Re: Whats the Split screen Carb type of my car?!???

Cheers Guys.
Looks like it was leaking from around the float chamber.
Will re-build it with seal kit. Its a H1 with 601 coding on the side.

Real mismatch with this car, 948cc with an earlier carb!

Re: Has anyone heard from Russell from RTG Services lately?

Chatting with him earlier and he dosent like you....... No, sorry, I was speaking with him a few months back and he was talking about going in for major back surgery around about now IIRC. So I would think he's either laying low or on the block. Maybe totally wrong but he's a sound chap and wouldnt ...

Re: Xflow 1100/1300

No problem. It was a good little conversion, but with so many conversions the exhaust was the achilies heel, kept blowing!! The truck was a tad on the heavy side being made up of a ladder chassis on the back (On top of the two door floor pan which the ute was based around!) so maybe not the best pla...

Re: Xflow 1100/1300

Ran a 1600 xflow in my old pick up. Went really well despite being Ford rubbish! ha Heres a few shots. Standard block with a few tweaks, standard four speed box with modified mounts and I think the only gearbox mod was cutting to avoid steering rack. Had to make up some manifold extension plates to ...

Re: One weekend - Two MOT's passed!

Travellers stock and staying that way, splittys the same.
Two modified Saloons enough for me!!

Might be hauling the Traveller out of storage to crack on with it soon. Been off the road 5 years, needs floor pans, chassis leg, wing, door, re-varnish and some paint. Should keep me busy till the autum!

Undersides absolutely immaculate, even the chassis legs are totally straight and untouched. :o Will get some more shots up. Cant beleive its standard - looks too good t...

Factory underside finish from back in the day.

Having a poke round my splitty and have peeled away large areas of bitumen undercoating as its loose in places and going to start causing more issues in the near future! Does anyone know what the standard was for minors leaving Cowely? Heres what mine looks like. http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k2...

So my question, do you still have the original sidevalve engines?

No boat anchors, sorry, side valves in sight!

Re: 1956 Minor stock running gear.

Cheers guys.

Whats the magic stick wand like behind a 948cc then?

Im instantly thinking it wont be quite right, ratiowise, speed wise and living with for a daily commute 20 miles will I be regretting sticking with it??

Loved the travellers setup with stock 948 gear, hoping for the same.
