ss1 classic targa rally car

Lost somewhere in the project section is my SS1 1300 which I was tinkering with in a similar vein a couple of years ago.

The post here plots nicely the real world difference of head and cam combinations.

ss1 classic targa rally car

There are certainly a lot of badly "ported" heads out there. I take anything said by a Ford owner with a serious pinch of salt. "It's a stage 3 big valve head mate" yeah ok if you say so. Looks like a standard head with the port mouths gouged out to match the oversize gaskets :doh: A bit of work wit...

Ss1 roll bar or cage

I could be tempted into selling my half cage as it is currently surplus to requirement.

SST H993WGF

Few weekends work. 2011-12 difference.jpg Int b and a .jpg I suppose the difference is, someone like me has racks full of the right parts. Where as buying all the bits to make good outright would potentially be a costly exercise. Still. That bluebird turbo engine is begging for a big top mount turbo...

If you thought the eBay pics flattered it you clearly didn't look hard enough! Par for the course innit? Looks no worse than I was expecting, and to be fair with things like the trailing arms, what's a bit more rust when they need refurbishing any way? Depends if you want an SST as a minty show car,...

ss1 classic targa rally car

I wouldn't be so quick to decry the OE cooling fan Phil. In my opinion it's far better than most cheap ebay type direct to core offerings. It may look like a small "fan" but the blades are steeply pitched and they certainly seem to shift the air. It's hardly a piddly little motor in there either. Wo...

The sump can be done in situe by jacking the engine up as high as it will go.

The CVH is a bit of a harsh engine, not sure there is much you can do to improve that!

As for the fan, not sure why you are blowing both fuses, but if it's drawing a greater current then a relay is the answer.

1990 SS1 Netherlands

Bit steep, but not wildly far out. Would want to know where the door cards have gone, but otherwise looks like a complete and unmolested late galv 1600. A clean up would do wonders I'm sure!

Out and About with JOAN

I think there is something very refreshing about seeing a 5 series GTE with tidy styling cues in a soft clean and subtle colour.

I see JOAN very much as being brisk and tidy thing, which seems very in keeping with the driver.

Well, it's pushed beyond what I was prepared to go to so I'm stepping out of the bidding! Now to get on with nattering. Firstly. This is 10 minutes from the family home in RG10, and I have even had tyres fitted at one of the units in the background. I can't believe it has (presumably) been lurking t...

No comment?

Well, you are the first to comment.

Could have given us a better title to go by!

Webster brakes - recognise them ?

Worry not, that is entirely standard for the Robin setup. Many tens of thousands made like it! Once the shoes are adjusted up and in use there is actually not that much movement at the cylinder. I wouldn't get too hung up on the copper brake pipes thing either. I appreciate that copper can work hard...

TI gearbox oil

Likewise between work and family it's a struggle to get anything done in the garage here. And I gather Crispy-one is a proper business with wearing of suits and not just telling people to bugger off with their problems. As and when, there will always be time for dicking about with old cars and chasi...

TI gearbox oil

Out of interest, has Sir Hughes got much to say on the MK1 box (referred to by the Nissan mob as the type "B" I believe?) in terms of competitive use, strength, pitfalls etc? There seems to be a way of modifying the gear stick to get a short throw on the MK1 also. Just requires the sourcing of a Nis...
