Re: 1982 Rover 3500 V8 Vanden Plas automatic.

I've never been a fan of Strombergs - a Triumph-inspired, less reliable version of SUs in my opinion.
A good condition SU is a fine piece of kit but American carbs work well on American engines

Re: 1997 SLK 230 Kompressor

Looking at the circuit, you can feed the switch from a power supply that is live once the key is turned (it could be almost anything) and leave the switch in the ON position at all times, unless you actually want to switch the clutch off.

Re: Air Con Condenser - 825D or Turbo Coupe

Car Builder Solutions have some generic ones - one of which might fit. https://www.carbuilder.com/uk/radiators

The link says "radiators" but they have condensors there

Re: Fuel pipes across tank needed (corroded = MOT fail)

Will rubber pipes not do the job, temporarily at least?

I'm still looking at convertibles, going to look at an old Astra on Saturday all being well.
Probably a safer bet than the Saab, although probably fewer specialists to help with parts and used spares.

Anything involving the aircon and turbo on the 9-3 is a bastard to work on

It's doing 13 average, it doesn't seem to improve much/if any on a run either.
My 6.2L V8 Ford F150 Raptor (400+bhp) does at least that much :)

I'll get round to a thread on it some time.....
