Got my sprint on the road, anybody help with a couple of little problems?
When I picked up my sprint, it had been off the road for two years. The sills had very slight bubbling, so I repaired these, give them a fresh coat of stone chip guard a a fresh coat of peaint. I then gave the car the once over and decided that a week after owning it, Id take it for MOT. It passed with no advisories! I was extremely happy about this!
Ive not got the car on the road but have a few small issues I need to sort and wondered if anyone can help?
- I have a oil leak coming from the front passenger side of the engine bay. The oil is leaking down and running along the cross member and dripping off. It looks like its coming from around the rocker gasket. Is this common?
-Also the rear arms which go from the body to the rear axle have play in the bushes, is this normal or should I change tem?
-The wipers are quite slow. I have a spare motor, is it worth changing or is this normal?
-The car has no middle box. It pops and cackles quite alot on over-run. Is this normal?
Help/advise greatly appreciated!
These cars are so much fun to drive tho, I cant help but smile every tme im in it!
