The other thing I'm convinced of is that gravity gets stronger every year.....at least everything I try to pick up these days seems heavier than it used to, and its a lot harder to myself up when I've been lying under a car.....

Ooh that's right I hadn't twigged. Gravity also pulls more of one's skin from the back of one's body making one *look* overweight. When one isn't of course

Bloody gravity.

Just been told ( again) my FE is scrap . . . . what a scam that is.

nigh on brand new belts out of date at the end of the year as well. Only been used about 10 hours.

On a brighter note I have actually entered a race!

Why is it scrap? It can be serviced by any qualified FE engineer and does not have to be serviced by Lifeline or a lifeline agent. Lifeline insist it is replaced after 10 years, but that is purely a commercial decision by them and not an MUK requirement. I have the email from MUK to prove it and have posted that on here before.
It may be scrap because it is damaged but is not necessarily scrap if it is over 10 years old or if it has not been serviced in the last 2 years.

Sears Trophy in the Cortina. not doing Thruxton, Lydden Hill . . . . just need to get the juices flowing again . . . . was thinking about Spa, but major house renovations going on are also a consideration.

If I enjoy it I'll be considering options for next year, if not I'll sell it.

Andy, I agree . . . . we have FEV locally, again, they'll only service their own FE's . . . . it was new in 2013 but hasn't been serviced since MAy 2016 . . . . perfect condition, but according to lifeline its scrap. I have a few old FE's in the workshop probably 20 years old, still on full pressure.

I remember seeing Brian Poole's (I think) Marcos go up in flames at Snett a few years ago. With a wooden chassis & fibreglass body there wasn't much left, but that didn't deter John Woolfe from touring the spectator areas in his Cobra, collecting money towards the repairs. Suspect it would have taken a lot more than that...

I would find an independent FE engineer locally and get them to do it. It will save buying a new one.

He started his own raceparts business from his home about 5 years ago and has grown. He is a rally man but seats, belts, helmets extinquishers etc. are the same for rallying or racing. He became a Lifeline qualified service technician about 18 months ago. Everything he sells are genuine new items from reputable suppliers and have genuine FIA labels/holograms etc.

What's worse Lanky is when you crawl under said car and forget the spanner. Even more worse is when you forget what you were going to do under there and still forget tools...
On another note we have found the problem with the march 79B. Fuel pipe from regulator to carbs collapsed. We should of picked this up earlier but we had done umpteen fuel flow and pressure checks.
I can hear Mike tutting now.
