A lovely car once they are all in order!
The motor on this car had not been looked after that well by the previous owner. A costly repair was necessary.
The timing chain needed replacing as well as the timing chain guides and tensioner.
The front crankshaft seal also needed replacing.
Camshaft feeder pipes were replaced.
Adjusted tappets to spec. These had never been adjusted and adjuster threads were seized.
Replaced vacuum advance.
Replaced water pump assembly.
Air pressure sensor replaced.
I'm currently replacing door and window rubbers as these have perished with age.
I also replaced the carpet with factory original material and had the front seats re-cushioned.
Once it was fixed it ran like a dream. These are lovely cars made for cruising, preferably at high speed!
It still has a few niggles which are expected from a 30 year old car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
