    Hi all! My windscreen is marred with a lot of swirl marks, and I'm wondering if any of you have had this problem and how you fixed it? It's not impossible to see out of, but it's definitely distracting at certain times of day and at night, and I'm wondering if this can get sorted as a DIY job.

    Hi. Does anyone have any tips for removing marks and scuffs from the glovebox door on my GT? It's that sort of brushed finish plastic that scuffs really easily. The Mrs tends to throw her handbag down there much to my dismay and there are a few scuff marks. Normal interior cleaner doesn't...

    HI All, I am putting a TS into an 1971 GTV and have got the car started but it's running rough. I know it need to be 10' before TDC, so I want to check the timing but cannot see where the timing marks are. Could someone please enlighten me. Picture would be good. Here's a picture of the car...

    Hello All, My mechanic removed my fuel pump to remove the intake manifold on my 2.4 JTDm. At the same time we decided to change the cambelt and waterpump. The cams were locked in place with a proper locking too. With the fuel pump disconnected, the mechanic tried to loosen the bolts on the...

    I know in general that they are!! So, here is my question.... I'm busy replacing all the belts/tensioners/waterpump on my twinny. First time I've done it. I'm using cam locks and proper dial guage to determine TDC. The manual refers to the timing marks on the crank and the exhaust sprocket...

    Hi All, My Alfa Red MiTo is now 4 years old, and is starting to show signs of her age in the form of swirl marks! I give her a good polish with Autoglym stuff every so often (SRP and EGP), but I think it's time I gave her some decent treatment, so I've invested in a dual action polisher (a...

    Hi everyone Can anyone advise where the timing marks on the engine case are for the cam belt. I suspect that the belt has slipped but don't know how to check. The marks on the pulleys are clear but I can't see what they are supposed to line up with. Any help appreciated. Cheers
