  1. Is your sump modified and has it got a baffle plate in. If modified is there a reduction in the amount of oil it holds less oil in sump less to go round, my sump has been cut down and holds less if you read the dip stick.so mine is just over the max to allow correct amount required.The oil return holes are large can’t see it be stored up top.
  2. Faulty gauge possibly? Try a different one to eliminate the gauge first .
  3. Good advice brumster I started in the middle tested it out on known road conditions and tweaked it down until happy with the ride - = softer + = harder. Went on a long run Saturday and really enjoyed the ride and comfort .
  4. Sounds like a start point for a essex meet I’m interested in seeing some different builds and sharing experiences not sure yet about secretary roll but let’s get some cars together first. I’m in Marks Tey Colchester who else is out there in essex let’s find a central location. Reply with location and get the ball rolling
  5. Just been playing with mine on a 2b with wishbones on front and gaz shocks seem to have 5 complete turns from - to + so started at 2.5 turns ( half way ) still a bit hard so backed all off 1 more turn and now lovely and comfortable ride maybe not track race settings but very nice to drive now,I was loosing teeth before . So in short terms I’m set 1.5 turns from from full - position .

  8. *bleep* job. plastic scrapper ,hot air gun and loads of patients. Glad to see I'm not the only one who has gone through this stage in the build. Your not alone brother.
  9. Hi I paid £450 for the IVA test Norwich great expirence I trailed the car there with a mate and covered the fuel so you might need to include trailer hire expense etc. £55 reg fee and £129.25 for first six months road tax . I believe the road tax may change after April the first as big changes on all new vehicles .these cars are one of the hardest to biuld and wyou are always finding you are spending money .i bought my car 80% built and most parts to finish but ended up stripping back and starting again and two years later it's finished. Brian .
  10. All done and registered sent off the forms and money on the 29th jan and log book back on the 6th feb .i phoned dvla the week before to be told a min of 6 weeks but world record back in a week ,chuffed to bits now I can get out and enjoy the car . I will post some pictures at some point happy days.
  11. I'm filling mine in now I went for tax for six months at £129.25 . I have a question do you only need the v55/4 form and doner log book for age related ? Or do you need to have v627/1 ? . Also mot do you need one with the iva certificate . Confused .com?
  12. Hi guys Reading all these old posts is a great way of overcoming some of the issue around a 2b hood build . I passed my iva first time last week with hints and tips from you all (thank you) now I'm fitting my wet weather gear not a great fit and I'm happy for it to fit where it touches as hope never to need it . But after findinding out the roof was to short I then find this measurement of 66 inch screen to rear panel .only problem is to fit the screen at this the heart ducts on the scuttle will be outside the screen and the is miles away from the wipers , I bought a part built car and the scuttle is fitted correctly but I can't see how you could ever have the screen at 66 inch , anyone ever come across this.
  13. Cheers guys , so pleased with the result I will post some pictures .
  14. Big day today my car has passed its iva test first time no issue thanks to Dennis at Norwich for today very helpfully .
  15. It's booked 25th November Norwich test centre , couple of weeks to check the car over again.
