Sorted out the rats nest of wiring on my R from old sound system and alarm / immobiliser installs:
And got it running again with no engine light after cleaning up the ecu water temp sensor plug.
You need to move the baffle across to those holes and then attach the strainer onto the base of the oil pump, you will see what I mean once you've moved the baffle across
Croft Xmas stage rally Sunday 16th Dec . Finished mid field, no crazy risks, no panel damage, no breakdowns.
New tyres half gone in 60 miles, in the damp.... Needs brake pads also.........
Best 'result' you can hope for rallying...
Where did you finish?
39th out of 89, so mid field. There's no doubt everybody is getting relatively quicker (car development) and I am getting slower
as I'm 55+ now.
However, the car is great on the brakes, quite quick at the second half of the straights, handles reasonably and is good off the start line.
I'd like think it still a top 30 car.
Its home built, and pure clubman 'group A' spec, so not worth a kings ransom.
Not too shabby at all, considering the levels of competition!
thanks, always have a great day whatever happens
