What we are particularly looking for is somebody who can take some of the troublesome electrical products and design a way for them to work better than they do currently.
That’d be anything with a Lucas label on it? :lol:

Actually, it’s great to hear you’re doing this, Julian

Re: Loose wheel???

David, in post 40 you say Orson got the S2 spinners correct, yet I experienced the problem of them not seeming to go tight enough, changed to a re-chromed set of OE S2 spinners and problem solved :shrug:

Re: oscillating idle and lack of power

Peter, a general rule is to use engine oil in the carbs.
Let's hope this change will do what you need and get a nice, smooth engine

Re: Gearbox oil check and change

Be aware that some later S2 gearboxes have the filler on the right but without a hole on the transmission tunnel to get easy access.
Andrew has very good points about how to go about the task

Re: Heater hose C18987, diameter fitting adapter C17421

Rory, FWIW my S2 has a new set of silicone hoses from Fosseway and that hose goes from smaller to larger diameter to accommodate what you’ve found. I was advised to get these by a respected person on here as they fit and work well

Re: oscillating idle and lack of power

Peter, just a reminder that you should aim for 700 rpm idle on your 4.2 engine not 500. To help eliminate chatter from the constant mesh gears in the all synchro gearbox.

Good luck getting it all smooth :salute:
