    Nice little runner, low mileage car on Copart if anyone was that way inclined.

    I was just browsing the listings and thought I'd share, being Tuesday morning and just over a day left to bid on it.

  • stubbs_gt replied to the topic Emissions in MGF/TF Pitstop
    180Pete,
    Honestly your post causes me stress on the leaking head gasket, you have three contained systems,

    Oilways, Could be leaking out or internally = medium risk leading to total failure if not backfilled with oil
    Coolant, Could be leaking out or internally = high risk leading to total failure if not back filled with coolant
    Combustion chamber, Could be leaking on combustion = bad and will get progressively worse

    The combustion chamber leak could interfere with the emissions
    The oil leak into combustion chamber could interfere with the emissions but you'd also get savage oil blow back if the engine is vent into the oil chambers
    The coolant into the combustion chamber would definitely cause emissions failure but you'd see a pressurized coolant system and smoke from the exhaust.

    The very knowledgeable people on here really need a bit more info to help you.

    But a starting point would definitely be the head gasket

  • Thats an incredible offer Robin, she's an interesting lady with the red interior.

    Anyone that breaks it for parts I'd love the dashboard passenger pocket.

    Hopefully you'll find someone that wants to drive it.

  • Great photos, be curious to hear what others think but worth checking ride height ?

    Looks low on the wheel arches to me

    Anyone else think that ?

    Lovely colour,

  • Yeah completely agree, but they do smaller diameter ones for motorbikes but along that theme.

  • I was also curious on this, I was thinking about this style which is commonly fitted to the land rovers.

    Has anyone done this before ?

  • stubbs_gt replied to the topic Wiper motor in MGF/TF Pitstop
    Wise words from the experienced guys on the forum, I took a moment and the orientation / mounting etc are the same as my right hand drive of a similar age.

    I recently replaced my motor as it was full of horrid rust water but also the magnets had fractured.

    If the motor is working I'd recommend you strip the thing of the car, take the black can of the motor and clean it all out. I suggest it might have fluid in, possibly of a rusty nature, if your lucky it might be savable along with a replacement upper mechanism.

    I was lucky to find a UK breaker that hadn't seen the prices creeping up on the motor.
