Newbie to Grampian!

Postby Sarah21+ » Mon Mar 11, 2019 5:30 pm

Hello *waves

I have signed up as a member today and I'm looking forward to my first 'trot out' in my MX-5 Mk2 on Sunday. My MX-5 needs a little TLC so I'm also looking forward to gaining advice! :D

Sarah, you might find a funny car at the front of the run but don't worry about it - no one else does!

It's not tidy close up! :lol: And I've had the original wheels changed back from the ones in the photo! So many jobs that need doing such as a very sneaky clutch that we just can't seem to get to! :roll:

Usually just needs some grease, if the noise is inside the car it needs sprayed with silicone grease aimed at the pedal pivot area.

If from below the floor, a quick detour while going through Drumtochty on Sunday, if I'm there, we can put it on the ramp and put on a blob of grease on each end of the slave cylinder push rod. It will take 5 minutes.

Oh that's FAB! I'm in Laurencekirk! The noise is so annoying and I'm sure that everyone can hear it when the top's off!! We're tried to get it and just can't!
