  1. It's not that important, just setting it to 30 and I am sure it will be fine.
  2. Controller with is set to 0 at the moment, so not doing anything. The help icons do give you some guidance, I forget exactly what the steps are.
  3. To be honest, I wouldn't mess up a nice 109, especially a sentimental one, for the sake of what will likely be a difficult project with a terrible outcome. Restore the 109, and use it as a second car
  4. Probably the right thing to do, it could be a no-cost job, and you would know the seats and guides are OK.
  5. But we have a huge car industry over here, exporting all over the world. If it was impossible to make it for a low enough figure, then all the other car plants would have shipped out. As it happens, even after Brexit, they are staying.
  6. And then there is .... https://www.motorbiscuit.com/worlds-most-badass-rv-the-mercedes-benz-zetros-2733-a-6x6/ Bit big maybe?
  7. Right-click are pretty reasonable stuff, used them on a few cars and still working.
  8. Used one of these for years, works OK: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Clarke-CHT462-Valve-Spring-Compressor/dp/B004W62AJ2?ref_=Oct_s9_apbd_omg_hd_bw_b5bbSQx&pf_rd_r=PGCZ15FG2BCP158F16R0&pf_rd_p=d94f35ca-6cf8-519c-8016-21b42de74a08&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-10&pf_rd_t=BROWSE&pf_rd_i=5136316031 Sometimes the spring's length means you have to wind it in a little after clamping, but mostly fine.
  9. An engine flush may well help, buy the gallon of engine flush type oil, it is far better than the additive bottles, run it and change and see what happens. Otherwise it is fairly simple, cams out, replace tappet, new timing belt, which you probably want to do anyways....
  10. Oil ways from block to head look extremely gungy/blocked, would fit with the dry rocker gear?
