the old girl had her annual birthday test and boats a new MOT! hurrah. performed well until I picked dit up after test..started and ran O for 1 min then well down on power .no acceleration .choke made little difference. getting slowly up to speed got a couple of backfires via exhaust and bit of black smoke. after 4-5 mins driving it suddenly found its 'legs' and started driving normally.sheesh .
Hello all. I think I must have a stuck clutch. The clutch was new last April, but has been standing over winter, and now won't go into gear. I tried jumping it with foot on pedal and brake then starting in gear. But nothing still stuck. Tried warming the engine up and depressing pedal with a length of wood and leaving for a while, still nothing.. Does anyone have any other ideas please..
Steve - did you see my post today (21.1) on the front brake flexi hose fitting - are you able to comment on this. I have begged, stole and borrowed time this weekend to fix this but as usual the little details cause the most time - much appreciated, Simon
Last email showed order no 9878, recd 30/8/21, actioned 30/10/21 (I emailed asking for progress), posted 2/11/21. GBP 87.90. Nothing recd here. I post query on FB, they delete it. All phone calls go to voice mail. All they have to do is reply, give me tracking info, something.

hi there, I've got an older 2000TC in New York, was originally Arden Green but had been painted Cameron Green sometime in its life -- I am in the beginning of a complete re-paint from the top down (also restoring the original webasto sunroof) and in search of a good source for an Arden Green Automotive paint - what was your source for paint in the US for your car? it looks great!
