The result was an odd gurgling noise from the engine until it fully warmed up. Sounded like a cross between se...

Re: Refubrishing series I seats

Re: High beam problem

Refit the filament H4 bulbs and see if they work as intended. Matter of problem finding step by step. If the Halogen's work OK you know it is an LED problem and wiring is OK.

Re: Refubrishing series I seats

Very difficult to do as the Vaumol leather hardens over time and will crack when you try to stretch it. Also the leather was trimmed after being attached to the frame so you have next to no way of holding/stretching it into place. Connolly have started producing Vaumol again so that is your best pat...

Re: Original Fabric Gaskets - Pedal box and Bonnet Catch

I believe the gaskets were produced by Stephens Gaskets Ltd, an associated company of Stephens Belting Co, 94 Snow Hill, Birmingham. The latter also owned Thor Hammers and as Mich says, the gaskets were made from the similar materials as the belts. Stephens Gaskets Ltd are still in operation but no ...

Yes, but if Marek has them I would prefer you buy from him. They are also more likely to be proper copies rather than reproductions!
