Re: E type full build

No it says files to big so I may have to wait till my son can show me how to reduce definition. When you click on "post image", you are given the option right at the top to re-size. It probably says initially "do not re-size". If you click on it, you can then choose a different size; I choose "19 i...

Re: Carburettor question

As well as not swapping the pots between carbs, I was always told to mark the dashpots so that you put them back with the same orientation, rather than them rotating to a new position. Don't know if that is correct, but as I say, it's what I was told.

Re: Am I overheating?

Paul, I might be wrong but I can't imagine that going from 8 btdc to 10 will make any difference. That's what I meant by something more basic. For example, as Steve said, is the thermostat allowing the water to circulate? Is anything else stopping it? I'd concentrate on basics; is water going round ...

Re: New owner

Hi Craig....when you post a reply at the bottom of the page you should see highlighted "Add image to post" click on this and away you go....Steve Craig, just note that when you click, you get an option to "re-size" the photos. I find that if I don't, I sometimes get problems. I click re-size, and t...

Re: Am I overheating?

I'm no technical Guru, but I can't help thinking there is something more basic, and maybe more simple, going on here. If the fan goes on, and is the right way round, and if the water is circulating, it should be o.k surely?

I recovered them in similar black vinyl.
Richard, this must be the left side of your car? But headlamp dip on the left? But it's a right hand drive? Or am I going old and insane?

Trying to add a pic, but postimage has suddenly stopped working for me.
The area inside the chrome metal 1/4 circle is covered in black vinyl on mine.

Re: oil pressure sender

These were measure by a garage with a professional oil guage strapped to the door, with tubes leading under the bonnet. I then had a mechanical guage (0-100)fitted and get exactly the sa...

Most people I know, including me, keep an appropriate ring spanner to hand for the regular re-tightening that seems necessary on these things.

Re: New forum member

Hi! Can't help you I'm afraid, but welcome to the forum.
I'm a bit confused though - the site suggests you've been a member for over a year? Just browsing I guess!
