Swoakes SS1 DET Sprint Car

Is an aftermarket non-return valve fitted to the tank breather pipe? I think the original one does allow excess air/vapour pressureto creep out of tank, just not liquid flow or a great rate of air flow. Pressure build-up due to increased temperature could cause the problem if tank breather not worki...

1800 Ti fuel consumption

The motorway performance is hard to resist,perhaps I ought to try harder :D An SS1 does not get the respect on the road it should have. I love it when that f'ing diseasel has finally pulled over to let me pass and i see the tell-tale puff of smoke that he's just floored it to try it on. And then ju...

1800 Ti fuel consumption

Most of my mileage is around town in 2-3 km journeys so car doesn't really get warmed up and then it's in the 20's. After a decent motorway journey it feels and sounds like a different car - smoother and quieter! Then in the 30's, but I do enjoy the acceleration feeling! However, the exhaust is alwa...

underbonnet smoke

Local turbo specialist in the Netherlands. I could ask him for the part no and where it came from (UK I think!) if necessary

underbonnet smoke

I had same problem with oil leaking out of turbo, mostly inlet side.New overlapping seals, refacing of some bits and re-balanced. Was fine for a couple of years but then came back. After some tests etc, replaced centre turbo housing with a new one (non-water-cooled as original was not available) and...

Corky's Scimitars (....currently sprint car fettling )

I think the wear of the "Wotsit" if that's the bit or rubber at top of quarterlight is non-essential. It's all to do with does the window glass seal up against the rubber seal of the hard/soft-top I've had old and new "Wotsits" and really the difference in Zilch. Glass needs to close against rubber ...

TD's Daily Ti thread - renewed mojo!

Update on Tappets etc. Still hear an occasional odd sound every now and then when cold, like HT misfire as well as continual high tappet noise. Modified the dial gauge support to provide better alignment to measuring direction, better fixing and less flexibility and reset tappets as cold. Subsequent...

Or drill deeper and extend the thread and use longer stud. That would be my first choice. Even if you drill through to inside, you can seal the thread.

Corky's Scimitars (....currently sprint car fettling )

Just examined the original pipe removed from the car (Original fitted by Reliant) and it has no restriction at all, about 1/8 in inside dia all along. (I thought it was leaking and replaced it by one from QRG, but subsequently found the oil was coming from the distributor cap... sorry for thread hij...
