Car in bits again.

  1. My car is on the drive with no carburettor (because I broke it). While it's off the road anyway I'm taking the opportuinity to replace the kingpins. Looks like I'm back on the bike for my commute.;)

    how'd you break it?
  3. Trying to build one good carburettor out of two slightly duff carburettors. I ended up with two f**ked carburettors which are fit only for the scrap bin.;);)

    Have you been reading the Norm Book of Home Mechanics again? :smile:
  5. No, but I have learnt that a carburettor is not something you can fix with a large hammer and a crosshead screwdriver.;)

    2cv isn't it?
  8. Indeed, a Citroen 2CV. Which will soon be turned into a pickup truck, when Ms RT is looking the other way for long enough.:wacko:

    If you need a carb, I may be able to source one from my local Cit garages - I have two in the area, run by enthusiasts.

    My 4th Cit, and 3rd BX, goes through MoT today. It's new to us, a very, very good TZD estate. I'm very excited. Looked after by a highly skilled, slightly obsessive engineer for the last 6 years, who passed it on to us for £100. It has A/C and leather seats as well!
  10. Cheers. I'm watching two on ebay, but if they go to someone else I might be in touch via PM.
