Re: 6.9 # 7114 - it lives !

The lorikeet, showing no sympathy, simply walked away. Me ? I let go with some expletives which, as a rule, is not my wont. Blood everywhere, but I survived it all and today it's becoming something...

Re: 6.9 # 7114 - it lives !

Yes Mark, it knocked me around a fair bit. Step up with right leg which basically collapsed under me on account of a bad hip, and over I went without any control on my part. Very reminiscent of an...

Re: 6.9 # 7114 - it lives !

After a bit of a nasty fall today, sleep has been a bit hard to come by. Well, it really has nothing to do with Craig's thread, but I took the opportunity to re-read the thread from its splendid...

After watching the original video, I needed to bring Antonia to the fore - it makes me jumpy just watching her. A visual delight. Regards Styria

Re: 6.9 # 7114 - it lives !

No, I'm top dog - when I am allowed to be. I have chosen the garage as my little 'playhouse' - I love music (something not really shared), so it suits me to be holed up in the playhouse listening to...

Re: 6.9 # 7114 - it lives !

Craig yes, thank you very much for that information. I am sorry I hadn't acknowledged the receipt of the information - haven't spent that much time on TK. The PC is in the garage, and it is a cold...

Re: 6.9 # 7114 - it lives !

I spoke to CraigS at the Club meeting the other night. Like so many of us, he is flat out attending to all kinds of matters and situations, plus he has a number of cars on hand that are constantly...

Re: 6.9 # 7114 - it lives !

Geoff, if it is a four speeder, it is not an inspiring car to drive. The design of the ratios would have to go back to the fifties, and take into account mountainous driving, with very low 1st and...

Re: 6.9 # 7114 - it lives !

Yes Craig, quite a bit of care is required in order to fit the plumbing for the oil pressuure gauge properly. A claw spanner is a big help. As you know, I have carried out a valve grind and de-coke...

Re: 6.9 # 7114 - it lives !

Hi Michel, in view of your remark/statement/observation, should we create a new thread ? I am thinking along the lines of money saved, or not spent, the type of work already carried out/or needing...

Re: 6.9 # 7114 - it lives !

Thanks for your reply, Craig. I daresay it will probably take a bit longer than a day to refit the heads, all ancillaries, steering box (maybe you have already done that), brake booster, alternator,...

Re: 6.9 # 7114 - it lives !

Craig, thanks for the photos and update. Irrespective of the money spent, doesn't it'd gladden your heart when you see those refurbished heads ? Looks quite a superb job. It's interesting to see...

Re: 6.9 # 7114 - it lives !

Mark, let me disagree with you on the lack of maintenance theory by previous owners - the way I see it, other than lack of oil and filter changes, and not changing the coolant, there is very little...

Re: 6.9 # 7114 - it lives !

Just spent the last $1000.00 earlier on today - also, still waiting to get the $500.00. Anyhow, I got the equation back to front ! Horror. What's new. :o Regards Styria

Red face Re: 6.9 # 7114 - it lives !

Craig, is it cash you need ? How much ? I will sell it to you at a discount price. :D

N.B. That's got to be the 'funny' of the month - anyone agree ?:o
