Insurance is the same as my 1 litre Vauxhall Corsa as well, which isn't bad considering I'm 21 years old.

We'll ignore the fact that I've spent thousands on bodywork repairs...

Shame to hear yours is no longer with us. It's why I bought mine. The other buyer was going to banger race it, so I rescued it. I figured after the life it's had, some TLC wouldn't go amiss.

There is actually a silver 1991 740 for sale where I work. 120,000 miles. Saloon. 2 litre petrol (might have the same B200F as mine actually). Immaculate interior. Needs a few bits and bobs done - 4 tyres, new battery, missing a filler cap and a hub cap, and it's been sat there for 4 years. Full service history and 1 owner prior to that. Trouble is my pirate of an employer wants about a grand for it.
That's way out of my price range now mate as I've bought a Jeep to play around with, cheers for the info though Your No6 fuse issue might be down to a blocked fuel filter which you should find under the car about half way between the tank and the engine, they do need changing regularly and be aware they only fit one way round!

I thought that was the second fuel pump?

Maybe your car doesn't have the filter there then, on mine it was like a silver canister tbh I never even knew I had one until it was up on the ramp once and someone pointed it out to me!

Turns out there's 2 pumps. One inside the tank which I replaced (utter pain in the nuts, and in the process the sender stopped working) and the other runs under the car. The fuel filter on mine is attached to the in-tank pump, and looks a bit like a kazoo. Yes I did just write that.

As it stands the 240 may not make it to the October meet, so if I turn up I'll more than likely be in a riced up little Vauxhall yoghurt pot on wheels.

Thumbs up

Well, that was a very successful meet at the Rose in shotley today.

Thank you to all those who attended, and a huge thank you to the landlady, landlord and the chef who made us all very welcome. The food was fantastic and very well priced. The dinning area is large and the landlady even let us rearrange the furniture to accommodate the amount of people who attended.

Due to this great success we have made the decision to meet at the Rose again next month. This meet will be from 11am on Sunday 13th of November.

Hope to see you all again in November.
