Re: parts questions

Not that it makes much difference unless you have a very early car please can you add the model and date to your signature. Have you got all the pieces?

Re: Oil levels

A member here had his engine ruined by filling with excess oil (quite a lot of it though). Once the level in the sump rises to be in contact with the crank the afore mentioned frothing occurs and the oil pump can't deal with it.

Re: Oil levels

Likely you have been overfilling. What you have done is the correct thing by filling with the correct quantity and then 'marking' where the oil level sits on the dip stick. Going forward top up to that mark. Unlikely any harm will have been done. Things go really badly wrong if you over fill to the ...

Re: Alternator and Pertronix ignitor help!

Hi Carlos If you changed from a dynamo to alternator I would have thought the car would also have been converted to -ve earth. If your car is still +ve earth then the Petronix will not work unless you specified the positive earth version. Can you confirm yours is +ve ground (earth) - it should say o...

Re: Quick Release Steering Wheel

My garage is alarmed and I do not remove the steering wheel when it is in there, other than for easy maintenance access. I only remove it when I leave the car away from home. So not a problem.

Re: creak in the steering column

Firstly it depends whether you have the felt bushes or the Elastollan ones. The felt reproduction ones are very thick and you need to soak them in a jar of oil for a couple of weeks before using. The Elastollan (plastic) are better but you need to modify them to fit your car. With the column on the ...

Re: Quick Release Steering Wheel

It has one large spline on both the wheel and column so you just need to pull back on the release mechanism and then offer the wheel up to mate. The key spline is at the top of the steering wheel so you know where it is and align it with the column quite easily wherever that key is. Takes a few go's...

Re: Angus’s upper wishbone inserts

Good idea - the steering rack bellows was secured to the pinion end housing by tie wire C15211 so it is in keeping. More info here: http://forum.etypeuk.com/viewtopic.php?p=65653#p65653

Was he left handed, assumed all pilots and racing drivers were left handed? Can't understand a reason for the winding crown to be on the left, except to be different? :shrug: If it was the latter, then so be it. It is an automatic movement therefore should never need winding when on your wrist. Dit...

I’m more intrigued as to why the Autavia has been replaced by a Monaco! Just a change of image or a new acquisition?? :wink: Just a change of scenery.

I will try and bring this back on topic in a roundabout way, but bear with me.

And just as you can voice match a recording to an individual you can match sound of the offending vehicle to a audio signature library that will be quickly built up. V8, straight six, boxer, Harley - potato potato potato, Vincent Black Lightning or the unique sound of the Ducati. Since 1973, new car...

Even the fuel filter bracket has a strengthening dimple. Good engineering practice?
