Went to see this car.
I was in good nick apart from the odd scratch.
One thing bugged me though, the rev guage did not work, I asked him why, and he replied its because it has a different fly wheel??
Anyone know how to fix this?
So we agreed on a price and he is going to get it MOTed.
Looking forward to getting it.
Scott

A sensor reads a notch in the flywheel to give a reading. Lots of advice in the forum archive on this, they're notoriously unreliable.
I bet the 1.9 a tight squeeze in the engine bay. The standard 1.7 td is a snug fit as it is.
With 78 bhp the 1.7 goes a bomb, and handles too. Your 1.9 should fly.

I hope the MPG does not go out of the window!
