MOT Day

Post by tim leech »

16v went it for its MOT today, some of you will be pleased to know that after some minor work it scraped through, the emissions where 3 times what they should have been but now they are correct and I must say it runs much sweeter.

The pipes of course need doing but there are no hydraulic leaks at present so thats the next job and I wont be using it until they are done next year.

Thanks Ken, the 16v has told me how much she is looking forward to a visit to "Uncle Kens" next year. :wink:

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

What was causing the emissions problem?

They adjusted the airflow meter, gave it damn good thrash down the dual carriage way and it went down sufficiently enough to be within the limits.

I work nights Ken, so thats the middle of the day for me.

No problem, just amazed that it passed, what with pickled pipe's and structural parts of the car being a bit....well.... holey like...
The boys I use would never have passed mine if it was like that, they got arsey bout my front to back pipes, and they were way better than Tim's....
