MOT today. Passed with an almost clean sheet. Only problem was that my hazard lights doesn't work. I do not have to turn up again to show that I have fixed it, so I can live with that. Rust, faulty brakes, dripping fluids or excessive pollution would have been much worse
Then tomorrow the car turns 40 years old. That means I can use the Danish vintage MOT schedule if I declare that the car is for hobby usage. No problem. My next MOT is therefore in 8 years !!
By the way: It turned out my fuel pressure is just fine and according to book, so I have left that as it is.
A new fuel pump has arrived to replace the noisy one, I have now. It should fit according to the books and David Manners, but inlet is placed in another position than on the current pump, which I believe could be the original. Anyways, as it is not plug'n'play I will postpone the operation to the winter season. Same goes for A/C rebuild. I will have to convert from R12 to get it up and running again, and that will mean replacement of o-rings, oil and some hoses. that takes some time, so the winter pause will be used for that.
