    Oil spray

    Thanks Stuart, I will have a close look next week. I am thinking that if I run the car up to warm I might be able to locate the leak more easily. I see what you mean John and I guess that your slighlty tongue in cheek observation might be correct! Ernest

    Oil spray

    Thanks Ray aand Stuart It looks like I need to take a close look at all oil-related joints (it does have a oil-cooler Ray) and see if i can idetify the cause - now, thanks to Stuart, I can identify the position of the 'flame-trap' this does look like a possible contender as the underside of the bonnet was liberally sprayed with oil.

    Oil spray

    Hi Just back from a lovely 30 mile blast through countryside of North Kent. The 6 went really well! But.....when home I lifted the bonnt to find that oil had been sprayed over much of the underboont area. It was on both sides of the engine bay and I am thinking that if an head gasket it would more lile be only on one side. So I am assuming that any leak is coming from the crank-case. Any ideas/sugstions would be welome. If crank-case does this involve a lot ofwork? I checked the sump oil level and this indicates level still high. Best Wishes Ernest

    P.I. injectors

    Thanks Gareth This looks to be a useful do-it-yourself check, even for someone such as myself with poor mechanical knowledge Ernest

    P.I. injectors

    Thank Gareth The garage is a well respected engine tuning company with quite a bit of racing success behind them. The car ran really well on the 20 odd mile drive home through London traffic. So far, so good. I was pleased that you had a different experience with HMI injectors. I was told that they had no problems with changing the duff ones. Ernest
  9. Hi all Just a note to pass on recent experience with having new (I think reconditioned) injectors fitted. Out of 8 initially tried only 6 were any good. These were supplied by a company named HMI and the garage who fitted them for me said they did not know of any other suppliers. I thought that this information might be useful for others. Ernest

    PI injectors

    I do have some confidence in the tuning company - the are involved in preparing racecars and other types of quite specialist tuning. But I will take on board comment by Stuart and Mike so thanks for this. Ernest

    PI injectors

    Hi In order to overcome a lumpy running problem I took the car to a specialist tuning company. They diagnosed problems with a couple of P.I injectors and so they fitted 6 news one, but then found one of these to be faulty so replaced it. The car was fine for about 20 miles than the lumpy running returned as before the work. I, and the garage, are assuming that one or two of the new injectors are faulty. But are injectors as unreliable as this? Can anyone recommend a quality injector supplier? Best Wishes Ernest

    Lumpy running

    Just a note to follow-up with the conclusion of my 'lumpy running'. It was two injectors not working as they should. Sanspeed of Bexleyheath sorted the problem (replacing all six injectors) car now runs as it should! I would recommend Sandspeed - they were originally recommended to me by a Kent club member and I have used them in that past to sort tuning problems with the 6, and a 4A and a Cooper S. Ernest
