Me too! You gotta love a standard car. :)

Was just thinking the other day - its about time the oil was changed in this. On arrival at my unit this afternoon, I caught sight of an empty ramp next door! An opportunity like this cannot be wasted - so I quickly got the job done before the chance was gone.



Had another good look about for any leaks - all is good still!



One day I'm gonna get me a two poster all to myself:)

I think one of the front wheel bearings is starting to grumble - but that can wait for now. Gave it a clean and took some pictures instead!     :)




No space in my unit to work on this until my current restoration is complete.  :-\

Finally got round to wheel bearing replacement at the weekend. Because it's only been together for a couple of years (and copper grease was used) it came apart very easily.





New bearing pressed in


 
Job done



Other side still to do!



The other side isn't noisy, but I like to replace things in pairs. :)

Still getting occasional use out of this from time to time.





It really is a shame that I don't get to use it more. I've been thinking about selling it, but I know I'd regret it soon afterwards.

Let me know if you want to sell, I'd be interested. Even if it's years from now!

I can't see it happening, but I'll bear you in mind chief.  8)
Bit of a milestone rolled round the other day -

Having shat an ecu and a hall sensor in the last couple of years, I got off lightly this year as only a wheel bearing has needed replacing.
Once given its annual wax polish, service and MOT, it got a decent few days use before being laid up for the Winter.

Treated this to a good bit of attention recently. Load compensator valve, in tank pump, radiator plus cam belt and water pump were all replaced.

Finally changed the post 2001 number plates for something more age appropriate.  8)
