The Racy Red Bakery Truck.

I havnt read all the way back through but wasn’t there a low oil pressure issue in the past too?

Does seem that unfortunately the only real solution will be full strip down.

At least you have easy access to a known spare!

Good luck mate

Proposed Drives Meeting January

efi_sprintgte ? I don’t intend to upset anyone and the written word can be taken in a manner other then intended but do we need a drivers meeting at all? The SSSC is simply acedemic now. Personally I intend to run in CM (as Craig says it doesn’t suit my car at all) and simply concentrate on scratch...

"Mighty" SE6 - Rock and Roll!

Is it a new symptom? I have had filters with issues but to be honest it sounds more like bottom end wear. Might be worth just chucking your other filter on and seeing if it goes away. See if 20w60 restores the pressure abit (one engine we had went on for about 50,000 miles before we eventually gave ...

"Mighty" SE6 - Rock and Roll!

What rpm is it showing when the pressure drops out?

I would go down the EFL90 oil filter and maybe some penrite 20W60 route to see if that cures the issue

I suspect there would be a huge demand for new sets of footwell carpets only (for all models) if they were reasonably priced - perhaps we should look at a group buy with one of the suppliers?
I would be happy with a set of front footwell carpets

I used to use winter tyres on a old set of wolfies I powder coated silver.


Then had the polished set for summer/shows.

I agree with RR, just get some cross climates on your existing wolfies if budget is tight.

Knocking and a-clunking

The offside exhaust downpipe is knocking against a 'triangular' bracket on the chassis. I shaped a 3mm thick lead sheet and inserted it snugly into the gap, which cured the knocking. But at some point it has fallen out, so the knocking is back! Does anyone have a more sophisticated (and long-term) ...
