Good day all

will check the fuel bowl as well...thank you sirs ... another member has highlighted the idle shut off solenoid - which i was half considering...i assume applying 12v (engine off) to it will prove it either works or not..?

Manny's SS1 1600

Water in the tank was definitely one of my thoughts, as i had left the car idling on the drive ( inclined) when i first 'fixed' it - the nose was higher - so it may well have been petrol being drawn ( half a tank ) - but as the car died on a slight incline finally - i was hoping that water was not a...

Manny's SS1 1600

Went for a 30 mine drive - cut out twice - restarted with full choke - and then about 50m from home broke down again - the car would appear to fire up and then just die... :( :( I popped the bonnet - the ignition amplifier was warm to to touch - the coil was considerably hotter- but not enough to bu...

Manny's SS1 1600

Good day all, yesterday i moved the the ignition amplifier to the bulkhead ( mock up for testing) and ran a direct lead to the -VE post - all fired up nicely - left it idling for 25 mins - heatsink was slightly warm to the touch - so hopefully all should be well. https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1727/...

SS1 Headlamps and front auxiliary lamps.

I have at last got back to looking at my SS1 (1989 1400) and it is now running well but one headlamp has just stopped going up and down - I will eventually work through this and find the problem (using phil wormald's guide), but I have also noticed that the front aux lights although they flash corr...

Which Ignition Coil!?!

So I had a play today. Left the dlb105 in place. But replaced the cable from the ignition amp. Previous one had 3 wires coming out the amp. The replacement with my amp only had 2. So I thought I’d give it a go. A half an hour drive didn’t result in loss of power. (1 small cut out). Ignition coil wa...

Which Ignition Coil!?!

Hi All, Nice and simple, Which ignition coil do i need for my 1600 SS1!! :? I bought a DLB105 but this is for point ignition i found out and gets WAY TOO HOT! And i lose power when run for a while. I assume this is due to it being the wrong coil and not something more dodgy! What do you guys use? T...
