Hi,

 I went online to check my Mot, Tax & Insurance:

https://www.gov.uk/check-mot-status

https://www.gov.uk/check-vehicle-tax

& one I found for insurance:

https://ownvehicle.askmid.com/

 

My car is not taxed!

Before I attempt to call the DVLC & find out what's going on:
How is it possible on a 1972 historic car that has been insured and taxed for many years?

I was only checking my MOT date.

What's happened?

Try it: ACU77L black GT6.

Cheers,

Iain.

Hi,

 just went online with the V5 & taxed it for £00.00. Now have the confirmation email.

Do not know how I missed. It's been taxed for the last 6+ years. 

Happy days.

Will not be driving for a while as brakes failed on the way back from work. Baby oil got me home.

Cheers,

Iain.

Nice to see you're being looked after! Would that baby oil have more silicon content, and be kind to rubber seals?  :) Top marks for innovation. (What was the cause of the failure?)

There was an interesting episode of Clarkson's Motorworld a while ago from Cuba, where the owners of the old classics from the 1950s and 60s maintained them in the face of a total lack of spare parts or service items; they made brake fluid from alcohol, with lots of brown sugar added....

Hi,

 rear passenger side wheel has brake fluid over the inner wheel + road. I guess slave or flexible pipe is deceased.

The time now to get a dual master cylinder fitted as the rear brake that do little braking, have affected my strong front brakes.

I did run my clutch for over a year with sunflower oil with no problems. 😁

Cheers,

Iain.

Hi,

 The leak was the flexible hose. At compression tube.

And

Slave cylinder was seized solid in the bore. Re-fitted a new 5/8" as wanted minimum effect & travel. I now feel I have a wee bit more travel. The cylinder must have been like that for a very long time.

Handbrake setting is worst than the worst Triumph.

Cheers,

Iain.
