Re: '94 2.0 ES - Very nice one up for sale

In fairness, those tyres are only circa £10 a corner cheaper than the likes of a Uniroyal or equivalent (regardless of if the tyres are the wrong size) At the money its at when you compare it to ~most~ 480s that come up for sale around the £1000-1200 mark these cars tend to be up the length of 100k ...

Re: High torque clutch for late Turbo's + pics

i think the best experiment would be to buy a very cheap clutch and try it onto a 480 flywheel - i'm unsure! or speak VERY nicely to your local parts supplier and they might let you try it for fit I have spare flywheel here if you don't want to strip an engine :wink: or it could be measured with th...

Re: High torque clutch for late Turbo's + pics

Based on this post I'm led to believe that the Helix upgraded clutch (Helix 30-4203) for the Renault Clio II would work for our little 480 Turbo wedge. Has anyone looked into this or tried it? https://www.demon-tweeks.com/us/helix-sporting-uprated-clutch-kit-organic-hlx30-4203/ I think you are righ...

Re: Gas springs for the rear window

They are widely available. However...‎ My choice would be to send yours (along with the pop up light gas struts which are probably also very weak now)‎ to SGS Engineering. They will recharge yours and if they hold a pressure, send them back. If they don't hold pressure, they'll send you replacement...

Re: Scotland Mobile Mini Meet August 17TH 2019

Alan,

I've 2 sets of clocks in the boot of the 940 for your perusal on Saturday! see what one suits you most!

Had hoped that I might find a buyer for my last remaining set of 15" wheels that were coming to the event to save someone on shipping but no takers!
