  1. I have a 2.0L pinto fitted with a new OE mechanical fuel pump but I cannot get the plastic in line fuel filter fitted between the pump and the carb to retain any petrol. If car stands for more than a week the petrol evaporates and it takes an eternity of pouring fuel down carb chokes to fire engine up several times to pull fuel through, even then only spurts of fuel from fuel pump can be seen entering filter, is there any way to bleed fuel system
  2. I used these taken from forums to successfully wire sierra column switches to mini wiper motor
  3. where is your switch fitted? you may have to move it to get it to come on at right time ie NG on cooler part of system leaving temp to go right up
  4. Has anyone fitted the propshaft catch plates from Danst eng. ? if so have you any pics of how they are attached?
  5. To all my friends and their families in the NE RHOCAR group, stay safe, Fit and well, I hope to see you later in the year Harry And to all RHOCAR members around the country.

  8. Hi Alan Hope all's well, your pics of bike carb mods look good, Ill be there weds (hopefully) and I want to pic your brains (as usual) about anti roll bar mod n driveshaft issue and general enjoy the craik, Harry
  9. Hi Stu Can you give me a posted price for the Transit drag links (pair) (Top ball joint for monocoques and 2b) if you still have them Kind Regards Harry
  10. Hi Alan Hopefully I’ll see you all on weds at the church mouse, all being well, I may have to rely on sarah getting me there Stay safe Harry
  11. 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
  12. Hi Elliot a couple of pics of my set up as above & runs spot on
  13. 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
  14. Ill be there in the kit ( with me roof on ), hopefully drier and warmer than last time we were out Alan lol
  15. 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
  16. 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
