Wheely good builder!

Wheely good builder! (4/6)



  1. Peter Bell


    I’ve seen the ads too, looks wonderful, but perhaps no one on here has tried it.
  2. Decent shocks will help but is it a ride height problem, which end is grounding.
  3. You’ve confused yourself by putting the carb the wrong way around, rotate it 180deg and it should make sense including the 2 mounting holes for the bracket.
  4. I'm afraid the expert on lightweights, GDC Graham Coles, passed away quite some time ago now so I think you may just have to search in the lightweight section for any help. I do know he reinforced most of the car, the original diff mount failed after a short time with about 150 BHP. He built 2 of these, if the owners of them are on here, perhaps they could supply some photos?
  5. There used to be a pinned notice on this site for improving the rear axle location on these models
  6. Before you start changing things you need to find out what the current wiring is. Sounds odd you have these lights on, any idea what they are supposed to be? Hopefully there will be someone nearby who can help.
  7. I think the early 2Bs had the monocoque rear wings.
  8. How do find the members map these days, I expect it’s easy but I can’t find it!
  9. There’s also a lot of good information on Dave Andrews old site if you have not seen it. http://www.dvandrews.co.uk/
  10. It was some time ago when I last removed mine but I split the engine from the gearbox, it seemed fairy easy that way, remove the rad etc. slide the engine forward (on a skateboard) then lift it out. Gearbox can then be then pulled into the engine bay and removed. Don’t forget the gearbox mountings.
  11. What model Robin Hood have you got?
  12. I’ve got some 15” momo wheels in Bedford if you wanted to try but they are Et38 so as you said they will need 20mm spacers to get them near the right position. I think ET 15 which Richard used is an unusual size.
  13. Peugeot wheels are also 108 pcd but the spigot size is bigger so you need a little reducer insert.
  14. I’ve posted the wristbands this morning to all that requested, hopefully they will be with you shortly. Unfortunately I will be away so can’t be there, I hope you all enjoy it!
