  1. I think the early Stoneleigh show was Dragon sports cars or something like that. Various companies are now springing up offering conversions but they are generally more than the car is worth. a couple of companies I’m aware of are: Ecoclassics https://www.ecoclassics.co.uk/ Electrogenic https://www.electrogenic.co.uk/?gclid=Cj0KCQiAqvaNBhDLARIsAH1Pq519QRSgWuJa_3j9QPkRK_zyLoBFqne6BMmIwjTmXO87CRKBEZh_bSAaAlQmEALw_wcB Zero EV https://zero-ev.co.uk/?v=79cba1185463 Electric classic cars https://www.electricclassiccars.co.uk/ Electric classic cars had a series on TV called vintage voltage. There was always a 7 type car in the background. An MK I think. Eco classics founder originally converted his Westfield 11 and was in one of the Complete Kitcar magazines. MEV also dabbled a bit in electrification. Hope this is of use Dave

    Exmo TCA mod

    My tie bars are adjustable. I’ve got a threaded rose joint that allowed the tie bar to be lengthened or shortened, this allows the TCA and suspension to work together.
  3. The Dax Rush used square /rectangular headlights. They were based somewhere in Harlow,Essex if I remember correctly.

    No problem. I’ll try and get a picture later so you can see the end result.

    Sparepart. As I moved the distance of the wheel outwards I had to be careful of the clearance of the suspension in the buttress. There’s not a lot of room for manoeuvring so there is no adjustment of caster as far as I’m concerned. Camber adjustment is obviously by the TCA and by moving the base of the wheel out it actually aligns the suspension strut to a slightly better angle. I do need to get a better solution for this though and I have some floating bearing top mounts from an escort that needs machining that should sort this eventually. Self centering seems quite positive but I need to play with it slightly as my suspension is set way too hard and this could improve it later on. One thing to note however, was that I had to enlarge the TCA mounting hole on the chassis so once I’d done that, there was no going back.

    I did this about 5 years ago. I took a hugely scientific approach to it. I used a known flat floor, (in my case a hangar) and used my iPhone as it has an inclinometer to measure the angle of the outside of the wheel. I used a tape measure on the forward and rear facing areas of the groves on the tyre to work out the toe in. Finally I took a few steps back and looked at it by eye. I work upon the assumption that if it looks right it will be better than it was.

    That’s exactly what I’ve done with my Exmo. It makes a decent difference. Make sure you get the right TCAs though as there are two types. I think mine were the nut type
  8. If it doesn’t, at least there are plenty of manifolds in on eBay it reasonable prices.
  9. I had a vernier pulley that slipped and knocked the timing out and had spitting back through the carbs. Check the TDC against the pulley.
  10. Here’s some pics of mine. Underside and from above. Hopefully they make sense and give a degree of fitment. Dave
  11. Sparepart. that’s all good. Send me delivery details and I’ll work it out. Dave
  12. Hi Sparepart. Its my understanding that the later carbed cars, before the oval efi ports, which were marked with a P, PP, R or RR were unleaded. I don’t really know the history of the head. I purchased it about 4 years ago with the intention of porting and polishing it and improving it with a hotter cam whilst I could still use my existing head on the car. A few weeks after I purchased it an EFI head with FR22 cam became available. Whilst in my possession the head has been in dry storage and looks to be in really clean condition. The valves all operate and and don’t stick, but will need lapping in at the very least. I'm happy to do a video run through if you’d like and am happy to deliver to Shrivenham. Dave
  13. I’ve been clearing out the garage and have an unleaded carb head, stamped with a P, in good condition with std cam ( I believe). The valves all look good albeit a bit dirty. It would obviously need a strip down to be sure. Advertised here first before it goes on on EBay or FB marketplace. Looking for £60 and would prefer collection only due to its size and weight. Location is OX18, Oxfordshire
  14. Free, Just cover the postage. PM me your details and I’ll get them packaged up.
  15. Are these what you’re looking for ?
