You are welcome Tim - did Gary manage to get it running first? Did he find the ignition key or do you need a new lock?

Never towed a Stratos on a trailer but I suspect that you've got a lot of the weight behind that axle line. How did it tow?

Keep us up to date with progress, it'll be good to see that car up and running again.

Thanks Andy, but I'll pass on the swop! It'll keep me quiet for a while.

You still need to collect your forum award. Coming to Matching Green on 16th?

Just trying to think what I got for my birthday. I know it wasn't a Stratos.

Guy
Actually with its weight distribution near 50/50 we had problems with too much weight on the hitch. As positioned in the photogragh I estimate there was c 70 kg to lift the hitch. It towed fine at legal speeds but we did get a wobble at 70 so slowed down.....

It's a great looking replica that a friend of mine had for almost as long as I've had mine! The last time they were out together mine was still a red stradale replica, it was changed back in 1995 to the square arch group 4 body it has now! It amazed me what good a condition it was in when I saw it for the first time in 18 years a couple of months ago. Just a light covering of dust but it appeared to have been put into storage with a lot of sympathy. Gary, it's first owner  bought it from Courtney Garage in Woking, it was professionally built by Bob Pilott (who was tragically killed in an accident on the M40 earlier this year) when he was Gerry Hawkridge's only approved build agent.

Hopefully Tim will be able to recommission the car carefully with some new belts, hoses, a fuel system overhaul and a few other bits and bobs and we'll see it out and about soon enough!

I note from the file the engine came from a numpty alfa owner in Hampstead. One of the large garage bills reads recovered non working car. Found it ran out of fuel. Runs well when a gallon added. Another reads recovered non working car. Cam belt broken. Fixed for large amount of folding....

Priority will be belts.....

Oh and tyres like new but rock hard. Guy do you have a source of the large 285 40 15's
