General Technical / Re: Need help- neglected 3rd gen
« Last post by clive on November 16, 2018, 08:57:18 PM »
Sort of remember  been to a lot of peoples houses over the years to help with their cars, where did you live ? A set of plugs would probably help then give it another try. For safety's sake, first try and find a mate who would be familiar with towing a car before attempting this.I would always let the cars engine turn over with the car i [...]

Hi Clive,You might remember me... you came to my place years ago to help change my brake pads, and have a bacon sandwich Thanks for the tip, I'll give it a go. What's the recommended procedure for tow starting? And should I think about changing the fuel filter/ spark plugs first?Cheers!

Hello and  Sounds like the engines flooded and having tried to start rotarys that have been standing a long time in the past, probably the best way to fire the car up again will be a tow start.

I get my lightly modified '99 insured as a second car, garaged, 3,000 miles per year. I shop around each year and have used Adrian Flux, Sky Insurance, Footman James - suggest you get a quote from each.

I've recently insured mine with 'need 2 insure'. They were very good, easy to deal with and offer a modern classic policy for rx7's. I have an agreed valuation policy for a lightly modified fd which is £475. I'd definitely recommend giving them a ring, couldn't fault the service I received.

Rotary and General Chit-Chat / 99 RS - Classic Car Insurance? Which providers
« Last post by cib24 on November 15, 2018, 05:38:02 PM »
Hello,I became a paying member on this site not long ago (I know I know). Anyway, I just cancelled my insurance with my previous provider as they wanted an extra £200 this year for some weird reason. I feel like anything north of £500 per year on a car like this which doesn't get driven that much is ridiculous. I haven't considered clas [...]

Reasons are too long to go into, but suffice to say, I'm not proud of the situationSo, I'm in a position now where I can get it back [...]
