General Discussion / Winding Up Of The Club
« Last post by pccthebreed on October 04, 2021, 11:24:40 AM »
I would like to say how sorry I was to read that it was decided to wind up the club at the AGM. I can of course understand it as the club has struggled for many years to attract commitment from the many members. I understand the difficulties as the ownership was spread far and wide and although at one time there were a couple of area meets these were mainly attended by a few stalwarts who kept the club going. I would like to say a huge thank you to Ian Streatfield for his help during my time as Membership Secretary and Editor of The Breed magazine and to the many others that have helped keep the club running for all these years. The end of an era. Will the website be disappearing also as there will no longer be funds to support it?

Hi  I know this is an old post but my new to me bulldog turns out to be registered as a 79 marina. Can anyone advise how the original poster solved their issue? Thanks

Thanks Tom. It seems I'm late to the party. Oh well, better learn what I can. Ian is helping me out with a manual. Cheers.

Hi Darren
Just to stop you from wasting your £12, the club was being disbanded after the AGM. However as the website is carrying on I’m sure someone will help

Hi folks.  I've just got a Bulldog with a 1.7 Marina engine.  It's had a wee prang on the front end which has been repaired but I now need to repaint/gel coat the wings and front.  In addition the hood and interior need attention.  I'll be signing up to the club this week and hopefully I'll be able to pick a few brains.

Regards Darren

Hi Tom,

Thanks for your interest.

Its been going really well, I have clocked up about 2.5K miles so far this year driving it to work quite often. I have to be careful now as I took out limited mileage insurance at 3K miles. I think I will need to increase my allowance for next year :)

It is running really well now, it really is starting to purr now having thoroughly blown away all the cobwebs. I have been calculating the mpg as a measure of how the engine is running it seems to be 27 mpg. which seems good to me. I checked all the plugs a few weeks ago they all look perfect, and each very similar now so I am happy. I got the carb dialed in a bit better after I refitted the manifold

Its still a little uneven at start, I think the idle is a bit low at start up, but it settles in after a few mins.
.
It used to be uneven and with smell of unburnt fuel that's all gone now

Regards Jon
