Vehicle Clearout

Car market is flat on its backside at this time of year IMHO. Just picked up a vehicle I've been after for a long time, never seen so many of them available privately at one time and it seems no one has the cash to buy with. Plug on with it, or focus your efforts on marketing one at a time properly....

SS1 1800?CVH Project Carb questions

Looks like the auto choke internal white plastic cam assembly has broken up or is doing so. I've got a few NOS auto choke assemblies here if you wanted one. Otherwise maybe look at a manual choke kit. Jetting wise you are probably ok to start off with the standard 1600 setup and work from there, dou...

Manny's SS1 1600

Check the back of the clock set for damaged sections on any parts of the laminated circuit. Rev counter INOP is usually because there's a crack in the section running around the corner to the back of the dial.

Could well explain your coolant temp gauge issue also.

Trial SS1

My engine is raised up a tad using 45mm MK2 Escort engine mounts and then spaced equally under the gearbox mount to suit. Even so the sump is still slightly below chassis rails IIRC.

Much beyond that and you may well have bonnet clearance issues.

SS1 1800?CVH Project

Regarding the sump, 1800 CVH were rear bowl only. It is likely that it has a standard FWD CVH sump and either the block or sump have been redrilled to suit.

Repaired Chassis

There's not a huge demand, purely on the basis that so few owners are capable or prepared to do a full strip and swap. Anyone wanting a replacement chassis would likely want it in a good to go / ready to fit state. Always a shame to scrap a good repairable chassis / vehicle, but realistically it is ...

SS1 1800?CVH Project

The 1.8 also has roller bearings in the rockers - that’s a 1.6 IMHO. Peter already stated the head is stamped 1.6 1.6 head on a 1.8 bottom end has been done plenty of times before. With the 1.6 head being considered the better item for performance. No expereince of European 1.8 CVHs so can't be of ...

SS1 Footwell mats

Sorry, meant that to read in respect to them being previously available from multiple dealers. You are unlikely to find a set new now.

SS1 Footwell mats

Black ones with yellow embroidery from QRG currently.

Previously grey with red embroidery. These were IMHO a nicer mat and slightly longer. Possibly available from all dealers as R Part accessory?

Steel wheel on, drop it to the deck and tighten it with the whole car holding it is my usual method.
