Re: Fan Control Change

I have a Revotec on mine and set it to come on just below half way on the gauge. It usually runs at just over the quarter mark.

Re: Reduce the Tax exemption age for classic cars to 30 years

My concern is that if they roll it too far there may be a lot more folks buying old cars purely to avoid paying for tax/MOT and not caring about the cars.

It could change how the general public view classic cars, from generally liking them to being seen as a problem.

Re: Bench Test Headlight Motor

Agree with Hasbeen, almost all headlight problems are caused by dirty/bad connections, that is always your first go to solution. Check and clean the plugs behind each headlight in the engine bay and the earth connections on top of the chassis rails. Another common problem area is inside the main lig...

Re: DHC Free Road Tax 2021

My DHC was registered on 1st August 1981 but the build date on the Heritage Certificate is 29-31st July 1980 so I will be applying for Historic and Tax Free status in April this year.

Re: Aviation Gasket Sealant

My thoughts are similar to DarylM if you have used new gaskets and sealer I would suspect your leak is from the pump itself.

Re: Updated wiring diagram

Thanks Howard, your diagrams are so much better than trying to work from the originals.

I do sometimes use extracts and refer people to them quoting you as the originator, hope that is ok?

Re: Electric fuel pump

Like Hasbeen says you need a low pressure pump to suit SU carbs, I use one like this on my cars:-

Re: Inlet manifold/water pump

The little bypass tube with the rubber "O" rings is a favourite spot for a leak. Personally I think is always best to use new rings with a little smear of something like Hylomar and make sure it goes in carefully or you will be taking it all off again to stop a leak. Holding it all in plac...

Re: Fitting an immobilizer.

Friends of mine had a Lancia Integrale rally car and had the standard fitted imobilser fail which stranded them at the side of the stage in Belgium. Lost a good position as a result.

Re: Oil for rebuilt engine

Pretty much any of the good quality 20/50 oils are fine in our engines.
I am currently running Duckhams Q 20W-50 which was reformulated and relaunched a couple of years ago, before that I was using Castrol Classix XL 20W-50.
Prepared to bet you almost everyone on here will have a different opinion!

Re: Aviation Gasket Sealant

I had a replacement like the middle one, it leaked fuel from the top and would not seal. Very poor quality.
