Re: Combustion Chamber Volume tolerances

I'll be interested in the answers! I know some swear by them, the respected Rob Beere uses them, my cylinder head was done by CMES who are used by Angus for all his heads I believe and they told me don't use them, Thruxton Jag say no, so I'm not sure what the answer is!

Re: Reeeeally tempted..

I get the "buy it now!" because it's the sort of impetuous thing I'd do. However, that engine has been "very well used" so I understand Andrew's reluctance to travel a couple of thousand miles on a whim.

Re: Speeding

I have to admit that not a day goes by where I do not exceed the local speed limits (outside of towns and villages) when I can make safe progress. Most rural roads around us have 50 mph limits based on no scientific rationale, just local councillors wanting to "make a difference". Most traffic on m...

Re: Advice on rattle please?

Thanks James, but it sounds almost like something touching a fan blade or the alternator blades. Not checked again yet because I woke up with a foul virus inherited from my Grandaughter. I'll take a look at the weekend provided I'm still alive. I'll try taking belts off and see which stops the noise.

Advice on rattle please?

Just bought the E back from it's annual grease-up and service. The mechanic told me he'd tightened the alternator belt. As I backed into the garage back home, a rattle started up on tickover. Seems to be coming from the front, around the fans/alternator etc. It stops when you increase the revs above...

Re: Speeding

What you need is a police car like this chasing you for speeding:

Re: Gear box oil

On that point, does redline MT90 mix with other oils? I don't mean engine oil ( :oops: ) but other gearbox oils?
Not sure what's in there at the moment so if I top up with MT90 I might be mixing

Re: Gear box oil

They didn't offer any Andrew. Just said "I always use...20/50"
As you will know, I'm not good at this sort of thing - is it duff info?

Re: Gear box oil

I've been told to use engine oil (20/50) in the gearboxx - any merit in that?

Re: Fuel

Club choice is a personal thing. I find the JEC a bit oversized and remote. I'm a member of the E type club, but spend most of my time with the JDC. There, we have great tours, European as well as UK, and good days/weekends out. Very friendly. Also, everything is done at a cost basis, rather than ma...
