Spark plugs

I’d never use Champion plugs.
After working for a supplier many years back that sold literally millions of spark plugs it’s one make I won’t use. Far more problems than the NGK or Nippon Denso equivalents.

Re: Marina HL - YouTube videos of suspension uprights

I thought they didn’t look too bad. Though it’s hard to tell from a video. I still stand by the old tyre theory as I’ve has this experience a couple of times and so did Ben recently. Have you had the alignment checked? Might add to the centring and stiffness problems. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

Mk2 1.8 HL Automatic update

Have you oiled the rack Mick?
Might be worth a try.
Tiny hole in centre of rack accessed from engine bay. Usually covered with a rubber band or tape. A little thin oil might help.

What did you do to your Marina today?
