    Mx5 Engine And Box

    The exmo has a tuned redtop in it. The owner was selling it separately for about 4K
  2. This looks like a sub-k that has had a wishbone conversation. You might find it’s a one off so could be out of luck. Have you tried contacting the previous owner?
  3. The chassis no is dealers choice. Provided it meets the vosa directives. you could see if the seller has any build documentation which might show the original buttresses.
  4. It could well be an Exmo. It’s a monocoque chassis and from pictures 9 onwards it looks like the front end buttresses have been cut off and a double wishbone suspension has been fitted. Check that there’s sufficient strengthening on the chassis.
  5. So I’ve just fitted led rear bulbs to my kit. Now the lights look more orange than red. Could this be an mot issue?
  6. The V5 should say RobinHood 2B or similar NOT Sierra.

    I remember watching it with a friend who was a submariner who laughed all the way through the film.
  8. My cat used to live in the car unbeknownst to me. Never had a mouse problem.
  9. Didn’t some earlier cars use metro steering racks ?
  10. Same as last year, sort the things I wanted to do 15 months ago. But due to work I’ll be doing it in March.

    I think GBS or kitspares sell a floor strengthening plate for the 2B. Its quite pricey against a few pieces of angle iron.
  12. I had a load of spitting back through the carb after having not run the car for about a year. It turns out the vernier pulley has moved whilst starting and the timing was way out. Check all your alignment marks. Tdc and cam pulley. Check your firing order. Dizzy and rotor alignment for firing on 1 at tdc.
  13. Im paying close to a grand for the 3 year extended warranty on my 3yr s-max Thats from Hartwell Ford in Kidlington. I agree with Mark that there are small print clauses and a friend of mine got stung on a new engine for his T5 van but Id sooner have it. Or rather the wife would sooner have it
  14. Thanks for the heater pics. Ive got a mini heater that Im looking to squeeze in the same place once Ive moved some loom.
