why hide the reg number and chassis number on the 'list of details' then add a photo of both :shock:
A web crawler could read the list details, but not the photos (Like a Captcha).

He has done a 63 sec MP4 vid of the pressure gauge (RPM shown at 51 sec) but I don't know if I can put 145MB on here.

Fluctuating Oil Pressure

Thanks, gents. He can read your replies (I assume),but he wrote yesterday: "New oil pump - so wear v unlikely. New valve guides and pistons into re-bored cylinders so blow-back unlikely. New bearings. Direct oil pressure gauge, not electric. No leak from the pipe connecting engine to gauge. It has b...

Presumably it’s the original oil fed gauge and not an electric one?
Not sure on that, Jim, but will ask.
Many thanks Trevor & Jon - plenty there for him to investigate.

Fluctuating Oil Pressure

If it's not allowed to ask Qs on behalf of non-members, Mods please delete this. An acquaintance has an MG B and is puzzled by an oil pressure problem. He has described it (twice) as follows: "Rather strange oil pressures - 60 when running at >2500 revs but occasionally, when idling and hot, the gau...

Tesco car park today, large SUV (passed too quickly to note) reg. 148
I'm sure I've asked about this before here, but can't remember the answer: where registers a car with just three digits?

There “should” be a thick gasket about 1/4” thick from memory..
Back 30 again, mine definitely didn't have a thick gasket. Wouldn't it have effectively shortened the pump stroke, Phil?

SE5a - the roller coaster ride continues

About thirty - 30? :shock: - years ago when I had a 5a, I had the same trouble. Cured by replacing the standard pump with an electric one pushing from a back box, and doing a bit of ventilation bits for the engine room.
Seemed to do the trick..... :)

Just for the SSSC gang -especiallyMikey!

Entertaining! :D
I pitied the poor marshals who had to keep rebuilding the chicane. Only a small minority of the cars seemed to be able to go through it safely; the rest appeared not to even realise it was there! :roll: ( I assume the drivers had had a pre-run to note the chicane,etc.....)
