And so it begins

PAS trunnions generally have no need of lock stops which is why they are not drilled and tapped from new. Only the manual needs them and new trunnions are tapped ready.

On another note. I need some decent fuel pipe have you got it in stock?
I have lots of 6mm and maybe 4m of 8mm currently. Stainless hose clips are due in to stock fairly soon.

That piece fits over the tunnel and folds under the rear seat squab.

no brakes

When was the last time you changed the fluid? Over a couple of years it absorbs water. Then under pressure, the water turns to steam and of course steam is more compressible than brake fluid.

6a Front Suspension - back to standard height?!

Well spotted! I hadn't spotted that until you mentioned it. Looks to me like they have been running ungreased, judging by those threads.

One bank warmer than other

But as 50% of the inlet manifold is internal a brake cleaner test wont work . have you got a smoke generator ?
The brake cleaner test is for gaskets leaking to atmosphere. Any induction leak will create a vacuum and so will suck in the fuel spray. Any induced fuel will affect the engine note.

Is there really any point in posting issues when somebody tells me to check the tyre pressure.
I think it is known as humour. Doesn't hurt to have a giggle once in a while.

inlet manifold leak causing weak mixture ?
Yes very likely. I can hear this car whistling on the overrun, yet the brake cleaner test passes! Still investigating.

One bank warmer than other

I’ve no idea why tyre pressures can affect exhaust temperatures either. I can only assume Darryl has been on the sauce. Could well be mixture is unbalanced across both banks - or a misfire on the right hand bank? I have a car in at the moment where the exhaust gas is cooler on one bank. The mixture...

Vinegar used to flush cooling system

The fan needs to be set just above the temperature at which the thermostat opens, most Scimitar fans are set at just over 90C. That having been said, one of my bikes opens at 85C but the fan comes on at 105C with overheat warning at 115C.

SS1 1800 Ti No Sparks

I’ve got a GM 6.5TD in the motorhome which has partial electronic control of the diesel pump with “an” optical sensor inside it (and I’ve had a strange cutting out issue). Just wondered if it might be the same one as I suspect diesel timing needs to be pretty good. A sillyscope would show up issues...

Driving test reality check

The biggest myth with driving instruction is that you are taught to "pass the test" rather than being taught to drive correctly. Watch any street corner with traffic turning... Apart from professional and blue light drivers (not all sadly) the majority seem to think that crossed hands is acceptable ...

That 6b looks about as far removed from a project as it is possible to get - and I now have a space in my garage :roll: . Fortunately it is far away (or is it just small?) but I have found myself looking up flight details.... :w
It may be possible to get someone to deliver it for you. :W :W
