Replaced my old VIS motors with new ones from Mat Price.


Then removed them again to fit the seals...I didn't really like the 3000rpm idle speed without them


4 spare motors now to get repaired.


And washed'n'waxed her of course

Had 2 new tyres on the front of Copperleaf, all 4 changed now changed. Old ones still had 3mm left, but showing signs of perishing although DOT codes ok until June.

Changed engine oil. Only done around 3000 miles, but mot due next month. Wanted to change the gearbox oil, but due to me taking my time, it did not get done. Vacuumed the car yesterday and gave the interior a bit of a scrape.

Cool

Kept the local petrol station in business after putting £65’s worth of go go juice in the Bear. Be enough for tomorrow’s trip to a breakfast meet near Newquay.

Quite a busy one today, did a T4 for a local member this morning, nipped to the scrapyard to grab some bits, fitted a few engine bits to my diesel and got is started for the first time in over 12 Months

Replaced the undertray on the 1.8 following a replacement thermostat, then fitted a pair of droplinks for another member.

Hey Andy, We don't have scrapyards in Norfolk, only vehicle recycling centres!

And some very good ones too, especially when a brand new corteco pulley was sitting next to a 75 already removed!
