Re: RECENT DIFFICULTIES LOGGING ON TO THE FORUM

Hi Bill,

That's great and thanks for letting me know. I sorted your password last month but then we had an issue with just getting to the forum. That also now seems to be sorted.

Good to see you back on here again!

Cheers,
Mike.

Re: Setting carbs and timing - what sequence to follow?

First of all I set the timing to the book spec - so it will run! Then disconnect the link between the carbs so you can set each throttle individually. This allows the setting of each carb for idle speed (not mixture!). I have an old Gunson's balance thingy, but you can do it with a bit of tube (as A...

Re: RECENT DIFFICULTIES LOGGING ON TO THE FORUM

Certainly not John! I first noticed the problem over the weekend (when prompted by Sharon) I then had an email from Andy saying they were working on it. Obviously successfully!

Cheers,
Mike.

Re: RECENT DIFFICULTIES LOGGING ON TO THE FORUM

I've been locked out too - and I'm the forum Administrator! I've also found my old book mark stopped working (that is direct to the forum) but if you go to the Register home page, forum and then click the 'out of the Frame 'bit (just as johnnydog says), that works. Then you can save that page as a b...

Re: Hello from Northern Ireland!

A very fine looking car. At shows (when we've been showing a big saloon) I've got used to people saying 'my Dad had one of these' and also 'my Grandad had one of these'. This is the first time I've heard 'my Great-Grandad had one of these'! I must be getting old... Good luck with the car. It'll be a...

Re: Stag propshaft

Shorter. They also use a bigger UJ and hence drive flange.

Re: Purging the U.J.s...

I'd leave it and see how it is when the car is back on the road. After all, it's a relatively easy fix! There are 2 failure modes in a UJ (that I know of). It goes loose It goes tight! The former is relatively easy to detect but you can't check for the latter without removing the prop. In my experie...

Re: Compression Testing - Hot or Cold?

As all 4 cylinders gave much the same reading, I think that is probably more important than an absolute value. Like johnnydog, I've done compression readings both hot and cold - I don't see what it should make much difference - assuming that rings and valves are sealing OK. In a way, it's a shame th...
