    mini van breakdown A259 Thursday

    Post  kharry on Fri Jul 27, 2012 4:10 pm

    Hi & thanks to the couple who stopped & offered a tow home Thursday evening when my freshly restored 1974 minivan decided to throw a wobbly & die. I was on a road test & shake down after a headgasket replacment & trying to get rid if teething problems as it has been off the road for 18yrs (pre SORN) if you remember that. It is still running like a sick pig & missing under power - electrical problem l think??? I'm going to try and get it to Minis on the Rec' Sunday if I can get it to behave.

    Yes I did get to minis on the rec' with the other two mins in the family but the van didn't want to go over 45 mph with out coughing 'n' sneezing.
    On the other subjuct I'll just have to finally get myself sorted on facebook - Thanks
