  2. Hi I removed my tank by pulling both seat as far forward as possible and removing the panel behind. The tank came through quite easily. Its the sierra injection model as a new one was easily sourced on ebay. My kits a 2B.

  4. Another good day. Just about 45 min drive for me, first outing of the year for my padded jacket. We all went a bit early in case there was a queue and the small car park was full. Needn't have worried, only one other car beside us Had an extremely good (and free) tour of the RAF Digby museum. It actually lasted for 2:30hrs. The station was one of the sector HQ for 12 Group during World War II (The South of England was 11 Group so they got most of tthe action during the Battle of Britain) so we got to see the actual operations room where it was all controlled. Even though I spent 37 years in the RAF I still found it very informative and interesting. Highly recommended. That probably knocks it on the head for September, so our next meet will be the Corby Glen Sheep Fair on 9th October (https://www.sheepfair.co.uk/). See you there

  5. Quite likely the issue then. Modern engines have so called ‘smart alternators’ where the charging can be controlled by the engine’s ECU via a single feed wire to the alternator (all part of a CO2 reduction effort so the alternator does most of its work when the car is decelerating). I don’t know much about the Ford engines but on an MX5 engine the alternator was ‘smart’ from about year 2000.

  6. All are welcome at a Southwest area meet on Saturday 24 September 2022. Location; the Cat & Fiddle in Clyst St Mary which is situated on the A3052 east of Exeter (EX5 1DP). From 12:00 and if there is interest, and the weather is kind, an afternoon run into Sidmouth may be on the cards. All are welcome in car or tin-top. Robbie

  7. You need to make sure which alternator diagram is correct. The 6mm should be ring terminal to battery, it may need to bigger wire depending on alternator output. IG should connect to a switched live. L wire to warning lamp and other side of lamp to IG. S depends on alternator but would be 2mm to battery. If you have a small Denso type alternator (40amp) it may not give enough juice if you're fuel injected.

  8. If you have repaced the ignition warning bulb with an LED bulb, then that might also prevent the alternator charging, can be seen because the LED appears to be constantly turned on when the engine is revving.

  9. I’m the absence of the EOSB we have been invited to Craig Cundy Farm in Huntingdon for our annual event for 2023 Cars on The Farm. The date of the event is 25th -27th August 2023. We have posted this early so everyone can put the dates in their calendar. The event allows people to camp on the farm from Thursday 24th through to Monday 28th should they wish. There will be a charge for people staying over, day visitor entry will be free. A bouncy castle will be provided, and toilets will be provided. We will also look at Clay Pigeon shooting and the speed bingo is always a good laugh. A BBQ will be provided on Saturday evening. The barn will be available to use which can accommodate 100 people which hopefully we can arrange a disco or a band. A run out will take place on Saturday. The farm has plenty of space for camping and Caravans with easy access onto the camping area More details will follow shortly. It would be great to see faces old and new.

  14. Nice day out. An absolutely perfect day for driving, sun out, dry and just enough of a chill in the air to bring out the best in our engines. Enough cars turned up to make it interesting while still leaving room to park. We even managed 5 Robin Hoods And the cake was as good as ever.

  15. No, you need to release the distributor clamp bolt and rotate the distributor in the engine block to adjust the ignition timing. You need a timing light to set the timing to the correct figure.

  16. A nice day out and a decent run for three of us. Just over 100 mile round trip for me, which I find perfect. Airfield was a bit quieter than usual, no sign of the Spitfire we normally see. Summer has definitly gone away though, a bit of a chill in the air.

  17. The curved edge below the tape measure in the first photo matches the curve in the side panel in front of the wheel. Depending on how your side panels were fitted, you might get some small gapping here.
