Re: Subject: Old glue removal

Hi John,

I have what you need. I use it for old and new neoprene glue and also for the brushes.
All the glue of the seals disapeared after 15/20mn simply by brushing.
This Diluant is not very volatile as the other and it doesn't remove the old paint.
If you have any interest, Pm me.

Re: How necessary is it to blend in the valve seats?

Oops, I understand...
If the seat isn't straight, the valve leak and this is not acceptable.
Appart a negotiation with the UK shop for the delivery, I don't see an easy solution.
Can someone else have the solution?

Re: Engine removal

Hi Pete,
If you want to moove your car after removal engine by the bottom, just retiting your ball joints, replace the dampers by a good length straight bar and refit your weels.
But trying to do the job without release tention on torsion bars without lift is really really difficult.

Re: Speeding

The debate on speed is an endless debate. If you do not drive in a country because of its radar, you will end up going round around your house but I'm sure it's not the only reason ... We are all convinced to drive much better than the guy in his car in front of us and that we can drive faster than ...

Re: Speeding

2 years ago I was “caught“ twice in 10 minutes near Lyon. 92 and 93 kph in a 90....really! I have vowed never to return to France as a result. I would feel on edge about infringing the limit all the time and therefore would be distracted while driving (especially as sometimes it’s difficult to know...

Hi Jem, I'll work on the lever. When the flap is closed, the lever seems to be too hight for a good return mouvement. Your spring seems to be above the axle instead of below Unscrew and turn anti clock wise the lever for some mm and see if it's better. After you could change the routing if you want....

Re: Underdash harduras

Thanks for this answer. It confirm what I thought but the design of your part is quit different from mine.

As the both parts are remade, Is there somebody with the original design ?

Re: Covering for instruments panel

Hi The best for doing this is the " Vinide Leather Cloth" From Martrim . Very thin, 1/32" ( 0.8mm) it's a very good product. The vinyl from BAR or other has a too thick knitted backing it creat a wave around the dash when you mount them which isn't pretty. Prefer neoprene in spray to glue it on the ...

Re: IRS - Shock Absorbers - Plan B ?

Sorry but I'm not agree to change the balance of a car, E Type or other. Mix the dampers change the way the car is going to react. Not really when you drive quitly on our small French roads that you like so much but for sure when you'll need to brake hard under a thunderstorm. That's why I don't adv...

Re: IRS - Shock Absorbers - Plan B ?

Hi Glenn I'm not agree with Marek this time. The dampers front/rear are normaly built to work together on a specific car. If you are in race it's different, you could want a specificity on your rear or on your front with different dampers but for a n " everyone car" there is not any interest. Apart ...

Great!
The most important is that you find the solution.

Re: Sheered cam cover stud

You may be able to buy one of these glass shelves thick enough to regain the flatness of the cam cover.
The glass is obligatorily flat.
GR400 / 600 or 800 grit sandpaper with oil on the glass and gently rub the cam cover over the sheets.
Thats what I did and I reduced the leaks dramatically.

Re: Torsion bar ears spline wear?

As usual, a "clonk" can come from a lot of places.
This car is a box of resonance !
Proceed by elimination to find the proper solution.

Re: Torsion bar ears spline wear?

Hi Chris, Difficult to think of wear on the splines of the torsion bar ear, it doesn't move so no friction. I also had a "clonk" in front when I arrive into a bend and for me the solution had been to change the bushs of the anti-roll bar. Simple to find if it's this. dismount a link between anti-rol...
