Re: Jeep talk

Not as bad as it could have been - but still more than I paid for my daughter's immaculate, low mileage 2002 Rover 25 (175 quid) :) The engine bay looks like new and the underneath is almost as good https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7814/46565464005_6277f055b0_k.jpg https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7800/...

Re: Mercedade's '97 Vitesse Lux

If the head has been skimmed, I wonder if it has been reassembled with the valve clearances too tight - leading to the valves not closing properly, leading to low compression. Low compression = less oxygen in the cylinder but if the injectors are still squirting in the normal amount of fuel, this co...
