Re: Irish East Coast Run

When you come off the M50 slip road towards the Spawell there is a long dual carriageway with a 60km limit, its club med for coppers on a sunday morning, who hide behind the bus shelter at the end of carriageway just at the roundabout

Ah Ive another engine waiting for a rebuild so Ill just press on with that one. Doubtful ill have it done for the run at this stage though. Works gone crazy and I'll pretty much be locked in an office till the end of june.

I might still gate crash in the SEAT. Ill stick photos of the 33 to the bonnet or something

Re: Irish East Coast Run

These older engines are fairly straight forward to sort out its just getting the time to do it and iron out any problems once its all back together.

Hope there's a good gathering for this one.

Re: Irish East Coast Run

sure there's 4 of us saying "yes" on here, and i think 2 on alfaireland as well...
if even half the "maybe"s then turn up that'd be 8-10 cars
even 4 would be sweet

Re: Irish East Coast Run

Somehow I doubt I'll have the 75 ready (that's an understatement btw).

But the 155 will be shiny and new

He's the parts guy in the opel garage in the retail park on the donore road in drogheda. (Duleek exit off the M1). Its there everyday and Ive passed him on the road a few time but never spoken with him directly.

Totally mint though.

Where are you getting it done? Sounds like a reasonable price to me. Is he doing the variator for that price too?

Its Riverside Fiat on the North Rd. The guys name was Joe, seems bang on gave me 3 calls to make sure he was checking the right parts. I asked him for a price on:
Cam belt, metal ternsioner, idler and variator
Balancer shaft belt and tensioner

He came back with €400 - €450 parts with 2-3 hours labour @ €250.
