Re: Full oil filtration

I do not understand why BLMC went to the trouble of making the by-pass valve when to all accounts you are better off without it?

Re: Low voltage at fuel pump?

If the pump is working as you say when disconnected from the float chamber but otherwise not then suspect the float needle in the float chamber and that the float itself is working properly. The needle (valve) may be clogged with dirt or broken .....

Re: Low voltage at fuel pump?

The fuel pump has a set of contacts which switch themselves off and on as it pumps. That is the clicking sound you normally hear. Sometimes the points stick. Give the pump a good hit ( do not overdo it) with a spanner or small hammer whilst it is switched on.

Re: Racing fuel pump

Yes I have seen this being posted here on the forum before. Even though the pump seemed to be going mad, the performance of the engine was faultless as ever. ....From tomorrow normal summer temps are foreseen, so the problem (if indeed it is a problem) may not occur again this year. If it does , the...

Racing fuel pump

It is still quite warm at the moment ( 35°) and today in stop -go traffic I could hear the fuel pump racing away at a rate of knots, or perhaps trying to. The performance of the engine did not seem to suffer and it was not overheating. Afterwards on the open road it went back to the normal tick....t...

Re: Hi

The Motor looks to be well cared for and has been modifed it seems in various places - most notably the heater feed and also the unusual routing from the benzin pump. What does the green canister do on the RHS of the picure? Is it an original engine?

Re: Jet head sticking on HS2 Carb

I have lubricated the jet head and started the engine twice now from cold. Cold at the moment being a relative term. Shortly afterwards have stopped the car and checked to see if it has stuck, which happily is not the case. Problem solved I think.

I have always suspected my 1098 Traveller from '69 to be running rich. So I have got hold of a Gunson colortune (pity they have to use american spelling) and connected it up. Sure enough a bright yellow glow indicated a rich mixture so I strarted to screw in the Jet adjusting nut....and in ...and in...

Re: Need to borrow a rear hub nut spanner?

Just for my information in case I have to do the job sometime - is it a spanner or a socket of this size that is needed? I vagely remember in this forum someone fabricated a special tool but perhaps I am confusing with something else.

Re: Driving to Scotland - Any Tips?

It would be nice if you could make some pictures of your journey as you go along for all ( ...me actually) to see. I do like epic adventures over such distances and all the more in what we call here "Old Timer" cars. For you on the island of course the only really long distance is north south direct...
