  1. Last week, 2 things happened. Firstly, the MK passed it's MOT! WOO. Second, this: All that just to get the gearbox out.... Gearbox is off to be rebuilt - got a worn synchro which has been playing up pretty much since I got it. So figured it was finally time to get it sorted. Going to replace cambelt whilst it's all apart also.
  2. Exactly that. Pinto powered mk. Running bike carbs and a few other fun things!
  3. Just a few pictures, because... well why not.
  4. That is going to be a right weapon! Good work
  5. Got the transmission fluid changed and unfortunately this still happens. Seems like it's going to be a gearbox out job and replace the synchro.... anyone know anyone who likes fiddling with gearboxes?
  6. Probably about £200 I think. If you're interested I'll find out exact shutter count and get all the details etc.
  7. Thinking of upgrading my camera.... anybody after a D3200 with very low shutter count? Probably sell it with 18-55mm lens. Feel free to share this amongst friends Thanks
  8. Cheers for the help guys.
  9. Sure is. Good shout, I'll try get that done this weekend and take it for a spin. @Adam@TartyBikes any suggestions as to which oil? This one perhaps? Cheers!
  10. Gearbox question to all: In the MK if I change from 1st to 2nd at anything higher than roughly 3k revs it proper crunches going into 2nd. Doesn't do it on any other changes, including 2nd to 1st. Am I right in thinking this is a synchro issue? Thanks
  11. Insurance on my MK is about £120. Well happy with that!
  12. Well a couple of weeks on and the new one seems have done the trick! Took it for a little spin with a mate on saturday, and it rained. Doh! The Mrs wasn't happy.... Also fitted a new plate to it the other day so it's no longer wonky! Hurrah. In other car news, I got a phone call from the Mrs the other when I was on my way home from football after work. The police had turned up at my house and scared her shitless. Long story short some drunken idiot had ripped the wipers off my car whilst it was parked at the station. Great. The good part to the story, is they caught him so he's paying for the replacements!
  13. The mk is running again! Yay. I think my neighbours may hate me now though
  14. I must admit, I was starting to think perhaps there was a reason it was stuck down. Once it's running again I'll see how this one gets on (luckily the car came with some spares, so not had to buy anything yet (other than fuel....). If it fails, I'll try some of that instant gasket stuff you suggested. Cheers!
  15. I'm shit at updating. Even shitter at remembering to take pictures. Here's a brief description of my weekend just gone: Last weekend I did an oil and filter change on the MK. Whilst I was there I thought I would replace the rocker cover gasket as it was weeping a bit. That turned out to be a bit annoying - previous owner had glued it in... much scraping needed. Eventually got it all off and new one seated flat. All seemed well, so drove home - happy days. Upon putting it back in my garage I noticed a blob of oil on my drive I then looked out onto the road to see blobs all the way down it! Doh! My seeping rocker cover was now leaking. God dammit. Left it for the day as had to go out...... Sunday came around so I replaced it again - much easier this time as I didn't glue it.... Put it all back together and fired it up - only firing on 3 cylinders Swapped 2 HT leads (I think that's what they're called?) over - sorted. Turned it off whilst I put the bonnet back on and opened the gate etc to take it out. Now it won't start. Great! Now I have to figure out what I disturbed.... Tune in next week to find out what else I can break! P.S Probably should have mentioned I don't know my way around a car at all mechanically, the most I've ever done is oil changes really so doing a gasket was actually a first for me!
