  1. I am looking for a handbrake lever gaiter, I have the chrome surround which is basically a rectangle but rounded at each end measuring 200X80mm, there are lots on e-bay but no dimensions are given I wondered if anyone had a similar surround and could advise on the one to buy, quite happy to cut and shut if that is required.
  2. My Haynes runs the original Sierra fuel system, namely the mechanical fuel pump connected to what is called in the manual a fuel flow regulator/vapour separator. the system has a fuel return pipe to the tank, I am sure I read somewhere that back in the day this regulator was bypassed when a fault was suspected. I can't see any reason on a system like this to run a regulator or a fuel return and would prefer to remove it has the pipework is not very well run. Anybody got any input?
  3. I bought this car built so the fuel set up is as the donor car would have been (Ford sierra laser) so it is running the mechanical pump which is run through a pressure regulator I believe (I am investigating that now although when I put it back together I may just run it from a separate bottle of fuel to rule it out). Needle valve is a definite maybe, checking out a repair kit now. Thanks for the input chaps.

    1.6 Pinto.

    1.6 Pinto running a Weber 2V carb, running rough and will not tick over, tried all the obvious, cleaned carb, checked float level,HT leads etc. It appears to be grossly over fuelling but I can't seem to pinpoint why, any ideas?
  5. Seats sold on e bay, very satisfied customer.

    Seats surplus to requirements, a couple of minor marks as shown in pics but general condition and foam is very good. Seats are "Cobra 038" if this is of any significance. Open to any sensible offer.
  7. Yea, that's a thought, gonna get some supaguard for the front of the rear wheel arches anyway. Maybe clear lacquer?
  8. My Haynes had a rubbish paint job when I bought it so I have stripped of the paint and intend to have a combination of vinyl ( I have some great contacts in the trade) and polished panels, what is the best way to protect the polished aluminium?
  9. I'm new to all of this but as this is local to me I feel it would be a good place to start so I would like to register my interest.
  10. I would have to agree with brumster in my experience these joints do vary greatly in quality, remember when greasing the grease is only added through the "cross" of the joint and will follow the line of least resistance so don't be shy and keep firing it in there!
  11. Thanks for the replies, very helpful, armed with the info you have supplied I feel I know how to proceed.
  12. Thanks for the reply, yes I have the log book for the car it has been on the road but I have it sorned at the moment, although I bought the car running my intention is to strip it down myself over the winter and get it MOT'd next spring.
  13. I am a new member looking for info on my Haynes roadster, although I am an experienced mechanic this is my first venture into kit cars, it's a project for me and my grandson. Looking for some info on windscreens, where to purchase? must I have windscreen wipers/demister etc or can I simply remove for MOT purposes. Thanks.
