  1. Today
  2. Brilliant, I'm in Letchworth so just up the road from you.
  3. I’ll dig it out first and send you a pm. Where abouts are you?
  4. Sold to the badger in the tree! How shall we do this? Paypal? If on the outside chance you are anywhere on the A1M corridor in the near future might be able to meet up....
  5. Yes it will definitely fit a 1600 pinto. I'll check the size/weight and look at postage cost. Just checked, it's the best part of 3kg, so £10 should cover postage costs.
  6. Hi Peter. I'm looking for a manifold too - might have found one I think. How much were you after for the carb?
  7. Hello Trev, might be jsut what I'm looking for. Will this fit a 1600 Pinto? Do you have any idea about the postage? Am in North Herts
  8. Nice clean Pinto inlet manifold suitable for Weber 38 or 32/36 downdraught carbs (and possibly other Weber dual barrel downdraught design ). Coventry, collection preferred (West Mids area club meet is good) but can post if necessary at cost (uk only ). £25
  9. Kevin, interesting thanks, I'll try and find a regulator with a filter I guess, mounting that near the carbs might be good to kill two birds with one stone. Maybe it's worth replacing the top cover gasket too as I see it's only $5.
  10. Good work. I often solve problems by just walking away when stumped and having a good think about it before returning. Not always though! The Weber's need a low pressure but high flow rate, I think its only 2.5 to 3psi so it might be worth slotting a regulator into the system as close to the carbs as possible. Too much pressure and they will leak from every gasket!

  12. Think I’ve got a dgav 32/36? But will it fit your manifold, I think the mounting ctrs are slightly different. Can you measure yours?

    Or just ignore the vac advance. It’s there to improve mpg and very low speed running. I doubt if in practice you would notice any difference. I assume you haven’t got a brake servo?
  14. I have been having a lot a trouble with over heating. it has a new coolant pump and the pipe arrangement has a couple of extra bleeds to release the air pockets. with the fan on all time the engine temp will rise to 100 within 5 miles of driving. you can see the temp vary as the thermostat opens and the the temp drops 4 or 5 degrees but if you if you accelerate hard the temp will go to 108 and the slowly drop back down to about 103 and stay there. I have put some remote temp probes on the rad flow and return and it appears that the rad is just not able to cool the water. obviously the non turbo guys don't seem to have an issue with the rad size and its slope. is this just a problem with turbo models as they produce a lot more heat? Has any of the other turbo guys got this problem or have found a solution? The other thing is that i have piped the setup wrong and it is over cooling the turbo. if someone with a turbo version had a schematic of how they had theirs plumbed in would be very helpful Thanks Steve
  15. Next Wednesday (25th) , 7PM onwards, Malt Shovel Pub, Coventry Road, Nr Stonebridge, Coventry, CV7 7HL Entrance to the pub car park is off the A452 Chester Road heading North 50 yards from the island. See you there.
  16. Yay it lives again. Summary after the last couple of weekends. Weekend 1: compression test - aborted. Zetec needs an adapter in order to get the cheaper testers deep in the engine. Note for others, example adapter https://www.lawson-his.co.uk/sealey-vs200-a-long-reach-compression-tester-adaptor-zetec poked around a lot more. sparkplugs were getting wet and some fuel visible in the carbs, less so on 3/4 but still fuel getting there. some garbage in the carb fuel filters, but nothing too much? anyway, cleaned it out Weekend 2: compression test, all looks good. Dry, the 4 cylinders were 124, 125, 124, 124. Didn't bother with a wet test as this was normal AFAICT. took the carbs apart and cleaned out everything I could using carb cleaner spray, and without disassembling anything that would result in me needing to re-tune them. After cleaning and re-assembly I manually put a few tablespoons of fuel in the reservoir in the carbs under the floats - and SHE STARTED decided to therefor look a lot more into the fuel system. worked our how many L/min it should be for my fuel pump (3.5psi), disconnected the carb end and turned it on to see the flow rate. Hmm, about 20% what it should be and kind of irregular. took the fuel pump off, not much to look at (it was a https://www.osiaspart.com/OSIAS-inline-diesel-fuel-pump) but evidently it wasn't working well. Checked the lines were otherwise clear Weekend 3: replaced the fuel pump with a new one of the same pressure (this model but from ebay https://www.racetep.com/manufacturer/carbs-and-injection/weber/electric-fuel-pumps/lower-cost-singe-carb-pump.html), and also replaced the fuel hose for higher quality stuff for the new gas. New fuel pump has a fuel filter (the last setup didnt have one...). Upon starting the new fuel pump I noticed now the fuel union was leaking fuel with the new pump, so much so I didnt want to catch fire, aborted and went home. Weekend 4: Installed the new seals I ordered https://classiccarbs.co.uk/product/weber-dcoedcospdcom-twin-carbs-fuel-union-inner-fibre-seal STARTED FIRST TIME So, TLDR; fuel pump blocked/failed/died and then a lot of tail chasing as I worked out what was going on. Probbably for the best as at least the new everything will handle E gas better.

    if your dizzy has vac advance then yes you will need a vac take off on the manifold to get a stable vac for the advance you will need a take off from all four inlets going to a balance bar and then on to the dizzy a lot of fafing around easier to get a dizzy with no vac advance
  19. Hi Allan, I hope that you enjoy your holidays and that the weather is kind to you,are you taking the Kit? I will give Harrry a ring to see if he is going to look out and if any other Members are thinking of going can they post a note on here to let us know how many might turn up. Have a good time and see at the next meet. Allan.

  21. The dash is from Kit Spares requires a little chopping to get it in..... Below I used mdf and covered it.

    Thanks Trator! yes disconnected, but didn't block the pipe, will have another look in over teh weekend

    32/36 refere to the choke diamters. The primary is 32mm for good MPG at part throttle The secondary is 36mm for when you unleash the horses. I have this carb on a 2l pinto and recently got 38MPG on a 220 mile round trip on mainly secondary roads.
  26. That would be me I started off just bunging it up with a tea towel, but eventually graduated to rubber bung off EBay (Item 272283417049) (see below). But it was mainly to pass the emissions test, I don't think it affects the noise level. For some reason I missed you when I was collating Superspec owners (Up to 40 now). I'll PM you with the details. Al

    Thanks Bob! Yup, got the haynes and identified the grooves and filled them with tipex to highlight them. What does the numbers 32/36 refer to?
