    Interesting observations Tom, on the 40 year old rebuilds. Thanks for sharing. I have seen some pretty hard grease....but that was really old stuff. I need to realize that the '70s were long ago too!

    Perfect, it looks just like my other hinge!
    please email me.

    My engine has a Derrington crossflow head, a Piper 285 camshaft, a recurved distributor, dual Weber DCOE 45s, and a Maniflow exhaust system, so I feel that such real-world performance with your specification is indeed pathetic. Allowing for the fact that your Dynometer numbers are incorrectly calculated (a four-speed transmission will absorb about 22 HP, making for 86HP at the flywheel i...

    My question about that particular port on top of the supercharger was answered by Terry above and you acknowledge that answer. It is not a larger volume source of vacuum as I had hoped.
    Although I do not believe that I have resolve my issue yet I will keep you all posted on my progress so far. My goal is to keep the crankcase under vacuum instead of positive pressure in the hope...

    I plan to do some work on my front suspension over the winter and whilst I'm doing this, I intend to remove both the front valence and the front chassis extension as they both need repainting. Plus my front oil cooler vent needs to be made a little wider.

    At the same time I can have a look at ways of beefing up the dumb irons to see if I can fit a towing eye to one or both sides.

    This is a hinge from MY TF. Rusty, but it still works. Yours if you want it.

    it needs to earth via the retaining ring and at least one of the 6 tank mounting studs, so check you have a clean shiny metal path, not insulated with muck / dirt / grease / underseal !

    My page at explains the opening ramps and how clearances relate to them.

    Ramps vary considerably beteen profiles, for example the one I am using at present has a ramp extending to around 20 thou valve clearance, whereas the fast road cam I use has the ramp finishing at 11-12 thou valve clearance.

    If you don't know yo...

    Mike ..thanks for info....Away in Europe, mainly Italy, until mid august .When I get back to the car I will make up a wooden template and plan to have the unit totally removable (in 3 pieces) and to have all the joints as bolted/pinned so loads are simply applied. The 3 pieces will be the two tie rods with flats at each end and a threaded boss with two welded on ears ( for connecting to the ti...

    I think this is an evergreen problem....however....Dropped the tank a few weeks ago and I pulled the sender from within - just to check it was OK. Since then, Fuel gauge has ceased to work. If it ain't broke..... I assume I have disturbed something - connections outside the tank look fine, but clearly I cannot see the connection atop the sender.

    Any clues as to the usual suspects ref sender...
