    Wnigaurd door mirror

    Sorry. Don’t know the dimensions/distance of the holes. I suspect the days of trawling through scrapyards looking for one are probably now banned. There are cheaper repro ones out there but I cannot comment on the quality. This one has the hole distance measurements. COMPATIBLE NEW PAIR...

    Excellent anecdote from a former Rover apprentice

    A mechanic friend I used to use In London once told about a guy who was taking his car for its MOT. It was burning oil and was never going to pass so, in his wisdom, he decided to drain most of the oil out so there would be less to burn. He didn’t make it to the garage and had to be rescued with...

    What should the proper choke cable clamp look like!?

    A pleasure sir! You guys have bailed me out enough times over the past couple of years! Considering how cold it is here at the moment it might as well have been 4am. Just to note, the head of the threaded bolt that compresses and ‘locks’ the choke cable is slightly smaller than the part with...

    Spark Plug Sockets for P6B V8

    Hi Chris, A few people have identified successful sockets in my previous post below. I ended up getting one of the guys from work to trim one down on his metal lathe as my ham fisted attempt using an angle grinder was just awful. Paul. V8 spark plug removal

    So do I! Fantastic piece of driving. I love the part when, what looks like a Porsche, (6:30) realises he can’t outrun the MG, indicates right and gives way. The Europeans drivers are much more courteous than us Brits. That would never happen on the North Circular!

    Can anyone please explain?

    Hi Cobraboy, Thank you for your concern. All is good in this part of the world. I am well and truly out in the sticks well away from the big smoke, keeping out of trouble. It’s a dangerous time to be trawling eBay. You end up buying a load of stuff you don’t actually want or need!
