Well, I would - if only I could!  ;D

Some encouraging comments, gents, for which I  thank you. However, as has been noted, my health/mobility issues won't allow me to do much more than polish the headlamp lens, and just recently I have gained an additional problem my eyes have blurred vision and floaters, making it unsafe for me to drive (I'm waiting for my GP to refer me to hospital) and most certainly wouldn't be able to drive to Serek's. I only justt made the 12 mile journey to the tesst station same garage as last year.

Dave, the Reg. No. is AV51GYP.
Albs, you are probably right, but the tester said that the corrosion will only get worse for next year and  I could maybe only get another year's motoring for all that money - he never gave a fiugiure.
The emissions test that I was so wooried about it sailed through!

General Car Chat / Massive MOT failure - goodbye Omega?

Broken spring, brake pipe corrosion, sills corroded and wishbone joints knackered to name but a few things! If I could display a JPEG image of the certificate, I would, but I don't know how. I've only done 5,000 miles on those ATP wishbones....waiting for TB to sneer and say "I told you so"!

Ron. :( :( :(

 Sorry, but the lady is far too important for the "Dead Person" fil e.
My beloved Dame Dianna Rigg died today - she whose eyes shot arrows into my heart.

I believe that the problem has very little to do with racism and mo to do with territorialism. We are being overwhelmed by large numbers of those wo do not subscribe to our culture and seek to make it their own. If they don't like it here, they know what they can do!

Don't you just love the old films on TV where the sreets are in black and white - and the people are not?

What are you trying to say, Nick? Nothing rude, I hope!

I'm touched by all of your good wishes, folks. Thank you all.
It's not exactly like an oil cane, Sir Tig: three days a week for several hours on a machine, every week - forever! It severely limits my leisure activities and means that I can never again go on holiday.
Bu still, the alternative is even worse.....

I've been absent from the forum for ages as I've been more in hospital than out of it, with  deteriorating kidney. I am now being prepared for dialysis - not a good prospect - and will effectively be house/hospital bound.
I started the Omega for the first time since last November (when I broke my hip bone) and I expected it to be reluctant to wake up, even if only to pressurise the fuel line, but amazingly it started immediately, was lumpy for about 5 seconds and ran normally!
Now I am readying it for MOT next week: all fluids sorted, cleaning headlight lenses and only the emissions light to put out.
Wish me luck?

Ron.

raywilb, perhaps a letter to your MP might get some action?

Buying TWO of these:-
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Timing-belt-Kit-Fits-Vauxhall-Vectra-Calibra-Cavalier-2-5-Omega-2-5-2-6-3-0/222619968296?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649
gives the right number of pulleys for a reasonable price; they were 20 each kit when I bought mine 2 years ago!
