Peter Fonda

Thanks for putting this up....I wasn't sure if a car forum appreciates a hippy biker. I went to see easy rider in '69 and within three months had packed my bike up and was heading round the world not to return to the UK except for the odd few weeks till 1980. Last week I saw easy rider was on sky an...

I've got a bit left over!

Nope, not fuse box related....it's got a bolt/screw cut out on each corner whereas the fusebox has only two centralised bolts so couldn't be a spacer behind. I somehow thought it might have been a spacer underneath the central console, but definitely not in the parts book. What's the betting that it...

I've got a bit left over!

Good call....it could very well be fuse box related. As the ply side piece had crumbled away and the fuse box was hanging, it was probably just loose somewhere. I'll see if it matches up to the bottom of my spare fuse box. If so, it's in the bin it goes :lol:

I've got a bit left over!

Right, been through all the bits of my 6a ready to reassemble what hasn't been done and this mysterious part has baffled me. IMG_20190817_114042.jpg I put it on the front of the car so you can see the rough size. It's made of fibreboard. I cannot remember where it came from and cannot see it in the ...

Your thoughts on a random misfire.

Agree with reb, but the other first check......are you putting the plugs back in the same bore they came out? If not, could it be that simple? A plug breaking down....not in the normal way, but insulator giving up. Had it happen on the race bikes....difficult to start, but once hot it reseals and co...

Finally!

Purists would never have had a car made from Ford, Leyland and GM parts covered in plastic!

Looks great, hope mine's a tenth as good when done. Now, let's see under the hood.

Scooter ski

Looking at the differing specs and prices on the sporting reliant and bond sites, I can only assume that they were originally with the aspera engine and then later the larger rotax.

Good luck, at least rotax spares are a bit easier to find than aspera/tecumsah

Water pump blanking plug

Years ago, when I converted the choke on my Essex engine to manual control, I needed to blank off the feed from the water pump. Being a cheapskate, I found a bolt with non threaded section of the right size and used that, hose clipped into the shortened pipe. Typically, this was still on the car whe...

Bogging at 4000 rpm

Another product especially designed for racing motorcycle fuel tanks is Petseal. I've used it for years on the thruxton and hailwood race bikes.

This is the ethanol proof version:-

C3 dipstick tube

Like everything else that I came upon Dennis 😁. Try, try again, sweat, curse, walk away, coffee, come back, plead with it, then get the oxy out. Trouble with spot heating a block is....Craaaack!!! Therefore, I only lightly dusted it and got the block warm - then managed to wiggle the tube free with ...
