  1. They are all on YouTube, which is quicker and easier and saves postage
  2. Yes, but it all went through without asking me who to pay. And it must have worked as I have just received confirmation.
  3. Application forms now available for the run. 26th April. https://stiltoncheeserun.uk/entry-form/ But be aware the entry fee has gone up to £12.50, which is a massive jump from last year.

    Fuel economy

    Agree 100%. But don't forget the diff. I am running a 3.62 diff on my fuel injected Superspec and regularly get 33-34 mpg. AndyW has a 3.92 (I think) diff on his Superspec and gets appreciably less.
  5. I have always assumed it was a standard Sierra one as we definitely use a Sierra handbrake lever and Sierra brakes. But from what you are saying it has nothing to do with the cable. Your problem seems to be seized cylinders. AndyW has recently experienced the identical symptoms so I'll leave it to him to talk you through it. What was the serial number of your new pads ?
  6. Adjusting the camber is not easy. You have to break the top joint and then rotate the 'cup' to move it in or out. From memory I think a single 360 rotation equates to 1/4 deg.
  7. Alan, Can you help with part numbers for the U,J,s on the 05 Superspec, The gearbox is Ford MT75 and the Diff I beleive is Ford Sierra.

    Any help would be appreciated.


  8. I should have trusted my weather record more. As you may have noticed the weather front that was supposed to hang around all day, marched quickly east and was clear of our area by 09:30. So I drove down at 10:00 and the weather was fine up to about 15:00, although a bit chilly. I took this photo at 10:30 and as you can see, we had a grand total of 5 cars rather than the normal 40 or so. Although, to be fair, once other people realised the weather forecast was totally wrong we got about 6 more during the day. Anyone recognise the car next to me ? Al
  9. Even I have to admit this looks to be a non-starter. If there is a magical clearance I will go down, otherwise I will go down in the tintop and explain.
  10. Don't forget to take plenty of pictures of the build. Depending on the state of the car you may have to disassemble some of it to take pictures of the parts that the IVA inspector will not be able to see on the completed car.
  11. I don’t think they cancel it if the weather is poor. Sheep are used to rain I will make my decision on the day. But don’t worry about not coming if it is pouring down, the organisers will understand.
  12. Hi Alan whats your e mail address photos of memsscan too big to post on forum

  13. Crank Position Sensor come loose/unplugged ?
  14. 40Mb of stuff e-mailed When you get around to looking at my MEMS diagnostic software let me know and I will lend you my spare data cable. I will be interested to see if you are the first Superspec owner to have a working lambda sensor !! I think your closest Superspec is AndyW over at Kempston, about an hour's drive. Have a look on the Member Map to see all the other 2bs.
