Fume ingress

Thanks for all the replies. I had the roof off yesterday and it still stank! I think half the trouble is the carb isn't happy and it's running rather rich. I suspect float height. Unfortunately I had an issue with the carb before I left and damaged the gasket slightly taking the top off. Had no time...

Fume ingress

As I type this I am sat on the ferry over to the Isle of Mull, having driven about 500 miles in a car that was a bare chassis 17 days before the MOT, which was less than a week ago! So for the most part it's going well! I have however been plagued by exhaust fume ingress inside all day. Is this a co...

Wiper blades, what size?

GSF provided me with twin 15", clearly nowhere near. Measured the old ones as drivers 19", passenger 18". However there is a gap down the middle of the screen the wipers don't reach, so that's not right either. What should they be? 20" N/S and 21" O/S is what i think is on ours , not sure if that i...

Seat spacer help!

Found all the spacers, if my seat foam wasn't rather compacted it could have done without the top ones!

CVH ignition timing help!

I went with the 11 degrees, as that was the best I could get it to. Goes well, no pinking. Very odd, can't figure why I couldn't get any more adjustment. Cam belt couldnt be any easier to do, marks are definitely lined up. Odd that it was running 34 degrees previously on idle. Shame I didn't check i...

CVH ignition timing help!

Well I took the dizzy off. Removed the vacuum advance to get at the advance weights. All free. Cleaned it all up and put it back on. I can get 11 degrees at idle on full adjustment. It will do for now, but it can't be right. Also oil is leaking through the dizzy and into the cap. Anyone got a spare ...

CVH ignition timing help!

So the car is finally back together. MOT booked for Friday. Seemed over advanced when cranking so I stuck the timing light on it. 34 degrees on idle! I don't have enough adjustment in the distributer to get back to the correct spec for idle. Double checked the cam belt. Crank and cam bang on the tim...

Seat spacer help!

Thought I would remember where the spacers go when I took the seats out, no such luck!

Any pointers?

Thanks.

SS1 gearbox mount

That sounds like a good plan. 20mm ish Hole to allow access to the M10 holding the mount to the gearbox?
