    Miserable failure

    I use my caravan levelling ramps which I run mine up you can then get the jack underneath and jack up on middle of the front cross member. If doing the rear same ramps and jack on the diff. There is a double skinned section on the chassis rails (one either side running front to back) (Not sills - don't even breath on old mx5 sills) front and rear for jack stands. For the oil filter you will need a special tool https://www.mx5parts.co.uk/filter-removal-tool-mk1-25-mk4-p-3324.html otherwise it will be very difficult.

    Bike Carb trouble

    I had the same issue with mine and also after a while petrol started to eat the silicone. My carbs even fell off once on the way to the Donnington kit car show! The solution was purchased at that show from Dan ST a fixing kit with flouro lined silicone hose and thin clips. Never had an issue after that.
  4. When I did mine I learned that the brake lights should be wired in parallel not series. Two lamps in series will be dimmer than in two in parallel. If one lamp in the series failed then the second series lamp would have no power whereas in parallel if one failed the other still has power. Take a live and earth from the back of one light ( or where convenient) and connect to the third brake light. This way no other circuit is disturbed or changed.
  5. Andi don't raise it too high, if the roof needs redoing you might have trouble getting felt up.
  6. I have found the inertia switch and plug in the garage but it is not the same as yours and then plug is different (same colour but different). If you are really struggling you can have this switch https://drive.google.com/file/d/1oyeOl-c1gmsBkq5VCkVO8Q5-wy1u1u9U/view?usp=drivesdk
  7. I may have one but cannot get into garage to check until Saturday.
  8. I have a pair of Rab rock climbing gloves. Crushed neoprene warm waterproof with excellent grip but bloody expensive.
  9. Legally its a big no to fitting a tow bar to virtually any kit car. As Dan says all tow bars must be type approved if fitted to vehicles registered after 1.8.1998. A non type approved tow bar will breach the construction and use regulations and therefore be an offence. Since it is unlikely that the vehicle was registered with any towing weights specified it will not have a plated gross train weight and so will be overladen if towing any trailer. Another offence. Unless you declare the tow bar to your insurance company, your insurance will be voidable, which means the insurance
  10. Check the thermostat housing later ones had a bleed outlet blanked off with a rubber cap. Put a pipe on that an feed into a raised bottle with some coolant in it. Dont forget the bottle or garage ceiling will be sprayed ( dont ask me how I know)
  11. oh almost forgot it is legal to drive a car without an MOT to a pre-booked MOT appointment as long as the car is not in a dangerous condition.
  12. The responsibility for driving a car with no mot is with the driver. If you no longer own the car you are neither allowing or permitting the owner to commit the offence. As Dan says register the change of keeper on line as soon as you can. Keep a note of the time and date of the sale. The v5 is not proof of ownership only that you are the keeper. The tax will not transfer with the car and ends upon sale you will be refunded complete months paid for. It is the new keepers responsibility to tax and insure the vehicle and this can be done online too. Remember to cancel any
  13. I have annexed Newark to both South Yorkshire and Lincolnshire
  14. Mr Fry you have just referred to a private communication with another member which came to your attention without my knowledge or consent but which I trusted all committee members to keep confidential. This is a significant breach of your role as a committee member. I will now be using the few brain cells I have for what they were trained for Yours sincerely Andrew Osborne Llb
  15. Mr Fry you have one chance to apologise to me for your abusive language.
