Re: Ford 302 timing

Andrew, You will only know an accurate figure by having it on a rolling road to prove what is best for the engine taking in to account the design of cam, heads and distributor curve. Sounds like you are around the ball park figure needed although melting Easter Eggs is hardly indicative of too much ...

Re: Silverstone Classic 2019

Having just traversed the A43 past Silverstone twice recently I would advise everyone to be circumspect in their speed. I noticed that the speed cameras are of the Travelo type, which by the time you see the box it’s too late as they face you to take the photo. The triggers are buried in the road su...

Re: Well, that didn't fit

Hi Nige, Do you use a block of hard foam or plaster of Paris to create the initial shape. Looks like you have chosen the moulded in and not the riveted on look. I thought the dellortos were lower than the equivalent Weber’s. It would certainly be nice to see the completed set up. I still wonder why ...

Re: Goodwood Revival attendance 2019

Hi Glen, If you had anything to do with the military in the US then why not wear your old uniform? Or perhaps a tweed cap and jacket and dark grey trousers ( sorry pants) I’m sure that you can check on the web for suitable photos from previous years. Your better half can either go for the glamorous ...

Re: Trimmer recommendations in Farnham area

Andrew, you are of course welcome to view mine and take any photos that would help you. Getting the tension around the rear without kinking the corner windows would be an issue. I say that as even Polyfacto didn’t get mine perfect. It’s also important to get the hood down into the two valleys to try...

Re: Oldencars

I don’t think there would be a queue to allow others to drive their cherished cars.
It will be interesting to see if it develops. I know there are similar systems to loan cars to film sets but having seen how some classics have been driven it won’t be mine.

Re: Racing Fuel Tank - Design Required

Colin, sorry to hear of your marathon to get home. As you lost the fan belt could that mean it was loose and therefore the alternator wasn’t producing sufficient charge. Loosing power from the alternator would then affect the electrics. My check on how tight the fan belt should be without over tight...

Re: Capillary Oil Temperature Gauge

I didn’t realise that some of the bolts needed to be sealed. I might try that first before changing to gaskets.
