    just testing

    Yes, me too. Over 100 cars and 15 bikes! As regards the Borgward, if it was in good condition probably about £8-10K. The coupes are well over the £20K mark with the cabriolets way over that.

    just testing

    Yes, it's a 1958 Isabella TS. Bought it for £20 in 1965. Converted it to 12 volt lighting but kept 6 volt starter, instruments and the valve radio. Changed the column gear change to floor change when I found a German police conversion in Wolverhampton of all places. I repainted it with Tekaloid coach enamel by hand. I enjoyed it so much I kept it for 13 years. Rob

    Seems to work ok from iPad. Not done with other hosting software though. Still appears to have the file size limitations as before. That's my 2nd Car many, many moons ago!

    Website feedback thread

    I'm getting the same overlap problem on safari on the iPad, in fact it's almost unreadable. Otherwise looks good so far.

    Its A Smoker!

    20/50 oil is what I've always used on a pinto engine even though some of the oil companies say 10/40 is ok. I use Valvoline Racing VR1 oil as it is supposed to have extra additives to protect the cam. Steve, yes I have autocorrect and that's the problem! Rob

    Steve, just edited my post. I meant to put pan scourers, not pan scouters!

    Steve, has your catch can got a small outlet breather filter on it? If so, I have found with mine that it causes too much back pressure in the system and I had oil from my dipstick and it actually lifted the cam cover sealed filler cap. I took the filter off and put a pipe from the can outlet towards the ground, since the can was a cheap Chinese one and didn't work properly I filled it with stainless pan scourers to separate any oil from the gases. Problem solved. I have never had a pinto smoke as heavily as yours, doesn't white smoke from the filler indicate water in the oil? Rob

    Windscreen Marking

    I wouldn't want to be driving behind a tempered glass windscreen if it shattered. Even though the particles are supposed to be blunt they can still damage your eyes. I got my marked laminated windscreen cut at a tractor windscreen suppliers of all places!
  10. If you can't get one of the "open" ones I used a piece of powder coated aluminium diamond mesh that I picked up at a show but is available on eBay etc. Car Builder Solutions may have something similar. Don't go for too small a size that will restrict your air flow. I replaced my grill with it to protect the radiator from stones and the cooling system worked well all through the summer

    Wheels

    I've got 17" 40 profile Rainsport 3s on mine and find them great. You have to watch as they have soft sidewalks so I run them at 20 psi, any less and they "squirm". They will take a bit more pressure without giving too hard a ride but I didn't find any improvement in handling.

    Braided Brake Hoses

    Always used Hel on my Harley's and Goldwings - excellent!

    Couldn't believe that the forecast was for snow at 10.30 this morning but it's here!

    Timing Belt Tensioner

    According to my rebuild manual, with the spring tensioner type, after the belt is positioned correctly with the tensioner backed off you release the tensioner so that it can tension the belt. It then says that because this has only tensioned one part of the belt you turn the engine half a turn clockwise and THEN tighten the locking bolt/nut on the tensioner.

    The Fairies In The Garage

    Have you actually checked for a spark at the plugs? Could be the distributor. If it had been one with points I would have suggested the points closing up.
