    However it's all irrelevant for now, as I have...

    Stoneleigh is a NO! Loud ticking noise from engine, thought it might have been the cam lifters, so I changed some over from another engine I have, but now it sounds like the engine is eating itself,...

    Re: A house for the Nova owner who has everything

    It lacks any kind of charm, I like houses with charm, I suppose I've been spoilt by oak beams, leaded windows, and 15th Century construction!
    And surely a Nova belongs on a drive outside a house of...

    Ghastly, it looks like an office I used to work in. In fact it looks like a lot of the 1960's concrete office buildings that have been updated by painting the concrete.

    Yes Dave you will find out that whether you pass or fail all you get is a rather bland piece of white paper, even the advisories are on the same A4 sheet. As my MOT man said, its just a receipt now...

    Re: 6.3 mm spade terminals

    Maplins do 4.8 and the smaller ones.
    Ebay no good, need to get them today or tomorrow, must be a physical shop.
    I'm ringing around motor factors, and no-one seems to stock them

    6.3 mm spade terminals

    Is there somewhere (a physical shop) that sells 6.3 mm spade connectors (female). I can order these from RS Components, but in 100's and I need 2 - £7 is a lot of money for 2 terminals! Most places I...

    Tyre pressures done (yes they were in the low 20's) and I will take it in to sort out the tracking. The alternator is the problem now. I won't get to Stoneleigh on battery power :)
