  2. Cheers for the udpate! I think probably worth a pic of the rear-spring seats in terms of helping find a home for it.Not many 2 owner cavs about.

    Thanks neil body wise it hasn’t had much really and it still hasn’t had rear arches. I have changed the plugs but i sropped the fuel tank out of it last night and thats in abit of a sorry state inside 😕

    Thats a nice colour, has the body had much work regarding the usual rust areas? Regarding the missing i cannot add much to what John said, but many years ago i had something similar on the 130 which was only about seven years old at the time and i changed the plugs which had only been in for around 7 or 8000 miles ( its many years ago so but i think it was somewhere around that ) and all was well. On inspection of the old plugs ( champion plugs ) there was a fine crack in the ceramic around the centre electrode. Just a thought and easy to check.

    Oh right. Even closer then 👍🏼 Only 20? Are they really that much of a dieing breed? Im sure that’s actually a good turn out just seems such a shame as they used to be everywhere back in the day 😂

    Vauxhall Bedford Opel Association annual show. Used to be at Billing but is now the other (your) side of Northampton at Sywell airfield. I would think we'll get 20 Mk2s there next year.

    I will do hopefully get time on it tomorrow. Whats VBOA? 😬 hopefully I’ll still have it then but due to no longer having storage for it I don’t want it sat on the driveway.

    Tell me what happens. We need your car on our stand at VBOA in July next year

    Yes It was! I originally bought the car when i was 18 so an audio system was a must! 😂 yeah I always wanted to redtop it so i did but didn’t really use it after i did and then it ended up at the back of the lockup. Im a mechanic by trade but working on modern cars these days is nothing like these! I miss this much room around an engine bay! to be honest i just did a google as it’s always good to get a second opinion at times 👍🏼

    That looks really nice. You put a lot of work into it. You clearly know what you are doing. Is the red cable across the back for audio system? How did you find us?

    Yes mate i did the installation many years ago. Been off the road for 14 years in dry storage with some other projects. Im going to rig a fuel pressure gauge to the rail and tape it to the windscreen see what the rail pressure is as it hesitates. Failing that i am tempted to drop the tank just for a look. nice i always liked the mk3’s. i have had 5 mk2’s and this one was the first 😊

    Smart install from the photo. Did you do it? Why off the road for so long? My questions were after info as to whether it could be a vacuum build up in the tank restricting fuel supply when used for a while. Or when starting, if the pressure in the petrol header manifold had dropped and needed some pump action to get it up before it would fire. I have an XE'd Mk3.

    Haven’t tried running without the cap off. I like to let it warm up but if i drive it from cold it doesn’t seem to misbehave at all. Only after afew miles. Normally it starts straight up but just recently it sometimes cranks first time with no fire then strikes up straight away second time
  14. GreyDJ2

    Newbie

    Have you tried running it with the petrol cap off, to check the tank breather is clear? On starting, do you turn it on, wait a mo, then start or go for it straight off?

    Already changed the filter

    That’s for your reply i have noticed the slow replies 😂 yeah all vac hoses ect fine and no external leaks. Seems worse when cornering so im going to check fuel pressure and probably drop the fuel tank as it has been standing for many years and the first couple of days being on the road it ran faultlessly. Thanks for the compliment yeah i do have some more pictures of the old girl. forgot to mention im in newark Nottinghamshire

    Welcome to the site. Its a bit slow around here. Where are you and how about a few more pictures? Good looking car. Fault sounds heat related, something expanding and letting air in. Are the vacuum hoses solid and the inlet manifold OK? No air leak between the AFM and the throttle body?

    This is my cav sri redtop just put it back on the road after many years of storage. Having afew running issues if anyone can help? From cold doesn’t seem to start first crank but always second time and also is developed hesitation or feels like a really bad misfire after a few miles of driving (when warm) can anybody advise with this? Thanks

  21. Wow! Wish I’d have kept mine, yours looks nice, sure you don’t want to sell 🤔😁, if you ever see one give me a shout, I’m happy to pay a finders fee too, I also had a mk2 Sri saloon 1985..Before the 130 in Barret brown, a great car with every extra Vauxhall did.. I was 21 at the time. Wish I still had them both 😩
  22. Good luck in your search they are like hens teeth people tend to keep them long term, i have had mine 27 years almost.
  23. Hi all... don’t suppose any one knows of a cav sri130 saloon for sale anywhere? A nice one would be a dream come true 😁

    Thanks for the schematics. I'll see what is up, there is a simple sliding switch on the drivers door, it does actuate all the other actuators, but from the schematics, M1 and M2 contacts are supposed to be switchable + and - for the motors themselves... and it ends up beneath my seat for some reason. The central locking works, always has. I had a spot of bad luck, there was a significant flood in my area, house and the yard were flooded and the car bit it too (a crapton of dirt is now inside the shell), so checking on the unholy wiring will have to wait a bit.
