As if the floodlast August was not enough, and despite draining the espace and filleing with new oil, the engine is at present seized. We will need to pull the engine and do a complete rebuild of the two litre engine. In ethe meantime,we do have a spare 2.2 engine that is good and until we can get round to rebuilding the original engine, the Espace will run a 2.2 litre engine. It is going to take more time but we will get there, let you all know more as it happens.

Hopefully winter has been and gone. Whilst replacing brake pipe clips I noted that the outside fuel tank strap had suffered from the dreaded metal worm! so I had to make one of these and fit. Relatively simple task but on first glance the rotted one looked ok but the tank had dropped and was resting on the chassis.

I solved that problem several years ago by making a new set in stainless steel. Replaced them at the same time I installed stainless cooling and heating pipes. Also replaced the pipes mounting straps.

Snap.already fitted stainless pipes and brackets!

Thanks Gib,thats all i need.i was racking my brains back to the days(1978) when i was an apprentice Chrysler mechanic.basically i find it easier doing the valves opposite to the ones that are "rockin" which is how we used to do them.one wheel off the floor,4th gear and turn the wheel to rotate the crank.as soon as its weekend im going to do them.you may not remember but we spoke about 3 years ago now by phone and you talked me through the process of fetching/buying a matra from carjoy.i never actually did it that route but obv did get a matra in the end and as soon as my morris minor is completed the matra is due for a bit of resto.i dont think you ever stop trying to improve old cars lol
cheers mate

Valve clearance by creativeq, on Flickr

I made this and laminated it for the garage as i can never get on with the rule of 9 or rule of 5 or what ever.

No idea on if its better to go with custom setting. i just did them at Inlet 0.25mm Exhaust 0.30mm

hi guys iv come across a new cam cover gasket so im thinking i may as well check/adjust the valves before its fitted as i dont know when it was last derviced.soo could anyone give me the correct clearances or alternatively what most owners set them at.pref cold but if they have to be done hot,and i think this used to be the case on the murena,then ill do them hot.thanks,steve

Ja, av det gør godt nok lidt ondt; men jeg har haft bilen i mere end 10 år, og jeg synes det kunne være sjovt at prøve noget nyt.

Hvis I kender nogle som er interesserede må I gerne videreformidle:

Fik du solgt den og hvad fik du for den?
