Sill body mount issues.

120mm on a non galv chassis, a galv (CVH mounts only) chassis, a galv Ti chassis and a galv mk1.5 Sabre chassis. is that not 'all' ? , or only the selection that you have? :wink: I see that the holes in tub are pretty 'generous' so should have been able to hit the mounting-hole somewhere? but you w...

Does Run Fast 351 Eventually!

Thanks for the info. I've never used red oxide paint, though seen it used many times on industrial plant etc,. I'm using an old tin of Galvafroid, bit thick to apply, cellulose thinners seems to do the trick. We'll see how long it lasts. i had a tin of galvanised paint which I thinned down but it n...

Sill body mount issues.

I can confirm early chassis was two hole, ours is a 1985, can't see them changing the height of the mount as this would mean a change to the mould?

I'll see if I can measure height from bottom of sill to top of mount tonight if that helps???

Alternator Not Charging

you need the 'warning' light wired so that it is ONLY live when ignition switch is ON the voltage from the battery then passes through the warning light to 'excite' the alternator if the bulb is blown (or the wire broken) then the alternator will not charge. I know I changed the Regal across to an a...

Petrol hose ( again )

A couple of weeks ago I noticed some cracks appearing in the supply hose to the fuel pump, replaced about five years ago with what I thought was good quality hose Does the tight bend / underbonnet heat / vibration accelerate cracking? Whatever, a timely warning to all, keep a close eye on the hose,...

Fixing front of sill

You could consider cutting and patching the tub if welding is localised, or indeed creative welding from underneath. Bit of thought and time spent and most things can be achieved! been there with a Regal, twice, set fire to it the first time :shock: but as it was only a small flame like an old para...

SS1 colander

If you are handy enough to fabricate and repair that then perhaps consider just creating your own SS1 spec wishbones using chevette donors. that would be my option too, company in Wales ( i think) does Chevette tuning parts ( https://www.tjmotorsport.co.uk/index.php ) sure others are available?? at...

I'd be interested in seeing an answer - I believe there is a "standard" small car driving cycle that is used for the speed/mileage part of the calculation, but then..... fag packet calculations 45 mpg is about one tenth litre per mile or 0.06 litre / km assume 0.8 as petrol density, gives 0.05 kg /...

I don’t know how to equate % or ppm to g/km? That’s because they’re not like for like - one is a relative value and the other an absolute value. A catalytic converter can reduce %CO and ppm values but won’t change the g/km value. Both a Toyota Prius and Bentley Continental GT will have the same CO ...

My GTE se6a 1981 passed it's MOT last month with figures of CO 0.08% ( max is 4.5% ) & HC 275 ppm ( max is 1200ppm ) so does that mean I will be banned from all cities then ? Then your engine is set up wrong, sorry! You should set no lower than about 2% CO or you will be far too weak potentially le...

Sybil SS1 1600 drive and restore

Where is your engine earthed to the chassis? I notice that your battery earth lead seems to be the same as mine - it goes direct from the battery -ve terminal to the block at the inner end of the engine mount bracket, which is great for giving the starter a direct earth back to the battery. However...
