Re: Malpassi fuel pressure regulator

Hi Tim, I have a gauge fitted to mine and the pressure never fluctuates. The pressure drop you experience has to be caused by the pump but may not necessarily be a fault. I run an in-tank pump from SNG and that runs constantly with the ignition on. Your SU may cut in and out depending on load. Cheers.

Re: A RHD in Continental Europe

Hi Lual, Great to have you on the forum! Why don’t you consider converting to LHD? It is relatively simple and the only major component you need is the steering rack. These are readily available second hand as many UK owners convert to RHD (as I did). You will also have the benefit of selling all th...

Re: Steering rack bellows replacement

Hi Mark, When you remove and refit track rod ends, no re-alignment is required as nothing will have changed to the geometry. Track rods can only go back in exactly the same place as there were when they were removed. However, you need to remove the track rods from the steering arm to fit the bellows...

Re: Ride Height

Hi James,

Wow, that’s a big drop! Your theory is sound though, it will lower the ride height. As long as the spring is clear of the lower swing arm, it should be fine.

Re: Choke Light Issue

Hi there, It won’t be the bulb (faulty bulbs stay off , not on). It will be the switch which is turned off only once the lever is fully down as it is attached to the switch bracket. Your problem will probably be the way the cable is attached at the carbs. Specifically, the cable is terminated under ...

Hi Paul, When I fitted mine, I just cut the tube short of the light fitting but left the matterial in place (just pulled back the material to allow the tube to be cut). I then simply stuck the material in around the light fitting arpeture. I left one side of the material longer so when both halves m...

Could be many things, but I’ve seen this happen when the mixture is wrong. Could be running too lean.

Re: E type series 2 speedo refurb

Hi There, That is one of the two clamps holding the speedo to the back of the dash panel. There’s one on each side of the dial. If you want to clean the unit properly, you will need to remove the glass. The glass can be removed once you pry open the tabs that hold the bezel on. Whatever you do, don’...

Re: original profile interior

Hi Charles, If those pictures are your actual car, then they look quite usable. They are quite easy to remove once the whole trim piece has been removed - drill out the rivets locating them behind the trim and very carefully lever them off. I did this on mine and they cleaned up like new and where p...
