  1. Have you tried gently pressing on throttle spindle to see if this has any effect? Alan.
  2. I had a similar problem and like yourself changed the worn looking spindles and the butterflies without success. I found that a very light finger press on one of the spindles reduced the tick over although I could not feel any play. So I fitted an oversize spindle. This has completely cured the problem so it would appear you only need a small amount of wear of the spindle bores to effect the tick over. Alan.
  3. These may help. No special tools required. TRTrans02.pdfTRTrans01.pdf Alan.
  4. It's Falcon. Just checked my spare exhaust. Alan.
  5. A hybrid main shaft if you're using a J type o/d. Alan.
  6. I thought that heat from the block may have a detrimental effect on the coil and therefore best to have the spare on the inner wing. Alan.
  7. I've used them twice now. No problems and fast turnaround. Alan.
  8. I want to fit oversize spindles to my SU's but can't find a reasonably priced reamer. Does anyone know where I might get one. Thanks Alan.
  9. Just watched How to Build British: Aston Martin. Most of the DBS is glued together. Probably not your ordinary Bostick though. Alan.
  10. I got some from B&Q last week. No problem. Alan.
  11. Don't forget access hole for upper starter motor bolt. Alan.
  12. Just fitted the K&N filter. The engine no longer clatters on start up as oil pressure builds as was the case with the cheaper filters I used to use. Well worth the small extra cost. Alan.
  13. Remember seeing a Vulcan crash here in East Yorkshire back in the 50's. It was miles away. Think it was electrical problems. All the crew got out I believe. Weren't the systems electrical rather than hydraulic? Then saw the last flight from the Humber bridge that was just an overfly. Later after I had got home I saw it doing a display, in the far distance, over Breighton airfield for a photo shoot. Wish I had been there but it was not advertised because of possible crowd problems. Alan.
  14. TUI cruise booked for 16th April. To be fully refunded. Alan.
  15. If somebody hasn't mentioned it already, use a guide coat between each flatting down. Alan.
