    As has been said in an earlier post, the MOT emissions test limits have been based on the age of the engine, not the car's date of first registration. This may have been relaxed to 'no smoke' in the...

    Can't see why not. The timing light is 'passive' as it just connects to the battery to power the lamp and a clamp over the #1 HT lead to detect the ignition spark.

    If you can find some Tipex then this is ideal for marking TDC on the harmonic balancer. Also put a bit on the edge of the indicator tab. If you have a dial-back strobe light then that's all you need...

    There are good cyclists and bad ones, just the same as good and bad drivers (campervan drivers included).

    I think all the Jag diffs whine a bit. Remember there is not a lot of sound deadening in a Cobra and the diff is sat about a foot behind you.
