Re: Which distributor to use?

Can you build something up from spares to give you the right spec if you can't find the right one ? I've had engines set up on a rolling road so they give the best power. Once you know the maximum advance needed it's just a case of setting the distributor up so you have a suitable idle setting. Soun...

Re: Which distributor to use?

Not sure if it helps much but I experimented with a couple of different distributors on my car and noticed a difference. Mine has an S enigne with a slightly better cam. The S distributor gave better acceleration but caused a lot of popping and banging on overrun. I fitted a PI distributor in the en...

Re: Mk2 Front Wings.

I found this picture a while ago and thought I would add it to show what could have been. When I paid up for my wings I was told they would be pressed ones and expected something like this. They look like Earlpart ones, just like the ones a friend fitted back in the early 90's. The shape of the arch...

Re: Mk2 Front Wings.

The whole reason this has been become public is because he wouldn't reply to me privately. All I wanted to do was discuss things with him and he starts saying he won't make any more panels and wants to charge handling fees for the better panel I don't actually want to return. I know what trouble he ...

Re: Mk2 Front Wings.

Ted. My initial questions were aimed at those who have bought panels, Mk2 wings in particular. Those who do have some have offered to have a closer look at them to see what they are like compared with the ones I have. From what he has said he has sold loads of them so there should be a few people ar...

Re: Mk2 Front Wings.

Lloyd thank you for getting in contact. You have offered me a refund in the past on a couple of occasions. The reason for you doing this the first time was because you changed the specification of the wings from when I originally ordered them. The original order was for 7/8th height wings which was ...

Re: Mk2 Front Wings.

Alan. My main aim at the moment is to find out if other people have had any problems with the wings and wing repair panels they have bought. If the one I have is the only bad one I don't think it is unreasonable for the supplier to do something about it. If all of the panels are badly finished then ...

Re: Mk2 Front Wings.

It seems a real shame that nobody seems to be taking any interest in this. The more positive responses can only be a good thing for the supplier although it does mean something needs to be done about the one I have. Lots of these wings are supposed to have been sold so there must either have been a ...

Mk2 Front Wings.

Can I ask if anyone on here has bought any of the hand made 2000 Mk2 wings or repair panels ? I am trying to find out how others have got on in terms of fitting them and what pre-fitting work they have had to do. I've got problems with the ones I bought and I need to know if they are all pretty simi...
