It's a hell of a long way, but (fingers crossed) I hope to have my 145 on the road by then and take a trip from Yorkshire to the far edge of the country.
If the finger crossing doesn't work, I'm going anyhow. Got a nice AirBNB.

Anybody else going?

Here are some pics of the 145 and 146 community from SAD today - we were very thin on the ground... in fact, I counted more GTV Cups than 145s...

A black 146ti... which gave me some ideas for my next project...

Thanks Mr G! Hope to see you again some time! Hopefully the code will give me the info I need to sort myself out. If it works I'll maybe do a guide.

Later on I saw two more 145s..

Looked a good day. Last years in Telford was great, but this one's just a bit too far for me unfortunately. I'd love a yellow 145 like the one in the photo. Not sure why anyone would want their reg stuck on the bonnet instead of the bumper like the back car, but each to their own.

That 146 the dogs. coolio.gif worshippy.gif

It's one of the reason I set out today cuz you see new 145/6s down sarf. Unfortunately, I was 20 miles into my journey when I smelled a burning smell in the cabin. Stopped at Watford gap to investigate but couldn't see anything wrong but could smell a burining smell. Anyway I soldered on. 60 miles into the journey the smell got real bad. All my gauges were reading normal so really perplexed.. In the end I had to pull into a lay by as the fumes got so bad. After some more investigation there was a drip of oil on to the exhaust pipe. There was a faint sight of smoke coming from the exhaust. I don't know if its engine oil or gearbox oil. At this point I decided to abort SAD and head back home. Bit worried about a fire starting with oil dripping on a hot exhaust.. I had to have all the windows and sunroof fully open and nurse my Bella back home at no more than 50 mph. Bloody freezing it was and I had lost all sense of feeling on one side of my face due to the cold wind.

Latest diagnostic. It appears oil is dripping on the exhaust but I don't know where or why. Got my suspicions the oil catch can is full of oil again and is building the crank pressure thus forcing engine oil out of e rear main seal. Petty sure this is the case.

Looked like a great SAD.

Off-topic I know, but here is the article I mentioned from Alfaowner re. debugging key codes.

However - this is actually for the remote door locking, not the immobilizer...

Here's the article, anyhow:

Some 145s probably arrived after the photographer had packed up but here is one that parked near us:

Good day, all.

Only just saw the topic on the forum, but that is my 146 1.8 at SAD. Great venue, spoiled somewhat by the biting wind. Some great cars, but I thought the range was down somewhat from previous events, very few older cars.

As I plan to take the 146 to Italy this summer (I have been there with it before), just took it to the local garage to get the air con checked. Apparently no gas in it at all, and the manager there thinks it is most likely the front aircon rad is cracked. Looks like I might be looking at 450 all in, not quite what I was expecting! Thinking about what to do......any advice?

Many thanks,
Doug

I recently replaced the aircon condenser as it was totally rotten, as was the main radiator, and the Nissens part cost 61 delivered. Regassing budget 60, and fitting, don't know, my dad did it! So 450 sounds a lot...

Thanks for the feedback donutty. This is my 4th 146, but the first with aircon, and have certainly had to replace the rotten radiator problem before. This car is 20 years old, but only 46K on the clock, so don't mind spending a bit to keep it going.

To be fair, the garage do a lot of work on my cars, so I don't think would rip me off, and in fact advised me that they would have to charge me 160 plus VAT from their source for the condenser, so it would be better if I bought it myself, and they did the fitting and regassing. So I have done just that, and ordered a Nissens unit like you for 67. Just need the Dad to do the fitting now.....


Will report back on the forum as to how it goes.
