Welcome to the forum. You will find lots of help and expertise here, whatever the issue.

If you can upload some photos of the car, that would be a good start as you say. Mark at  Betaboyz will be able to help with many parts issues.

Is that the red one from Northampton?

If so it looks well bought  - you might just get away with a recommissioning. But please change the cambelt!

It might be that there's a minimum 10 post limit before you can add pics or perhaps they were too big. One of the mods may be able to advise.

Hi

Tony may know more, but appears that even new members can post attachments. There is a a limit to the size (1500Kb), so suggest keeping them to around 150Kb each is a good idea and should give reasonable resolution. Most modern cameras will generate reasonably large sized images, so you will most likely have to resize them.

Let me know if you still have an issue

Hi
Peter is correct, max file size should be below 1500kb and width less than 1000px
