dbimplematic - you are helping to set the sale up and are driving it to the sale site yourself - this sounds like heaven. 1 - when you get to the sale site, let the tyres down. 2 - take a gallon of old engine oil to blather around all the known oil leak areas on a leyland, thinking about oil leaks o...

It never ceases to amaze me at car auctions what people pay for some cars(without any test drive that is) and I think this is the same with farm sales/dispersal sales. Nearly £3200 (inc Vat) is crazy money for the 71 880 unless their was something really special about it. Problem is with more and...

My approach to this is if it goes to auction its going to make £500 minimum and provided its still ok and running in 3/5 years time its still worth £500 minimum - if you were to put it on e-bay would certainly make more than that - make an offer and get it bought (thats the car trader coming o...

Seamus, Haven`t bothered flushing the tank - hopefully most of it is now out - will keep an eye on the guaze and clean if she gets more gunge in and change the filters in a couple of weeks. ANY HELP THOUGH - when I take the glass bowl off diesel comes thru from the tank - is there a fuel tap shut of...

Hi Seamus, I know just how you feel - went on the Pennine road run yesterday. Being law abiding(ish) siphoned out the duty free/ribena on saturday and filled my 72 990 with white. Problem was when siphoning I obviously disturbed 36 years of gunge and the bottom of the tank with the pipe which then s...

RE: A smokey 1390

Hi Seamus, I am a car trader and a local garage/test station of mine has suggested this on cars which do the same thing and he swears by it - as long as its a big tank (ie you do not want to have 1 gallon petrol to 6 gallon diesel). The other thing I swear by is Millers Diesel Power Plus which is an...

Hi Scooby, wish I had known it was made up of several pieces!!! - I had the said item shotblasted as one item - went to collect it from the shotblasters at 3.30pm and the only guy there must have been in his 70`s so thought this can`t be a problem all I have to do is lift it from the pallet and put ...

Phil - my advice is to leave the rad guard where it is - the last time I lifted one of those it cost me a fortune at a sports injury specialist to get my back in order!!! - No offence Scooby its just the white 990 in the photo is mine thats been restored by Phil`s Dad and I know to my peril how much...
