  1. Annoyingly the engine management light has come on this morning after being winterised. Was supposed to be taking it to the MOT station. Any ideas and which is a good odb2 reader and app for the lotus and my BMWs? TIA Chris

    mine will be available in a month or so. Just getting turbos and clutch refurb
  4. I’m with Ovo Energy for leccy only. My contract was 100% renewable. When I quizzed them about the 3 fold increase when on 100% renewable they told me it was the large corporates just force profiteering on the population for being susceptible to covid and hitting their profits last year. #paybacktime
  5. how many jabs are they expecting us to have a year. I am pro vaccination but this is getting ridiculous.
  6. When our 16 year old daughter caught it in July we did not banish her either. After all it must have been a little scary. We still cuddled and reassured her. We never knowingly caught it.
  7. what does gall mean? Sorry to be a numpty.
  8. Yes you’re right. I’ve also found them on SJSports cars site for a little less.
  9. What about these Aerotight nuts
  10. I’m not suggesting buying the cheapest but £48 for 8 nuts seems nuts!
  11. Excellent thx mike. I have a 2 post lift so should be fairly easy.
  12. I’ve had a look but can’t see any threads within pictures showing how to remove the tanks on V8. I have the engine out so thought I should check them. Any have any pictures or a thread which I’ve missed? Thx Chris
  13. Yes they’re the ones i was talking about. Very expensive for a nut. Was hoping might be available elsewhere cheaper. Do you know the size at all? thx
  14. Anyone know the nut size for the Turbos to manifold? Don’t really want to spend nearly £48 on 8 nuts! and where I can get some at a resonance cost? thx
  15. Just got the Turbos back from Turbo dynamics. Excellent job. Thx to @mike_sekinger for the recommendation
  16. Looks like it just pops out after removing the the knobs? Someone did a poor paint job on mine. Mine's a manual.
  17. Ok I need a little happy from a bright spark. The SPH-DA130 is in and all working apart from the rear camera. I have connected the phono and the reverse cable. However the radio does not open the camera screen when I select reverse. I have checked the reverse wire and it appears to be connected correctly. Any ideas? Thanks
  18. is there anywhere that sells new flywheels for the V8?
  19. Ok engine and gearbox now out. Clutch and fly wheel have heat spots. Fly wheel looks to have been machined at least once already. Can it be done again and should the bolt mounts have been machine down too to keep the pressure the same?
  20. Sadly in a divorce everyone looses
  21. It's a very complicated situation not least because of the covid factor. Which I suspect is having a greater impact than brexit
  22. I have a full set of new calipers and pads for sale.
