  1. I that's what I have fitted and it's aboit 30mm bellow the gearbox bell housing. I have raised the engine up on the mounts but the rocker now knocks the peddle box so I'm looking back down the shorter sump route. It work as it is but it's not ideal so tempted to swap my alloy one out. Not sure yet.
  2. Looking for a pinto 2.0 sump. Shortened. With or without big wing. Side drain bung. This is to fit my Robin Hood S7. I have found a company that sells them with no exchange unit (premier motorsport developments) but having heard pretry horrific reviews about their service and items never showing up I don't fancy sending them £170 for potentially nothing.... Open to a new or used unit.
  3. Hey guys and gals, Now that the sun is poking its head out from behind the wintery clouds and the car is ready for action once again its time to head out on the open road. I am based in Doncaster and was wondering if anyone can offer any decent routes or roads for a local blast around? I often head out to the peaks climbing so am familiar with the roads around the peaks beyond Sheffield / Eccy road. I am looking for some more local stuff that if I just fancy a 1hr blat after work or whatever, I can. All advice much appreciated!
  4. OK wow, what a difference! I have my car back!! So I headed out today and took toolsdl to adjust my vernier, I tried advancing it slightly, sluggish performance. I the retarted it, holy moly, what a difference!! 1st gear, spin up, 2nd gear spin up... How she used to be! I kept retarding until I hit the max adjustment so decided to head back to the garage, remove the cam belt, move the vernier one tooth and the reset back to zero. Headed back out and made a few minor adjustments but the difference is night and day to before I did this.... SO SO SO PLEASED TO HAVE MY CAR PERFORMING A
  5. OK so I thought I would update the thread with my progress. I removed the coilovers and if I went any further they would have been hitting the top over bumps making the ride terrible so left them as they were. My next move was to remove and raise the engine mounts. I removed them, cleaned them and realised I could only gain a few mm if I just raised the engine on the 'spike' so opted to raise the entire block. I did this and now have some great clearance under the car, I would say its almost double what I had which is now plenty. I will be looking at a more 'professional' way to raise th
  6. Good shout, I only saw the fancy chrome one which looks lovely but the price less so!
  7. Oh, I already have the short ones, have done for months. Just never shifted these ones when I removed them. Thanks anyway!
  8. Looking to raise my engine a bit so need one of the low profile oil filler caps for my pinto. No real preference to colour or anything.
  9. As new condition. Came with my new carbs but needed shorter ones. 3 available. Genuine weber items. Total length 100mm
  10. I may look at a lower profile filler cap too. As that will allow me to raise the engine a good extra inch or so.
  11. Ah great, I will take a look at that! Thanks!
  12. That would be very helpful. Thanks!
  13. That may have to be an option. Will try the new springs and make a decision from there. Do you have any images of how you raised it?
  14. I have 45DCOE fitted, the limiting factor is my oil filler cap / breather. I belive the mounts are up about as much as I can get them but will certainly take a look at that as an option. I need to measure the current clearance, if I cant get it up much more with the new coils I will buy a Premier motorsports shortened Sump. This will give me an extra 20+mm I think. I'm hoping the new coils will help, when I got the car the coils were at full extension, now over the years they are as done up as I can get them and it's still sagging. So that points at coils degrading over the years I guess
  15. Thanks Nick for the quick and easy sale. Fitted already and MOT tomorrow!
