    Orange Customer Service

    Just moved to a sim only deal at Tesco, as I have my sons phone on my bill I get a extra 150mins of talk time. 900 minutes, unlimited texts, and 1gig of Internet for £10, think Virgin. Could be a tad cheaper. Try the U. Switch Web site for phone and Sim only deals quite a lot of choice.

    2Litre Zetec Engine

    Location is Peterlee, Co Durham. You will need to provide a spark, best route being a megajolt . If you fit bike carbs you will get between 170 & 179 bhp for a lot less hassle and exspense of say £ 2500 of a decent fuel injection set up. Basically best Bang for your Buck!

    Hi Danny I have a 2litre black top shortened sump , came out of a 7 supposed to be 66,000 with GBS bike carb manifold with matching 40mm bike carbs sitting in the garage. Problem is we are the North East.

    Anyone Know Much About Radon?

    Radon is generaly found in Cornwall and parts of Northumberland, there has to be granite below for it to be present. Why do you suspect Radon? On new houses a radon barrier is fitted which is just a good quality polythene DPM. There are vented systems that can be fitted. If you can give more background information I can get you a better answer. Cheers Steve I work in a Builders Merchant so deal with this type of material.

    Paying For A Licence Renewal By Cheque

    A friend of mines wife had to change details of her licence after they got married and sent a cheque to the DVLA. This was the only cheque she used within a year, and within 3 weeks her Bank had a request for new cheque book and a change of address. Obviously this was a attempt at fraud and the only coincidence was the DVLA, so I hope you don't have a similar incident!

    A mate had a small crash on his motor bike and called his break down service, if they did not turn up within the hour it would be free next year. They turned up within the hour to Seahouses in Northumberland, no mean feat, all for £50.00 per year. For this he gets Hotel cover, a replacement vehicle including a bike. Full European cover, and its done through Motor Cycle Action Group via Equity Red Star. For a further £45 you can add another vehicle. I wonder if they would do a deal for Hoodies?

    1600 Pinto With A 2L Head?

    Hi Simon , just briefly looking at the car I see its fitted with the original shocks from the Kit, most people change these as they tend to fail after a short period of time. If you are condidering buying it I would try to get the price down at least by the cost of New Shocks. Good luck

    Gbs 2B Wishbone Handling Pack

    Hi Droid have you noticed the front suspension is more complient, instead of bouncing along, it now rides softer. My suspension was designed by a Hoodie who did a Batch run for members, I thing it was "Old Timbo" would interesting to compare the 2 on the road.

    Gbs 2B Wishbone Handling Pack

    Hi Droid was it you I was talking too at Newark late Saturday night about modified 2B front suspension? It was one of the Scotish lads, anyway I have modified suspension and out of all the things I have changed on the car, it's the one I am most pleased with. The car handles now, Sports Bikes cannot keep up with it on the twisty stuff. Best money you can spend!

    Yokohama Tyre Wanted

    Does anyone have a Yokohama A539 205 x 50 R15 that they want to part with? It was the standard tyre that came with the 2B, I have scrubed off my 2 front tyres and I am strugling to get 205 at short notice so I can drive my car to Newark. Obviously it would have to be in the North East. As a compromise I can get a pair of Yokohama Parada Spec 2 but only in 195x 50 x 15, would these be OK on the front?
