Re: Stuttering in first

Engine revs and sound unchanging throughout; does that make it a judder?

Stuttering in first

Every now and then, the SS1 seems to stutter when pulling away in first. I put it down to ham-fistedness with the clutch/throttle at first, and also had my suspicions about the handbrake not relaxing fully (still do have suspicions there) but it seems to pull away smoothly in second, which puts the ...

Re: SS1 Ti Flat battery

As an aside, I last diagnosed a bad battery by comparing the voltage across the terminals under no load (which was 10 point something I think, 10.7 rings a bell) with the same voltage under starter-motor load. It dropped an awful, awful lot. Under no load, the voltage was apparently fine; it was und...

Re: Death of a Scimitar

All seems fine, and the in-car entertainment that is a lungful of petrol fumes with every breath has cleared up. Required tools - a Stanley knife, a screwdriver I bought for 99p from Tesco, and a length of petrol hose I found in the bits-box in the boot that looked like it had never been used. I hav...

Re: Death of a Scimitar

In this case the thin nylon pipe is simply pushed into the rubber petrol line, and the two held with the fuel clip. I ran the engine and everything seemed fine (and much improved over the previous condition - being a return line it didn't affect the performance, but the fuel efficiency went down and...

Re: Death of a Scimitar

This: http://nuclear.warhead.org.uk/images/thingy01.jpg The line I mean is the one connected to the underside, that is barely visible in the picture. I took off the hose that was on there, which had split lengthways and had poured a vast sum of petrol downwards and thence onto the road, and the inne...

Re: Death of a Scimitar

At risk of resurrecting an old thread, what's the best way to join the thin nylon return line that comes out of the actual superstructure, to a the wider rubber line that comes out of the little fuel-returner widget (you know the widget I mean - the thingy shaped like a disk on a stick)? Having just...

Silicone hoses and ducting - http://www.apmotorstore.co.uk/

I had need to buy some new ducting for the air intake, and these chaps answered my queries quickly and did not try to push me towards the most expensive item. Delivery was pretty quick and what I bought matched the description of it on the webpage. Couldn't reasonably ask for more and if I have to b...

Re: Fuse & relay boxes - base plate

Don't forget me!

Will they come with a manufacturer's serial number carved into them? :)
