Wheely good builder!

Wheely good builder! (4/5)



  1. Many people recommend Bestek near Crawley. I think if you tell him want you need he will sort it. I think he will also do a swap for a good price for your original one but don't quote me on that!
  2. Hi. I've just asked him and he thinks he is enjoying too much in this weather now and has decided to hang onto it. Can't blame him. I'll remove this post soon.

    1.6 Pinto and IVA

    Hi. I also have a 1.6 pinto. I'm not 100%sure about the iva but I believe due to the age on the engine it will be smoke test only. Someone may correct me though. I haven't got the Iva manual. E10 will only effect fuel system parts like fuel lines and rubber gaskets in the carb. Hopefully you are fitting e10 compliant fuel lines. Remember super unleaded is still e5 so you can use that to be safe and it gives a bit more performance. I use lead substitutes in my unleaded fuel. The engine has done many thousands of miles and shows no sign of regression to the valve seats. I'll get them done if a problem appears. Also I don't do many high speed long distance stuff which causes most issues if they aren't hardened. Have you checked it hasn't got the unleaded stamps by no4 exhaust port? (M,MM,N OR NN) I think some of the late ones were converted according to the Haynes manual. Good luck.
  4. Hi

    I’ve just joined the forum having recently purchased a Mk1 Sierra S7 in need of some tlc before getting back on the road. I’m trying to track down some build plans and was hoping that you might be able to help! 
    Many thanks. Mark

  5. Many thanks. Will pass that on.
  6. Hi. A friend of mine is reluctantly putting his Superspec up for sale. I've seen and heard it and all appears to be good to me but will obviously need closer inspection. Mot till June. He is firm on price though and is happy not to sell if the price isn't reached. I think it's pretty standard. It has the Rover 2 litre fuel injected engine. I will get more info if its needed for anyone interested. Based near Chichester, West Sussex £7500
  7. Sorted! You spurred me on to take the switch apart. I was afraid of springs flying everywhere and making things worse. It was a right state in there. Gave it a good clean and all is well. Many thanks!
  8. Mot next week so I thought I'd check it over. My hazards are only working on near side. The indicators all work fine when used normally. With hazards only left ones work, but if I indicated right all hazards work fine. Have cleaned all contacts at the indicator stalk connector. Tried new relay. Checked earth's. I'm a bit stumped. They have been fine before. I'm thinking it may be the switch? Any ideas? Tia
  9. Hi. Welcome to our world. It's quite tricky to advise too much on the issues. Every car will have been built differently so diagnosis of the guages is difficult. To lose all of them implies a fuse. Then you have to find out why it blew. Are they all separate or an all in one display of some sort? Indicators as well is slightly strange as they shouldn't be connected. Possibly an earth issue. Oil leaks are not uncommon on old pintos but should be sorted anyway. Usual culprits are rocker cover gasket or sump gasket ,crank seals. Can you see the rough area where it is coming from? I can't be much more help. I'm sure someone will be along with more help maybe. Good luck.

    2b plus?

    Hi. Could someone tell me the difference between a 2b and a 2b plus please. Many thanks.
  13. Hi Richy. I've just sent you a PDF of a manual. Hope it helps. David
  14. Thanks for that. My wife will be navigating now which is great because it's a complicated route. Definitely not just head south.
  15. You should have a bar that folds back and is held in place by straps. This is the usual method
