Re: 289 build

I can agree with Kev. 3/4 when it is really 1/2 etc etc. The important first step is to ensure that the arm can traverse its full movement without bottoming out. It should be adjustable for length. Mine was. Then fill the tank with known quantities of fuel ( either gallons or litres to your choice) ...

Re: help! starter motor

I have definitely had to replace my starter motor as the first one suffered from too much heat from the exhaust. I am pretty sure that did the job without the need to remove the exhaust. I do have the benefit of a pit but I seem to remember the main issue was making the terminal connections and ensu...

Re: Rear Toe for Jag IRS

I guess parallel should be OK but I have mine at 0.5mm toe in each side. Main thing is to get it equal e.g. not toe in one side and toe out the other! I ran for quite a few years without knowing. I have just checked the Jag manual and it quotes parallel +/- 1/32” which is 0.8 mm total or 0.4 per sid...

Re: Spark plugs

If it’s a contactless system surely you need a control pack to power up the sensor. Is that all part of your distributor because my Lucas system is remotely mounted on the wing away from engine vibration/ heat.

Re: Spark plugs

I have phoned Lloyd’s Specialist Developments who advise that you can either use resistance plugs or carbon ( resistance) leads or both together. They always suggest using both as a precaution. Ref the lead between distributor amplifier and the distributor it is preferable to be a shielded cable but...

Re: Spark plugs

CORRECTION of previous info posted. I have just re read the information on interference with ECU’s etc from the HT leads and discovered that the leads being used were solid copper type and not carbon fibre suppressed design? That makes more sense to me. However Lloyd’s Specialist Developments still ...

Hi Nik,
I thought that you would be able to conduct a search of the members database for reg numbers but I tried and failed this morning. Perhaps Andrew can help?

Re: Spark plugs

Whilst appreciating that we do not use an engine management system like more modern cars, I was told that not using the resistor plugs can seriously affect any control pack. As I run a distributor with a separate control pack I thought if best to comply just in case. They even suggested that the wir...
