Re: E Type equals what other classic

How about a real Mini?
I love driving mine in town.
The only problem is: The lady loves it too.

Re: distributor

+ another one for the 123. I installed mine more than 30.000 km ago and it was perfect until about 25.000km. Then it needed a new cap and rotor and everything was fine again.

Re: Anyone used Nankang Retro RC-001 tyres?

I'd love to now how the Nankangs are doing under hard breaking or cornering in the wet compared to Michelins or Vreds. Because these are the moments a cheap tire can become pretty expensive. If they are roughly as good, I can save the money for the Michelins or Vreds and invest it in some goodies fo...

Re: DAB radio for 1974 E type.

Just installed one of these FM/DAB - splitters and found it working fine.
FM-Reception was as good as before and DAB+ worked as it shall.
Thumb up from me.

Re: Engine cut out - advice please

I faced similar symptoms. They were gone after I fitted a new ignition switch.
Good luck tracing the fault.

Re: Bumper fixing internal - external stainless - chrome

Hi Chris, some years ago I got a set of stainless steel bumpers from Group Harrington. I'm very happy with it. The fit was very good and the looks even more so. But you need to know that the shine of the VA is brownish while chrome shines blueish. You need to have the right light to see the differen...

Re: Mangoletsi wire throttle upgrade

I Have the same problem and traced it down to something being "sticky" in the pedal box. So I added two springs at the pedal box pulling the lever back. I can live the higher force necessary to push "the pedal to metal" and it works much better now, but still sticks sometimes when car is driven hot....

Re: New SNGB website bugs

@Carsten: As long as SNG's sales department has people like Pete Thomas, who did help me so super friendly, quick and with such a profound competence, when I stranded with a broken clutch slave cylinder far from home in Saumur, France this September, SNG won't go bust over an inoperable home page.

Re: Different Diffs

@Hugo:
Jacking up one wheel is not the best option if you have a LSD.
I doubt you can turn manually the input shaft of a LSD if one of the halfshafts is not turning.

Re: Series 1 PL 700 Headlamps

I'd like to buy a pair of the PL 700 repros made for the use of H4 bulbs.
But up to now I never found them cars to be driven on the right side of the road.
It'd be great, if someone could give me a hint, where to buy it.
Thank you

Re: Different Diffs

Just count how often you have to turn the propshaft - flange to get the halfshaft flanges doing one (or ten) full turns. If it is hardly more than 3 rounds, it's a 3.06 or 3.07 : 1, id it's a little less than 3 turns it's a 2.87 : 1 and so on.
Happy turning
