    Run on

    Its only really started doing it today when I put it back in the garage after a hard run it is booked in next sat for rolling rd and tune up to me it’s never run right since it had the fast rd cam put on and the injection head I don’t think it was ever really set up properly that was 2 yrs ago and sat in the garage for 2 yrs so not really took it out for a good run until I got mot done

    shortend sump

    hi all i know this has been asked god knows how many times but how much oil needs to go in as i am going to do an oil change but i cant tell how much oil will be in the sump as i have pulled the dipstick out to check the oil and looks like the previous owner has cut the end off with the min and max markers and just left with the wire i know the old pinto engine held 3.75lts with orignal sump pan any ideas or advice
  9. Thanks richyb66 I give it a go and see how it goes
  10. Had mot yesterday and tester fails it on the emissions and the drivers seat as there was too much flex in the floor seat moved side to side a lot when it was up on the ramp I noticed it was just bolted at the back though the floor if I put 100 mm plates on and bolts in the front will this stiffen the floor up or was thinking angle iron running across the back and across the front will that work
