Re: MK1 Sterling

Useful bit of kit Andy! Just need to build some shelter around it for those not so sunny summer days! Did you check your new ball joints for grease? I've heard of a lot coming through with little or no grease in so i check any i fit now (although it's a few years since i did one) and found there wa...

Got myself a "little" toy to help with working on my cars :D https://i.postimg.cc/jDJ4xgbH/IMG-20200614-122744.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/CZGCDRdd/IMG-20200617-100452.jpg I bought some new front caliper pistons, the old ones were corroded so were sticking.

it reminds me of the one that I used to have - and miss very much
I remember seeing it at Brads when he had it for sale, wasn't too taken with the blue leather but being a manual Sterling was very appealing :D

It's still going no?

Re: MK1 Sterling

I had a spare new auto radiator so figured it better to fit that, but always wondered about fitting a separate cooler for the auto.

When did you last see it at a show?

Re: MK1 Sterling

Photos as requested, more to come, I've already taken the radiator out because it was rotten lower down, hence the missing grill. I have a new auto radiator to go in but one of the cooler pipes wouldn't play ball so I have a new one coming from Rimmerbros. https://i.postimg.cc/CR7PTVTh/IMG-20200508-...

Re: MK1 Sterling

Thanks Dave.

I went with the Carlube but the one that arrived was the newer bottle, on the website it doesn't list Honda Z-1, but on the container it does....

Re: Mk1 Sterling (manual) for sale

Has the belt never been changed or not been changed in your ownership?

What's the clutch, gearbox like? Does it tap when cold?

Has it been regularly serviced?

Re: Mk1 Sterling (manual) for sale

Looks tempting.. When was the belt last changed and would it get home ok (Swindon).

Wouldn't mind a manual Sterling even though I have the Rovor and manual 827 Vitesse!


What's the issue with the non starting?

Just realised i bought the pair of door handles off you recently! :)

Re: Manalishis Mk 1 827 Vitesse (manual)

The 1995 - 1997 USA accord had the C27A4 fitted which ran on unleaded and had a different intake, the Acura legend forums have some info on it. The way i see it. A1 was used in the USA version of legends, so were CAT versions, then the UK didn't use CATS at the time so the higher compression version...

Re: Manalishis Mk 1 827 Vitesse (manual)

Looks nice :D I do like the 6 clocks!

Dave, isn't the C27A4 the accord engine, with different intake? Never heard of the A3 version. But the A2 is the none cat version found in the UK Legend and 827 from 87 to 90.
