    I have had fuel pipes and other things perish. It’s not always possible to tell how old the stock is when you buy it. Particularly from eBay.

    Re: The future's electric?...

    I like the idea of the electric motor drive with a small engine to charge the batteries. The charging engine is contrived to run at maximum efficiency and the motor avoids the weight of the gearbox....

    I understand that the IVA test is similar to the SVA in that you most probable will not pass first time but you will receive a list of items to be re-tested. The examiners will have a great...

    Re: Marlin Roadster Registration Advice

    I have a VIN from the DVLA for my Sportster. It’s a long way from having an IVA. I guess the reg number, issued after IVA, may be tied to the VIN but not the other way round. The IVA will check the...

    Surely some mistake; working on JRR 292D is life. Everything else is a distraction.

    Re: Cabrio rear bearing noise?

    Sierras have pretty robust diffs. I think you have been unlucky to have one fail. I would not choose based on potential wear. I have been told the 1:9 is best for a 2L Cabrio.
