Re: V5 Issue

I suggest you return the V5 to DVLA with a covering letter and supply a photo of the whole frame number.
Expect hassle, if you don't get any, result !!

Re: Frame numbers

The Spanish font is way different from the Italian and is an easy spot. The frame will also have an extra gusset holding the engine mount.
If you don't like/want it because it's Spanish? I'll take it off your hands ;)

Re: MOT ofter SORN ??

If your vehicle is 'Historic' That means 40 years old (or more) It is exempt from the MOT system.
It doesn't matter where it has come from.
When applying for tax, you may be asked to make a MOT exemption declaration.
Simples.

Re: electronic ignition... no spark

Johhny650 You think I was having a dig. I wasn't. In answer too your 5 points 1) Every 12v flywheel I've ever seen the magnets have been epoxy glued. 2)I said "risk" 3)I've bent 'em and it's fixed the issue. You think this is a "bodge" but you don't think putting card under the magnets is ! 4)Disagr...

Re: electronic ignition... no spark

I'm glad you (seem) to have resolved the issue. But those magnets are usually fixed with epoxy glue and a screw, for very good reason. Plus you have now moved them closer to all the coils, running a risk of fouling. You could have just gently bent the fingers up, they will take a gentle tweak. I wou...

In Sticky's book you will find "MB's simplified wiring loom drawing for a 12v conversion"
If you don't have Sticky's book? You should get it.

Re: Li150 seized. What do you think.

Don't get hung up on fully synth oil. You really don't need it for a standard 150. My point was not about "getting hung up" on any particular oil. It was; did he remember to put ANY in the fuel (which it seems he did) Don't get hung up on any particular oil, but use fully synthetic eh? Not that you...

Re: Li150 seized. What do you think.

dragoonpvw Sadly on forums such as this, when someone offers advice, someone else comes along and contradicts it. It really doesn't help when someone such as yourself is seeking assistance. In the end you'll have to read it all and decide for yourself which advice to take. P.S. Fitting a new rod/bea...
