"A bit of a shed"

I've frequently heard cars described as "A bit of a shed" but this one must deserve some sort of prize BBC News Report

2-stroke english cars ?

The 1920's Trojan was a four cylinder two stroke - 'can you afford to walk' was their slogan Ah yes, I'd forgotten the Trojan! I should have remembered, as there's one around here which turns up from time to time at local shows. Here are some photos I took of it a few years ago - its engine and tra...

2-stroke english cars ?

Although not strictly a car, if he's into British two-strokes then his collection really ought to include a Commer TS3 powered truck. :) This was a rather mad 3-cylinder, 6-piston, 2-stroke, supercharged, diesel. A notable user is the Ecurie Ecosse transporter. :D

Expandable "Newest Posts' Section

Have you discovered the "Unread Posts" view? It's the third one down on the "Quick Links" menu. The first time you go in there, there will probably be rather a long list, if you haven't used it before. You can overcome that by using "Mark Forums Read" on the right hand side, but once you've done tha...

I can't seem to get the carb off at all. Whatever I used to fix it down last time must be strong!
I suspect that might be a clue - it's best to assemble the gaskets dry, or with just a smear of grease

Flat spot at 2500 RPM

Agree with Steve (CR) above - the transition between Idle and light throttle is handled by the progression holes - if you look inside the carb throat where the throttle plates are, there's the idle jet hole, opposite the idle mixture screw, which supplies the fuel for idle, then as the throttle plat...

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 ...

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...
