You got Shakey fixed as a backup though RJB.?
No mate, rear subframe bushes are shot and it looks like one off the front wheels is bent, but i,ll drive it if i cant get the tiv running

Let me know how you get on Raffa, depending on the size required I might be able to knock you an adaptor up to suit a more common thread size? or have you tried ebay we buy all sorts of oddball threaded items from there :thumbsup
Cheers Simon, i got one mate thanks, but £22.00 for one fitting and hopefully it should be here tomorrow

fingers crossed fella... great work so far mate :)
Cheers Gus

Fingers crossed Ralph. Will be nice to see trevor....:thumbsup
yeah Steve, i wont have time to sort the wiring out but be nice to give it a run out, lets see mate, fingers crossed

Hope you get it sorted mate, the petrol powered plastic firehazzard sounds a hell of a lot safer than shakey! :eek
There's not alot to choose between the 2 really, i just need to ensure when i fit the fuel hose's on the tiv they dont leak:thumbsup and shakey needs the rear sub frame drop and some powerflex bushes installed, not a bad job about 2 hours to complete, but i dont have the time this weekend mate

That could be another problem Bill, as both cars have little or no fuel, guy at the shell petrol station said he is getting a delivery tonight, so hopefully i can get some tomorrow, as all over petrol stations where i live are closed:jaw-dropping

I know what your going through mate, the works Astra has both front wheel bearings destroyed and the noise at 40mph is unbelievable, can't hear the engine at all and forget the radio!

Will be lush to finally get out in the TVR this weekend(its a long one too :D ), providing the weather is fine!
Did you manage to get a discount on the pump since they fooked you about?
