Re: Coolant catch tank

Looks like Peter and I are having the same trouble! I run a Rover engine and initially had the same problems, I made 3 changes. 1) I raised the header tank to be the highest point in the system.

Re: 1 Stainless Steel Original Shape 289 Cobra Front Nudge Bar/Bumper For Sale

Frank,
I spent 3 years waiting for one of Gerry's after his maker retired. Eventually got one fabricated in Stainless using an original, kindly lent by a French member, as a pattern. Guess thats pretty close?

Re: insane shipping costs

Morning Alf,

Assuming they are packed properly, suggest the post office or Hermes. I just sent 4 tins of varnish to a Greek island from UK for £30 ?
