Re: Shocked

if you buy from Diesel Electric then they can pump it to a higher stiffness and within reason if you show you bought it they from them(i.e. invoice) will generally re-pump at a minimum charge (if it is still working and not completely stuffed) I had mine repumped after 4 years fro R40 .

Re: Spare tyre lock

Did not get the keys when I bought the car and was able to jimmie the lock quite easily. I fitted a discus type lock on the hole to the right of your lock. Tight fit in the door bracket slot but fits quite nicely. Not completely fool proof ( what is) but you won't get a bolt cutter close to it. The ...

On your first press the booster still had vacuum and you typical feel that you required less force and the travel was a bit more. Your second and third should be the same. I suggest before you start it tomorrow morning you check the difference in travel between your first three presses,( do them 2 s...

Re: Brake pedal feel different on first brake application

I'm always hesitant to bleed brakes on older cars, even more so if you don't know the history. The problem is that when bleeding you all of a sudden use a part of the master cylinder that would not have seen any use it a number of years and any deterioration of that surface could potentially damage ...
