Re: Cylinder head removal

Malcolm, having done this a few times I could drop round to help, let's chat next Monday JDC meeting?
Regarding Dave's point, I used a pulley attached to a strong point in the garage roof to lift the head evenly. It takes the weight while you steady the head to the correct angle.

It is so easy to do and single handed if needed: http://forum.etypeuk.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=6058&hilit=Bonnet Christopher is right about the ease of then moving the head and you'll need a couple of blocks of wood to support the head ...

Re: Help pls - Alternator voltage too high, blowing LEDs?

Jeremy, have Fosseway given you no information about the alternator? Access to a potentiometer to adjust the voltage as you would on a TR?

Re: Horn works when steering wheel is turned (very annoying)

Robert, it would help if you told us which series car you have, S2 has different horn control to S1.
Add it to your signature. Sorry can't help otherwise

Re: SNG Barratt

Julian, can I ask about the Horn Push Assembly (C16070) you sell? Unfortunately, it does not replicate the original, colour, size of Growler. Is there a reason for this, for example copyright?

Evans did a presentation recently where they said their system was the same as in Spitfire's Merlin engines as they ran on pure glycol.

I've a 2014 year Michelin 205/70 R15 with less than 2000 miles use and still in good condition. If you are buying Michelin then this could be a useful spare. One way of reducing your total expenditure :shrug:
