Re: Malpassi fuel pressure regulator

I'm getting more confused :shrug: . Is fitting a Filter King to a car with the standard SU pump worth doing or not? Previous posts, including from illustrious people, seem to recommend them, but is that only if you've got a none standard pump and/or none standard air filter and carb needles? :helpsi...

Re: Interesting Old Motorsport Article

A quote from that article:
"The A 4(M) is a 2-lane motorway, crowded at 10 a.m. with trucks, so that our speed fell repeatedly from 130 m.p.h. to 40 m.p.h."
Angus also often complains of other drivers getting in his way to reduce his normal cruise of 130mph :bigrin:

John, this forum has no direct affiliation with the E Type Club, surely if you are a member of that Club then they will provide you with the discount code?

Re: Gearbox Oil Change

I have to say, I've never encountered a Gearbox for an S2 with the filler plug on the RH Side and I handle a lot of Gearboxes. Bill Bill, my S2 built August 69 has the filler on the RHS. Why they changed who knows and there's no access plate on the RHS of the transmission tunnel so filling is from ...

I bought a couple of original ones at Spares day so have one spare if it's any use. Not as nice and shiny as your lovely new one but at least the handle doesn't come off in your hand! :lol:

Do you mean Avatar or user name? I think user names can not be changed, you'd have to become another user, I believe. Heuer, is that correct?

Re: Straightening Cam Cover After Welding

Geoff

That sounds very impressive work. Wellseal smeared on the gasket to help get a good seal, plus I've used "Dowty washers" on the bolts to hold the covers down. They may not be copper for the purists, but they certainly stopped any weeping from there.

Re: Accelerator pedal - play in shaft

Ash, subjectively about 0.5 mm there on mine, could you use a shim washer? Does your pedal seem particularly loose? Mine has quite a bit of lateral slop but never noticed that before. Now you'll have me questioning it!! :bigrin:
