  1. Looks like it's ok. I'd just have a pressure cap on the rad and run the rad overflow down in to a catch bottle ( metal water drink bottle from poundshop) making sure the pipe goes to the bottom of the bottle and is in a couple of inches of coolant. Bottle shouldn't be sealed, just vented to atmosphere.
  2. Is the rad cap the highest point that will contain water, including the cylinder head? If it isn't, you'll need a header tank or you won't get all the airlocks out.

  4. Scroll to the bottom of the page and you can set currency and shipping location.
  5. We now have a new supplier for club branded merchandise. Redbubble provides a print on demand service that offers high quality clothing, phone cases, mugs, stickers and more. This means customers can place orders for items, with a choice of logo and have then directly delivered to their door. Initially we have created 6 different logo designs like the one at the top of this page with the car in various different colours. This can be put on a variety of clothing and non-clothing items. Our store can be found here: https://www.redbubble.com/people/rhocar/shop?asc=u Thanks to our
  6. Why don't you have the choke connected and use that for cold starts. Giving it a load of throttle might be flooding it.
  7. That sounds like the ignition timing is out. Is the distributor cap on correctly? Has the distributor moved because the clamp bolt is loose? If the distributor is loose, you'll need to rotate it a few degrees each way while trying to start it until the engine fires. Once you can get it running, you need to set the timing with a light.
  8. Apparently I could now go out in the kit and meet another kit owner outside - thought it must be 1st April. Anyway I did get out in the kit last night and today drove it to work and pulled it all apart. Looks like I picked the wrong time to do my winter mods. At least we're finally getting the chance to be out and about again. March saw the following new members joining - a warm welcome to everyone.

  9. I'm just grateful you didn't have a kilt on when you knelt down to take that picture.
  10. My 15 year old Subaru is £585 a year, £25 a month sounds quite good value.
  11. You've done a nice job there, looks really good.
  12. 1.8 Pinto isn't the most desirable engine. I think if I was in your position I'd consider a couple of other options. Option 1, keep the type 9 box and use a 2 litre zetec. Option 2, sell the type 9 (which fetch decent money) and fit an Mazda engine and box. Both these options would mean a Q plate after IVA but that makes the emissions test a bit easier and means you don't need to worry about getting the V5 and ensuring the engine numbers match.
  13. As above, need to cover 205 tyres so 230mm wide. Not to bothered about colour, what have you got>
  14. I wouldn't say that a 2B is any harder than a Zero to get through IVA, the Zero is probably easier to build but if you've got to spend £3k+ to get the kit then it certainly isn't going to be the cheaper option and it's debatable whether the final value would justify the extra cost. Your main issue will be getting the donor V5 if you're set on not going down the Q plate route and you probably need to sort this out first. In either case, don't underestimate the amount of time it takes to build a car. Starting from scratch, you would build a Zero quicker but if you've not in a hurry, the 2B
  15. February might be a short month but there's been plenty going on membership wise. We still have many members renewing which is good to see. Hopefully now we have the roadmap out of the current restrictions, we will start to see more chances to get out and about and hopefully meet up. Welcome along to the following new members who joined in February. Marc S marc spicer Leicester Malcolm P megadodo Cambridge Jacob R YellowRobinRacer Worcester Martin B BasfordM
