SS1 Mixture & Running

I'm intrigued as to why your manual choke conversion hasn't solved it. Is it operating in place of the bimetallic cap only, or does it not replace the whole assembly with fast idle cam? I would expect the later from my experience.

Curborough 19 August 2018

Mikey, I think they may have put you to run first so that the following competitors will all be encountering the same grass and mud on track rather than it being kicked up part way through the running.

Front shocks change

If the original battery tray is present it's ever so slightly more of a fiddle. But otherwise it really is a "5 minute job" each side. Spanner size for the bolts and nuts is 9/16 AF although you may just be able to squeeze a 14mm on if needs be. Or bring 'em to Curbs and we'll do them in a jiffy :D

Stud pattern.

If you wish to replace a DFT, then the logical upgrade is the DMTR or DMTL which is a direct fit and compatible with the ordinal grey oval air filter housing by means of adaptor which is usually supplied.

Bump for Curborough. Save on postage and I can bring them along.

You will need the inlet manifold to suit the TLDM also.

Not easy, but certainly do-able.

GTE SE 5/5A parts and bits

What is the ID on the front springs, 2.25" or 2.5"?

Manny's SS1 1600

A crucial spare to have in the "Bordeaux box" under the boot floor.

If you need one in a hurry I have good S/H cables here and also clutch fork widgets should you need one. Could post out today for delivery tomorrow.

engine sounds like a machine gun

Apologies, confusing things my end. It is the oil I use in the CVHs and you are right it is semi synthetic, and truthfully I did know that, just been a while.... actually I probably should do an oil change before curbs. It's the Shell 5w/40 that I also use copious amounts of that is FS https://www.o...

engine sounds like a machine gun

Clicking lifters quite common on anything but a fresh CVH / one in fine fettle. Doesn't sound great, but not something that should strike massive fear into you / be of grave concern. Does the tappet quieten if you rev the engine up? No harm in an "Italian tune up" :lol: Not all comparable grades of ...

G130 YCF my first sprint car

viewtopic.php?t=17113&start=1605#p442023

head gasket failure and a pile of parts for a towing point. All relevant.

Basically a 1 ton 1m strap from eBay. And a cheap generic threaded towing eye through the spare hole in the diff casing. Nothing fancy.

G130 YCF my first sprint car

Probably in part a failure due to poor prep and a cheap headgasket. You can pick up CA18 naturally aspirated head gaskets for a fraction of the price on eBay.... but at what cost? If the work was not done by anyone of particular repute or with an actual interest then they may well have cheapened on ...

G130 YCF my first sprint car

If the engine isn't out yet, does it not make sense to pull the head in situe first? In all likelihood the issue is confined to the top end. I'd suspect a cracked or corroded head.

Well done on the MOT pass.

Given the colour are you offering a combined roadside and mountain rescue then with the dog?
