  1. Yes thanks I think I might go for the early manual tensioner or get an overhaul kit for the automatic tensioner .I'm a recently retired mechanic so I'm fairly sure The tension is OK. Thanks Clive.
  2. Hi all. My Elite 504 on over run my cam belt chatters against the belt guard on the long side, exhaust cam to crank pulley. The belt is not old but the tensioner is so if the tensioner is week will that cause it ? Is the early belt tensioner better than the later one? Thanks for any advice Clive
  3. Hi Dion. As far as I know this not normal is there any sign of it ever been hit at the rear. I have owned three Elites over the years and have never seen it. All the best Clive
  4. Hi Chris. Thanks for your help. i have got it sorted now. Got a five year old to sort it lol. And yes Monaco white is the best colour. All the best Clive
  5. Hi Chris thanks for the reply. I purchased a proper gaming pc so it should be good enough. I live in a caravan on the land of a friend so i have very limited wifi. Thats the only reason for not downloading the sim. i will go for a screen shot. Im not the sharpest tool in the toolbox but i will try. Thanks Clive
  6. Hi all. Is there anyone else on here that has Microsoft flight sim 2020? I have the ten disc standard edition. Disc one loads fine but when i try to load disc two i get a message asking for a destination . I would have thought as disc one loaded ok it should have gone to that destination . I have tried several ways of getting to load . Have you ever tried to contact Microsoft. DONT BOTHER Thanks to anyone that can help.
  7. Might be worth just checking your cam timing as it's poss that the belt can jump a tooth or two when the engine backfires. only on the square tooth belt though. It did happen to mine so now have the later round tooth belt and wheels.
  8. Not sure i can make it now. First one i will have missed for ages.
  9. I should be there as things stand at the moment.
  10. Sorry you are to you are not old enough.
  11. What about pro flex from wicks Cheap and the direction i'm looking at.
  12. Hi Ant . Soft focus makes all things look good. 70s film trick for fading divas.
  13. Good night. One Eclat, one Elite, one Elise. Two new members.
  14. Fast estate like the 70s M50 Elite. 😜
