  1. Hi guys and gals..... I am about to buy an RS2000 sump and pickup pipe. I an currently running a type 9 - 4 speed rocket box... It is just me or did I read somewhere that the RS2000 sump have some sort of plate on it that gets in the way of the clutch cable or something? Am I making that up? If I am right.... Can I just angle grind the plate off or is there a way around this? Thanks! Joe
  2. Hi guys and gals, I wanted to see who is active in the Hants & Dorset area. Can you please reply bellow or PM me if you are active and looking for local run outs or monthly meetings with fellow owners? I am putting together a mailing list, you don't have to join this but it will allow me to contact you directly without the need for logging on to the forum to check for meets. All meets will still be posted and updated here as the primary point of information for everyone. I am hoping we can get a few cars out for a cruise before the end of September, so if your interested, let me know your location and dates your available. THANKS!! Joe
  3. What length manifold do you have? I have seen this setup with a filter on before a while back so it must be possible. Have you got any images?
  4. I ckeced and double checked that. It ended up being that the sump had been shortened by the original owner to much, its about 35mm to shallow. Which when there's not much to play with already really made a difference. All sorted now with the help of an Accusump. Was cheaper than a RS sump + pickup!
  5. No Problem at all. If you are happy for me to message you when I plan a m onthly run out please PM me your email address and I will build up a mailing list or local owners who are interested in run outs. Your address wont be used for anything other than a monthly run out notification.
  6. Yup that's the one, Compton Abbas is a great place for breakfast like you say. good roads, plenty of parking and great food. Ideal.
  7. Sounds promising. Thanks Nick.
  8. Anyone got a vernier pulley for a Pinto? 2.0l block. Ideally, if im being fussy... in red? Let me know!
  9. Hi Guys and Gals, 2 Things.. 1. I am considering a Vernier for my pinto. 2.0l with twin 45s, FR32 cam. Im running 16 degree advance on ignition at the mo but I feel the engine should have a bit more umph. Maybe a small amount of adjustment on the cam via a vernier will help? Any recommendations on verier settings on a pinto with similar setup as me? 2. Anyone got a decent Vernier fully for pinto 2.0l kicking about they no longer want and would like to part with for some cash? Im im being picky... In a nice red colour, haha.
  10. Thanks for the welcome And. I look forward to getting the central south kits out and about in the coming months and years. Any advise from other secretaries who have prior knowledge on how to make a busy and successful area please feel free to let me know any tips!

    Stalk Question

    Agreed with above. Hazards have a direct live feed so if your fusebox fries or you have an electrical fault they should din most occasions still work. After all they need to work if your broken down at the side of the road. I would expect it is the relay (Ticker) or the fuse. You know the lamps are working as you have hazards working so that takes them out of the process. Keep us posted.
  12. Hi Guys and Gals, Just putting the feelers out there to see who in the Hants / Dorset area may be up for an early run out this coming Saturday. I know its last min but the weather now seems to be improving and we don't need more of an excuse than that to get out and about... Any interested parties please reply bellow or PM me. I am thinking we take in Zig Zag hill on route if peoples locations favour this. Wont be a huge run out but none the less it should be fun and get a few cars together for a cruise. Joe
  13. Be careful with a pull over cover, these can scratch the paint as per previous comment above. I suggest a cotton throw over the car first to protect it. Also - Covers hold moisture and can aid rapid growth of rust when condensation forms. A temp structure is a better idea but short term a pull on will do the job...
  14. If you take your car to a nice friendly independent MOT centre they will probably pass it for you. They know that's kits aren't always perfect and so are generally a bit more lenient to things like emissions. I think officially you should have a CAT but that's 'officially'. A bit like mine with no side mirrors, official I should have them.... I don't. Never have. Yet passes each time. I had just fitted a new pairs of Weber 45s to my engine before my last MOT. The emissions were way over but he passed it and said check your timing and tune the carbs down a bit. Of course this is not always the case but any MOT tester with a few years mechanical engineering behind them should understand the Cache 22. As for the sensor, not needed in most cases so I would be confident to say remove it. My mate runs a Zetec with out one and has no problems. Im guessing but might get a few less MPG without it fitted as ECU will be thinking its broken or faulty? Total guess that one.
  15. I have read that and is where I got my measurements from to make sure the 'level' is correct. It was found to be the depth of the sump causing issues. I did consider the RS2000 sump but I read somewhere that it wont fit with my type 9 4 speed rocket box? The clutch cable or something cant be run where it needs to be on the RS sump due to the design?
