Re: Acoustic Cameras

Perhaps an understanding of the Zenith El Primero movement. Beating at an amazing 36,000 vph (5Hz) and capable of measuring time to a tenth of a second, the El Primero was perhaps the most impressive of the three world-first automatic chronograph movements that appeared in 1969. Heuer being one of t...

Re: Acoustic Cameras

I prefer the Autavia! But being a watch man, variety is the spice of life. I’m into IWC and Zenith. It’s to do with the quality of the movement! We could start a new thread on watches!!! Come on David.

Re: SNG Barratt User Group

I think you will find that it is for all SNGB customers. Julian said that all parts for the US were shipped out, I think, 3 times a week in large pallets. So any improvements will surely be the same across the pond. That has to be good news.

Re: Tom's Series III 2+2 Coupe Restoration

Welcome Tom! It’s great to see a younger member on this Forum, as I often wonder where the next generation of classic car owners are coming from. Values don’t help, that’s for sure. I am a V12 OTS owner, and if you need any help or advice, then please get in touch. As Geoff and Steve have said, this...

Re: Garage / workshop

I looked in one of my project files this evening, and the render you have been advised to use is the one specified for the walls and floor of a damp basement. It worked for my client, so should work for you. Let me know how you get on.

Re: SNG Barratt User Group

All I can do is add my thanks to all that has been said on the other posts. A great day, which proved extremely informative. SNGB have a unique strategy far and away better than their competitors about wanting to please their customers by improving the quality of their product. The fact that honest ...

Re: Garage / workshop

Hi Yves I can’t remember the last spec we used for a client. I always contact the Sika technical department; so do the same and ask them which will be the best product. It will be important to tell them the material you are applying the render to. I have had particular success applying a Sika produc...

Re: Garage / workshop

Excellent job, looks good. One question, what have you lined the inside of the pit with. If there is no liner or damp barrier, you will likely get damp in there. One way of resolving that is to coat the walls and floor of the pit with a Sika Render product. It is what I specify for any of my clients...

Re: Garage / workshop

Just seen your new garage, Richard. Just one but of advise; you need to insulate the walls and ceiling otherwise you will get condensation. With the construction you have in your timber framed garage it is easy. Put rock wool insulation between the framing, both on the walls and underside of the roo...

Re: ECU on EFI cars

You ignore Roger Bywaters advice at your peril, my friend. He has forgotten more about the Jaguar V12 than most of us know. I look forward to seeing how this new tech works in a V12. Good luck, I shall watch with interest.

Re: ECU on EFI cars

I think what Marek is saying makes sense. This could end up being a bit hit and miss, and you spend money on a system that clearly doesn’t work. The electronics in all of this is a bit above my pay-grade, but it is not something for the faint hearted, and certainly only for someone who is an experie...

Re: ECU on EFI cars

I can only talk about my own car which has a new 6.0 litre XJS engine. The ignition is based on the original 16CU Lucas system but has an AJ6 Engineering ECU fitted in the boot ceiling panel panel forward of the OTS boot lid. The ECU is supplied by Roger Bywater, who owns AJ6. I also have his High T...

Re: thicker Moto-Lita steering wheel

Another alternative which I am currently enjoying on my car is the Italian Nardi wheel which Eagle fit to their cars. Go to the Eagle website and see it on their special cars. About the same price as a Moto-Lita, I think.

Re: Which 185 tyre: Dunlop or Pirelli or Michelin ?

Ok Steve, point made! It’s amazing how imotive choice of tyres can be! I suppose the main point is not to buy “cheap rubbish.” Also, not to buy less than VR rating for obvious reasons. However, I’ll Butt out of the debate on choice......as was said earlier, each to his own!

Personaly i tend to ignore advice from someone pushing to sell me something.....Vredersteines are not cheap tyres...yes they are cheaper than some options but they are not poor quality from an unknown company....I think that they are even more expensive than your 225 60 VR16 Continentals....
