    Re: Cabrio LWB Hood cover

    I had mine made to measure by a local car upholsterer - his prices are very reasonable. One advantage of living in an unfashionable part of the country! (South Lincolnshire).

    Re: Brake Judder

    Hi Geoff
    I had several Sierras as company cars, doing 35,000 miles pa, and often had brake judder. The result was always the same - a new set of brake discs all round. They were horrible things, and...

    Re: Seriously Exhausted?

    Hi Bill
    I do not have a Ford engine but did create my own exhaust system for the straight 6 BMW engine.I’m currently on my third system iteration - the first two being too noisy.

  6. Re: Ford Sierra mark 2 plastic master cylinder reservoir replacement

    Other Ford models have reservoirs that can be used - don't limit your search to just the Sierra.

    Hi David
    I've been advocating this for years - however there has never been a lot of traction to the idea: primarily because several members have bought spares over the years on a private basis,...

    Re: M52TU Alterantives

    The bad news is this sounds like an EWS issue (which should have been deleted). It will start around 30-50 times and then refuse to start again.
    I am surprised that Adem Ergen has let you down - he...

    Re: Clunking Differential - play/ backlash?

    I have a 3.38 diff with very good internals - the only drawback is I stripped one of the threads of the case. I only swapped it out when I found a NOS Scorpio (?) 3.36 diff being sold cheap on eBay....

    Re: Unfiished Sportster for sale - winter project?

    It is being mis-advertised as "Registered as a BMW 325i" - it clearly isn't an E36 BMW 325i, and can not "be registered" as such.

    It is NOT registered as the Marlin Sportster that it is trying to...

    I would wholeheartedly agree: but go one step further and remove the front anti toll bar too!! Though I accept it introduces the issue of hard mounts and chassis strength when using the substitute...

    I’ve just read your query under Roadsters.
    Do you have a Sportster and a Roadster? They are very different cars .

    Honest answer is I do not know for sure. But I do know the original Sportster was based on the Cabrio from when it was Ford based: it then moved over to BMW E30 based, when I believe the chassis was...

    Re: Marlin Hunter V8 - Dual servo

    Sticking brakes has been a common problem experienced by adopters of this dual servo: the return spring on the pedal is essential.

    It is pleasing to see Hunter V8 owners are still adopting this huge brake improvement- it transforms the car from a “squeaky bum ride” into a sporty car you can push on with confidence....
