Sheffield Pub Meet Will Be On April 4Th.


Recommended Posts

It's our pub meet on Thursday evening. We meet from around 7.30 onwards at the Toby Carvery pub at the top end of Dronfield. If anyone's coming over that has a decent brake servo for a Manta could they bring it with them as my Ascona's one has died. Bloody unreliable German Junk's only lasted 32 years. It's probably my own fault as I put one of those Fuel system cleaners in the tank that I wouldn't usually use, but got from work (for free) so I thought why not? Two days later and the car started misfiring. All four of my inlet manifold's rubbers had perished and split. Then a week after changing these, I was flying up to this roundabout and jumped on the brakes to hear a loud whoosh and feel my brake pedal go rock hard. I had a right job getting it to slow down enough to make it round. I limped it back home and then found that not only had the servo pipe's one way valve failed, but the servo had too. I think this Fuel treatment stuff has knackered all the rubber in the servo, valve and my inlet manifold. Maybe not, but it seems like a bit of a coincidence to me. Anyway, If anyone's got a decent servo they could lay their hands on, it would help me out. I've just blanked the pipework off at the Manifold for now so I can still drive it. Cheers ... Luke.
