Awesome car mate, and happy birthday.

Insurance - try Peter James and Footman James. I have 10 cars on my policy with FJ and have been told Peter James do similar. I'd be looking at Classic policies as well due to the age.

Funny you say that but it's got a FJ taxdisc holder so will deffo be trying them. I really struggled with the Mira, because its not on the computer they just didn't want to know.  Tried lots of specialists as well but there just after your money!

The car is far too good to even think about breaking it, found out tats it's got central locking last night as well!

I'll look after it  :smile:

cant wait to see this in the flesh!! congrats gruss!! bargain of the year fo sure!
the underneath all looks very familiar too - your sump is an awful lot less bashed than ours tho - they do hang very low!
looks good on the cut springs - if its a bit too low we've got some standard ones you could borrow if you want.

regarding insurance, we tried to add carol onto our classic policy and they wouldnt do it cos she's theres no ref of them on the system. sky insured her as a beat with a cover note stating they know its a mazda carol. we have carol as our 'main' car on the beat's classic policy through Diamond and do it that way.

Apologies for being a bit OT ...

With FJ it can depend on who you get on the phone. The department I use only has 3 people in it, but I will only deal with one of them as the others don't give me anything like the same sort of quotes/deals.

When I bought the Mira Classic - FJ couldn't find it on the computer, but no problem, he said they'd class it as a UK 850cc Mira, ins grp 1 :ohmy:
I did speak to one of the other people in the department last month when the guy I usually speak to was off - long story short, I almost cancelled my policy and the car I bought is insured elsewhere.

I know what you mean Chris with getting the right person. I'll enquire in the future though and try and get something sorted.  :thumb:

Thanks for all the comments! I've made a start tonight and started seeing what I need for the engine. I've got lots of part numbers but would like the cappo owners advice on the dizzy cap. On the distributor body there is a sticker.

DENSO 33100 70B2

The cap is DENSO. The cap on the cappo looks different but I've googled my number and have found links to E-HA11S...  On eBay they are nothing like but is there a early one?
