Re: Failed again! Rear brake issue...

Simon, do you not have Gerry’s pedal assembly with the Tilton brake balance bar so you could adjust the bias away from the rear.

Re: 2.6 Hawk build to date thread

Ken,
I’m sure that Phil would love to have your narrative plus photos for the magazine. He is always short of articles and we can enjoy reading your diary with pictures.

Castrol Oils

Just snippet of history. In 1899 Charles C. Wakefield created a new company called C C Wakefield Company Ltd and created oils for trains and heavy industry. Early in the 1900’s he took an interest in the then new aeroplanes and automobiles. They realised that these engines needed an oil thin enough ...

Re: Raydot mirrors

I confess I do a lot of turning of the head to make sure. You need eyes in the back of your head down here in the SE. Boy racers have gone up market with M3’s and think nothing of over taking anywhere there’s a gap.

Re: MGB front brake dust covers

Hi Dave,
Having fitted larger discs ( 298 mm ) and four pot callipers I assumed that the standard MGB dust shield wouldn’t have fitted. So I have never bothered to investigate and look upon it as allowing the disc to get more air for cooling.

Re: Raydot mirrors

Looks good but I think the tea leaves around here would find the wing nuts too inviting. i Intend to swap my standard nuts for domed ones.

Re: Tripod headlamps

Simon, before try them on the road ensure they are set up correctly. I found quite a difference between the P700 copy and the PL700. 4 turns of the adjustment screw is quite a lot! There was an article in the club magazine from me a while ago with the set up dimensions. Try Autumn 2014 - No 53. Pete...

Very clever Migge , looks very professional. Bet you enjoyed the challenge of getting the wiring in through the toll bar. Frank, many decades ago I used to have that system. Utilising twin fog lights but switchable from the drivers seat to either be on for fog conditions or via a flasher unit and th...
