    Change of Tyre size ?

    I've just found a set of original TC wire wheels that I am going to use on my 68 SC. I'm currently running a set of 185s on my steel rims but saw a 1960s Peugoet (is that how its spelt?) with 165 Michellins and it looked really good. Where 165's fitted to both steel and wire wheels on the 2000?

    Possible head off

    Found we went to tight on two valves when we rebuilt my engine a few years ago. Made up these spacers specifically for the job but I assume nuts would also work. The engine now runs with a little bit of tappet noise but thats better than the alternative.

    Thanks for following up. The online forum here in Oz came through, one of the guys found one in a seized engine he had in the shed and is sending to me via the mail. I'll still measure it up once it gets here. Would be good to find an alternate for future reference. I'm still planning drive...

    4cyl engine colour

    I gave up trying to get the original colour (in Aust) a few years ago and went for Detroit Alpine Green. I think it's period enough to get away with

    Diff Oil Specificiation

    That does make some sense. From what I have read one of the primary differences is that GL4 has lead as an additive and GL5 has phosphorous/bronze.

    Diff Oil Specificiation

    Just wondering if anyone can enlighten me as to the difference between GL4 and GL5 specification gear oil and is the later (80w/90 GL5) suitable Diff Oil for a P6.

    Strip Speedo failure, where to start?

    All sorted, the right angle drive on the gearbox (Auto) was the culprit. I was able to get the 51 year old grommet in thr transmission tunnel out and back in without damaging it. Back on the road.
