Sometimes motoring passion leads to despair and annoyance. Time to walk away for a bit (or at least that's what I do).
Even though it's not the same part of the country, it's a damned good job I have the NC500 to look forward to in October!There are some fantastic roads in the speyside area. Although the Volvo had great whisky carrying ability revisiting then in something sportier would make for a great road trip experience 👍😀
We usually sack the east coast off and come back through speyside. We head south from Thurso to Tonge, Lairg, Inverness, grantown and Arberlour. Then we also get to enjoy the Cairngorms the next day 👍😎Even though it's not the same part of the country, it's a damned good job I have the NC500 to look forward to in October!
It was a risk I went in being very clear of. Scott's a great bloke, but he has a day job after all.Sorry to hear that, it’s always unfortunate when the place you’ve used cannot cope with the amount of work
Curiously, this was the same suggestion the chap I'm taking it to made when I called him to apologise this morning. I guess it can only be one of so many things, right?maybe the alternator is binding up or failing but it shouldn't be throwing belts, tearing them apart maybe,
are you sure this place is up to sorting it?
Bugger. I hadn't even considered that. Getting it out of a tight space on the road is going to be fun...I drove mine from the Snetterton pit garages to the service station with no belt (that's probably not recommended though), I'm sure manoeuvring onto a truck will be fine - hardest bit is the lack of power steering, they're really stiff without it!
No idea at the moment. I haven't had time to do anything more than open the bonnet and slam it in disappointment.Is your idle pulley OK? Is it fitted in the correct place? If I remember correctly, there are two bolt holes, another one for the non supercharged engine.
