Stuttering / Cutting out, petrol starvation

As well as running it without the filter (which I would definitely try too), the logical next step would be to run it with a straightforward gravity feed from your jury-rigged petrol tank, straight to the carb. No filter, no pump, just a plain piece of pipe? The ultimate "Keep it Simple" philosophy ...

Yes, it was the arrival of Burton's annual piece of temptation that alerted me to them! :lol:

I suspect somebody made a mistake with their copy & paste as it says the same for the twins?

Jenvey Heritage DCOE TBs

This might possibly be of interest to members with Sabres, or Straight 6 Coupe. I see Jenvey have started making throttle bodies which replicate the external appearance of the Weber DCOE range, so that you can obtain the fueling advantages of modern injection, while keeping the appearance of your cl...

GTC Hood cover panel

Mark, excuse me asking, but are you sure it was "Plastiguage"? I've used that myself, and it's fairly fragile and used for precise measuring of the assembled clearance of things like big ends and main bearings. I can't imagine it being strong enough for that kind of use? Here's a link to Plastiguage...

Trying to start...after a year or two

Hi Pete, glad you're still about! :) I suspect you're getting a bit ahead of yourself with some of that? If you haven't got a spark at the king lead, then timing is irrelevant - timing is concerned with distributing the spark delivered from the king lead, into the individual spark plug leads, at the...

Bet you wish it was the Coventry Climax one heading for the skip...... :lol: or fire brigade enthusiast (yes they do exist). Funnily enough, I do know a fire brigade enthusiast through Southern Classics. He has at least two, a Land Rover and a Dennis, in rare Sussex Yellow :D 5N4A0358.jpg 5N4A2581.j...

Indicators Not Indicating

Earths are always a good place to start, especially with the rear lights. The standard earth path runs from the bulb, through the sprung fingers on the holder, into the lamp body and there to earth. Plenty of potential points of failure. Many people have added separate earth wires from each bulb hol...

Thanks. Same size all round, 7x14. Only one with the rim marking though so assume one original and 3 copies - other than the stamp can't tell any difference.....
7x14 weren't original fit, so more likely they were all fitted later. They look good though! :D

Do they not use screws that are enclosed in the towers ?
That's what I thought too, though I haven't studied all the varieties?

inconsistant starting or consistant non starting!

As feedback, on monday night I once again ran engine to temp and cycled on cooling fan for while. The car occasionaly stalled after the spark tester dimmed, but re-started straight away. I then switched off and left to simmer for 10 mins with bonnet down. It then reluctantly started with the tester...
