Have you had any rattling from the clutch/gearbox area in recent weeks? It could well be a shattered clutch plate but that doesn't explain why the starter won't turn the engine. On several occasions over the past I have seen Pinto engined cars, mainly 1.6's though, have their flywheel bolts come loo...
I think a lot of people use the MK3 indicators and mount them on the ends of the plastic moulding on the front valance. If you cut the ends off this moulding there is an opening that they are easy to fit into. Personally, I would be putting the Mk3 bumpers back on the MK3 and the MK2 bumpers back on...
Hi again, I found the second workshop used, in a workshop on a farm near Marlow (the cross in the centre of the screen). https://i.postimg.cc/ZKHjc63T/WD.png Search for "Wheeler Dealers" in Wikimapia where you can zoom in further to see the exact location. Andrew. Yes, it's at Hurley whic...
Who's got enough time on their hands that they feel the need to complain about this stuff? In the main it is people who are employed in non productive roles, often jobs which did not even exist years ago, and are desperate to prove their worth and career existence. After all if they didn't do such ...
AS some of you jested earlier, I wish I could be Prime Minister. The snowflakes and lefties would soon be tweetering that I was a Fascist Dictator and they would be right with what I would sort out in this country. The tweetering and other socialist media would soon be shut down as it frankly is bec...
Just seen in the local news that Edd is turning on the lights in Marlow, which is a small town a couple of miles from where I am. I think the early shows were filmed around Marlow as I recognised a lot of the roads they drove the cars on.

That's the irony of it. Brewer clearly believes that he's the star of the show, perhaps he resented Edd being more popular than him.
MB ruined the show imo, and Edd made the right decsion to move on.
Taking a block out to 2.1 can be expensive as it cant usually be overbored that much in a single pass and there is almost no benefit to be gained for all that extra cost. I looked into it seriously when I had a Pinto and opted to take mine out to the maximum bore size that could be achieved with a ...
Nice job there Paul and great support for Dan . It must be a garage job now to sort Dan’s Engine or a new engine ? Cost I have not got a clue , but brain just doing a thought and it might be madness could Dan go down the 2.1 road with his engine ? Don't forget that this car is a 2.0GL Automatic. He...

I have one which Steve kindly passed to me yes.
Makes hell of a difference on a Pinto. Gives the coil the correct time to develop the right charge for the spark.
On looking at Danny's engine, first we checked all the outside pulleys and the alternator were bolted tight - they were. Then, as the rocker cover was already off just checked that none of the adjuster locknuts were loose. Refitted rocker cover then removed plugs - these were so tight they felt like...
I recently helped one of the Surrey club members with her one owner, 60,000 miles 2.0 Laser that was giving the same symptoms as you describe - twitchy rev counter and stalling at junctions. I fitted some new points and a condenser then set the points up with a dwell meter. Feeler guages rarely are ...

This one was restored by Steve Moore (Elliecharlie) about 4 years ago. I saw it a couple of years ago and it is a lovely car except, as the advertiser says, for the cloth on the seats.
Oh dear, yeah definitely get that rocker cover off and check the valves and the followers. Definitely sounds like something relating to that, i'd also adjust those valve clearances while you're at it as it shouldn't sound that tappety, i know this from my own experiences. Is your car a 1.6 or a 2.0...
Hi hopefully someone may know who has this car cardinal red 2.0s a382 KWW I owned this car from about 1986 until around 4 years ago. I GAVE it to a guy (Paul, trying to remember his surname in sedgefield) as he renovated classic cars, I said he could have it use it, but if he ever decided to sell i...
