    Weber Dcoe Part

    Hi thanks Bob I've tried both of those and Webcon,fast road cars, and carburettor specialist.com all with the same answer that the part is no longer available i just wondered if someone had got an old carb somewhere as I say if you don't ask but it seems as though it's going to be plan b whatever that is ! Thanks

    Rear Coilovers

    I think Bobs got it, for the bottom bracket I'm using the hole in the centre of the trailing arms as a securing point I've obviously got to move the bracket over sideways in the cup so I can get both brackets lined up better thanks everyone for your thoughts Clive.

    Rear Coilovers

    Thanks for replies when I say they don't line up they are not out by far but you can see they are not running square and the bolt is nipped in the bush which will probably lead to wear. As soon as I turn the top bracket it releases bolt and it seems to be a better position.The photos from tractor are exactly the same as my set up I just wondered if there was a problem with using the coilovers that way.

    Rear Coilovers

    Hi im in the process of converting my rear suspension over to rear coilovers, Ive purchased brackets and a set of coilovers from dave at dampertech. My question is due to the top and bottom bracket not being directly in line, is there a problem if the coilover top and bottom mounts run at 90 degrees to each other. If they are run in line with each other with the arm at the correct running height there is a lot of interference fit on the top and bottom bushes which is released when I turn them to the 90. I have the bottom bracket running in line with the trailing arm but its the top bracket that slides into the roll bar hoop causing the problem thanks for any help clive.

    Dizy For A Pinto

    Hi Mick the oil came from the stem of the dizzy it was two ali parts pressed together the two became loose and therefore there was play the oil leaked out of the loose joint, at the time I removed it I had enough play to turn the top half/cap early 1/4 inch each way with the body still bolted into the block.

    Dizy For A Pinto

    All I can say is it was advertised as that, it cost in the region of £80 so I was just saying to be careful.

    Dizy For A Pinto

    Hi just a word of caution I bought a accuspark off eBay it lasted about 18 months and not many miles approx 1500 and it leaked oil out through the body casting.No one would repair it as it was a "cheap Chinese import". I'm now running a bestek system loads better and with full guarantees cheers Clive.
