My friends brother set up the carb and timing, He has a mk1 escort mexico on twin 48 webbers,

He has always set up any carbs for me and does an awsome job.

Despite the rain and thanks to the pop-up Gazebo, managed to get the Junkyard serviced yesterday and ready for it's MOT today fingers crossed, as haven't got much time to do repairs if it needs any.

Well done Matt,
Good luck Daz

We also passed our MOT last week with an advisory for some play / wear on the right hand side thing that turns the wheel. Is it a drive shaft?

sounds abit like that could be  a universal joint or wheel bearing but Rons our expert on that now will just need to keep an eye on it just in case it gets worse.

Cheers Owen , lol, yeah will have a listen and a feel, cv joint, wheel bearing possibly, think Peter would have written it down on the Mot as there is a column for advisories.

FAO Helen

Linda wanted to know how you got on with trying to get time off for Jersey ?

Ron

well done Daz on getting the bus sorted, hope it passed mate.

It passed no advisories cheers  Cool

And well done V, I would check your ball joints they take a bit of a hammering on our roads,failing that the drag link or bearings as has been said but they usually mention it if it's bearings because they get noisy.
