    VERY tight new Chevrolet engine

    A friend of mine has just fitted a new 1987 Chevrolet big block petrol V8 in his old Winnebago. When it's hot, he has to allow it to cool down before restarting it; it's already broken two starter motors - it's so tight, it won't turn over on the starter when hot. It runs perfectly well when...

    A very tight junction and too much speed.

    I nipped out last night to go to somewhere I had never been to before, so was following the SatNav. On the A40 I needed to turn off at Goodrich Castle. The SatNav showed the junction as a lead off from the A40, so I didn't think about slowing too much. At this point there are no...

The engine cranks very slowly as if the battery is almost flat, but does eventually...
