Re: Ebay - "Today I Mostly Bought...."

A rather nice gold (y coloured) Raketa circa 1070's with a dark blue tv screen shaped dial, and day/date window in cyrillic. All the way from Lithuania (took about a week) and cost the grand price of 5.50. oh and a videoscope for the kids

Re: Today I mostly .....

Hi Simon, it's the 1.6 and yes the rear lambda is an aftermarket generic make (yellow packet is the best I could say) not an NGK which is what Mr Garage recomended after I got the other one! Clearing crud out of the exhaust sounds promising but the whole system is only a year old (but a year with fa...

Re: Today I mostly .....

ouch not nice. The absence of a car which is working for more than 10-15 miles without a misfire is of course I can't get to see the Riva down the road and I need the money to spend on a replacement for the Zafira so a sort of double blow too. Yours sounds worse though.

Re: Today I mostly .....

Sorry, Happiness Stan is from a Small Faces record (Ogdens Nut Gone Flake in case you're wondering). I was a bit worried that all the springs were gone or something. After browsing this forum I would be happy to take the engine on (within reason), there is enough knowledge on here to fill a book. I ...

Re: Today I mostly .....

They are good advisories, one of my last ones was, "child seat in rear so rear seatbelts untested" at which point I decided they were pretty subjective to the tester and his/her state of mind and decided to ignore them. But I should watch out if I were you that fluffy seatbelt sounds dangerous.......

Re: Today I mostly .....

Thanks for the advice all :) it appears that the number one cylinder was misfiring, spark plug checked and changed and the coil pack tightened up. (the theory is that when the coil was replaced it wasn't attached firmly at that end and the connection was too loose for the plug to spark properly). Th...

Re: Today I mostly .....

Theres a socket just behind the hand brake, I'm not to sure of the shape and number of pins, I'd go out and have a look but it's raining really really hard rght now. From memory it looks similar but I will check it out before any buying. Cheers for the tip.
