Abs

Cheers for that was beginning to think everybody had left, brake servo is looking most likely given the solid pedal but like you not sure if that would trigger the lights
Not too much hassle to change, car scorned so no rush
Hope somebody comes up with solid answer though

Normally hesitation/misfire is down to coil pack being faulty, suggest you check this first

Buttercup moving on??

Thanks mate, going to be very hard but sadly she sits unmoving and to be honest I will be more upset if I never have the time to use her again and I have to watch her deteriorate

Fuel tank woes - suggestions?

As above, I thought all tanks were near enough the same apart from maybe slightly different inlet pipe angles.
My new aftermarket tank also had no fitting for the filter but a bit of heath robinson type engineering fixes that.

Btw welcome, where abouts in Outer Hebrides are you?

front wheel/s not turning

Before you throw the heavy stuff at it, pull the wheel off and check there is nothing stuck in the abs ring, rust/debris/dead animal etc
Failing that does sound as though the bearing has seized, big bar should move it but guess the bearing will be knackered

Peeling clear coat

If it helps guys, clear coat spray normally blends in very easily if done in several thin coats, did a repair on the c-max, could barely see the joins, leave a few days then lightly t-cut, job done

I hope this was nobody here

Those two truckers right at the start were a bit slow, could have stopped it just after the roundabout, impressive acceleration from the cop car though from the start and love the american style attempted spin from the second cop car, very risky over here

Not sure if this will beat it or not as purely word of mouth A mechanic friend knows of an early Puma, possibly a 98, in Scotland that has only ever been out of the garage for its yearly MOT, then back into storage again, seems as though it has never yet reached its first service mileage!!
