  1. I tried two of the "normal" suppliers and both were way off. However my car did have a new heritage shell so maybe they chose a shade lighter when that was sprayed Maybe better to take the car or a body part to a local paint supplier and get them to knock up a can for you kc
  2. Here is the link, very useful kc

  4. Agree with what has been said, fuel flow and prefilter kc
  5. It is probably the solenoid sticking, It may have just stuck or it could be time for a new starter if it happens repeatedly At least you know the cure. kc

Went back for retest and it was still 5.9%, very friendly helpful French MOT man then waited for 40 minutes while minor adjustments made till eventually a reading of 3.5% and a karate kick to the machine to save the data got the result we needed (it is also "under 4.5%" in France) I think that now I have my new MOT valid for5 years it may need tweaking up a litt

    PI emissions

    My 1973 TR6 Injection failed its French MOT due to excessive emissions. The injectors were all refurbed about 3 years ago and the car runs and pulls really well. Is there a way of adjusting the emissions, even a temporary fix to get the MOT and then I can "restore" it to normal? kc
  13. Pleased it was easily resolved kc
