The word on the streets of wales

In my first year in NL, visiting Cologne, I carefully noted the name of the street where I parked "Einbahnstrasse" :oops: :oops:

"Mighty" SE6 - Rock and Roll!

After winter tyres, if you're really serious (and have the cash...) get an LSD. Transforms the rear-lightweight SS1 in snow and slippery damp conditions, so no doubt also great in a breadvan. In my view FWD gives a driver overconfidence in snow etc, accelerates better but brakes same or worse, resul...

EU fuel labelling

They claim it will help one to select correct fuel when in another country, but I don't see it will help much as both 95 and 98 octane fuels are marked "E5". At least it will be easier to avoid "E10" poison.

G130 YCF my first sprint car

Standard shafts fit straight into the Quaife when fitted to std diff. Just remember that they are different lengths and which one goes where!

CVH/Nissan/K series all use different tanks - the core is possibly the same though.

Edit - not 100% sure K series isn’t the same as CVH but can’t check atm :D
surely you mean RAD, tank has no core ... and as far as I know all shared tank of the day.

I don't see why we should remove his posts. He made them. Why should we try to erase history? Facts are facts.

Re-placing & re-route fuel pipes

I used rubber on one, copper on other, pipes engine bay to pump but original route. PITA! Peter F's suggestion to just run them down the driver's side seems best long-term solution to me. They can pass gearbox at top or bottom inside the chassis tunnel and easy to access. Pump on rear chassis rail i...

Car history

Could this be an interesting thread, short and succinct history of car ownership with a one-liner per car?
I'll start it off, but I'm sure there are many who have much more impressive histories...
Seems that site won't accept word/excel table format so it's a picture :-(

C313FHB , SS1 no#437

Can you get replacement discs with the bearings already fitted? Disc can be removed from hub by 4 bolts. Need to buy new bearings separately and fit to hub - only available from GW or QRG. Discs also from QRG/GW, never from internet as those will not fit. Better still fit the chevette/volvo/carlton...

DRIVING in EU

Ah , the so-called consistency of the European union - you will still need to have used alcohol tests in your car if you're coming into France. What in God's name is the point of having an unused alcohol test kit . Pissed if I know :P Of course, what else you may need to have available in other EU c...
