Re: Low tax car, van mpv that can carry a scooter.

Thanks Tony, do they seats come out easily, clips or bolts? Is insurance and tax cheap on these? The rear seats come out individually and they’re fitted in with a latch so very quick to put them in/out leaving a completely flat load area. I pay £50/month on insurance but my NCD is on something else...

Fiat Multipla

Questionable looks but cheap as chips with a 3+3 layout. My GP goes straight in with the back seats out.

The Main jet is irrelevant to low down running.

Re: carb help please

Check the float height if you haven’t already as quick and zero cost.

If it’s wrong, once corrected, check the needle height and main jet size as these might have been adjusted to compensate.

Re: Lacking performance at top end

If it’s overheated previously and it now runs crisp with what seems like a bigger MJ than needed, it sounds like an air leak - maybe establish everything’s absolutely sealed and then see how it runs.
I find using carb cleaner to check/find leaks is super quick and efficient.

Re: 5 Gears for 500 Quid

I’d be interested in seeing how they all actually compare on the gearing calculator..number of teeth etc? Same or different to Cyclone, MB and the Tino Satchi one that Robbo is selling ? I've just uploaded a fresh version of the Visualiser with both versions added and some additional tweaks. https:...

Powder Coating in London and the South East?

Hi,

Any tried and trusted recommendations?

Ideally London/South East, but could be tempted to venture into Essex!

Thanks in advance,

Re: Dave Webster

Awful news. Hope he's comfortable and gives it a bloody good fight. I can't really claim to have raced him though we shared the same track in the 80s, and his book was one of many I read cover to cover many times. It was good to see him at Donington a few years back, and he was as honest, funny and ...
