Re: Lumpy starting

Helen, here's some old info I found: I f you give the glow plugs the correct amount of time, and still have problems starting, it may be due to the condition of your battery, perhaps one of the cells has failed? ‘Turnip’ from Belper says: “we have had same type of problem, so we booked it into a hig...

Re: Off to Scotland

Bottles of Avon Skin so Soft purchased. Smidge! If you go to the legendary Nevis Sport outdoor shop in Fort William and ask them for the best insect repellent they will tell you Smidge. But not everyone agrees. Mrs Bongo gets bitten even when covered in 100% Deet. Have a look at this for a discussi...

Overheating: Third Time Lucky?

Joan from Glastonbury has asked me to post this on her behalf. All observations welcome. Hi Ian, I wanted to seek out some thoughts from other Bongo users regarding my overheating problem.

Re: Sebring 200 free to collect
