Torque settings

It’s possible to pull the stud through the hub, so that figure sounds about right to me. Maybe alloys and steels require the same torque for that reason?

Oaksey's Bentley

Blimey you’re a brave man Josh, but what a great car to own. I remember when these were new cars back in 80’s. At that time I worked in a very swanky hotel in Alderley Edge, and these could often be found in the car park. The first time I saw one it was like seeing the Crown Jewels for the first tim...

Corky's Scimitars and other short stories

However...... :lol: Whilst looking for other bits, I've unearthed some CA18DET coil packs and an ECU that I didn't know I had. Must've bought them for the white SS1. This led to the eBay purchase of an ignitor module and coil pack frame, solving the ignition conundrum got me onto the issues with low...

I think I’m swayed towards the coil pack and HT lead solution. It’s what StewB fitted to Craig’s monster. So if it works on that, I’ve got no worries.

Corky's Scimitars and other short stories

So I'm back looking for an ECU :lol: I've narrowed the choice down to either Omex 600 or the Haltech Elite 750. Both have their pros and cons, and I've found reputable dynos that can do either. Prices are very similar, when you factor in sensors, connectors and loom options. (link to Haltech's info)...

Intermitent indicators

You are in grave danger of passing an MOT with it in that condition. However if it’s a BMW or an Audi the opposite is true.... :wink: :mrgreen: :w

Corky's Scimitars and other short stories

Cheers Mikey. I forgot to say that I bought a bag of five, if anyone needs one. Next job was to take all of the valves out the head, fit new stem seals and lap the valves back in. It took me 9 hours ! At least 8hrs and 59 minutes of that seemed to be fiddling with the bloody collets :lol: Then I cle...
