  1. Last week
  2. Keep us up to date on the progress. These things will no doubt affect most of us at some point as they get older. May need to consult him over high tickover. Mine was running rich at MoT and garage trimmed it to pass. Unfortunately since then she will generally tickover abut 1200/1300.
  3. hi guys the cav cabby is in at a local tuning garage since last Monday i just could not get to bottom of the running issue slight miss/splutter under 2 rpm plus high tick over. sid from the garage ran me today and has sorted the tick over but he has not got to the bottom of the miss/splutter he suspects its the airflow meter so bought 1 from the Netherlands should be here sometime at the end of the month.
  4. Is she running better now? I replaced a couple of fuel pipes as they were also perished - it's an age thing and I know how they feel lol. I thought my early running problems were down to fuel possibly blocking in fuel filter as it was somewhat sporadic. Turned out it was the central HT lead was seating properly so didn't always make a proper connection. with rubber hoods in place it all felt tight enough - doh! Spent ages changing filter and flushing cleaners through. Think it misled me because when I ran the fuel cleaners through it ran great. Good luck with it. I've been out enjoying the sun
  5. Sounds like you are making great progress! Are you any further forward with it?
  6. ... and just when it was all going so well, running smooth as a sewing machine, when suddenly dropped a cylinder. A bit of investigation later and found to have a broken rocker arm. Not sure why but my brother is working on it, appears to have done no damage other than the rocker - very lucky - we don't know why it has broken, but more digging required. Even on 3 cylinders the car is keen to drive!! ๐Ÿ˜† That trailer is awesome but sadly, that and the Volvo are not mine lol. They belong to my brother's friend who helped get the car home. I know who to shout on if I find any other p

  13. Hi, My name is Valentin. I live in Belgium, near Chimay -for those who love beers-. I love cars since my birth and I've always loved motoring from the 80s. I own a may 1988 (belgian-made) Ascona 1.6 LS, low mileage, french model, saved from the scrap last year. So back to its birth place! Oddly specced : red, twin mirrors, grey faux-leather, no radio or speakers (well, it changed with period correct Sharp headunit and Pioneer speakers). The CCs were not that rare back in the day, but I haven't seen one (except mine) since the early 00s. So, I'm pretty proud of my time capsule.
  14. It could well be 5 John, its a while since I looked at them.

  16. Its in storage, but i can get some tomorrow for you.
  17. I have a brand new one here for injection car. Might need a return line fitting as the blank cover is welded up. This was for a side sender with six holes. Yours for 70quid.
  18. Hi Can anyone help me out as I am after a 2.0 8v fuel tank for my cavalier mk2 saloon

  20. Car looks really good. Look forward to seeing it in the flesh. TBH my green eyed devil was really looking at the trailer in the first pic. I've been eyeing a 2.5V6 Vectra B CDX Estate in Norwich. My trailer is fine for Neve the Nova but the Vectra would be a tight squeeze. Had a Corsa D on her last week. Ended up had to drive her up and over the wheels and mudguards to load. Made me have a look online at dimensions. To my surprise a Corsa D is about 20mm wider than a Vectra B. Shows how models outgrow themselves.
