Re: '85 360 GLS

If you have access to such a device as a hoover that can deal with wet stuff (vax etc) then put a few gallons of fuel in the tank, agitate the tank violently and then stick the hoover nozzle in via the access/sender/pump/whatever hole and suck up all the liquid. Then use whatever proprietary sealing...

Are we sure this is an '83? Judging by the front wings and the bumpers it looks like an '86> to me.


Note for Mr Plaxton: I did not call it a Mk3!! :lol:

Re: '82 343 DLS: beyond the arctic circle

Is there any memorial to the brave 1932 sailors who lost their lives on 26th December 1943 when the Scharnhorst was sunk? Despite her being an 'enemy' ship I've always felt sorry for her crew and the noble way that they conducted themselves during the Battle of North Cape, and indeed throughout most...

Re: '85 360 GLS

On one of the Mk1's that Foggy owned that had also been stood for many a year we had a similar problem. Fuel was getting through but still no start. Upon investigation we found that although the old stale fuel was still in liquid form in the tank and the lines, it had turned into a horrible jelly li...

Re: '85 360 GLS

Put 10 litres into the tank of the GLT and top up with V Power (or equivalent). You'll still end up with about the same overall octane fuel in the tank and the £10 or so saved more than offsets the extra for the V Power. Or still fill up with normal fuel but add the old fuel in smaller quantities. O...

Re: Can this 109 live again?

if you actually had a 300 you could test it for me. I would go out an buy one specifically for such a purpose but, to be honest, I probably live too far from you for practical purposes. I'd suggest you try and find someone more local to you. You could do with finding some gullible old sod in the Ne...

Re: with an '82 343 DLS to the Oktoberfest in Erfurt

Last I heard was that Umweltzones aren't policed by cameras so it's only if you actually get pulled that you'll have a problem. i got pulled once in Dusseldorf but that was only because the Polizei wanted to chat about my car (I was in my v8 Merc...). They said nothing about pumping nasty gases at a...

Re: MCHUDD IS LOUVRED AGAIN.

Regardless of any incompetence or inefficiencies with the NCT booking system let us at least be grateful that there is such a thing as the NCT. Having lived there before the NCT was introduced it was very alarming to see cars in everyday use that should have been condemned years before. I was laughe...

Ah! Suddenly it's all clear.

You failed to give us a crucial piece of information in your original post, thus leading to confusion :P

Re: Can this 109 live again?

As a total beginner to the world of these odd fixed jet carburettors I will admit to being slightly perplexed as to why, when this particular carb type thing is described as a 32DIR Type101, the thread title asks whether this '109' will live again. Has it mysteriously gained 8 somethings? Was it ori...
