Very lumpy when cold

Took took the Coupe to a carb specialist and ended up getting a new carb. Apparently it was completely worn out. It’s now set up properly. Starts from cold on the button no lumpiness. It drives a lot smoother and is more responsive and it idles significantly lower than before. It’s mad that one thin...

Alloy Timing Wheel fitted

For the noise issue, if indeed it is an issue: Are you using a manual fuel pump? If you are, then the pump lever might be touching the back of the timing wheel. I had this issue on mine as the pump had a lever was a folder over steel assembly and was too wide. It was an awful racket though, and obv...

Alloy Timing Wheel fitted

Hi Richard, It is a one man job. I did it with my mechanic as I wanted to learn about my car. It took us (me) about 6hrs but I took my time. I had to remove a few bracing struts/cross members on the Coupe to get decent access. We put a puller into the two opposing holes on the fibre wheel and wound ...

Alloy Timing Wheel fitted

My engine was fitted with a new fibre wheel. When I spoke with the person that rebuilt the engine he considered them a service item! So yesterday a new alloy one was fitted which I got from QRG. It makes a right racket on startup :lol: We tried to do it without removing the sump, but what an awkward...

Very lumpy when cold

Thanks for the suggestions as she’s going into the garage next week for alloy timing gear I will get this issue looked at. She always started perfectly on a fast idle no lumps from cold. This has crept in over the past few months regardless of the outside temp. I am hoping it’s something that needs ...

Very lumpy when cold

Hi gents, I am after a bit of advice please on my Essex Coupe. Its a problem that’s got gradually worse and has built up over the past two months. On a cold start up if it’s left overnight it’s very lumpy for up to 1 minute now, like it’s only firing on one bank, rough as a badgers, sounds like a Ma...

March 2019 issue of Classic & Sports Car magazine, Scimitar content

The March 2019 issue of Classic & Sports Car magazine landed on my mat thi Then on page 55 another picture, this time a stunning red 5 used by Martin Buckley to illustrate a rather uncomplimentary article about Scimitars and how they share the same engine as Capri's, loved by Royal's and other cele...
