PAS rack adjustment.

This is on my SE6A with PAS. There is a small amount of play in the ball-joint of the track control arm. It's only just detectable at the root, but it multiplies up to about 3/8 of an inch at the wheel rim, which is unacceptable for the Controle Technique. The question is : can I take up the play by...

Right! I have finished re-fettling this little beastie: IMG_20180425_093250.jpg Now I can make a start on this one: IMG_20180425_093737.jpg Incidentally, our Drive-it Day is on Sunday 29 April, to co-incide with the National day of Patrimonie. We shall be joining the ARTS-70 club run out to the Jura...

P.S. protect your radiator with a big piece of corrugated cardboard.

La vie en Metro

Developed from the Mini, of course, with a lot of the Mini drawbacks designed out. I have quite a stock of 998/1000 Austin engine parts, Fred, and am at the moment rebuilding a complete engine/gearbox, so if you need anything give me a shout! :D Next task will be the replacement Essex for Candy! :ha...

Thinking of selling

Thoughts: You'll get at better price with a valid MOT. As to value, I would guess £5'000 in UK; about 7'000€ in France. :)

An aussie Essex???

Two Aussies were out hunting in the outback, and came upon a huge hole in the ground. They approached it and were amazed at its size and depth. The first said, "Wow, that's some hole. I can't even see the bottom. I wonder how deep it is." The second said, “There's an old gear box over there. Let’s t...

I'm not certain, but I think the change came with the introduction of the 6 series. Your carb could have been taken from a 5 or 5A.

Well that looks to me like the return pipe. If it comes out of the carb, just below the inlet pipe, its definitely the return, which should be connected all the way back to the tank. If its been blocked off by a PO , there could be several reasons: 1 he didn't understand what it was for; 2 the origi...
