Sprouts!

I can think of nothing worse than curried anything. It annoys me that so much supermarket food is full of spices, salt and peppers or even worse Chilli pepper. What was the big problem with actually tasting what you are eating? I end up (when 'indoors gives me chance) cooking from scratch which I p...

I also need to check on how to use the strobe, I noticed the pointer thingy on the bottom pulley thingy... but how does one see when there is so much stuff in the way? I believe the official guide quotes 15 degrees? Does the ECU and it's attendant sensors, optical thingy etc. Advance the timing aut...

rotate the spring so it misses.
Since the lower end of the spring locates in a recess in the lower wishbone, that's not possible.

Windscreen storage - horizontal OK?

Since glass remains in a fluid state and is never truly solid, suspect that if store flat any curvature will change over time making the screen harder to fit. Yes, I wondered about that too but suspect that it would take more than just a few years to have a noticeable effect. However currently layi...

Windscreen storage - horizontal OK?

Have 2 SS1 windscreens that have long been stored in spare room but now have to find a another place to live.
Windscreens are normally stored in vertical plane. Is it ok to store windscreens laying flat long-term?
I could try to provide some support at the middle I guess.

Kinda got a bit serious ... I had the choice of learning the language that I got 3% in O-level or Arabic. I therefore chose the latter and have never regretted it!
Do you mean to say that Arabic is easier than French? (Or was necessity maybe the driver!)

MoT and headlight dip

As I was going up to loft for the SS1 winter wheels, I took opportunity of taking photo of RHD headlamps and then the LHD ones in my car...... Mirrored ( but not precisely) dipped beam pattern is quite evident. Interestingly both have text "Lucas Foreign Glass" And now I see UK headlights marked "H4...

Long time lurker and once again 1800TI owner

Well if they've been replaced in last few years it shouldn't be a problem. It's when the original lines are still there that the problem is urgent. If you remove the fuel filter, examine the inside of te rubber tubing for incipient splits/cracks. Nylon lines are normally OK but the joint from nylon ...

Long time lurker and once again 1800TI owner

Thank you Mr. Oakes. I shall have a look through my red book as I have no idea where the fuel filter is... Does it matter where you get the dizzy cap etc. From? Dom If you're replacing fuel filter then also replace rubber fuel supply tubing to and from it. (Pig of a job to get to joint over gearbox...

td99 got a significant improvement on his by simply fitting relays to the dipped beam circuit.
Yes see http://www.scimitarweb.co.uk/sgwrs/view ... f=4&t=4632

I also fitted Bi-Xenon lamps but that was an incredible fiddle due to headlamp movement. LED woud be much more attractive now.

iMac buying help please !

IMHO your're/She're better off buying a nice mac laptop and a 34 in hires 3440*1440 monitor. Better screen and better flexibility although might cost a bit more.

Ford's SS1

Any tips on checking alignment of the headlights for MOT, by the way? pair of crosses on inside of garage door :-) gets it 'ish' then leave the covers off until you take it to MoT and ask them nicely to twiddle as required :wink: Then when it's adjusted by MOT man, park it in garage and draw lines ...
