Long time lurker, I hopefully will be there depending on the successful commissioning of the new heater control valve in the matrix.

Could you put two more down for lunch please? I will know for sure Friday evening! 

See you there.

Thanks for a great get together.

Only fly in ointment was that I broke down on the way back! Once the heat had dissipated from the Broadway crawling, she ran fine again- for about 25 minutes, when I was struck by fuel starvation. It looks like more grot has found its way from the tank and past the inline filters into the jets.

Managed to limp it home avoiding motorways with a few stops, so i can have a proper look and get the taste of patrol washed away with glass of wine!

Darren - you are not alone!

Chaps
That was a great day out and thanks for making me feel so welcome. I got home just after 7pm.
Having left at 8am, that was an 11 hour road trip notching up another 437 miles on the mighty Coupe with a clear run home! regards to all.

You did miss out on a pretty decent cream tea though Chris....

A good day out that was. Considering the touring route and destination were very impromptu it worked out pretty well. I even got to test the headlights out on the way home. Verdict is quite bright, lots of light but not much of it where I need it!.

Lucky to get back at all by the look of the fuel filter- Operating the pump produces the same sandy brown mess. Cleared jets , again, but float  chamber sure to be a mess too.

Looks like it's a tank off job and a premature end to the season with only a few days left.

Any one tried the POR 15 tank lining stuff?

I had a great weekend, thanks to all. Another almost overheat yesterday in heavy traffic (M1 closed/roadworks x2) so must add the fan thermostat to my winter 'to do' list. I did finally get my box of bits from FNC's former owner after diverting through Derbyshire to avoid the M1 mess, but only after getting totally lost in Sheffield.

Great photos Theo, no doubt another excellent batch on it's way from Tony!

Great stuff guy's...It was my intention to make the trip down, but not having a shakedown run in the Coupe after my thermostat re-jig and a suprious intermittent flatspot put me off.

Having said that the Coupe has run flawlessly all weekend...I will make the next one.

Great photo's Theo.

These are great pics again chaps- more than worthy of a post on the LMC forum I reckon. Well at least the cars are!
