Brake worries

Would that reduce pressure to the front calipers as well. There is no forceful pressure when bleed open and brake pedal pressed hard. I wonder about the master cylinder. I only duplicated the seals directions on the master cylinder when changing them but I wonder if they could have been installed wr...

Brake worries

Would that be the part listed in Graham Walkers Catalogue as "Failure sensitive pressure reducing valve"? If so where abouts would that be hiding?

How about the pressure compensator on the chassis
What the devil. I never even new there was a compensator. Surely that could be the basis of all the problems. Many many thanks.

Brake worries

You could try cracking the pipe unions of the pipes on MC in first instance. Ensure fluid comes through these first,tighten them back up and bled brakes at each corner. Also using the pedal to pump and bleed first may also help. Phil Many thanks for that. I actually bled the mc on the bench and I h...

GTE 6A 1977 Tie rod lever/steering arm

Yes it is pas. I may have a solution. I have a local engineering firm who believe they can machine out the sheared bolt and re tap. Amazing how it survived as I believe the bolt sheared and it was still driven around with a sheared bolt and the other bolt was bent and twisted. Fingers crossed becaus...

Carb service.

Many thanks for your input, much appreciated. It was interesting to note that nobody suggested modifications to the existing carb which indicates that it is a good carb. The mention of the fuel pipe being secured was worrying as both ends of the fuel feed pipe were standard fuel pipe just pushed on ...

Carb service.

Have a Weber 38 DGAS carb fitted to a 1977 SE6A which has been stood for 18 years and obviously in need of a good service and I have a number of questions from those in the know. Are there any mods or changes you would make to improve the standard carb. Would you suggest sending to professional refu...

Fibreglass resprays

Had a break from working on the electrics so thought I would start paint prep and found these.

It is almost as if she has a bad case of acne. Should I be worried or just sand out and paint over.
