    Hi. I have a 1970 Midget with fitted roll bar ( and MX5 seats). The seats you have purchased with the adjustable headrests will be ok for clearance with the fitted roll bar.
    Ref the spikes - I fitted a drilled rubber block slightly longer than the spike, so the spike does not touch the floor. This maintains the seat angle. The rear runners bends downwards, and I fitted a rubber strip to it, aga...

    Sorry Mark,

    Didn't mean to hi-jack your post.

    MikeH and I differ on the route we took, I basically stripped an SD1 Vitesse, and took :-

    4 pot front calipers ( combined with Peugeot 405 gti vented disks they give good stopping power)

    5 speed box (some mods needed to transmission tunel, but the grear lever comes out in approximately the same place )

    engine (3.5 but...

    Ok guys
    I have a fella wanting an alloy sump for his racer
    Why ?--I don't know
    Has anyone here used one-

    Which one has the best baffles
    1----Moss motors-
    2----Cambridge motorsport

    Are there any others

    The box style baffle in the Moss sump worries me a bit
    Havn't had much luck with that style of baffle
    Can't find a pic of the baffles in the Cambridge one

    The OP seems to have disappeared, after Prop's warm welcome.

    Hi Paul.

    Started the car and ran the adjustment screw as rich as I could. This did allow me to get it to run with the throttle lifted, but it is running very bad. Here is a video of the car running with the jet set rich and a picture of the plugs after this run

    Still sounds like it is starving for fuel.

    The plugs are black. That...

    Not sure, Chris. Here's what George said, "My TD sold at Barons Auction in the UK for 28050 pounds. To see the car after restoration go to bridgeclassiccars.uk think he lost a bit or broke evan. Bud

  • Bud Krueger 27 February 2017

    Tom, I wasn't talking about the 'restoration' aspect (I hate black upholstery). I just meant the aesthetic bit to grab some $35,000US. At least it had a Mickey Mouse wingnut. Bud

    Peter,
    Yes, an "L" shaped piece of flat stock, bent at 90' with a 5/16" hole drilled in a hole end. I brazed a 5/16" BSF nut on one end. Fully revrsable with a 5/16 BSF wrench in just a few minutes.
    Be well,
    David

  • t lange27 February 2017

    Bud - are you seriously suggesting that the "beautiful" Mark II you reference is a car worth imitating when doing a restoration? I stopped counting the things wrong when I reached 25.

    Some of these errors are perhaps the auction house's mistakes, but surely much of the information came from the owner? For instance, there were actually 16 RHD Mark II cars built in 1951, not 11. Second, I ...
