Re: Safe Storage

When you find them, can you check to see if my rear brake calliper bolts are are with them? I clearly remember bagging them up, labelling them, and putting them away..........somewhere 🤔

Hey Joe,

Welcome to the forum. I’m just around the corner in Surbiton, we must meet up once this madness has calmed down.

Re: Spares day

I did attend and can vouch for the fact there were certainly no real crowds. I benefitted as I managed to find most of the parts that I went there for and am sure I wouldn’t have been quite as successful if it had been business as usual. Thoroughly enjoyed the event and fully understand the reason w...

Absolutely brilliant :yellow:

I’ve really never wanted/needed a fan override switch or a hazard switch or even an intermittent wiper switch.........but I soooooo want that switch panel :lol:

Re: Winter Care

I’ve got my E put away for the winter stored in an air-tight bag. Battery completely removed, tyres sitting on tyre-savers, fuel stabiliser added to tank, two large dehumidifier packs and a generous amount of wax over the bodywork. https://i.postimg.cc/d1shXRP5/3028-BE21-F9-A7-4-C10-BC98-E5-D41-BA45...

Re: Mangoletsi wire throttle upgrade

Hi Alex, My setup had similar symptoms as you, but maybe not as severe. Anyway, my fix was to re-align the small clamps that connect to the return springs for each carb (the ones that drop down below each carb). I loosened each one and rotated them slightly so that they apply the most force when the...

Re: Plug caps and wires

Hi Keith,

I had loads of problems with the bow-tie caps with the resistances varying wildly at different temps. After buying two sets to try and find a stable set of 6, I gave up and bought a set of NGK caps. They are fantastic - lovely tight fit and and never miss a beat!

Cheers.

But leave the plugs out to build up oil pressure - it takes ages to build pressure and your battery will be screaming at you :lol:

Hi Mark,

A while ago, I started a whole thread on this exact subject. Have a read through as it will give you a lot of info on standard and aftermarket springs:

Re: Adhesive number plate

+1 on the window cleaner - it worked perfectly on mine. There were a few tiny bubbles left that I couldn’t quite squeeze out, but a few months later they all disappeared. Leaving it in the sun really helped with removing these. I think the measurement is about 6” up from the front of the nose. This ...

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.
