    good bye Wheeler dealers says Ed china!!!

    I used to like the early shows of Wheeler Dealers when they seemed to show more of the mechanical side of things, and were on small budgets. Lost its charm when they moved to the States.

    MGBD Parts & Services

    I've used Mark Gray and Wins and found them to be both very helpful and quick. I wouldn't use the other one again as they sent me some incomplete, sub standard parts and never got back to my emails.

    2000 Drivetrain noises

    Just an update... I replaced the rubber mount. The old one was rather worn and mushy. However this wasn't the source of the noise. I later discovered a worn halfshaft UJ. One of the prongs on the spider had lost all it's needle bearings! Got a new UJ from Wins and all good now.

    2000 Drivetrain noises

    My 73 2000 has developed some nasty noises which I beleive are coming from somewhere along the drivetrain. It's fine when idling and at speed but seems to occur when taking up drive. I was thinking it could be propshaft or UJs, but first thought I'd get some opinions here on the flexible rubber...

    Carb Question?

    I've noticed a slight bit of hesitation on my 2000sc engine the last couple of days, so I thought I would check the carb dashpot to see if it needs topping up. I unscrewed the cap to find it empty! I use the car daily and had only topped it up about 3 weeks ago. I know these do need to be...

    looking for a car i used to own

    I like your 90's photo, it was about that time that I bought my first P6. Interesting to see that your old car was in 'Anna Lee'. Will have to look out for it if it gets repeated again. I love watching old tv shows and looking at the cars. I wonder if anyone here has a P6 that was in 'The Sweeney'.

    Engine Side Plates

    Yes I think your wise to fit a new one. My old ones looked sound enough but I didn't want to have to do the job again in the near future. It's a right pain removing and refitting some of those small bolts!
