Re: Using a Timing gun/light

I threw all of my old shitty timing guns and bought one of these. It’s got an internal battery so no need to look for a supply, and no supply leads to get tangled. Works first time, every time...

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.

Re: carb help please
