Curbrough Compies Meeting

I somehow missed this post, but I've not got anything to add to the above.

I'll be there for the meeting, as I'm staying at the Premier Inn down the road on Sat night (nothing I need to rush off for).

GTC 404 - Kenlow fan not switching off

I think I had the fan wired through the original cabling and otter switch when I had 404.

GTC Vert Soleil

Didn't realise you were still on the Pierburg. If you have a Weber available to try, give that a whirl. In my limited experience of PBs, I found that tapping the large nut at the front of carb with a suitable sized hammer, unsticks the widget inside and normal service is resumed temporarily until it...

Peter's SS1 Sprint Car

With the actuator in its closed position, are you sure that the wastegate is firmly closed ? Also have you tried opening and closing the wastegate by pressurising/depress' the actuator ?

Trailer brakes

I'd have a word with Mark W, "gtcse8" is his forum name. He knows an awful lot about trailers and their braking systems. He gave me some great pointers regarding my Brian James car transporter.

The mirror is held in place by ball and socket joints. So it will pop out with careful leverage. However, getting it back in is possibly one of the most frustrating jobs you'll ever do on your car. You have been warned :lol:

Manny's SS1 1800 Ti

All those hoses need to be connected. That includes the one to the rocker cover. Air leaks in these are often discovered when a Ti starts to run a bit rough.

Well done getting it running though :hurrah: 8)
