  1. Sounds like you are making great progress! Are you any further forward with it?
  2. ... 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!! πŸ˜† 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.

  13. Hi all New to the forum and to mk2 Cavalier ownership though my dad had one eons ago.
