Re: What would you buy & why?

My speculative guess for future electric power is something akin to today's fossil fuel. You drive for a given distance, two or three hundred miles, pull into a garage, lift out your batteries and replace them with charged batteries, pay your money and off you go. It sounds fanciful now, but how fa...

Re: What would you buy & why?

They haven't really thought this through. Just work out the power needed to charge a car in ten minutes and the infrastructure needed to support it. Probably written by some journalist with an arts degree.

Re: Sunbeam Alpine cough

You seem to have tried all the usual things. Is there something in the fuel tank that's intermittently partially blocking the outlet so it's not getting enough fuel under load?

How nice to hear from you again John. I was beginning to think you had been kidnapped by the goblins, along with Terry. I wonder what's happened to Rich?

Re: Trafficators with flashing indicators

It really depends on how the flashers were wired, but the normal way is to connect the flasher unit input to ignition live and feed the output via the switch. You can't use the switch output for the semaphores because this would be flashing and it would also overload the flasher unit, so the diagram...

Re: clio diesel

When I had a problem with my late lamented Citroen C5 I bought a knock-off of the official Citroen device for £85 on eBay. It did all Peugeots and Citroens from 1997 onwards. May be worth investing in if you're going to stick to those marques.

I mean, I had the temerity to turn the ignition key and sta...

Re: What would you buy & why?

He chopped it in for a Chrysler 2.0ltr :shock: Yep, I could quite go for a Six 8-) I've owned a couple of six cylinder "wedges" and loved the six-cylinder engine. The clutch change was a very easy job which you could do without removing the engine or gearbox, unlike the four pot counterparts, a ver...

Re: Glasses..

He's to be found on the Jowett stand at NEC shows, carrying out impeccable restoration work. I must say, having spoken to him, he's not the least bit grumpy.
