Re: Which fire extinguisher

Got any photos Phil? All the plumbed-in systems I see seem to be over £500 - I guess thats because they're motorsport-approved.

Re: Which fire extinguisher

Well I guess lining of the engine bay with ally may slightly inhibit combustion of the body, but probably not much. So perhaps, given the speed at which these could go up, a plumbed-in CO2 system may be the best bet. Activated from the passenger compartment for speed, no need to lift the bonnet and ...

Re: Which fire extinguisher

There was an old discussion on this forum a few years ago, where Roger King was basically saying that AFF foam extinguishers would be the best thing to carry. So that's what I bought - though I got a 2 litre one which I think is too big and will go in the garage - I'll get a 1 or 1.5 litre one. That...

Re: Lucas L542 rubbers

Thanks for the replies guys and for checking your stores Migge!

Re: Cranleigh Classic - August

Thanks again Peter! I didn't get home very successfully unfortunately. Electrical fault within a few miles of Cranleigh caused the engine to die, and I cruised to a halt in a country lane outside a house. After 10 minutes of me and my passenger scratching our heads, two pre-war MGs and an MG midget ...

Re: Lucas L542 rubbers

Thanks guys - I'll check cobra restorers out. Though I realised I should ask Gerry too - he may have spares.

Lucas L542 rubbers

Hi all -
Anyone know where (or rather, if) I can purchase these rubbers from anywhere, without having to actually buy a pair of lamps as well? I've got two original ones but they're a bit perished and I doubt they will seal very well.

These bits:

2.5" versus 3" exhaust

I think the original cobras had 2.5" exhaust systems, is that right? I think the Hawk one is a 3" one (not actually measured it though - maybe I need to recalibrate my eye). Anyway, I thought this piece of testing by Hotrod magazine was quite interesting: https://www.hotrod.com/articles/engine-maste...
