  1. I am going off old Triumphs...After a week in which I sorted out a floppy handbrake with a sticking ratchet, coughed up for a new battery, and fitted a good secondhand door lock so that the missus can actually escape from the thing, in she went for the MOT. I even cleaned all the mud off the inner arches from the last show we attended, where the organisers were too tight to buy a ton of stone chippings to fix the mud bath they thoughtfully provided at the entrance for the second year in a row. Two advisories, excessive play in NS top ball joint, and excessive play in the NS rear trunnion. Both were brand new QH replacements, fitted during the prolonged rebuild when QH stuff was still readily available from good motor factors. Both have under 5k miles on them. I believe my tester is a straight guy, and he is not fishing for work, because he knows that i do most things myself, so can these new parts really have deteriorated over time? To make my cup runneth over, he wound the windows up because it was persistently precipitating down, and the passenger side will now lift, but not drop, which suggests it has come off the regulator mechanism. Cue more in-door fettling and arm lacerations, oh joy! Old cars eh? Yours, growling Steve C
