  1. Absolutely brilliant turn out today, greatly helped by the weather. Hundreds of cars of all ages and types as well as a fair number of kit cars. They do have club stands so this is a possibility for our club if enough interest is generated in the future. Definitely a show I will do again. Dave
  2. Notts Classic Car & Motorcycle Show. 10th Oct. Held at Thoresby Park near Newark. Many types of cars including kit cars. I went to the one held in August and there must have been around 500 vehicles. Weather forecast looks promising at the moment.
  3. Another option for the coming weekend, Sunday and Monday, 29th & 30th Aug. Called Notts Classic Car & Motorcycle Show. It's at Thorseby park near Ollerton, Newark. Allsorts of cars including kit cars, bikes etc. £5 per vehicle paid on entry. Just search Thorseby park car show for details if you fancy this one. Dave.
  4. I plan to be there all being well. Hope to see some familiar faces. Dave.
  5. You are probably best making your own to fit your car and the cycle wings you have got.
  6. 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.
  7. 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!
  8. 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.
  9. I assume that this is still on. Weather forecast for Saturday looks good.
  10. Don't forget about this one guys and gals. I will hope to have a run over weather permitting.
  11. Some of you are stating pressure in psi and others in bar. There is a big difference. 1 bar = 15 psi.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Gear heads on the ground. Newark show ground this Sunday 23rd. Not sure if i'm going but the turn out is usually good.
  15. 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.
  16. I will try to make this one. Weather permitting.
  17. Slight change of plan for me. Problem with the RobinHood so I will be pulling the caravan too. Steady convoy! See you tomorrow.
  18. How about 11.30 Saturday morning at Trowell services M1 for the meet up for the run down to Stoneleigh. All welcome.
  19. I'm not going to make it to the meeting, as usual, working away. Could you please post the arrangements for meeting up to travel to Stoneleigh. I can fit in with any time/meeting point.
  20. I had twin 45s and now bike carbs. Mechanical pump, no problem.
  21. My series 111 is as per the photo as shown by Allan65. The shocks on these are inboard. As Dave Ed says no 2 Robin Hoods are the same. This does sometimes mean that in the cars past someone may have changed things. Get to a meet and have a nosey at some other cars.
