Re: B Reg MK2 360 Saloon

Beam centring seems okay now. :) Outside temp has dropped a bit recently and the car is getting hard to start in the morning. I reckon this might be something to do with either the thermal time switch or the cold start injector. I'll test the injector tonight and the switch when I find my multimeter.

Re: Is it worth a swap f3p

I'm putting an F3R in mine (2.0 8v).
They are injection standard but I'll be running bike carbs on mine.
I don't really think the F3P would be worth the effort.

Re: B Reg MK2 360 Saloon

Cheers Ride_On, I'll take the torque arm/tramp bar/stabiliser bar, whatever you call it off and then centre the axle. I'm not planning on fitting shortened dampers any time soon, this is fine for now to be honest! The ride in my 340 is bone rattling and it has the same, cut springs, standard (albeit...

Re: B Reg MK2 360 Saloon

Nah what I mean is, the wheels don't centre in the wheel arch. I think I need to shorten the torque arm a bit because I can't seem to get the axle in the middle of the spring on that side. I didn't have this problem on my 340, I loosened off the torque arm and it moved to the end of the slot, which ...

Re: B Reg MK2 360 Saloon

Ride is okay on this, considering I just cut the front springs.
I wish I had kept those springs, I've just cut two coils off the front :lol:
Those springs I sold you were fine on my 340 with standard shocks anyway.

I'm having some issues with rear beam centring on this, hopefully it's not bent!

Re: B Reg MK2 360 Saloon

Cool, cheers for the tips man.
I'll give it a service shortly and sort out a few niggles.
There's a couple of strange noises but since it's my only working car at the moment I can't afford to be stripping bits off to find out why.
I'll sort the 340 and then give this a good look over underneath.

No problem, the body looks a lot nicer than any of the 300 series I've owned/own.

Re: One owner 1989 340GL 1.7 for sale

Very fair price for what looks like a nice example, and has obviously been well cared for.
I wish you luck with the sale but not sure you'll need it.

Re: Struts, headlights, grill, screenwash bottle.

Will keep you posted man, as usual if you want it all I can knock a wedge off.
Posted struts with discs and calipers before, slightly* understated the weight but it got there :lol:

Re: B Reg MK2 360 Saloon

It's a GLE Injection model and is a UK car.
I think it's probably the ISV as I thought it got better when the car warmed up - but it doesn't!
The gear change seems okay after actually driving it on the road!
