Hi my handsome friends An old chestnut i no, my apoligies, I am running webers, wild cam ligtened fly wheel, (fast road engine) Car runs well over 2, 000 rpm, in traffic below 2000rpm the plugs start to foul up, resulting in banging missing etc, they clear when I get going, Dificult on the iow short journeys, I use the gear box to keep the revs up to prevent fouling, is there a plug that would help with this I am running ngk 7 presently thank you Pink

    Door stays

    I baught new door stays as I noticed one of the tangs had broken, what a night mare, no problem fitting them , however they were like butter, just bent when the tang hit the lift/lock bar, the tang filled really easily, so the conclusion is that they have had no heat treatment, The originalls had stanpart stamped on them, I put the broken one on the passenger door and the passenger door on the drivers side I recon I could re-rivet them if any one has old ones that has broken I would like to buy them please Pink
  13. Old chestnut this one, I love silicone brake fluid, been in there 6 years, never touched it, however when I fitted it i did a really good clean of internal pipes, replacment of rubbers etc I believe dot 1, 2 or 3 are like a thread release capillary action draws it down the thread , no leaks on your system come back, in 2 weeks oil leaking, paint destroyed, sick feeling in the belly Pink x
  14. A big thank you Peter, As suggested, I wired it up, everything worked but the switch was upside down, reversed the wires Every thing was in order Thanks again for the info Pink
