Re: Spinners stuck and wheels stuck on!

Agree with Steve - you can't put a spacer between the hub and wheel as the cones will not meet properly. You will probably wreck the splines on both hubs and wheels. I suggest you take up the Zeus offer and put your existing units on eBay.

Re: Spinners stuck and wheels stuck on!

Did you get the Zeus iron calipers or the alloy ones? If the latter you would be better off putting them on eBay and buying the former.

Re: Can we go for a drive??

:yeahthat: One thing I did notice whilst walking around our local town waiting for the car is how friendly everyone is. People in their gardens, walkers (always at a safe distance) and cyclists all had big smiles and said hello or nods of acknowledgement. It seems everyone wants some form of human v...

SNGB sell them without the enamel if you want to simply polish them or seal with BBQ paint.

Re: Can we go for a drive??

Well, just returned from having the 911 MOT'd (passed) followed by a glorious drive back. Roads are reasonably empty except for the number of lycra glad cyclo's - more of them than cars. So it seems self isolation whilst pursuing your hobby is fine as long as it does not involve burning fuel. :shrug...

Re: Can we go for a drive??

Not sure why you should not as you will be socially distancing. Unfortunately the Government does not recognise 'motoring' and assumes anyone in a car is commuting. I went out for a run in our Porsche 993 yesterday and traffic levels were not much down on a normal Tuesday afternoon in the country. I...

Re: Daddy, Daddy, What did YOU do in The Covid War ?

OK, what's wrong here, before I paint it ? Are the spindle and levers correct ? Have you considered the Fiero blower modification, given where you live? If you do you will need cut some metal from the veloute. http://forum.etypeuk.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2240&hilit=fiero Add the Clayton vents and d...

Re: 123 Tune.....I am not so sure anymore 1962 3.8

Hi David, no its on non resistor set of plugs which worked fine with the original Lucas distributor. I have ordered some BPR5ES to try those. Never too happy with trial and error as I like to understand the reason for the problem, but of course with black boxes it could be anything ! thanks David T...

Re: 123 Tune.....I am not so sure anymore 1962 3.8

Are you using resistor plugs? I had a misfire with the EDIS/Megajolt and after much testing found it was down to using non resistor plugs even though I had Moroso HT leads. Try a set of BP R 5ES plugs - £1.93 each at Amazon. The non-resistor plugs causes electrical noise which interferes with electr...

Actually I only came across this thread last night and am somewhat bemused as to why 'bobsnicholson' behaved in such an extreme way with no provocation, at least as far as I can see. This is the first time in 12 years a member has behaved in this way especially as we strive to keep the place as happ...

Re: General Handling S2

I suspect the Blockley's are the problem. My OTS has Michelin XVS's and I throw it around without any worries, probably more so than I do with the "I am waiting to kill you" 911. My FHC has Dunlop Sports and it certaiunly does not inspire the confidence the OTS does. All down to tyre choice. Nothing...
