  1. Hi Alan All the best to you and your family, I’ll not make the adhoc meeting this month and possibly not the church mouse meeting either as I’m back in hospital again since New Year’s Day, but hope to be up and about in Feb. In the kit. Take care and pass my best wishes on the members that turn up. Harry
  2. Hi Elliot a couple of pics of my set up as above & runs spot on
  3. Hi Elliot I used to have a hole in my old bonnet ( my car has a 2.1 pinto with a twin choke webber carb) and I had a K & N filter fitted which was ok, but when I got my new bonnet with louvre vents pressed in it meant I would have had to cut hole where Louvres were for filter so I manufactured a mild steel airbox to fit on carb, using original filter mounting holes I then fed a ducted hose from this down into nosecone, and fitted a performance cone filter to this in nose cone, result better running and cosmetic finish
  4. Ill be there in the kit ( with me roof on ), hopefully drier and warmer than last time we were out Alan lol
  5. In reply Nelmo, Yes I could stretch to a new one thanks, but having already splashed out on a new set of ETB gauges & senders etc which are basically in my opinion not up to job I thought I would try this 'vintage' piece of kit to see if it was any better having been manufactured in a decent period & not banged together …… but thanks for your helpful comment
  6. I have a Smiths 4cyl negative earth tacho I want to wire into my car but unsure of what connections go where, I have searched several sites and all say 4 wires to tacho but there is no spade for earthing casing ….. is my diagram correct? any help would be much appreciated I was going to connect wire from -ve side of coil to No 2 on pic and No1 on pic to -ve terminal on coil then connect No 3 to permanent +ve supply
