  1. Thanks to everyone for turning up tonight, nice to have a catch up.
  2. Ok, I've make a booking for 19 people. If you want to come along, let me know asap and I'll amend the booking a couple of days beforehand.

    MGB handbrake on the side of the tunnel on the driver's side. Fits between the seat and the tunnel.

    2L Zetec

    Might help if you say what parts your after.
  5. 1mm bigger sounds about right. The edge of the core plug only needs to turn in a bit as it's pressed in. Use some sealant around the edge, something like red Hylomar.
  6. It's nearly that time again, the West Mids post Christmas meal which due to circumstances outside our control, last happened in 2019. The date is Wednesday 25th January 2023. Same format as previous years and at our usual monthly venue The Malt Shovel Pub, Coventry Road, Nr Stonebridge, Coventry, CV7 7HL https://maps.app.goo.gl/P7mBK68FBauW2q6C6 To keep the table bills simple, most people normally opt for the carvery but other options are available: https://www.tobycarvery.co.uk/restaurants/midlands/stonebridgeislandmeriden/carverymenu#/ Meet up from 7PM onwards and aiming to eat around 7-30. I like to give the pub a rough headcount in about a week's time and then give them a more exact numbers a few days before the event so if interested parties can pencil it in their diary and let me know as soon as possible please. Everyone welcome (including ladies and kids) and new members (or those thinking of joining) are especially welcome. ATTENDING Richard and Jackie Dean and Nicola Martin and Jeff Steve, Dee and Paige Steve, Rebecca, Geoff and Pat Bob and Di Jez Dan, Becky and Lily Andi, Clare and Jasper
  7. https://www.mm-4x4.com/range-rover-p38-v8-petrol-fuel-pump---stc4344-8443-p.asp Shop around, prices vary.
  8. I fitted Landrover pump in tank in my 2B. It needs to be modified to reduce the overall height to fit in the tank which is a fiddle but do able. Tank needs a bigger hole making in the top which you can do in-situ. You need to cut the hole very accurately or it won't seal, this means draining the tank completely then chain drill and file the hole which will be about 100mm diameter. You need to make up a clamping arrangement to clamp the pump down on to the tank. I've probably got photos somewhere of what I did that I can share. Sender unit can be used but you need to modify the float arm to get it to work.
  9. A degree or so of negative camber (in at the top) won't hurt. The limiting factor is you can only rotate the top ball joint in the wishbone by whole turns and still have the taper pointing down to fit in the hub upright. This can make it impossible to get the same camber on both sides.
  10. Yes, night and day. £ for £ it's the best money you'll spend to improve driveability
  11. Can someone with a Superspec who's got weather gear measure from the top of their windscreen frame back to the centre of the roll bar in mm. Helping someone who needs to fit their windscreen and frame before they start installing the weather gear. Obviously he wants to start by getting the screen in the right position.
  12. Good night out, nice to catch up with everyone. Thanks to Chris for doing the organising.
  13. Last Wednesday of the month, 6pm onwards, Malt Shovel Pub, Coventry Road, Nr Stonebridge, Coventry, CV7 7HL. I'll aim to be there just after 630pm, generally they're trying to kick us out just after 9pm so if you're coming, don't leave it too late. Also, if you want to eat, book beforehand as they don't normally let people just rock up and eat. Entrance to the pub car park is off the A452 Chester Road heading North 50 yards from the island. Everyone welcome. See you there.
  14. Jackie Duck parfait, Roast butternut squash and Brie tart. Richard Duck parfait, Turkey breast Thanks Chris.
  15. To add to what Alan has said, if you move house, update your address in your Paypal account. That's the address we're most likely to use to send magazines and memberships to.
  16. If you want to increase the compression ratio more, you should have the head skimmed. You've already got the high compression pistons, the only other thing that will increase the compression is to reduce the combustion chamber volume. The crank journals are now undersize, this does nothing for compression. If the big ends were offset ground, you'd gain a bit more capacity but you've got more from the larger bore. The deck surface of the block looks cleaned up already, if the head hasn't been skimmed, I'd just get that done and put it together.
  17. I'd be on the lookout for a complete unfinished kit with a donor V5. You'll be paying over £1k to £1.25k for it but there will be parts you don't need that you can sell on so you should get everything you need at least than the cost of buying individual parts.
  18. Positive Design in Tamworth did mine. https://www.positive-design.ltd.uk/ They supplied 3M wrap and did the 4 arches and nosecone for under £200 (it was a few years ago).
