Re: Fan thermo switch

Hello llessur, Cliff gave a very good description of the workings of the cooling system. My choice is to sense the top hose as this is relevant to engine temperature. The bottom hose will have differing temperatures depending on how well the radiator is working, i.e. in hot weather the bottom hose w...

Re: Mix & match carb parts?

Hello Llessur,

I don't see any problem with what you are suggesting. Some parts are more critical than otheres so swapping pistons between different dash pots is generally accepted as not being a good idea for instance but complete assemblies should not be a problem.

Re: Brake Pedal very hard

Hello John,

there are companies who can restore or recondition brake components including servos. Could it be a simple as a vacuum leak feeding teh servo or that the non return valve is missing?

Re: Mk 2 Brake master cylinder.

Hello all,

a quick speell on Google seems to indicate a 3/4" bore for the Vauxhall fitment? The flange orientation is probably Lockheed's way of ensuring that visually similar but different bore sizes do not get fitted by accident?

Thanks again,

Iain

Re: Mk 2 Brake master cylinder.

Hello Dave, thanks for the reply, but my problem is the reservoir is leaking at the base seam and proving problematical to solder, presumably due to the brake fluid being difficult to clean effectively. If I can't find one I'll have another go or as a last resort make a new reservoir. Until I starte...
