  1. Thank you Nick , I will take a look . Some very nice aspects to its design even from what I have seen so far .
  2. Found it , not as exceptional as I hoped it might be but a very interesting example none the less . Thank
  3. Let me have a quick look as strangely it does not delete for 30 days !?!?!?!
  4. Interestingly GC site may be reawakening under a member’s control . GC’s parts listed again ! Be very good news ! SIDEWAYS and GC .
  5. Good morning , No progress to report . HC pistons still not arrived . A week or so ago I thought I would take a look at Triumph/Fiat/Lancia FB forums despite having deleted FB from my phone about a year ago when I could no longer deal with it . There are a number of related groups but almost all of a lightweight , non tech nature . I posted on around four of them but it has only been a week and I have again resorted to deleting FB off my phone . perhaps it is a problem with me , not sure . I can not remember If it was on one of the only few tech related groups who’s name I
  6. So it’s all Sideways-technologies fault for lulling me into a false sense of freedom ! Having been reading several other posts on that site it seems I might have been over worrying , Several others have talked freely about other companies products other than the sponsors . I do now appreciate though that one should do the homework needed first to asses the politics of a site before indulging . It’s their baby and you are just a visitor .I have no problem being corrected if I go astray though . Thanks for the unrestricted side of this site by the way . And , as I think I said before y
  7. Stupidly I had not picked up on their commercial sponsor . I do dig myself some holes . I have now crossed off the offending Flickr link , I’ll see what happens .
  8. Unfortunately I think I might have already upset the American Fiat website owner of Fiat124.com which is one of the rare remaining relevant sites out there as some of my pics on my Flikr link have a commercial link . Stupid of me , should have thought , but nothing intentional . My signature is now highlighted in red and non functional . I have apologised , declared my innocence and offered to rectify but no response so far .Tonight and tomorrow I will swap out any commercial pics with personal pics . Hopefully this has not caused a problem here ? They should have L plates for non IT Sav
  9. As I said , the more worrying aspect is the crank re-grind question . I spoke with SMD today , seemed very decent . He said he is very busy but could do the block work in early November . From what I have gathered most places are struggling to catch up with back logs . Apparently he worked for GC years ago but is still in regular communication and still shares some work with him . I will send an email to confirm the date and range of block work involved in order to get an estimate of those works . In the meantime I need to find out the truth about the ‘ odd sized ‘ 125 unit crank
  10. Right , idiot boy has managed to change his ‘ signature ‘ . Was’nt hard really ! Just slightly worrying !
  11. OK , Seems just clicking date uploaded Instead of date taken gets past that one ! Its a struggle .
  12. I hate IT . Not crucial but my first load of Spit related pics loaded fine on Flikr but all though done in exactly the same way the second load of Fiat related pics are divided up by date . Why ?
  13. Flikr link for now . https://www.flickr.com/cameraroll
  14. No response from CCK so due to the connection with GC I will contact SMD in north Kent on Tuesday and try to get a feel for how they would deal with the short block work . If anyone has any relevant questions to put forward do let me know please . No sign of the forged HC pistons yet .
  15. Hi Zetec , I regularly look in a ten/fifteen mile radius around Brighton having spent many nights in very nice Kemptown B&Bs but very few character 2/3 bed houses with garden , parking , garage come up in our price range . Trouble is ‘ Camden on sea ‘ is very popular and areas like Lewis , Battle , Hayward’s Heath are also in big demand . I think we will have more chance further afield but I won’t stop looking . RE main short block , it appears having trawled F/L archives that the block is not of 124 origin but 132/Argenta origin . Who can you trust ? Makes little or no differe
  16. Hi Mike , I used to live in Victoria Road in Bromley common . Bromley IS changing fast , like the world , it’s becoming another soulless Croydon . ‘ New Croydon ‘ or ‘ Catford on the hill ‘ . Hence my desire to move on before I get an unfavourable neighbour and I spend the rest of my life behind bars . BiTurbo , close to Edenbridge , we are also regular visitors to ‘ The Wheatsheaf ‘ at Bough Beech . The owner is an ex city boy who loves his classics all though you are talking P2s rather than Spitfires . Bough Beech reservoir is a really beautiful bird reserve , if you go at the rig
  17. We are looking near West Country if possible as I do not like long car journeys ( although if it was in my Spit it would be far more tolerable . ) I still have my Dad two sisters and my four daughters and their families in SE London so there would be some visiting to and fro . My other sister and her family lives and has a couple of shops in Tetbury and Nailsworth and my mum who was in Peckham Rye is now in Stroud close to my half brother so already some folk down that way .
