Re: Nice FIA for sale in Europe

The photo of the dashboard is not clear enough to show if it has the scuttle to chassis struts that an Ali car would have. Also I can’t see the top of the radiator which would be on show if it were a Kirkham Ali shell and the inner wheel arches aren’t clear enough to show it’s definitely an Ali car....

Re: 289 build

Don’t assume that the two wheel arches are exactly the same height and curvature both sides. Perhaps other 289 slab side members can advise if theirs are similar dimensions. I have checked my FIA and they are reasonably the same but I know that the headlights for example are a fair bit different in ...

Re: Well, that didn't fit

If I can stick my oar in I would suggest the ‘fussy bit’ is because they are made of angle and have the numerous lightening holes. Make them out of flat bar like all the samples that Migge put forward and they would look better and could stay in Ali colour or even blue to match the outer sections of...

Re: Front suspension geometry

If it’s a Hawk then the set up should be as per an MGB.

Re: Petersfield Meet

Thanks for your concern Roger but the dentist has confirmed the 60 mins fallow time. My new appointment is the first of their afternoon session so lunch hour conveniently provides the gap in patients.

Re: Petersfield Meet

Naturally I will now ask the question of the fallow time that they allow.
For now I have moved the appointment.
Andy see you at 11.00 on Wed.

Re: Petersfield Meet

Interesting. Already had a filling in one tooth and now going back for root canal treatment in another. Drilling that’s a definite yes. They do appear to be using the suction equipment well so spray should be kept down but then it’s my germs not theirs. Temperature taken and hands disinfected upon e...

Re: Servo for sale

As it was a Hawk then the pedal assembly balance bar should have been able to accommodate the differences.
Is the system not able to boost both circuits?

Re: Knock-on wheels: anti-sieze?

Ref wheel retention for the IVA test suggest talking to Gerry as he was prepared to loan me hexagonal nuts for the test. Otherwise I’m sure he can advise a source. Ref the lubrication I have used copper grease for the past 21 years and seems good to me. That’s liberally applied to thread, cone and i...
