Re: MK1 auto pedal box

Assuming the cross shaft is not worn (which I think is unlikely) then yes. Once the pedal box is out they are very simple to dismantle with circlips at either end of the shaft. Whilst you are doing the job it would be a good time to check that the large return spring between the brake pedal and the ...

Re: MK1 auto pedal box

I believe auto pedal boxes for the Mk1 and Mk2 are the same but I think there was a difference between manual Mk1 and Mk2, where in the Mk2, the clutch pedal had a bend in it and the operation of the master cylinder pushrod was from a linked bracket rather than directly from the pedal itself. Howeve...

Re: Petrol Leak - Siphoning

Hi Chris, I assume you have Strombergs? No, I have twin SU HS6s. Before fitting, the same problem was occurring, with fuel siphoning straight out of the end of the steel fuel pipe. I take your point about the Stroms float chamber valves, that’s the same on the SUs and I will investigate both the ne...

Re: Petrol Leak - Siphoning

Hi Chris, I assume you have Strombergs? I think you will find the problem will be the float valves (also called needle valves) which determine the fuel level. They need to be set correctly so that they shut completely when the fuel reaches the determined level in the float. If the float chamber gets...

During its period of storage, the carbs were bunged up with a tar like substan...

Great weather Saturday - warm and dry for the majority of the day, although a little cooler and showery on the Sunday. Good autojumble too! (well it always is when you find some good NOS Mk1 b...
