  1. Send me a pm with your email address and i'll try and forward some of my old S7 nosecone (hinged at the bottom)
  2. Here it is - brave guy!! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-kent-37224187
  3. I would recommend 150 mm (or 6 inches in old money). It was certainly the standard for the SVA and is ok for the IVA as far as I know
  4. Al doing extremely well - tiny baby feeding and sleeping & big sister is helping mum look after him - downside is I had to go back to work today. We certainly must! I haven't had one of your excellent bacon rolls for a while
  5. I got my present a week early - a baby brother (Matthew) for my 5 year old daughter I even got a card from each of them

    Seal at the rear of the gearbox? Or the seal at the front of the 'box?

    Ouch My Eye

    I know how you feel !! The hospital tell you to be very still and not to blink whatever happens (as they approach your eye with a needle) I'm surprised I still have a working pair
  8. I keep telling work they should get an Ebay account
  9. We've got some of this at work - excellent stuff but I'm told it's about £25 a tube
  10. Car Builder Solutions http://www.carbuildersolutions.com/uk/
  11. I loved my HB Viva. Many hours of fun and a great car to learn mechanics on (drums all round!!). Not too sure about the new one.....
  12. That's easy for you to say.... [i'll get my coat ]

    Hard To Start

    It sounds like someone has converted an auto choke to manual. Choke cables are widely available http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/UNIVERSAL-LOCKING-CHOKE-CABLE-QUALITY60-MINI-CLASSIC-RELIANT-MG-FORD-VAUXHALL-/371245187792?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item566ff002d0
  14. AFAIK there's no reason why you can't fit a remote reservoir to the Sierra master cylinder providing you can find the correct fitting for the holes in the top
  15. Unfortunately I have now had a look at the T & C's. Firstly they include an agreement that all transactions are governed by the laws of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and they expressly exclude any European legislation relating to the sale of goods. The terms and conditions also include the following .... "Your order is an offer to Amazon to buy the product(s) in your order. When you place an order to purchase a product from Amazon, we will send you an e-mail confirming receipt of your order and containing the details of your order (the "Order Confirmation E-mail"). The Order Confirmation E-mail is acknowledgement that we have received your order, and does not confirm acceptance of your offer to buy the product(s) ordered. We only accept your offer, and conclude the contract of sale for a product ordered by you, when we dispatch the product to you and send e-mail confirmation to you that we've dispatched the product to you (the "Dispatch Confirmation E-mail"). " So basically, as previously expected, we are well and truly not getting our bargains!
  16. I too have received my cancellation emails It's been a while since I had the contract law books out and my memory may be a little rusty but... I agree with Florin - their "price" is an invitation to treat but you then accept (an "offer") and Amazon then confirm ("acceptance"). Thus we have an offer, acceptance, an intention on behalf of both parties to be legally bound. The only thing missing is the "consideration" (the money you pay). So long as funds haven't been transferred then the contract is not yet legally fulfilled. What I'm not sure of is when funds are actually transferred when paying by credit card. Or by debit card. What is the situation when paying by Paypal? Also I haven't yet had a chance to study Amazon's T & C's
  17. Flippin' people posting up bargains Just ordered a jack and trolley
  18. Ouch!! £100-£150 http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2060778.m570.l1313.TR6.TRC2.A0.H0.Xpinto+sump&_nkw=pinto+sump&_sacat=0
  19. I'm not clear why you need a complete driveshaft? Surely you just replace the metal can and gaitor etc. You just need to know the dameter of the can as they come in two sizes. I have some of these repair kits going spare so if you need one get in touch.
  20. I've got some of these boot repair kits - they come in two size diameters - 73mm & 77mm I also think someone is selling them on Ebay
  21. The carb looks very much like a Weber 38 DGAS (or DGMS if it's a manual choke). The Weber name should be cast into the top of the carb body just in front of the throats. There should be an ID tag attached just behind the petrol pipes and "38DGAS" should be stamped into the base of the carb. Are you after a standard Ford air filter housing (as I have a couple of different ones in the shed) or an aftermarket one?
  22. Thanks Ian & Bob. I have to say I can't find any provision for it and I think your course organisers were being economical with the truth. (stand by to be corrected ). BOB - the exemptions to the CPC are here https://www.gov.uk/driver-cpc-exemptions-examples (you've probably already looked) but I can't see an exemption that would cover you (dependant on the distance you travel from the "depot").
