Wheely good builder!

Wheely good builder! (4/5)



  1. Hi Richy. I've just sent you a PDF of a manual. Hope it helps. David
  2. Thanks for that. My wife will be navigating now which is great because it's a complicated route. Definitely not just head south.
  3. You should have a bar that folds back and is held in place by straps. This is the usual method
  4. I've just had the start list. Some fantastic cars in the lineup. I have a couple of 2bs just behind me. Should be fun.
  5. Hi. Welcome to the club. I have attached a copy of the full build manual. It may give you some clues. Good luck. David 463815611_fullbuildmanual.pdf
  6. Luckily the old switch came out easily otherwise I would have been cutting a whole in the tunnel. It had fallen apart. New switch in and working.
  7. This has been given the go ahead. Anybody else signed up?
  8. Thanks all. Looking at pictures of replacement switches it's clear the middle has dropped out of mine so I've ordered a new one. Hopefully problem solved then.
  9. Hi. I noticed that the reverse light plug has come unplugged and was hanging down under the car. I can only just get at the socket from beside the gear lever. Does this plug just push in? I did the best at full finger stretch but lights aren't working. Does the plug have to go in a certain way? Thanks in advance.

  11. Hi. I went to through the same issues a few years ago. I couldn't find an off the shelf kit for the tie bars so made my own using the original anti roll bar. Have a look for Dave Andrews on Google. It's got loads of useful info including some drawings for the brackets. As for the springs, 120 is about right. Size depends what coilovers you have at the moment. If they are the original Zimmerman's it is well worth replacing the whole units. I managed to find some used ones which fitted fine. Lots of people recommend Dave at Dampertec who knows his stuff about these cars. Having done the work it's great to see the wheels moving up and down.

    Hi. That's the connection to the vacuum advance on your distributor.
  13. I replaced the first stage spring with a tighter one. Now running at 12 degs without any pinking and feels much better. Worth fiddling!
  14. It's more comfy when I nod off
  15. Took her up to a local hill to blow off the cobwebs. Beautiful day on the South Downs. Various winter fixes working well. Happy days.
