Love this thread.

Why?

Cos it is the sort of plan that crosses my mind, before the voice on the other shoulder kicks in (let alone the wife).

Seeing how straightforward it is for someone with time, garage, tools and knowledge)
I just know how much 'trouble' I'd get into.

Crack on, Dave (y)

Sadly it's only a 5.0 litre, one day I'll get me mitts on a 55 Kompressor Motor for it ;)

Heeeeeee Heeeeeee Heeeeeee ?
There's a genetic cross over somewhere.
You think like me, with the difference that you actually crack on with it.

I'm just happy to have the 55 back.

Lol, my V8 Conversion days started and ended with dropping Rover lumps into Mantas and Capris .. dis is a whole different ball-game and it's important for a man (or woman) to know his (or her) limitations o_O :p
Pre all the computers, I suspect.
Some of those lumps ended up in trikes.

V8 Capri? That made me smile. Loved my Capri, even when it was trying to kill me.

With you on the bolt rant, Dave.

MB is naughty too.

Remove 171 battery. All 10mm EXCEPT the bolt at base of holder!

You do wonder where they got their design credentials.
(Oh, look! We have thousands of xmm nuts and bolt. Best find somewhere to stick them then)
I could help them with that! Grr!

With you on tyres too.
When folks say this is the best tyre, it really means best compromise for their ownership and pocket.
No point putting well sticky tyres on when you don't use performance.
Ditto with rock hard, long life tyres when you do use performance (unless you enjoy slidies all the time).

Hey, news!
10th storm of the year en route.
That's more than one/week.
No wonder I go fence chasing!

Eigh, you keep that up and you'll have me speak'n like a Brit!!
Already drive'n a German car now for gods sake! :rolleyes: ;)
If you cope with old, not politically correctness..
Look up The Goodies - Black Pudding Bertha on utube.

Meanwhile, safe but Brit


And a reet northern Ripping Yarn.

Looking good fella.

Your exhaust issue is amongst the reasons I sometimes carry
bailing wire & gaffa tape (Never use gaffa on hot parts - smokey smokey).

If I am doing the remote lanes, they serve as a get out of jail fix.
No phone and at least not stranded.

Need to examine my calendar closely soon (y)
