  1. Next Wednesday 28th, 6pm onwards, Malt Shovel Pub, Coventry Road, Nr Stonebridge, Coventry, CV7 7HL. Generally they're trying to kick us out just after 930pm so if you're coming, don't leave it too late. Also, if you want to eat, book beforehand as they don't normally let people just rock up and eat. Entrance to the pub car park is off the A452 Chester Road heading North 50 yards from the island. Everyone welcome. See you there
  2. My V5 shows no former keepers. Built by me with single donor and IVA'd in 2011 Special notes section 3 states 'Kit built / converted. Assembled from parts all of which may not be new.' Just shows lack of consistency in how DVLA register cars.
  3. You can buy just the rubbers off Ebay but better to replace the whole joint which is a Ford Transit drag link end. More details here: https://nw.rhocar.org/htm/parts.htm They come in LH and RH threaded versions, you want RH. Quniton Hazel part number would be QD1117RH It won't be a 5 minute job to swap.
  4. Mk3, 4 or 5 Cortina, (double wishbone front suspension.
  5. No draught beers available tonight, hope no-one is put off.
  6. I've made a booking to eat at 7pm. If anyone else wants to join us let me know.
  7. Thanks guys. If anyone else wants you join us, let me know asap. I'll make a provisional booking later this week.
  8. I know the car, I did work on it for a previous owner so what follows is based on what I saw when I worked on it in 2021. The speedo works off GPS it isn't driven off the gearbox / transmission. My recommendation is get rid of it and replace it with one that does. The rev counter - I think this is actually another speedo but I couldn't tell for sure because I didn't have any instructions for it but from memory, I think it did have another GPS input which is why I didn't think it was a rev counter. I left it with the 4 wire connector disconnected.
  9. Just needs Windows 3.1 to run the disc!!
  10. It's nearly that time again, the annual West Mids post Christmas meal. The date is Wednesday 31st January 2024. Same format as previous years and at our usual monthly venue The Malt Shovel Pub, Coventry Road, Nr Stonebridge, Coventry, CV7 7HL https://maps.app.goo.gl/P7mBK68FBauW2q6C6 To keep the table bills simple, most people normally opt for the carvery but other options are available: https://www.tobycarvery.co.uk/restaurants/midlands/stonebridgeislandmeriden/carverymenu#/ Meet up from 7PM onwards and aiming to eat around 7-30. I like to give the pub a rough headcount in a couple of week's time and then give them a more exact numbers a few days before the event so if interested parties can pencil it in their diary and let me know as soon as possible please. Everyone welcome (including ladies and kids) and new members (or those thinking of joining) are especially welcome. ATTENDING Richard and Jackie Steve, Rosemary, Rebecca, Geoff, Pat Jez Gaz +5 Nicola and Dean Dan, Becky and Lily Steve, Dee and Paige Martin and Jeff
