pop-up headlights

On Row 10 of the 'TT' race was the 289 Cobra - no. 28 that used to belong to my friend......apparently now owned by Gregoire Audi & co-driven by the ex-GP driver Jean-Pierre Jarier...it had an 'off' on the last lap. Incidentally both Revival progs. are still available on the ITV Hub... I sat on the ...

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

Doing a 6mile round trip into town on Friday, I waved at a powder-blue Morris 1000, saw a local burgundy chrome B Roadster with the hood down, the driver of whom studiously ignored me & then coming out, a chap waved who was driving something old & quite exotic.......but I've forgotten what the hell ...

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

Yep, the Pug diesels were brilliant. One of our contractors ran Pugeot 305 vans (when did you last see one of those! :) ) and the engines were doing 200-300k miles with minimal maintenance. The vans were usually crashed or had fallen apart with abuse before the engines were half worn! :lol: Many ye...

Offside vertical link for SE5?

I think there’s an internal groove running up the inside of the trunnion, so its possible the grease went down the inside of the vertical link and back up the groove, missing the threads completely but still are out of the seal as you expect. When that route also blocked, then it started to pop the...

Check that the fuel input pipe is pinned into the carb - the pipe coming out is the cause of many a Scim or other weber carb'd cars catching fire
Was that not just a problem on the early cars, Peter? Did it afflict the 38DGAS & 40DFAV - or just the early carb.....??

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

I'd go for a frogeye with a different front too - the windscreen shape looks pretty distinctive? The film was made in Brighton, apparently, and this website "Films Made in Brighton" (scroll about halfway down the page) lists it, along with a photo of the car emerging from a familiar location in Hov...

Offside vertical link for SE5?

That was certainly a problem that developed in the last few months, Roger, when the bottom plate had come away & could be pushed back into place with a finger, but the grease did used to appear to emanate from the top. Going back to when she was recommissioned & back on the road exactly 10yrs. ago, ...
