Wheely good builder!

Wheely good builder! (4/5)



  1. Hiya, I originaly had a filer on my 32/36 webber under the bonnet. However the best improvment i made was to purchach a tall RAM filter and cut hole in the bonnet and have the filter pretrude. It made the webber breath better with cooler air. That was until i went the hole bike carb route......
  2. Thanks, deosnt say if they are poly or not..!
  3. Hi, Can someone point me to a link for these bushes in poly please..having problem finding the exact size. Thanks
  4. When my IVA failed on a similar issue with the seat mounting points, as I put before, I put about a 5mm metal plate right across the 2 front mounting points inside the car, then spreader plates under neither. This was suppose to reduce the effect of the forward & down force the seats would have in a crash.
  5. You may just have to go with new wings like i just have... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Haynes-Locost-Caterham-Westfield-Classic-Kit-Car-Front-Wings/153458029503?hash=item23bacfb3bf:g:qmIAAOSwxOVbzdl0
  6. Hi, I'm after a good pair of front wings please, standard or otherwise....to fit my series 3a. Let me know what you have..with pictures please. Thanks..
  7. For IVA i had to put a spreader plate going across the front, under the seat between the 2 front bolts. He explained that in an impact the weight is forced down onto the front on the seat. I think it also depends on what seats you use and how they are bolted to the floor. If they are flat to the floor, its different than if they have small load areas that could be forced through the floor in an impact.
  8. The cars a 3a New so there are noticable differneces in the suspension setup to that of a 3a i.e. stearing rack is higher as it sits on a stainless steel box section.
  9. Ive put them back in place so you can see them as they would in place....albiet longer as i havent fully screwed them back in
  10. Dont know I only know there on mine.. Managed to heat and remove the large threaded side that goes into the ball joint. Just need to know the size and get a new piece of threaded bar or change the ball joint to a long Male threaded end instead of a female like it is now..
  11. Hi, Anyone know if you can buy the extenders between the rack and track rod. My n/s one the thread to the track rod has bent..I can either try and bend it back or get another Thx
  12. Found the issue of no spark...one of the 2 wires from the coil to electronic ignition in dizzy had come free from its spade connector..once I put a new spade connect on she started straight away...seemed to run great, gave her a test run and went like a rocket...however she stopped again, just 50 metre from the house.... started her again and managed to get her home.. I've got HT lead testers on so can see her sparking...they all seem ok at start then 1 & 2 start to miss and fade and then stop...so I'm reconning it's the accuspark electronic ignition that's at fault..
  13. has fuel, no spark, so either rotor arm or accuspark ignition in dizzy... Power from coil to dizzy ok...no power showing from HTs... Changed dizzy cap but motor factor didn't have rotor arm, so will get one from somewhere tomorrow or Monday.
  14. Yes spark dizzy lines up with no.1 ..don't seem to have a spark ...so will start to look there 1st and just pull off dule line to test fuel pumping...new pump so I know it should be good...
