Re: Roofus

Sadly not, the Stilo obviously heard your suggestions about nicking his engine, and now won't open his bonnet to let me near it any more, the release just came off in my hand

Re: Roofus

So always one for an easy life Roofus is booked in for the MOT next Friday so spent the day beheading him Never run right and towards the tail end of driving him (been laid up since September) was running really rather warm and developing a drink problem so... head gasket time.
Once off it wasn't too hard to spot the offending cylinder:

Swapping one of my spare heads on with a mildly warmer cam fitted while I'm on anyway, see what difference that makes (turns out as with many this age it was a 4x4 cam in there already).

Re: Roofus

So... never did make that MOT so over 2 years later Roofus is now a project for a new owner while Grumbleweed is hogging the garage for some much overdue tlc and I work on the new "oh-no-definitely-not-a-project-this-one" Seicento.

Sorry Roofus, feel like I let you down, hope you and Lee are good for each other.
