  1. Thanks for all the replies. The flange is secure, so perhaps the shaft surface is not great. By the sounds of it a double lipped seal wont really improve the situation if they are designed to keep 2 fluids apart which now I think about it makes perfect sense, the seal will work from either outer face. I was also thinking about the fact that the seals seem narrow and that there could be room for 2 (luckily I ordered spares). With the new seal having a bit of leeway I tried to fit it in a slightly different position to the last one so it was running on a new point on the shaft. I cleaned the shaft up with emery for a nice smooth surface but perhaps, in hindsight the original position was better. I will strip it again and see what I can do. It may be that a speedisleeve is the way to go. Thanks again for the replies. I will update you in a week or so when I have time to look into it again.
  2. I tried a few different curves but found that the figures Jochems quotes above really suit my car. It feels responsive and perky. I think it might be giving slightly less MPG, but that isn't based on anything scientific and is negligible. I am happy with the set up and if any slight improvements could be made it would have to be on a rolling road, but I don't feel the need to tweak it any further.
  3. I am looking for double lipped oil seals for the diff output shafts. I recently replaced leaky seals with new ones but they still leak, so I am hoping that double lip seals might reduce or even stop the leak. I have been trying to source them in the UK but so far I have had no luck. I am awaiting an email back from Eriks, but otherwise I have drawn a blank. I can find the in America but the postage is expensive and could take a while to arrive. I wanted to sort it asap while the car is still up in the air. Can anyone advise where I might be able to get 1"5/8 x 2"1/8 x 1/4" seals, preferably R22 type (double lip, double sprung). Many thanks
  4. Yes, I noticed that. It took a while to get the hang of the app but I am finding my way around now. If you wouldn't mind, could you have a look at the vacuum or MAP curve while you are connected, it would be appreciated. I put in a new advance curve with Jochems figures today and it seems to be pulling well now but if I have another set of figures I would like to compare and see which suits best. Thanks again.
  5. Steve, If you could dig out your curve it might be a help. I will be trying the figures Jochems posted above but if I have another one to test it would be good. Richard, Yes the info you can see on the app is good and I also like the fact you can use the app to immobilise the car which is a useful feature.
  6. Stan, I am just getting to grips with the app that controls the timing. I will try to have a better look tomorrow. It seems you can programme a curve with the ignition on but the engine not running. You can then fine tune while on a test drive with a tune up/tune down button. I am going to set the curve as Jochems recommended and try that. After fitting the new 123 distributor I set it close to what was in the Haynes manual but it felt a little less perky than before in certain parts of the rev range. I used the tune up and down buttons but thought I would try a different curve then fine tune it from there. This is all subject to a bit of guesswork as I am not 100% sure of the cam profile etc. Also, I am sure the old distributor was far from perfect, so adjustments will have been made over the years, not to mention the difference in fuel compared to when the original curve was published. I will be tweaking for a while to come.
  7. Mine is the bluetooth version so you can add in your own curve and tweak it as you go. I wondered about the one with the 16 pre-settings but liked the idea of being able to make adjustments.
  8. Thanks Jochems, This sounds good. I will try this tomorrow and will report back when I have had a test run. Merry Christmas and thanks again.
  9. Hello all, I wonder if you could´╗┐ help me out? I have a 1971 TVR Vixen fitted with the Triumph TR6 Engine, in what I think would have been US spec. It has had the original carbs replaced with two SU HS6 and was fitted with an uprated cam a number of years ago. In the engine rebuild invoices it states Triumph 6 Cyl sports "R" cam kit. Having an uneducated guess I think it is could be a Kent TH5-6 (fast road). I was having intermittent ignition problems so I decided to fit a 123 ignition kit and wondered if anyone has any experience or could help with a suitable curve for me to apply. Many thanks in advance
