    Normally I would write it off as the limit of my amateur diy skills but the very same car went into MrT for a full service service after I got it and it was not picked up!!!

    Paul adjusted the timing and fuel mixtures and would take any more than the 80 quoted - best money I have spent and well worth the trip from Glasgow.

    Cheers Paul.
    I obviously meant "...would NOT take any more than the 80"

    I just want to thank Paul for expert fitting of a new cambelt yesterday afternoon (I only phoned that morning!!) to my MK1b.The job was done in about 1hour inspite of the tensioner bolt flats being rounded and therefore spanner just turning! Soloution was to weld a larger nut to the bolt head and undo with a perfect fitting socket.
    After running up to temp.Paul checked and reset idle rpm,along with a general "health check".All in all total time in his expert hands about 90 mins.Fantastic!!
    Thanks again Paul(and Tony).

    You're more than welcome sir, normally they take well under an hour but yours threw me a little surprise problem.

    Anything you need just ask, lovely example you have there.
