Re: Halibrand Tool

I normally use a copper mallet. Heavy one to get them off and a lighter weight one to tighten up to avoid over tightening. Having just taken up the slack on the spinner it’s important that the wheel is touching the ground when you tighten properly to avoid the full the force going into the wheel bea...

Re: Statutory plate

I think I must have benefitted from the newness of SVA testing as I didn’t do any particular checking or research into the finer points. I assumed that Gerry had designed the car correctly for passing the SVA e.g. seat belt supports etc. Dashboard protrusions didn’t apply but I did know that I had t...

Re: Statutory plate

Clive, did those axle design weights come from Gerry?
You might have a Jag rear suspension but not Jaguar rated springs.
Just hunted out my MAC cert from the SVA and it shows 550/ 650 kgs but then as advised it was the tester that conjured up the weights needed to get my SVA.

Re: Statutory plate

When I had my SVA the tester advised me that I had made a mistake because I hadn’t added in 75kgs each for driver and passenger.
I obtained my axle weights by using a local weighbridge.

Re: Pair of P700 ‘tripod’ headlamps

Martin,
Out of interest whose make of headlight have you changed to.
I am just about to refit my P700’s as the Lucas PL700’s didn’t seem to be particularly good.
I’m hoping that some LED bulbs will improve the beam.

Re: Edelbrock Performer erratic water temperature

Yes it always helps to have a bleed point at any potential high point. E.g the heater hose circuit.

Re: Edelbrock Performer erratic water temperature

Hi Stuart. An interesting and thorough investigation making a good read albeit centered around a standard MGB V8 rather than a Cobra installation. Certainly thought provoking. I was surprised at the revelation of the position of the heater return pipe being close to the by-pass port on the pump havi...

Re: Welsh tour for 2020 - 4th to 7th Sept

Just a quick reminder about the 2020 tour in Wales. When the farm exhibits at the up and coming NEC Classic we may lose any spare rooms, so if you are interested I suggest you contact the farm asap.
It would be nice to have a few more members take part.

Hi Jonny,
I get an add files box after clicking on attachments.
It should be that you then click on the desired image in you photo album file.
