Re: Rear light cluster

Got a nice compliment on my “Marek” LED brake lights yesterday. Led a cruise, and the guy at the back of the line said he could see my brake lights from 1/4 mile away. Bright daylight, too! The brake LEDs integrated into the reversing lenses are especially bright. Here we are stopped at a waypoint. ...

Re: Stromberg jet height

Related to this topic, can anyone confirm a source for the spring clip circled in Simons photo. I want to be able to replace the rubber o rings on the adjuster without having to buy kits from Burlen. Apologies Simon for using your photo, I hope OK. https://i.postimg.cc/W1QBzV8N/D873-ED5-A-047-B-467...

You dont need to send your carb to Joe. The adjustable jet is a screw-in replacement for the fixed jet. Swaps out and sets up in just a few hours. I can vouch for the quality and performance of the mod. Really woke up my S2. Note: I just looked and it seems Joe may be “between websites”. Joecurto.co...

Re: Boot Pops Open

Mine does that occasionally. It’s usually because the T handle on the opening cable wasn’t pushed fully into its socket from the last time I operated it. I’ve got in the habit of pushing the T-handle Firmly back in after I’ve opened the boot.

Since the alternator has a regulator built into it... can I remove the relay that mounted above the battery? Is there anything else that can be removed? Trying to clean up the engine compartment of wires not being used.

I did away with it.

A future owner may want them. Otherwise, the car will be fine without them.

I have this one on my S2. It came from the UK, from a gent on this forum - can’t recall his name, though. Has a nice LED stop light built in. I changed the mounting to connect directly to the folding top, so it would likely work on your car if you did the same. Probably from Dave Kerr. I have one o...

JUST fitted one, from SNG Barratt. Works brilliantly, I now know the real oil pressures. And it's still a "Smiths" clock, so matches the other guages perfectly. Only difference is that my original guage read to 60psi, this reads to 100.
Got a part number handy?

Re: Stromberg Temperature Compensators

I took the compensators out of the equation by placing a "blanking" gasket under them. No air flow.

Addressed my high-idle-when-hot problem to a large extent. (Rest of the problem was the sticky bushing at the firewall end of the throttle shaft.)
