I doubt anyone can tell when I've got full beam on at the moment though. I really need to clean my lights and number plates as they're all hidden under a thick layer of mud and probably quite illegal :lol:

Re: Project L200

Well I changed the gearbox fluid and filter, this made no difference at all. So after a bit of googling and forum hunting (free plug for www.l200forum.com) I found a mitzi mechanic in Aberdeen that likes a homer. He traced the issue to a broken wire in the gearbox wiring loom and fixed it for a grand total of £40. BOOM!

So it's back on the road. But now the engine is surging, suction control valve is to blame for that, ordered one up and will get it changed on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Yup I was right. Spotted on the roundabout connecting St Machar Drive and Great Northern Road earlier this evening
