  1. Interesting one just put on fleabay starting at 1k. Already registered. I wonder what price it will go for? It will give a good idea of where the market is maybe .
  2. Just remember the cost of getting it through registration/ iva. At least £600...
  3. Walk away. Lots of kits for sale at the moment. End of season soon so should be some bargains to be had. Good luck.
  4. What is is registered as on the v5? Robin hood or Sierra?
  5. Hi. First question is, is it registered correctly as a Robin Hood, or is it still registered as a 1991 Sierra? If its still Sierra I would personally walk away as you would have to build it and iva it. Only worth a few hundred if that is the case. Just my opinion..
  6. There will be people far more expert than me but the first thing to ask is has it been through the iva test?
  7. I paid out for a decent breathable cover from Rimmer bros. Worth every penny. My old plastic waterproof cover kept in condensation and caused lots of corrosion over the winter. Used the new one last winter and it was dry as a bone. £125 but worth it. Oops just spotted date of post. An old thread.

    Will add that to the list of things to try. Its getting shorter. Slightly afraid of frying the accuspark unit. Just checked all sparks. They all look the same. Did another less rushed compression check. That cylinder has always been about 10% above the others at about 180. Seems good but is there a clue there? Baffled

    Its almost new and there is no play. Thanks for the ideas guys. Keep em coming! Cant get it at it today. Another thought is an air leak in the inlet for that cylinder. Will inspect tomorrow. Yes tried the rotating dizzy thing. Still no 4

    Is everyone as stumped as me? I think its head off time...

    Question.. could a damaged valve cause a misfire but still give good compression? Clutching at straws now. More info. Letting it run on idle with misfire and removing the plug straight away shows a wet with fuel plug. Revving the engine then removing it shows a good dry plug..

    Hold on to your hats. New cap, new rotor, new plug, new lead, new accuspark stealth unit, new coil. Checked compression (175) within 10% of others. Checked valve clearances, checked timing. Good battery voltage and voltage at the coil. Still not firing on no 4. Engine note doesn't change when i pull the lead. Pulling leads on others it misses more. There is a spark but it looks weak. Orange and dancing about the gap. Took for a drive. Drives fine above about 2500 revs. Or maybe the problem is hidden above that? But seems to perform well. I'm stuck. All answers appreciated. David
