  1. I have twin 45 on my st170 engine, great noise but not really fuel efficient. But who cares! I might go to injection in the future but no rush to update.
  2. Hi all, The car has been on the road for 6 years and one thing that annoys me is the seeking suspension bushes. They are the original bushes from GBS and I put them in dry, with no grease. Has anyone found an alternative or should I buy new from GBS and add some grease? Thinking silicone grease or copper slip but will be guided by you knowledge and expertise. Thank you

    This is what being club member is all about, you cannot put a price on it. But when you need something a club member is always willing to help out.
  4. Do we have any flyers for this event that we can circulate at future car meets?
  5. Nice matches the car very well.
  6. Hi Richy, Hyperlink goes to burtonpower, can you please share the supplier details?

    Heat soak

    Going to my ex-AA days, we had circa 20-30% more breakdowns in excessive heat i.e. at the beach side in summer. The was mostly due to two areas; general poor maintenance during service, hose inspection, seeping radiator matrix and my favourite 'I thought something was wrong because I have to top up the water every week'. Secondly the antifreeze mixture was totally wrong, especially if they have been topping up with water. A lot of people think antifreeze is to stop the coolant from freezing but it has cleaning chemicals and more importantly raises the boiling point. Buy a coollant tester and check your mixture. Most is us would be surprised.
  10. Basically anything that can be touched by a sphere, use half a tennis ball needs to be rounded or covered. Although I have never caught myself on sharp edges but did burn my leg once on the exhaust.
  11. I have not seen that roll bar before, I would contact GBS to make sure it's an original Zero. Obviously the previous owner could have made the change. The rest of the build looks OK.
  12. Zetecs always run hot, something to do with emissions I believe i would test sensor gauge in boiling water. Fairly common to be out a little.

    Non return valve

    If you are still using the mechanical pump then drain back is normally a sign of the one way valves/diaphragm thingy is on the way out. Fitting a one-way valve will help but probably need a longer solution or retrofit an electrical facet pump.
  14. Hi, I was talking to another club member today and we was interrupted and didn't finish the conversation. What is the right order to sort geometry on GBS Zero, and what should the readings be? 1. Tyre pressure hot or cold 2. Ride height and rake 3. Tracking, camber and caster Etc. Etc.
  15. I have invited the Staffs guys.
  16. We could try and do a Leicestershire and Staffordshire meet in the middle, north of Brum on A5 truck stop!
  17. Thanks Andy, I will be there, hopefully the weather will be good and I will take the kit to work in Cannock.
  18. Never thought Gaz would sell it. A very rare beast indeed.
  19. I will check when I get home, working in office today.
  20. I have a starter in the garage not sure what it was off, if you upload a photo or pm me I will check.
  21. I'm getting a warm tingling feeling inside! I should get out more.
  22. Thanks Peter, very useful I will check this weekend. So cruising on motorways it would be better to have a 3.38 diff and to put power on the ground a higher ratio of 3.92 but be prepared for more engine noise.

    Alps in July?

    So jealous, I'm aiming to go to Le Mans next year with NWKCC. Any hints for such a long journey would be appreciated.
  24. Thanks I will look into this but gearboxes tend to be very expensive compared to diffs, even if I decide to go LSD. Not sure what mods are available for MT75 but I will investigate.
