IE9

Just upgraded to IE9 and notice that the pics don't show, just circulating icon. No problems elsewhere...

Re: SS1 / Volvo 240 Braided Brakepipes

I'd like to see the same photo but with opposite lock. In my opinion, the lines must pivot through the same axis as the whole hub assembly, thereby minimizing the change in length of the hoses.. Of course easier said than done! Beginning to think that my existing set with rear-facing outlet bent thr...

Re: 2011 Sprint Season - Look Out Trevor!

Congrats, That looks nice!
Interesting "Elbow" - does it connnect to original downpipe?
Would love to see some detailed pics - especially intercooler / rad layout.
And a list of "Things to watch out for / how solved" too.
My rebuild with DET is proceeding awfully slowly :(

Re: 1987 SS1 Ti

Yes. it does. Probably not difficult to fill. Lazy me just left the non-working arial there!
But it does avoid future maintenance and the aerial trying to extend when you've folded the hood over the boot lid.
In my view major benefit is no whistling noise at speed with hood down.

Re: 1987 SS1 Ti

Why not mount the aerial inside the left rear wing? Fix to lower rear chassis point (earth) and 45 degrees upwards over wheel arch. Can use a standard (cheap) non-telescopic, non-electric one. Works perfectly as the wing/boot have no metal content. No wind noise and no maintenance. It's only metal c...

Re: Google search?

I thought laterally (and even vertically) in every '$%^&íng direction I could think of and still couldn't find what I was looking for. Tried all sorts of combinations. Maybe fault was that I limited it to SS1/sabre forum, but am sure that was where it was.

Google search?

Don't know why, but I seem to be consistently unsuccessful with the search/advanced search function. Would it be possible to incorporate google search in our website? That might be much more useful. Just one example: I remember a post about the SS1 Ti petrol breather unit. Reviver posted "Like this?...

Re: A Rant On Fuel....

Why take 1983 as a base, price was unreasonble then too! I can remember complaints when the price rose so you no longer got 4 GALLONS TO THE POUND (about '70- ish I think). Expect there are quite some members who can go a lot further back! Its the same in NL, just keeps going up. Only alternative is...

Re: SS1 camber/castor/KPI

There is definately a visible difference in the top ball joint orientation!
I think "Factory" is with the ball joint outwards as far as possible. On one of my cars has it was the other way around giving negative camber - nice for cornering etc.

Make a proper job of the fuel lines. Replace the whole damn lot.

Re: SS1 / Volvo 240 Braided Brakepipes

Phil,
Geert-Jan had a set made here and also had problems. I think the secret is to have the crossover from hub to wishbone area in line with the axis of the upper/lower ball joints. Then there is minimal change of "length" as wheel swivels.

Re: Project: Scimitar Sabre - my fast road build

Nice looking car Paul!
So it looks like there are three of us going DET at roughly the same time, You, Raz and myself, I suspect Raz will have the fastest progress.

Re: 1987 SS1 Ti

Do you still have 9V when the wires are connected to the bulb? Probably not.
