Re: Twin carbs and manifolds

That set up looks like what my mate had fitted to his turner, I think it was a 948cc A series engine.

Re: how's your legs??

I have just replaced a drivers side chassis leg and the old one was dented and had a patch but when it was cut out it was full of rust, Even though it seemed ok it was very rough inside, the new one has been cleaned up coated with red oxides and has weld through primer on the faces. The new panel i ...

Utter scum strike yet again, There needs to me a tracker fitted to a car and left out as bait and a jail term fitting the crime that reflects the pain and suffering to owners.

Re: 625XKN Darlaston 1 June 2019

Is the original Facebook link available, I will share it with friends and family Cannock way, It might be worth keeping a look on Ebay at local car sellers with parts.

Re: Best type of garage door

After we did the garage extension we decided to make the doors out of box section and clad them, The cost was a factor but the security and look tipped the balance.

Re: 948cc engine strip continued.

This is just how i found my traveller 948cc when i first got it, It had been serviced by a local garage for years but the guy i got it off was about 80 and had no idea, The good news is the garage has now changed hands and the owner has nothing to do with cars now. I have changed to a 1098 engine an...

Re: Core Plugs

Thanks again Phil, I have a few things on the go using citric acid and i was thinking about using something like an old central heating pump to make a heated pumped system to clean rusty parts and maybe the engine water ways, The hot water does help the process and if it is a success i will post pic...

Core Plugs

Are there any core plugs that can be recommended, I am in need of a few as 2 have failed in a block, It is a 1098 minor but if all A series engines are the same core plug i would be happy to buy more than i need as i am sure i will need them again.

Re: Body shapes after 1964

I think the 64 was 1056xxx and the later car is 1278xxx i presume you mean the chassis numbers and not the other number on the right hand side of the engine bay below the tax disc.
