Re: Intermittent revs drop and stall.

Many thanks for all your inputs chaps, much appreciated. It’s given me a few things to go at. Now the only other thing I could do with help with is a kick up the exhaust to get me out of the house and into the garage on a damp grey Saturday! I might just need another large strong tea to contemplate ...

Re: Intermittent revs drop and stall.

Many thanks for your inputs chaps, I’ll take a look.

I’m just surprised that it seems to have suddenly started happening when, separate to this, it’s ran beautifully since it was set up on a rolling road in July last year. Cooler air maybe?

Re: Intermittent revs drop and stall.

Hi Christopher. I hear what youre saying, it was very warm but not fully hot. I then took it for a spin c10 miles and it stalled a couple of times when coming to a halt with no accelerator. It will restart perfectly and tick over smoothly at about 700 rpm but it’s definitely a new phenomenon.

Intermittent revs drop and stall.

Hello all. I wonder if anyone could suggest any tips for an unusual intermittent stalling issue? I started the car this afternoon and let it warm up nicely. On occasions when I’ve blipped the throttle and take my foot off the accelerator the revs drop right off and it stalls. It will then start with...

Re: Petrol smell

Hi Pete. My two sources of the smell of petrol were weeping banjos on the carbs and a loose jubilee clip on the fuel filler, accessed through the LHS cover in the trunk. You may well have checked those but they are both sources that I think need checking periodically. Good luck. A constant smell of ...

Re: Hello from ATHENS, Greece

Hello and welcome! My first classic was also a BRG ‘66 Triumph Spitfire MkII when I was 22 in 1994! Lots of fun at an early age! I’ve since had all sorts of random cars and bikes up to finally finding our E which tops the lot! Good luck in your search. You won’t find a better forum packed with knowl...

Re: Cylinder head paint

Mines unpainted (68 S1,25). A good squirt of ACF50 also keeps it from getting furry, as with anything else that’s aluminium. :thumbsup:

Re: Using an E-Type

Hi Chris, I’m also missing the social aspect with the cars & bikes. For the sake of sanity I’ve been trying to get out as regularly as possible. Weekend trips down the Fosse for an ice cream have been very popular with all parties! Having the kids both fall asleep on a 2+2 rear seat must show how sm...

Re: A rare, period accessory!

It already made my wife giggle when I fitted it! Now if I fitted a vibrating buzzer under the seat, I’m sure she’d giggle even more! Best not go there! Not ruled it out though! :bigrin:

Re: Moving on. Bike resto

That's very tempting Paul ,they are so rare i don't know their values .It probably makes a lot more sense than an ISA at 0.05% though. I do have enough already to keep me busy on 2 wheels ,400 4, 2 jaguar hairdryers oh and a mk1 chopper. https://i.postimg.cc/j5CQNrH8/IMG-0081.jpg https://i.postimg....
