Scimfest@Curborough 2019 - With Photos

Yes it was nice to meet you too! Do you have a website Roger? I don't have a specific personal website - as I'm not a professional, I've never found the time to actually do it. I do have a very low-key presence on FB to enable me to be a member of the Goodwood Photographers' Guild, so you can see a...

Welcome to the heady heights, Roger Pennington

OMG! :oops: (as they say these days :lol: ) It's a bit like watching the mileometer click over to the next 100,000 miles! Well, I wonder what the next 20,000 will bring :D

1791 is the serial number !
Blue Comet was born in October 1976 !
I see! That makes it quite an early one, only the 791st 6-series and the 240th Se6a :)

TEMPERATURE GAUGE READING LOW GTC

A "quick & dirty" test for the gauge is (with ign on) to pull the wire off the sender, it should show minimum (obviously!), then connect the wire to a convenient reliable earth, and it should go to max.

Your thoughts on a random misfire.

Still catching-up after Curborough - it's worth checking what kind of "manual" choke you actually have. Many so-called manual carbs are effectively converted auto chokes i.e. the act of pulling on the choke control in the cabin simulates the carb being cold, but it's still necessary to pump the thro...

6a Front Suspension - back to standard height?!

Yes, that's more like it! :) I think you'll find that amount of castor is fine. Now get out and enjoy it! :D

It’s been like that for a while - possibly since the last update Ian did a while back. I’ll have a look and see if it’s a tick box I can re-enable.
Thanks Phil, obviously it's not the end of the world, but if you've got a spare moment, that would be great :D

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

After packing-up my tent etc, and leaving Curborough late morning Monday, I planned my route to take me past Goodwood, to take some car photos (just for a change :lol: ). I knew I was getting towards Goodwood, when coming towards my down the road I saw a Jaguar XJR-15! :shock: :shock: Not something ...

Yes, they do look better in those photos :)

Out of interest, what are the figures in yellow (in the castor section particularly)?

Borg warner gearbox problems

In my efforts to ensure I passed on the correct information, I crossed checked before posting, the RSSOC workshop manual and the owner's handbook both of which specify ATF. I can only surmise that this information is now out of date. The problem, I think is one of confusing ambiguous terminology. A...

6a Front Suspension - back to standard height?!

I've just had a look at an old, dead PAS trunnion, and that does say Stanpart on it (though the word is partly machined away by the machining of the bearing face). I'm not sure to what extent the actual casting differs, and how much the castor angle is the result of different machining of the bolt b...

I don’t believe you could physically get the caster that low with PAS trunnions fitted. The pictures also look like non PAS trunnions to me?
Indeed, that was the reason for my last question. I agree with Andy, the photos look a bit mixed
