    Quantum kit car

    Friend of mine down here in Devon now owns Quantum sports cars, there seems to be a thriving owners club and if I remember they had a good stand/ turn out at stoneligh
  2. Thanks for info Ian, the adjuster seemed to operate as when i put drums back on and pressed the brake pedal I heard the ratchet movement work. Im getting a local garage to look over it as now weather has turned I dont have anywhere undercover to work on it and im fed up working in the rain!! Im going to give them the shoes and new cylinders and let them thoroughly check everything
  3. Thanks Alan I was thinking something similar so will get a couple of brake cylinders, the only thing is that the cylinders do seem to move in and out. The pads were Mintex ones , number MFR163 but I think any 2.0L Sierra would do
  4. Anyone know what sort of handbrake cable fits a super spec, standard Sierra? It seems that one side of the rear brakes don't work. The handbrake cable works, I can see the cable pulling the lever on the affected side but doesn't stop the wheel turning and neither does the footbrake yet it passed MOT and the car will hold on a hill. I was changing wheel bearing and noticed the wear on the shoes looked "wrong" see photos 1st pic new shoes 2nd old shoes, so I fitted new ones but still not holding, the brake cylinder looks fine and the auto adjuster is free moving. Only checked one side as no garage and it started peeing down!!
  5. Hi Dean I have a spare wheel, it's an array but powder coated black and has a unused but old Yokohama tyre on it, yours for postage
  6. That's exactly what I said
  7. Try and replace all coilovers but my sister in law decided to convert her garage (which I did all my dash work last year in) into a work studio. So will have to do any work outside on driveway but not sure how easy it will be, is it a job that can be done outside? Oh and try and learn to weld!!
  8. Hi Ivan My +ve coil connections has 3 wires!!, I know that 1 is ignition and another 1 goes to a fuse and if I take the fuse out car turns but wont start, and the other +ve wire disappears in to the snakes nest!! So maybe look for a fuse with a wire missing Im sure someone else may have a more definitive answer
  9. Standard noise on Superspec, If you do a search on here or look at Alans blog its well documented. Mine is fairly quiet when engine is cold but gets a little worse when hot
  10. My superspec has a bag with a pump in it And it's fitted underneath the battery tray or around that area, the tray has a little hole cut out so you can fill it. I think it only gets used when they check it at MOT On a separate note I see you still have the metal cooling pipe going across the top of the engine, most of us superspec owners have "re jigged" the cooling system to do away with that pipe, AndyW is your man as I have changed the whole rad as well to something a little smaller but more efficient.
  11. Heres the pic of the heat shield bolted together underneath
  12. Heres my exhaust and cycle wing stay. The exhaust heat shield is just a piece of stainless steel wrapped around the cat and silencer and bolted together underneath. I think you can get combined stainless exhausts with a built in cat (which is what I may do to mine when it fails). The cycle wing stays are as Alan said just a piece of metal tube bent at an angle with the wings screwed/bolted/glued to them. Anymore photos just ask

    Tyres

    Ive just changed my 20 year old Yokohama A539's for some of the new Toyo TR1's (tread pattern is nearly identical to the Rainsport 3's). Got set off ebay for about £120 delivered. Made so much difference to the ride and handling https://www.toyo.co.uk/tire/pattern/new-proxes-tr1
  14. Very nice, looked quick
  15. Hi Took car to a show at Mount Edgecombe Country Park in Torpoint Cornwall and I was very surprised when a judge walked upto me and gave me a winners certificate, I didn't realize it was that sort of show as car wasn't polished or anything!!
