  1. I use super unleaded E5 all the time. Pleasure comes at a price. Having said that I couldn't tell you what the price is !! The only one I look at is diesel for the Kuga.
  2. the last time I saw Willy was in 2013 when our paths crossed competing in the Rallye Costa Brava. Here is a picture from that event relaxing with a drink and Willy dispensing some advice to a young lady !

  3. What rallye was that Iain ? Any pictures and a report ?
  4. Sounds slightly more complicated than my ball joint. I have used Moss for years and now you can order and have it shipped from France. SC parts also except that's from Germany. They did a good price on all the bits for the suspension. For speed I used Betaset, who seem to be well regarded here.
  5. The problem is, who can be trusted nowadays?
  6. That looks like the original..
  7. Yes, it is #13. It is mounted OK , but the fact is with the nut and washer provided , it couldn't have been done. I appreciate a nyloc nut would sort it but it wasn't supplied with one. Regarding the grease nipple, I agree that to swap would be easy if you had a smaller threaded nipple. But the thread was useless when trying to put the original back in. I bought these in France from a french outlet rather than my usual orders in Germany from SC Parts.
  8. I have just finished an overhaul of the TR3A front suspension. I imagine most parts come from the same place although they are sold by different companies. The top ball joints would not bolt into the upper wishbones, sufficiently to get the split pin in. On checking, the threaded part is shorter and the hole further away from the top. The only way was to use a thinner washer and the old castellated nuts which I discovered had the castellations more profond than the new ones. And as if that wasn't enough, I took out the new grease nipple to replace it with the right a
  9. Have you got a link for the company selling these clocks ?
  10. You could try the British Car Forum (American) Someone may know the car.
  11. Lovely car. Thanks for sharing the history.
  12. I doubt that there are lots of people producing theses parts so, if for example you ordered from SC Parts it would be the same ? Hopefully just one bad item, but it still shouldn't have got through.
  13. Thanks. I don't know if they have an outlet in France I'll check. Have to buy in France/Europe now after the Brexit changes.
  14. Having suffered a puncture (and a coil failure) during a rallye this weekend I thought it would be a good moment to change the tyres. I'll change the tubes as well as I don't know how old they are. So, the question. I see that the Michelin 15E (valve oblique) are available at around 24€. Not sure how that compares with what you have in the UK. What other makes have you tried?
