In the quest to both right previous wrongs and make things on this car actually work, I had to have a look at the braking system. It worked, kinda, but needed to be better.
Tastes Like Petrol
Just because I’ve been playing with the Saab, doesn’t mean the TVR has been neglected. If anything, I’ve hit the TVR with some renewed vigour this weekend and got a couple more jobs sorted.
To say I’m a little smitten with the Saab is an understatement, it’s a very good all round car. I’m impressed.
I got bored, and when I get bored, I spend too much time on Trademe. Somehow I have ended up with yet another car from a defunct manufacturer.
Just to keep things interesting, I got to help a friend out with their VW Passat that had a transmission issue.
Well yeah, Bosch K-Jetronic…. I now understand why it’s so widely hated.
Last weekend Tastes Like Petrol was invited to join the Wellington Rover Club Run to the Manawatu.
Another small job I wanted to take on whilst the car was in bits, was to check the valve clearances. I had no history of it being done, and its a fairly important thing to check on these engines, and not hard to do.
Its been a while since the last post; almost exactly a month. Although it’s been quiet on here, work has been slowly progressing on the TVR.
