  1. Thanks for your replies and pics everyone. I think I will keep to my original route but wrap the pipe in some form of insulation. Simon
  2. After finding some deteriorating rubber petrol hose in the engine bay, I have decided to convert as much as possible to copper. Just wondered how others route there pipes in the engine bay. My hose currently comes up from near the oil filter, over and above the back of the battery and round towards the webers. It also has a pressure regulator next to the battery. Simon
  3. When fitting my Racetorations tubular manifold 20 odd years ago I was hoping the starter motor was going to be reliable and trouble free. Well it has been until now. Unfortunately, it means the manfolds and carbs(webers) all have to be removed to access the starter , not a quick job. I am considering going back to a standard manifold with single exhaust. Has anyone got a twin pipe manifold for sale?. Any recommendations for standard starter motor repair or purchase? Simon
  4. Hi Stuart Is this kit all you need to start fine tuning webers? Perhaps with a laptop? Simon
  5. When I refurbed my cables I covered them in heat shrink tube and lubricated them . I think i just filled them with oil/grease. No probs with them for nearly 20 years! Simon
  6. This morning took the 6 for a check over by my local garage as the mot would be now due (but exempt). It would have failed an mot. An inner bolt was missing holding the lower plate onto the wishbone on both sides! While not critical it does make me wonder if I would have picked this up later before something showed itself in the running of the car . Check all your bolts. Simon
  7. Hi Andrew Its a Laverda 3cl Jarama. Not commonly heard of. It was mainly a US export. I must get the correct decal fitted on the side panel to identify the model. Farnham just down the road from me , I live near Hook. Simon
  8. It seems quite a few of us have bikes and TR's. here is mine, renovated 4 years now . Simon
  9. After investigating knocks from the diff it appears that one of my diff mounting bushes has perished. It is the front upper bush just above the single exhaust. Whether heat is an issue I am unsure Not sure if its rubber or poly bush. Lower bush is purple coloured. Rear bushes look like rubber Can anyone recommend replacement material and supplier? Heard or read somewhere about noise transmission from polybushes. Wellsy
  10. Also looking at new tyres to replace my 195 NCT's. The 165 Vred. T Tracs2 are around £37 and the Vred. Classic sprints £87. Are the sprints that much of a better tyre for the price than the t tracs? Wellsy

    Soda blasting

    I have had very good results on aluminium carb bodies, motorcyle barrels and casings with soda blasting with my diy kit. Not good ,as already said, on steel and rust. It was bicarbonate soda I used. Wellsy
  12. Looking at the quality of the chassis repairs. Buyer beware.
  13. + 1 for the chain man. Supplied all the chains for my motorcycle and a mine of information on chain quality. Wellsy
  14. John, Made my own from sheets of plastic I obtained from work,. No idea what plastic it is but its flexible and impact resistant . Fixed mine with plastic number plate nut and bolts around the arch, no problem with rust! Sprayed with some sort of stonegaurd. Butted up to wings with the same section of seal as on the baffle plate, works very well . wellsy
