cars are all well and good on the private track they use, but in reality around London the first girl wanted the BMW for, I wonder how long she will keep it for with the insurance, running and servicing costs :spank: I thought the same last week when the girl chose the Healey Sprite. Yes, it'...

Re: Oil pressure switch

Hi,
Welcome to the forum.
For spares, I tend to use Caprigear, Capri Club International, Tickover and Burton Power.
There is a very useful thread with loads of other suppliers listed:

I agree with that. Sadly, the Dave website doesn't reveal which cars are going to be featured in each episode, which is a shame.
As you say, there's not much else on the other channels at that time.

Nice pics Andrew (other thread too) but you have to wonder what the MOT man thinks when that Corolla turns up! Thanks Peter. When the MOT man has stopped laughing, I imagine that he'd pass it straight away. I know I wouldn't want to upset the driver whilst staring down the barrel of those guns! And...

Unfortunatley, Autumn/Winter isn't the best time to be selling a classic car. I'd leave it to the spring and try again then.

Good luck with the sale.

Re: Haynes Breakfast Meet September 2018 (Ford)

A fine selection of photos Andrew. That Corsair convertible must be rare; Crayford? The Capri's look superb but good to see a Fiesta, Orion and Sierra's too. Hi Nige, Thanks for you rcomments. Yes, I'm pretty sure that the Corsair was a Crayford. I'm not sure how many they converted, but I doubt th...
