Just gave "vegvesenet" the proper info on the car, so we´ll see what they can find.

From the swedish "vägverket" I still haven´t heard anything.... Seems like they are even slower then their norwegian part(if possible..)

Are there any germans here by the way....?

Hmm, drove the car up on some jacks to day for a better look underneath. Seem some petrol leaked out when I changed the pump, and have been running down the engine and around the exhaust outlet. Started smoking some when the car has been running for some minutes, so seems like I need a going over the engine with a steamer..... But was a bit worried when I saw the amount of oil on the outside/bottom of the engine....  Shocked Shocked

And as I read the lists there are 19 more Murenas that are in the register but not ready for the roads.
But no Bagheeras? Huh

Seems like it, don't know if these are "in ownership" but without licenseplates, or if these are the ones that have been registered in Norway in total, including scrapped ones.

Well, I know of atleast two Bagheeras in my hometown, my friend have one that he is restoring, and one for parts. Strange that they do not appear on the list... Could be that they are registered under an other brand, the Matras in Norway are registered under the Talbot brand.

Of course! All Bagheeras are SIMCA Matra Bagheera, except the 1980 TALBOT Matra Bagheera Embarrassed

The amount of oil unter the engine doesn't look shocking to me.
They all leak more or less oil at the seals.
I did not see a dry engine upto now.
Mine is pretty dry, but sometimes I smell a drop of oil hits the exhaust.
One Murena I checked out buying, had a small box mounted unther the engine Cheesy
Once a week he empty'd it.
It keeped his driveway clean.

oh, it´s like that....

I guess they also use quite a lot of oil then....

Other cars that I have had, usually leaked on the head cover gasket. Will probably try to get one and change it, see if it helps any.

I can't speak for others, but I drove mine for 1000 miles (only have it a few months) and and used about 2 mm on the oilstick.
I think its not to much.

Mine is much worse.
I expect that a lot of it comes from the top cam chain cover.. should be easy to fix.

I readed about lockleak and its a additive for making seals a bit more flexible and stopping leaks in the seals..
Anyone have experience with it, because there is not much info on the net about it.
You can find the same stuff from wynns and barleack.

Have secured the oil hose, took of the carb and gave it a good clean now. Engine is running more smoothly now, still need some choke to keep it running, but not as much as before.

Anybody has any ideas of why the heck my temp doesn't show....? The meter gives full reading when grounded and the sender is not shortcircuited (i think) since i have two and both give a reading when checking with an ohm-meter.

Who do I contact in Sweden then? Bilprovningen?

No, it´s  Vägverket you must get in contact with.
This is the email address to the customer service:

vagverket.ore@vv.se

If you speak norwegian I think you can read swedish. Here is information about export of cars from Sweden:

http://www.vv.se/templates/page3____11295.aspx

Today there are only nine (9) Murenas registred in Sweden Sad



Email me your chassisnumber... i have VTR access on my work, ill check it for you... Smiley
