  • You have probably done this but have you checked anti roll bars and drop links, I had a Lound klong a few years ago and found a drop link at fault but it too a good bit of levering to find it, even then I was sceptical but it was said drop link.

  • I'm afraid it sounds very much like HGF speaking from experience those symptoms were exactly the same as mine, gradually getting worse until on the cool down cycle small amounts of coolant was making its way into no4 cylinder cause mis fire on starting.

  • Steve replied to the topic "16 wheels TF in MGF/TF Pitstop

    Hi, any one know if "16 hairpin alloys will fit with 2 pot callipers and 304mm discs.
    thanks Barry.

    No they are deeper than the four pot, you would need quite big spacers, I personally don't like spacers I feel it alters the geometry to much but only my opinion.

  • Materials used in new cats are cheaper (nor precious metal) and therefore cheaper, if you buy one a I did look for a guarantee, mine came with 2 years so I can can change it every 2 years for almost 8 years without loss but I'm sure that won't be the case, by the way the one I bought are also badged as MG Rover oem by the like of Rimmers at a premium, and by the way you can buy replacement flanges to weld on if you are so inclined but if you existing is salvageable and able to be welded it could eventually collapse inside and become worthless.

  • My solution was to buy an aftermarket klarius Cat from mgfntfbitz for£120 and sell my old leaky cat to a scrap merchant for £760, problem solved, also means I cashed in before the scrotes stole it.

  • How do I find them?

    Simon

    Just Google MG Rover mobile mechanics, MG Rover Solutions, Rough Luck Racing, all are mobile and cover the UK, they are way cheaper than a fixed garage mechanic and are all experts on the K series but because of thus they do get booked up so don't expect next day service but if they are I your area you may be lucky, I have used Rough Luck and MG Mobile and can recommend both.

  • Steve replied to the topic Soft top woes... in MGF/TF Pitstop
    I used brasso on mine and it came up really clear although with all the heavy handling the stitching I was un aware was going rotten and the screen came adrift so all the effort was wasted so I found a glass screen and fitted that instead.

  • I think Electric will be an option or maybe but a lot of work is ongoing with carbon neutral combustion fuels several companies have ICE testing (in the motorcycle world Ducati are already testing one) Co2 is extracted from the air mixed with Hydrogen to form a Hydrocarbon fuel (Not a chemist so please excuse simple explanation) and when the fuel is burned Co2 is expelled but the exact amount that was put in so carbon neutral, there is also of course Hydrogen cell to produce electricity and these are getting smaller, the problem being the Hydrogen supply and how to safely fill your vehicle, so until we are in Mad Max territory I will be sticking to Dinosaur juice. :-)

  • Ask yourself why an absolute stranger would want to buy a car overseas, have it stored for 2 years at a cost which will out way any appreciation of a classic car, then pay again to have it transported to his home with only photographs and emails, he has to pay you so you give him all of your banking and personal detail where as you have none of his !!!, sorry but you are getting reeled in hook line and sinker, tell him unfortunately you suspect the head gasket is starting to give way, bet he is still interested, give him an IBAN number as Roverlike suggests, all of a sudden interest would be lost, sell your car in this country come spring it will be snapped up, don't get mugged.
