Re: New Owner

Repeating what the others have said, welcome to the forum. I can understand your wish to avoid a rusting car. I understand the Mk1 MR2 was bad for rusting.

Car SOS

I was watching a recording of the Car SOS where they restore a FIAT Dino. In it, Tim takes the seats to Bespoke Leathering in Tamworth. In the workshop, just behind where he talks to the boss, is a white Excel SE, registration ending in HEM.

Anyones on here?

Re: Another timing belt question

Interesting reply, Tim. Does it mean that my 1988 Excel belt change interval is 3 years/36,000 miles unless it's definitely a T104RB or an HSD belt?

Re: Another timing belt question

I watched the Harry's Garage episode on his Testarossa the other day. He said that it's recommended to change its belts every so many miles or every 2 years but most owners, because of the low miles they do, change them every 3 or 4 years which I though was interesting.

The medium works for me especially we don't need to see fine detail but, rather, the concept.

Re: First job jobbed - 2 more found !!!

Very neat. Like you say, another one off the list. How many have been added since you finished the squab? It's sometimes difficult to complete jobs quicker than adding jobs.

Fill plug size

One of my output shafts seals is leaking. Before I set about changing it, I thought it wise to check that the oil fill plug will come out as I've read that they can seize. After spending some time fiddling about, I still am not sure what size the plug is or, more accurately, what size spanner I need...

Re: Elite fuel filler caps etc

I think Jaguar XJs didn't run vented caps but had a vent pipe that went up the D-post and back down again.

I imagine they would be fine on a Europa.
