  2. You are probably best making your own to fit your car and the cycle wings you have got.

      I removed the old pump and made a blank to cover the hole in the block. Pump was off e bay, about £15 _ £20. All dead simple.

      Thanks buddy have you any pics of your set up please..what filters you running ?.

       

  4. I've had both over the years. Weber's were always going out of balance and contently needed fiddling with (or so it seemed). I changed to R1 bike carbs and once sheet up have been fine. 2.1 pinto by the way.
  5. If you have a mechanical fuel pump fitted, that could be the problem. The fuel in the carbs will evaporate over a few days. It then takes the pump a while to resupply them. If you fit an electric pump this problem should be solved. If you already have an electric pump, then carry on with the head scratching!
  6. Mine is on the bulkhead between the battery and the peddle box. It's much smaller than yours though. It holds about 1 litre. Can't remember filling it up more than once in the last 16 years actually.
  7. I assume that this is still on. Weather forecast for Saturday looks good.
  8. Don't forget about this one guys and gals. I will hope to have a run over weather permitting.
  9. Some of you are stating pressure in psi and others in bar. There is a big difference. 1 bar = 15 psi.
  10. We had a couple of instances at the Huntingdon weekend where a couple of cars suffered poor starting and miss firing. This was on the run in the afternoon (saturday) and put down to fuel evaporation due to the high temp. Have a run out in the evening when its a bit cooler and see what happens.
  11. As above, great weekend. Craig and his family were brilliant hosts once again. Nice run out to a couple of pubs to boost fluid levels. Excellent.
  12. Gear heads on the ground. Newark show ground this Sunday 23rd. Not sure if i'm going but the turn out is usually good.
  13. As per last year I will bring my own Veggie (awkward sod) food. Anyone who is still thinking of going and undecided should make the effort. Really good weekend with plenty of space for camping and above all excellent hosts.
  14. I will try to make this one. Weather permitting.
