  1. Cheers guys, I think he is gonna sell, just needs a kick up the backside to make a decision.
  2. My mate is thinking of selling his MK1, any ideas what it would be worth? Its a 4 door with a 1700 crossflow on bike carbs, 5 speed, Peter Lloyd exhaust. spax springs and shox, single de-cambered leafs. Really solid in the right places doesn't need any welding, a couple of bubbles starting on the doors, needs a general tidy. Any ideas?
  3. Has anyone had any issues with H&H distributors retarding themselves, Mine keeps retarding itself over a couple of weeks. The distributor isnt moving and the drive pulley is still timed the same as the cam pulley, so the only way it can retard is internally. Any ideas?
  4. Cheers matey, I'm not desperate at the moment, but if I need it then I'll let you know .
  5. Might need a dial gauge and stuff then, close is better than guess!
