Graham Walker Ltd

Nothing to do with Graham Walker.....but your original post reminded me of something from my distant past.... My first car when I was a spotty tenager in potters bar was an old Austin seven that I found in a bad state but set to restoring. All went great but I soon realised there was this funny addi...

Gauges removal.

I'll put my pennies worth in as well. I've seen a friends kit car with these on. Don't know if it was that the gauges are undamped or the kit car vibrated too much, but they shook all over the place. It's the old adage....you pays for what you get!

rear fogs

Peter, if you want an original and your lens is okay, you can have one that I took off my car. I think everything is fine but the lens was cracked so I found an original unused replacement. Will dig it out tomorrow as it's in the garage loft space and check.

oversized pistons mounted on con rod

Sorry Mark, it was the after market ones like burtonpower conrods that I was meaning were expensive etc......probably should have included shot peening, not tuftriding as that's how their ones are prepared......shows my age! :w :roll:

Where do I look for a nice 6B / GTC

Sinbad, was it Feb445w, or feb444w? I'm curious because I was the original owner and I've now got her back and am restoring her.

oversized pistons mounted on con rod

Eric, when I checked, the best guys were the car clinic in darwen. Speak to Martin.....I'm sure they would send parts to France. Good luck :mrgreen:

If you need conrods as well, they can be very expensive as most are tuftrided etc. unless you can locate old stock.

Petrol tank sender?

Just an update on fitting the sender.... The new (plastic) unit is thicker than the pressed metal one and try as I might (with tank in place) I couldn't get the clip on. My solution was to grind the three slopes down a very small amount and then it fitted perfectly. Perhaps with the tank off, I coul...

oversized pistons mounted on con rod

I'm assuming your Essex needs a rebore not a rehone which is a pity as I have a set of almost unmarked standard pistons that I removed as a previous owner rehoned, put new pistons etc. in without realising that the problem was a twisted conrod. Big ends failed, so I've totally rebuilt with oversize ...

Petrol tank sender?

Funnily enough, I just received my sender unit from qrg today (thanks nigel). I think it's been written on these forums before, but if you get the sender with three electrical tabs and you don't have a low fuel warning light, you can easily wire one in with a live from any ignition controlled circui...

GTC GTE Seat Foams

Hi Rob, if it's just the seat base, I bulked mine up from below with dunlopillo foam about 3 inch thick. Just relax the springs and slip the foam in, then reattach....seat base as good as new!
