  1. Gear wheel will come out by removing the bolt not really possible to repair it, may be worth checking that the end of the cable is fitted into the end of the gear wheel fully. If the gear wheel is u s someone oh here will probably have one, i have just checked my spare gearbox and the gear wheel is not fitted only a rubber bung.
  2. Hi Andy and welcome to the site. That must be a rare car.
  3. Welcome, looks a nice car. must say i like the countryside views.
  4. Looks a very nice car was that the one that was for sale on ebay?
  5. Welcome to the site, have you got any pictures yet of the cabby?
  6. Welcome to the site, never owned a Cally but have a 130 saloon in Carmen Red. You only have to read the projects past and present on here to see where our cars rust ( everywhere you can and cannot see ) and there is plenty of advice and knowledge on here concerning all aspects of restoration and maintenance. Tahir is the man to go to regarding these cars and Rabbit by me has been restoring a Cally for some time dont know how he is getting on with it as bloody COVID has kept me away ( i will be 70 next year so well and truly self isolating )
  7. Eighteen months ago i paid £25 for two new in the bag GM old stock headlamp wiper arms with 4 new blades from a local guy here in Ruabon who had a 130 around 30 years ago which i thought was very cheap but no motors, fortunately both mine were ok. I think used motors will be very rare though i don,t recall ever seeing any for sale.

    Hello again

    Hello Abo nice to hear from you again and that you hope to get another Cav. We are all a little older now and i have more forehead to wash but still have the red 130. It has had a major engine rebuild a few years ago and a professional external repaint due to fading etc. Hope you can find a good Cav as they are rare now and prices are creeping up but not to fast yet.

    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.
  10. Good luck in your search they are like hens teeth people tend to keep them long term, i have had mine 27 years almost.

    New guy

    Yes that foxed me on the 130 when i decided to fit a cat 1 alarm. In the end i had an auto sparks fit the alarm ( my knowledge of auto electrics on cars made after about 1970 is zero )and he had to find and fit an actuator to the drivers door so it would operate on remote.
  12. i was going to be just a day visitor but wont be coming due to current situation. As i will be 69 later in the year i am keeping away from all crowded areas including large supermarkets until next year.
  13. Ah another 130 saloon same colour as mine, i just love red 130 saloons. Genuine GM panels are on ebay, there was a genuine rear quarter for a saloon on there a few weeks ago for £130 was on for a while. There are other GM panels on there now at a price!!!. Mine is original apart from a rear quarter fitted in 1994 after white van man creased it (i paid betterment as i did not want the panel repaired just replaced) I am sure there are people on here who can advise for both genuine and pattern parts as there are a few excellent projects going on.
  14. Nice car love the colour, i like the two door hatch, as far as i am aware in the uk we only had the two door saloon for a short time and of course the two door convertable

    Yes, i have a red 130 saloon which i love to bits but have always liked the cdi saloon, just a shame they did not fit the 130 SEH engine in the cdi.
