Re: ..we knew...

The old blokes prejudice continues then... Ant had close association with Robsport restoring an SD1 during the Channel4 series a few years ago. We'll see what he says to the camera about our plastic fantastic dashboards. :D Any other inside information? On the way to meet up with a few of the local ...

Re: ..we knew...

This will be interesting.....I wonder how they'll comment on the styling and the performance. IIRC the US federal variants had less bhp than in Europe and Californian spec less than federal? With a 7 are they going to be fixing the basics or possibly dropping in a V8? Compared to some of the stuff t...

Re: Holley 390CFM carb leaking.......

Interesting youtube video from RPi engineering on how they set up their Edelbrock carbs to suit your engine spec before despatch. Removing needles and springs etc. As discussed all overview the interweb, you're basically removing the lid on the carb and working from above, as opposed to a Holley whe...

Re: Hesitation after a corner

Carburettor Fuel bowl float levels correctly adjusted? Needle valves free of wear ridges. No stiction in the mechanisms? It's been a while since I've had to maintain SU carbs.

Re: Hesitation after a corner

Does your electric pump have an integral filter? Tank rust can be a very fine dense powder and can move around with the cornering and acceleration forces blocking the flow.

I had this issue with my V8. I had no idea there was an integral filter to protect the pump until I opened it up.

Re: Hesitation after a corner

Daft question.

Does this occur equally when exiting a left or right hand bend? Is the hesitation immediate or a few seconds afterwards?

Re: Holley 390CFM carb leaking.......

If a Holley's what you have then you can work with it, or for an extra £450 - £500 go down the Edelbrock route and work with that.

Re: Holley 390CFM carb leaking.......

Hi Falcon, Real Steel in Uxbridge is one of the better sources of Holley parts in the U.K. They were also the only source of 390cfm of base plates / throttle spindle assembly when I needed one. I bought my low mileage V8 with a Holley on top about 30 years ago and there are perishable items, hence t...

Re: Gearbox tunnel sound deadening - fitting

I was able to remove the 2.0L engine and gearbox from above complete with carbs, exhaust manifold, starter etc as per Mr Haynes fairly easily, (I didn't expect the front suspension to rise as much as it did when lifting the engine - hence the air out of the front tyres) so I reckon it should go back...

Re: Gearbox tunnel sound deadening - fitting

Hi John, I'd been reading your blog for some time but embarrassingly didn't connect it to your posts or ID on the forum! I admire your goal for originality. I'm part way through welding a '94 Mini Cooper that's taken years so far. I agree with your sentiments, it's not one project but hundreds of sm...

Re: TR7 Hazard Flasher Relay Location

IIRC on my DHC, undo the locational screws on the fuse box and it can be slid downwards behind the dashboard a few inches in to the footwell for better access.

Re: TR7 - The public like them.

I'll dare to take an opposing view, both my 7/8 and 928 have pop up headlights, Both look totally ridiculous with the lights up. Probably because they both look like eyes on stalks....... I always liked the lights on the AlphaRomeo Montreal. Not true pop ups but certainly different. Saab Sonnet or ...

Re: Gearbox tunnel sound deadening - fitting

I must confess I don't remember a noise insulation pad on the underside of my DHC. I've replaced the propshaft with a modified SD1 item and I had lots of scraped knuckles replacing the remote gearstick housing bushes a few years ago. How far back does this insulation reach?

Re: Gearbox tunnel sound deadening - fitting

Hi John, The fixing you describe sounds similar to those on my DHC. A metal pin fused to the bulkhead, pokes through the rubber sound deadening pad, and a flat washer gripping it in to place in the foot wells. Maybe there's something suitable these guys can offer. I've used them a few times for non ...
