  1. After having the chassis jet washed,and given the underside a check through to see what rot is there underside_vid21.mp4
  2. A day off and time to play. Installed the transmission oil cooler and standard radiator. All is fine and dandy at the moment. Driven it home and no issues. Although she was a bugger to start,seemed like the starter drained the battery. I used jump leads using the battery from Sierra
  3. Turns out that I need a rad for an auto box application, as it is plumbed in. I might consider a remote oil cooler, instead of it being integral
  4. I'm afraid I did run it, as I was on the M6, and the hard shoulder was cordoned off by road works for the smart motorway. It was a rapid decision to make, to avoid stopping in a live lane. I found a gap between the concrete barrier, that had cones. Fortunately, there was just enough of a gap. I thought that I was going to clout one. Any commendations on a standard radiator? On ebay, there's one for £134,which actually has a photo of it
  5. And the spark plugs. Right to left is 1 2 3 and 4
  6. Here you gang. Looks like I need a new radiator VID_20191212_145710.mp4
  7. I've not had the time since I have put in my lockup,work gets in the way 😁 I might go up before I start work at 5pm. I'll need to put some oil and water in and do a comp test.
  8. if you are getting a spark at the time it cuts out,see if the mechanical pump is delivering
  9. Thanks for your empathy,it's the love of Classics that makes us tolerant. No froth in the oil cap radiator is empty,wasn't when I left.. Yes,it'll get pampered,with a new head gasket I assume. Once the head comes off,I shall see. Got back at 3:30am 😁
  10. Thanks. Just a bit of aggro. Broke down at 18:30 and recovery will be with me at 1:30 😁
  11. Hello all, driving back to Manchester on the M6 in my new purchase, then suddenly...pop! and from what I could see in the dark, in the rear view mirror, a cloud of smoke....headgasket do you reckon? VID_20191209_224727.mp4
  12. ....worth mentioning,just in case
  13. I remember seeing one on ebay about 3 years ago,I was tempted
  14. the engine has either a Weber 2V DFTM or a Weber VV TLD,so it's mechanical pump which might be the issue
  15. Is it a CFI or a carburettor engine?
