    With a drum does it make sense to try and get these on shoes?


  • Jeremy Tickle21 November 2014

    Only have a standard one of my 1275 but there have been many horror pictures on here of roll bar mountings being 'liberated' from the chassis, so yes it is a good idea to strengthen especially if you're increasing the size of the bar.
    Have a look here for several bits and pieces

    Indentations invariably mean a soft head. It can be reclaimed by peining the fire ring area to compact the head, it brings it up quite well if properly done.

  • mark 1500 on the road Preston Lancs21 November 2014

    Just finished fitting fast road polly bushes on my 1500 front and rear so yet to see how it improves handling , considering fitting roll bar and maybe lowering by 1 front and back at a later date, so is it worth strengthening the roll bar mounting while I have the engine out ,and will drilling through the chassis rail and bolting through a steel plate on top of rail to sandwich rail between...

    Mintex M1144 is the pad material, I got mine from Bob Wests here in the UK.
    He has them specially made in batches and so they are not always in stock as far as I know.
    Probably he is the most likely source for you.

    As I mentioned before I thought 3 bearing engine were impossible, as many others do, but I got mine last year as a non runner from Andy Jennings for 200 plus 50 carraige, and he is still offering more on his web site so it is an option. Clearly I then paid for a full rebuild, incidentally by Cameron Gilmore (Doug, Cameron is in Errol just around the corner from Dundee). Yes I am still on standa...

    Like others I object to paying a fortune for simple screws and other fasteners. I made the medallion spring washers out of pieces of plastic salvaged from the lid of bucket. I softened them with my hot air paint stripper before pushing the split pin through the medallion boss and this has provided a nice firm fixing with no chance of corrosion. I have used recycled plastic for all manner of washer...

    There are sets of halogen lights directly interchangeable with the originals.
    The pilot light is there for models whoch didn't have a separate sidelamp. The 65 model did have a separate sidelamp so you don't need a pilot light.

  • vignes pillai21 November 2014

    sorry , i forgot to ask , which headlamp is recommended, and do i get it with the pilot or no pilot


    My sprite is a 1964 British racing green mk3 sprite with a 1275 engine and gearbox, the car has a single HIF carburettor and a brake servo fitted.

    - New reconditioned 1275 gearbox
    - New 3 piece Borg and Beck 3 piece clutch kit, the carbon bearing was replaced with a roller release bearing from Pet...


    I recently bought my wife a nice silver TF soft top, unfortunatly she had a slight bump and decided that she didnt want it any more.
    So I have silver 2005 TF with only 30k miles that has easy repairable damage to the drivers side front wing, This would be a cheap nice winter project for somebody that appreciates the car.
    Photos can be sent on request.

    This dark blue, black interior car is a reliable daily driver. It has the usual dings in the paint from regular use but I have no hesitation taking this car on a long drive anywhere. It has been well-cared for and garage-kept. It would be a good candidate for restoration of continuing it's run and a daily-use car. The car is in Idaho, two-hours east of Boise. It's priced reasonably at $4500.
