  1. Presumably you just ask Jack F for a head and leave him to worry about whether it’s any good or not.
  2. Isn’t there a ’publish in demand’ service of printing now as well? No need to print thousands, you order online and it then gets printed and shipped to you. Takes a bit longer but the info is all 20 years old anyway 🤣
  3. David Vizard (a classic British tuner) would recommend Hepolite pistons over others when he couldn’t get ’trick’ Or custom parts. I would run them, noting that they were made by British, as opposed to German or even Japanese, unionised labor. As Toby says, good for 50K plus.
  4. Hey there, where about in Adelaide are you? I lived there up until about 2 years ago before moving over to NSW. Something that I don’t think the learned gentlemen above haven’t suggested is checking the electrical connections on your distributor and around your coil. Look carefully at the terminals as the copper can degrade at the crimp and make a poor connection.
  5. So, being back from outer space, I thought that I would share my mystery mishap which I am going to fix this weekend (courtesy of a new door glass from W&N). My wife came in and told me that my window was smashed and while I was surprised (and swearing under my breath) I was expecting it to be either the front or rear windscreen as we were expecting a storm with ‘potentially damaging hail’. I was literally getting up to put the car away before it started when she came in. Imagine my surprise to find it was the driver’s door glass that was smashed and absolutely no sign of what it might have been. I have heard stories of automotive glass randomly shattering but given that I think it was original to the car you would have thought that it would have worked out all of its stresses and environmental issues (we have had lots of weird weather lately).
  6. What voltage are your bikes? You will need to provide at least 5 amps at 12V to run a wide band. Probably not an issue for static set-up but might be a problem if you want to ride them and check AFR.
  7. Ha! I used to live in Ayrshire on a hill with a view to the Irish Sea. The day we went to look at the property before we bought it was glorious, with the white fluffy clouds mirrored by the white fluffy sheep on the hillsides. The day we moved in (in May) was punctuated by high winds and horizontal rain. Pretty sure it remained like that for the next 2.5 years while I lived there. Never saw the sun again, made me leave the UK (well, not quite).
  8. While this is undoubtedly true, I have not worked out if it is the steel tube rotating within the polyurethane or the polyurethane rotating within the suspension component. I ran a Land Rover 110 for years with all polyurethane suspension bushes with coil springs and complex multi link suspension to two live axles. Installed them dry and never heard a peep from them (though recognising that the car was that noisey that I probably wouldn’t have heard them anyway).
  9. You know on other cars, I have bent over backwards to avoid having to bleed brakes. So many problems on different cars I was convinced that I couldn’t do it. Following pressure bleeding on my last 3 cars ( including my 02) I am now not frightened of brakes. Best experience was replacement of the flexible hose on a Ford Sierra front caliper, completely by gravity, just let it flow, perfect brake pedal feel. Throughly recommend pressure bleeding.
  10. Looks externally regulated to me.
  11. Picture would be good. The tii alternator was externally regulated. Why do you think it is internal? If it has the same 3 pin plug on the alternator it is likely to be external. The pin s are typically marked with their function on the case. If so, does this match the marking on the old alternator? I doubt that Bosch would use the same plug but in a different configuration across different alternators.
  12. See if you can find the Blue Book sheets on syncing them. The PHH has a linkage that allows each throttle plate to be adjusted separately.
  13. I would complain to eBay. They might not do much but they *should* make the seller honour that. It’s not your fault they didn’t set a reserve. $1 starting bid looked about right too!
  14. Please no turbo flares on a roundie.
