  2. TP wagon rust bust..again

    Well here goes. To be honest Iím really questioning myself for doing this.

  3. Fuel pump issue?

    Every morning when I try to start the car, I have to pimp the accelerator 15-20 times before it will start and then it may die again. Seem to be ok after 2 or 3 minutes but is a bit touchy up until then. I am thinking I have a fuel pump issue and fuel is draining back after I park. It is often...

  9. Rust bubble on bonnet

    On my TP Elite, have just noticed 4 tiny bubbles of paint. I broke one of them, and there's rust underneath (which was expected), but I assume this is from where the bonnet 'frame' is welded to the panel. Have never seen this on a car before. Is it common on Magna bonnets? What's the best way to...

  11. TM Magna (AstronII) Fuel Pump??

    I'm unable to start the old 85' TM Magna, not 100% sure it's the fuel pump at this stage, however I've been lead to believe it is (unhooked the fuel line and was getting no flow through the line when turning the key). Battery has tested fine so assume the electronic pump on the tank is having an...

  15. TP engine oil leak question

    This is just an initial post, as I haven't had time to investigate fully, but I seem to have on my TP Magna developed an oil leak from the engine pulley that drives the water pump. Is there a seal there? Which may not be there any more? Is this a common problem?
