    P I parts

    Hi. Does anyone know what these might be worth? They came with a car that I restored that had been converted to carbs. They are listed as NLA so I've no idea how much to ask for them if I put them on e-bay. I've blasted primed and painted the air filter although it comes without an actual filter. Regards Dex
  4. Thanks for the replies gentlemen, I like the Huco pump that Hamish mentioned because of the fact that it doesn't need a pressure reducer. Thanks Stuart for the good point on the inertia switch, I'll definitely be doing that. Thanks again to everyone Dex
  5. I want to change from the mechanical fuel pump to electric as I've had trouble with several mechanical ones over a period of time. My question is which type is the best to go for considering that I want to mount it in the engine bay around the bulkhead area. The two main types seem to be either S U or Facet but their are various types of each so I was wondering if anyone has done this mod and if so which pump is recommended. Thanks in anticipation Dex
  6. Hi Mark. If my memory serves me right it was a solid bar type. Dex
  7. Hi Mark I broke down on the M62 a couple of years ago. I called the RAC and they turned up within 20 minutes. The guy removed the front spoiler towed me to a service station, fixed the problem, refitted the spoiler and sent me on my way. Excellent service on all accounts.

    Brake Disc Problem

    Hi John. To be honest I haven't bedded the pads in as per manufacturers instructions but it seems as if this is something I must try, so as soon as the weather improves (not enough room in garage) I try everything you suggest ..Thanks Dex

    Brake Disc Problem

    Hi Steve I did have EBC Green Stuff in initially but I've heard they need to get warm before giving maximum braking and with the braking only being on the outside edge I didn't want to drive in such a manner to get them heated up Dex

    Brake Disc Problem

    Hi Jochem The pads are standard pads from Moss they were in a box marked Classic Gold and I bought the discs some time ago at one of the internationals but I can't remember the make although they were from a reputable supplier. I took the pads out but it was very difficult to detect any wear at this stage so I think I'll do a few more miles and as suggested by Mike C try some heavier braking.

    Brake Disc Problem

    Hi Nigel Yes I've driven 30miles so far and also checked the hub bearings so will probably give them a few more miles of careful stopping so as not to have any embarrassing moments as Neil suggested. Dex
  14. Hello. I have just recently finished a complete restoration of my 1973 TR6 where pretty much everything has been refurbished or renewed. The problem I have is that the pads only seem to be acting on the outside edge of the disc. They are new pads operated by new callipers on new discs. I know from the manuals that the callipers should have shims fitted on an "as required" basis to centralise the calliper about the disc but since it seems central anyway there are no shims fitted. I'm wondering if this is the problem. This is occurring on both sides. Hopefully the photos show what is happe
