Unwanted cookie notice?

I've had it once on each device I use (phone, laptop and iPad) - just logged out and back in and I don't get it now?

I'm assuming it's something Ian has dropped in yesterday as I don't recall seeing it before then. I assume you clicked the "Got It" button, not just closed the box?

Ben's (an emotional quandry) 1975 SE5a

I'd say swap the boxes - whilst the fork isn't marvellous, it might be indicative of another problem in the same box (like weak/missing springs in the hub)?

Stuttering / Cutting out, petrol starvation

Might it be worth trying the plain plastic spacer that came with the service kit as a test just to be sure its not the 'W' block that's at fault. Pommy I had a hairline crack in a W block on one car (it was an Auto as well) - the crack would open up after periods of idling or running in slow traffi...

Spegru SE6a

Only real difference is the chassis is 3” wider, so the manifolds are different to come out another 3” before sweeping down. That’s why you can’t fit 5/a manifolds to a 6/a (the body is in the way) or the other way round as the main chassis rails interfere.

If you get a squirt of fuel from the accelerator pump when operating the throttle (engine off, of course) will check if you have some fuel in the float chamber, but not necessarily if it’s at the right level.

Just remove the rear crossbrace under the sump - it only bolts in (and was left out post-72 anyway).

Just the metal bits should be fine - it's the sleeve that tends to rust to the bolt, giving fun and games in the future. A quick dust of Waxoyl on the rubber mounting faces could work to prevent any squeaks. Whatever some might say about the traders, they will have the right part, and know how to se...
