Another Year’s MOT!
« on: December 23, 2017, 19:16:47 PM »

After something of a delay, I now have another year’s MOT on my Callie. These days she has been relegated to occasional use as I brought another car when the engine let go in August, 2016. Jobs that were tackled for the MOT included a near useless hand brake, new front to rear brake pipes and fuel lines.

She also failed on emissions caused in the main by a faulty thermostat preventing the engine reaching working temperature. It needed changing anyway as when the cold weather came you needed the heated seats to prevent hypothermia! This is a total bar steward of a job compared to changing the thermostat in my 53 year old Zodiac! Once that was done and the lambda sensor cleaned up I got a new MOT ticket.

The intention is to use her all over the holiday period as I do not return to work till the 2nd.
