  3. Back in the late 60's I had the only sports car in my life, a Lotus Elite Type 14 Super 95. It had a Coventry Climax high compression fire pump engine, twin SU carbs and from memory a compression ratio of 10.5:1, and at that time in UK you could get 100 octane virtually everywhere, and even 101 octane at some locations. Being single and then "rich" I used to buy the highest octane available. I don't recall any engine problems over the two or so years, 20,000+ miles, that I enjoyed it. I eventually sold it because of problems with the inboard rear brakes. As my daily driver I could not acc

  7. Our home insurance is up for renewal and as the shed and garage have gained some toys in the last year I thought I'd check they were covered - turns out almost all home insurance policies stop at about 5k for contents of shed & garage which I'm guessing for many of us would be woefully under the cost of replacing our various tools & equipment. I'm sure someone out there must offer separate cover, so I thought I'd ask here in addition to doing my own searching - anyone know anything or have any experience?

  8. Long time ago now but I was doing some work for a friend at his bus garage, it was broken into and my welder was stolen, much to my joy the house insurance covered it all they wanted was the police incident no, worked out good for me as I got a better welder that I still have nearly 30 yrs on regards Stephen

  9. @landroversforeverThat's a real shame, as they are very good to deal with. I hope you get it sorted, because as you say, the cost of having to replace all your tools in one fell swoop would be eye watering.

  10. @landroversforever the workshop cover is part of the policy for the farm. Out of curiosity were you wanting to insure a workshop as an individual premises or as a part of your home policy? Apologies - I just re-read your post and saw the answer there myself. Would they not insure you as one policy with two addresses, your home & workshop?

  11. We insure everything with the NFU. Every year the chap comes out and we re-evaluate, especially if for example I have bought a new welder. Insuring with the NFU costs more. However, if a group of lads in a van turns up in the night and kicks the workshop door down, taking every single tool and piece of equipment I own, I know that the NFU will pay out and I will not be spending eighteen months wrangling with my insurer about what was and wasn't covered. Likewise in the event of a fire or tsunami or plague of zombie locusts. You pays yer money and takes yer choice!

  12. My workshop is away from home so it's even more difficult. I spoke to a couple of different places a while back about getting some cover... no one could understand that I didn't want or need a commercial policy with public liability or driving customer vehicles.... or understand that I didn't have any customers!! I then spent a long while chatting with my local NFU agent about cover... eventually their underwriter came back and said they were stopping doing policies like that. However during the course of that conversation stream I went through the workshop and worked out the total replac

  13. From the Facebook photos, it looks like that is exactly what it is - you can see the undrilled port areas for the two turbo oil hoses and the 19j exhaust down pipe lower bracket in the block casting, so a 12J with 19J spec casting.

  17. Could be. They were knackered old humdrum cars of the time, already expiring, so the engines were very old tech and high mileage.

  18. Maybe the mods could split the thread to create one discussing Phil's custom 130 and leave the original thread for more on-topic condolences etc.?

  20. Comes out at 2.875:1.... I know KAM did a 2.8, and I think ashcrofts might now? It's possible also a Jag or Rover ratio from memory too. But as before, check for some numbers and the tooth count.

  21. I think another check of the tooth count is needed . I'm not aware this was a ratio ever supplied to any Rover/Land Rover axle? Welcome to the forum too Steve b

  22. Apologies for thread resurrection.... but I was reading this thread recently as have bought a new place with a much lower garage door than previous home... needed a quick fix before raising the roof. 90 on std 235s is about 203cm tall at highest point (middle tilt hoop) as discussed previously, 13’” Ifor Williams wheels do fit but need 30mm spacers to clear callipers. Once all on the roof height drops to about 188cm and so just cleared the 190cm. Hope this helps others in the future..
