    Delco-Moraine ABS Deletion

    Tim, please e-mail as in my previous post, and I will respond.
  2. Pan, ProAlloy made me a more efficient charge-cooler heat exchanger, it seems to work well. Maybe have a look at their website, although I see the one they’re selling now has put got the same pipes as my prototype version. You can probably see it on my refurb thread somewhere. Jonwat - A word about water injection into turbos, we used to mix a chemical called Rochem RACC with water, and spray it into the turbo inlets on our marine diesels to clean the tracts and blades. The mechanical impinging of the droplets and chemical mixture was the key. Made the engines cough a bit, but it certainly did the job, and as far as I know, condensation wasn’t an issue. That said, the Esprit turbos are much smaller, so things may be different with them.

    Cafe racer

    Old mate of mine bought a BSA A65 cafe racer in about 1975.. I recall it had quite a deep but narrow GRP fuel tank, and a GRP rear fairing. First time on the pillion, he dropped the clutch and left me dumped in the middle of the road on my arse. Second time he was a bit more careful, and we had a thoroughly enjoyable ride, bloody noisy, smelly, hot (the bike, not my mate), but I loved the experience and love the look of these what I suppose were low-budget customs. This bike was a move upmarket after his previous CZ 125 pos.

    Agree with you ref BoJo and JRM. Dangerous men, the pair of them.

    Yes, it’s 100ml. Top-ups get charged as such!

    Lotus at 70: the highs and lows

    That has to be one of the worst colours I’ve ever seen on any car, any time. What’s it called, “Puke”?

    Viz Top Tip:- Move to the far south of the country, thus saving yourself the need for winter tyres.

    Lotus at 70: the highs and lows

    Having asked the font of all car knowledge sat next to me with rum and coke in hand, I am informed that Princess Anne owned 8 Scimitars, one of which was the same green colour as hers. Having broached the subject, I have now received another verbal warning for selling it.

    Lotus at 70: the highs and lows was the wife’s favourite car and she was very upset indeed when I sold it, and she still reminds me from time to time?

    How is your punctuation

    5/7. I shall attempt to include the word ‘interrobang’ into my next monthly report to the board of directors, and watch as they nod sagely when in reality they won’t have a clue what I’m on about.
