Jesper- will do, thanks very much
I'd stick with the happy memories, otherwise it turns into a head ache.
Maybe it's not all cars, maybe it's later model, later production line cars???
My VIN is 9117600551 Eng 6676703 built NOV 01,1976
I did a bit of research after I got my car back from a complete running gear rebuild and it was still doing it's thing. There were others with the same problem.
We tried various things, even putting a spring form a Mitsubishi car in to change things up.
But no go.
I only really notice it at around 2700 RPM when I go through sub 3000 rpm gear changes it becomes quite violent. Ie jerky.
Otherwise the engine goes from purring to growling to singing to flat out screaming without a hitch
When it does all those things in one hit you don't notice a thing
I think The engine is very revvy and likes being revved
