Re: Going for twin webers

G, The carbs you are talking about are downdraft units, all the Six engines as far as I know run on sidedraft, whether injection, Strombergs, S.U.s ,HS4 or HS6.,and Webers,40,45,48 DCOE. As Michael says, it will be interesting to see how they perform.For the size and tune you are talking about, have...

Re: Rubber steering coupling - does this look right?

John/Mike, Thanks for your reply on the steering shafts. I know theses couplings are getting harder to get in a reliable form and I am just trying to see what would fit as an optional alternative.Before I went down that route,I think I would be looking to other sources ,possibly in polybushing.

Re: Rubber steering coupling - does this look right?

John, Hope you are well.You stated in this thread..whereas manual steering models had solid upper and lower UJ couplings with a longer solid shaft between them. Looking forward, would this 2 U/J system fit my car, as I'm sure that my last one of the same year had the "solid" shaft fitted.I'm sure at...

Re: Mk1 Hazard warning wiring

John , Just a point of information, if you are using automotive type 4 or 5 pin relays, Point 1....be aware that some 5 pin units are NOT N/O and N/C but in fact are N/o and N/O. just a linked internal terminal, rather like using a piggy back spade..Point 2....it would be worth your while to put you...

Re: Battery

I have three of these chargers, from Lidl, so in effect the same units! All bought at different times, all charging the Triumph, Minivan and one of the bikes with no issues at all.A definite good value for money item(s).

Re: Mk1 suspension wanted

Guys, I think I would be sorely tempted to makeup a bolted wooden structure/bed to sit the shell on. As it's a bare shell, it could be ratchet strapped onto the bed for ease. Also, pneumatic wheelbarrow style wheel assemblies are available,,,and are surprisingly cheap---see Fleabay. A bit of conduit...

Re: Mk2 power steering

Wellcome to the forum! John is on the ball with his information, but if you don't need to go down the originality route, electric power steering is a popular route with many, with the Corsa system being a favourite.An advantage of this system is that it is weight adjustable to suit your brute streng...
