    Re: Honda engine quit

    As Tom asked... do you have an update?

    I missed this thread prior to now. If the battery will still crank the engine after the car sits for a few minutes, I seriously doubt you have a charging...

    Re: German Opel

    I know I am a minority and a bit of a Luddite, but I have no cell phone and my daily driver is a 16 year old Civic with 220k miles. I cannot judge the worth of a car based on its electronic do-dads.

    Re: '72 Mercury Capri

    I have thought since their introduction that the latest generations of Toyotas and Hondas look like their designers were trying to emulate "Transformers". To each his/her own but they are not for me.

    Re: Ford vs. Ferrari

    I also saw the movie today. I thoroughly enjoyed it. As soon as the scene started where Shelby dropped the nuts in the Ferrari pit area I laughed so hard I thought I was going to pass out.

    Re: VDO Compatibility

    You should be able to use the Smiths 0-90 with the VDO 0-90. Morris may have been referring to another combination of gauges and senders.

    However, as you pointed out, you don't want to take the...

    Re: '72 Mercury Capri

    Being a '72 would that be the 2L 4-cylinder?

    Re: DHL Fraud Message ??

    Thanks for the heads up. When I order Mini parts from Europe they are typically delivered by DHL so correspondence from DHL would not be unusual... except like you, I don't have a "business partner".

    Re: German Opel

    I thought Opel GTs were cool until I realized it was a 2 door car without an opening hatch or trunk lid. The car seemed rather impractical to me after that.

    My uncle owned a Kadett sedan which he...

  19. Re: Meaning of the ‘dots’ under the temperature scale?

    On the electric gauges the dots represent calibration points (primarily used by the factory). I assume the same applies to the mechanical gauges but I have no information to support that claim.
