Topics I've Started

Peterborough Car Show

01 September 2017 - 06:28 PM

Tomorrow and Sunday by the river. Went a couple of years ago and although there weren't as many cars as I expected there were a lot of people due to it being free entry.
Too late to get entry paperwork now but I am sure they would be pleased to see entries on the day. They didn't want to look at any paperwork on the way in anyway. Worth a look if you are local.

Redtop Sump Gasket

25 August 2017 - 01:55 PM

Just bought a couple of sump gaskets as mine is leaking and needs replacing. Supplied with the gaskets are some small washers which are to go inside the gasket to stop it being over compressed when the bolts are tightened. Does anybody else use these or do you just rely on torqueing them up correctly with a torque wrench as I have done previously

Caravan Insurance

25 August 2017 - 01:50 PM

Just a quick nudge to those of you that tow their houses behind them on occasions especially as the end of season bash is coming up.
We had an insurance renewal come through just before we had our annual holiday in Cornwall and my wife was inclined to leave it until we returned by which time it would have expired. I renewed it as it would have been just my luck if something happened on holiday.
On the return journey the offside tyre burst on the M5 with the remains of the tyre damaging the side and underneath of the van. We had a good inflated spare and Jack but there was so much destroyed tyre underneath I couldn't get the jack underneath the van so had to call recovery out. Didn't worry too much as I knew I had insurance and we had stopped OK without any drama or injury.
The tyres were about 4 years old with very little wear but the recovery chap said a common cause of delamination is flat spots from being left standing for long periods. Changed the others now too.
Went for an insurance quote and the bill is going to be 2334 Quid! Was that a well spent 100 pound or Not?

Clutch Bodge

17 June 2017 - 12:16 PM

On the way home the other afternoon I was finding it difficult to engage first gear and the clutch pedal had a lot of travel before doing anything. It seems as if either the quadrant teeth or the ratchet adjuster have failed but I can't see anything without dismantling the pedals. Is it OK to adjust the tension on the cable by using spacers so that I can use the car until it comes off the road in the winter when I can assess and repair. I know there needs to be a little bit of slack in the cable.
I always said if there was any weak spots the rolling road would find them. At least it hasn't happened miles from home.
