Re: Ebay: Series 2 FHC with front coil springs?

I think you'll find that dal2.0litrefrogeye has fitted some to the hill climb car that he is building. But he's probably fitted them because they suit the competitive environment that he's building his car for I guess? Darren has also fitted an alloy bonnet, so there will be a lot less weight bounci...

Re: Boot drain fitting

Hi Mark You say petrol overflow? From where? There is a vent tank tucked up inside N/S rear wing of my car that I assumed collected any fuel tank overflow or vented fumes? Perhaps this has a drain pipe on it to vent it to atmosphere through the pipe you mention? The picture shows this area of the ca...

Re: Is this from my car?

Hi Christopher Hi Mark You're absolutely right. I'd found a diagram on SNGB, but the pipe illustrated looks nothing like this item. It's only when you expand the item that all becomes clear. Having wasted some time polishing pieces of chrome that I subsequently discovered were nothing to do with my ...

Is this from my car?

My car came with boxes and boxes of bits and pieces. Many pieces I've been able to identify as belonging to my car, but some I definitely now know belong elsewhere. Can anybody tell me if this pipe belongs to my car? Perhaps part of a breather system?? Thanks in advance Andy https://s14.postimg.org/...

Re: Boot drain fitting

Hi Mark You say a drain point on the rear left? The only other drain point that I'm aware of at the rear of my car can be seen in the centre of these photos. This drain hole [ in the bottom centre of the channel around the boot lid recess where the weatherstripping sits ] drains down through a metal...

Boot drain fitting

My boot drain had been very thoughtfully blocked up by a previous owner which probably contributed to the tyrannosaurus rust attack in the vicinity. Anyway, a shiny new boot floor is now in situ, and proudly sports a Y fitting drain tube. The original fitting had I think snapped off lowish down, and...

Angoulême car rally

Have any of you been to the above, or do you intend to go this year? If you have been before, any thoughts on the event? Any tips? Things to do or to avoid? My cousin lives near Angouleme, so I have somewhere to stay fortunately. As you can see from the pics the E will be nowhere near complete, so I...

Re: Government scrappage scheme

I spotted this item in the latest newsletter of the Southern Classics club that I'm a member of. I've disseminated this through this forum and the Classic Corvette club. If any of you also belong to other forums or clubs, perhaps you'd do the same?

Government scrappage scheme

Some of you may have read the story about the Standard 10 that was part exchanged under the Ford scrappage scheme for a brand new transit van. A petition has been started "Make it illegal for Historic Vehicles to be processed through scrappage schemes." Here is the link if you feel like adding your ...

EDIS system

I like the idea of the above because of it's lack of moving parts and the fact that it seems to offer very stable idling and running. I have looked at the webcon Alpha system, but the more I look, the more I come to the conclusion that it gets away from what I like about the EDIS system. It's simpli...

Re: 1R20498 progress

Just a quick update on whats been happening. Having been soda blasted and primed, the shell has been with the body shop for a month now. The bonnet is in remarkable shape and totally free of any rot at all, and only needs minor fettling to a couple of areas that have obviously been dented during it'...

Re: Alternator refurb

3 weeks after dispatch, my alternator was finally delivered to C & V on Friday. I wonder what Interparcel are going to say when I suggest that they might like to return to cost of the postage? I'm not holding my breath.

Re: Torsion bar reaction plate

Hi Alan What I've noticed in some pictures is that the hex headed bolts are replaced with allen headed bolts. Maybe that's to overcome this issue? I live close to a nut and bolt store that would certainly stock what you need. I'll happily pick some up and send them to you. They may well be metric ra...

Re: Alternator refurb

Hi Darren Neither Interparcel or Hermes have been even remotely helpful. You just get a meaningless procession of apologies and platitudes. In particular, I ask the simplest of questions, and get no reply. For instance, the last entry in the tracking thread was that it had been loaded on to a van. W...

Re: Alternator refurb

Having decided on Classic & Vintage, I dispatched my alternator to them using Interparcel/Hermes, but all these incompetents have managed to do is to loose my parcel. So I guess I'm now faced with trying to source a replacement LRA 119, or go for an upgrade with an internal regulator? If anybody has...

New SNGB website bugs

The new SNGB website went live today. I managed to use it briefly earlier, but it now appears to have quit??
The diagrams looked to me to be much clearer, and your shopping basket now shows pictures of the items that you have added. Hopefully the bugs will be ironed out soon?

Re: Alternator refurb

Thanks for all of your input boys. I went with Classic & Vintage. They have an identical refurbished unit ready to go on an exchange basis, so I've sent mine off. I did think to ask them to refurbish mine and send it back, but this seemed a bit pointless as I have no idea if mine is the unit origina...
