Brake servo adjustment

Are we talking about the locating pin for the master cylinder? If so, it needs about 1mm gap to the end of the recess in the master cylinder. Too close and it could prevent the calipers or wheel cylinders releasing. That’s what I’ve set it at multiple times, and never had a problem. Many thanks for...

Brake servo adjustment

Is there a procedure for setting output shaft from brake servo. I have swapped my old servo for a secondhand unit and I cannot find any information re the setting of servo output shaft.

Many thanks,

38Dgas fuel return

Can you actually see into the return pipe, the hole may just be blocked with crud. The hole MUST be in the BRASS pipe, not Ally. The "disk" is the other end of the pipe, the end that's in the base of the hole in the ally. It's an integral part of the brass pipe stub ??? Not on the pipes I have pinn...

38Dgas fuel return

Close the float and blow through the bottom pipe, there should be air coming out of the top. Very strange in deed as I have never come across this before. And the brass pipe is Deffo a factory fitting as you can clearly see the distorted ring in the alloy at the base of the brass tubes. I cannot th...

38Dgas fuel return

As Jim says, it's a very tiny hole (may even be smaller than 1mm) - it would be quite a lucky shot if you managed to get a pin thin enough, into the hole at the opposite end of the brass fitting. I presume it's designed that way to allow the delivery pressure to be maintained, while allowing excess...

38Dgas fuel return

Are you sure it’s not drilled through? If it has a brass fitting it should be (although it’s a very small restrictor hole). If it’s not drilled, it should just be the alloy boss. I have tried 1mm probe and the centre is closed. I was about to install an electric fuel pump and I was going to rely on...

38Dgas fuel return

Yes, I saw from some of your previous posts that you had asked about Se6as :wink: Fuel returns were introduced at *roughly* the point of the Se6/6a changeover. There should be another number on the opposite side of the carb base (the autochoke side IIRC) - it should specify the carb type, eg 38DGAS...

38Dgas fuel return

The Coupe's and 5's do not have a return line - I cannot think it is so important Peter, the first half of your statement is correct, but the conclusion may be the wrong way round - perhaps it was important (especially in hot conditions) and that's why it was introduced in later (approximately Se6a...

Just seems strange to got to all the cost and effort of providing return fuel line to the tank and not using it.

38Dgas fuel return

Curious one. My car has fuel return piping from 38Dgas back to fuel tank but the return fitting on the carb has not been machined through and thus return is blanked off. Is this normal and do I have to drill out the return fitting to allow fuel to return to tank?

Many thanks for your help.

Wing mirrors

My drivers side mirror and plinth are in a very sorry condition and I do not have a passenger door mirror. Has anyone here found a replacement set of mirrors that look good and they would recommend. Not too fussed about having them adjustable from inside car. Thanks in anticipation. Keith

New windscreen is £365 plus VAT
Why is that relevant?
Not relevant but was a surprise. Only 2 listed as available in the UK and a three month turn round schedule for any after they have gone.

Is the car not insured? You only pay the excess for a new screen and it doesn't affect your no claims discount or premium.
That was my other route. Car insured fully comp but has £75 excess for the screen.
