SS1 1800 CVH Project now running issues!

Having sorted out some of the schoolboy errors - not fully tightening wheel nuts with painted wheels, not taking the V5c to the MOT station when the car is not on the MOT data base ( still to be resolved - may due to error by supplying dealer!) Dropping the idle jet down the main jet tube - it's a t...

SS1 1800 CVH Project now fuel issues as well!

So it now starts OK - with your foot on the throttle. Seems to run OK for the first few seconds then it starts misfiring :? It won't run under 1500 rpm I've checked the carb jets - removed a little "fluff" Replaced 3 plugs (the car came with 4 boxes but 1 contained an old plug!) no difference. Remov...

SS1 1800 CVH Project Steering column length?

Well I've no idea what the column is off but it's definitely 38mm too short (1.5") It looks standard though and fits together OK. The stalks just miss the dash so I guess I'll be cutting the shrouds or I'll have to move the light switch.

SS1 1800 CVH Project Steering column issues!

Thanks Phil I got all excited for a minute but it's about 2.9 turns lock to lock (I measured and then looked it up -standard)
The rack has a Warranty void if removed sticker from R.G.L with serial no.
Below is photo of shaft from rack.

SS1 1800 CVH Project Interesting find!

While waiting for a new fuel filler hose as discovered leaking while trying to put some fuel in the tank, I thought I would "just" put on the steering column shroud. IMG_20200703_182235.jpg What's wrong with that? Well the column was about 25mm too short :!: So the key barrel would not fit in the ho...

SS1 1800 CVH Project Good news and Bad!

Well much to my surprise I managed to undo the crank pulley bolt and take the pulley off. On taking off the water pump there was a surprise in the impeller IMG_20200625_172754.jpg It looks like peas or berries :!: No idea how they got there. Water was pouring out but the only thing obvious is the ev...
