Re: PL 700s and LEDs

The repro PL700's have pretty dismal optics because of poor lens moulding exacerbated by using H4 bulbs rather than the Lucas 416. The PL700 was designed to work as a complete unit as it has a unique reflector supported by the tripod so substitutions will make things worse. Adding an LED into the mi...

Re: Adhesive number plate

Windscreen or window cleaner (spray type) works well because it does not leave a residue and evaporates fairly quickly. Soapy water does the opposite!

Re: Serious miss

Yes, a petrol car will run (poorly) on diesel especially if there was fuel already in the tank. Suggest you drain the tank and flush out with petrol and see how you get on.

Re: GB sticker! Discreet

I have used something similar on a few of our trips through Europe although I have to admit for most of those miles I used nothing. It is a an E-Type with the steering on the right hand side for heavens sake!

Re: Triple webers

Bear in mind that back in the day the recommended Webers for the E-Type were 40DCOE's which I belive are no longer available hence people fit the 45DCOE's which could explain some of the issues with setup.

Re: Triple webers

You would be better off with triple SU's unless you are intending to race the car. There is some good information in the Forum KB which will give you an insight into the issues you will face: Weber Set up Guide 1: https://www.dropbox.com/s/h8983mm6qxa3svy/Weber%2045DCOE.pdf?dl=1 Weber Set up Guide 2...

Range Rover for me. Two hours there and back on the A1 would be a pointless waste in the E-Type. I need wiggly roads!

The fact that 45,000 miles later everything is still working well also says nothing about pump and carb compatibility except the Malpassi is almost certainly not harmful.
Case proven then.

Re: Malpassi fuel pressure regulator

Well they used Webers for a kick-off and require a pressure of between 3 and 4 psi. Anything higher causes leaks.
