  1. Hi Heinrich/Graeme, I am now using 6 butterflies. I was concerned about the rubber connectors but your method certainly looks efficient. I changed back to 6 individual butterflies for better running. I now have instant acceleration and the engine is definitely more brisk. Interestingly, I had to re-tune my VE (Volumetric Efficiency) table as more air was allowed in... this is obviously more efficient than using a single butterfly with the plenum. I also fitted K&N filters to each throttle body and love the sound these make, very much like Weber carbs. I also made an overhead throttle linkage which makes it easier to tune my butterflies. Cheers Tony
  2. I don't bother with Google any more.....I just ask my wife as she seems to know it all........ Tony
  3. Thanks Graeme, I checked that out when I looked at Clarkeys link...amazing how Brum has changed. Cheers Tony
  4. Thanks Clarkey, how about someone making a clip around Brum...would love to see how it has changed. Cheers Tony
  5. Had a visit from Tim Hunt and his lovely wife Sue, great to meet them. We went for a spin in my 6 (1st video), and Tim had a drive in the second. Kudos to Tim, he was used to a TR4 gearbox and had a challenge going to reverse but soon got that sorted. Will definitely stay in touch Tim. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9ghe-y_01I https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4h0trV2rQG4
  6. Nothing wrong with roller rockers, they will give a performance benefit but only if the head has been gas flowed and you have a performance exhaust system. Tony
  7. Roger, I spent 3 days trying all sorts of adjustments...yes, I tried everything even elongating holes also moving the window channels to the point I had to remake them. I then made a template of the window from plywood (with smooth edges), and had them made. They fit perfectly and this would have saved me wasting 3 days. If there was a way of making the rake of the windscreen more adjustable it would have helped enormously. Cheers Tony
  8. Good luck with the doors and windows Roger, I ended up having new windows made to fit and they do fit a treat. Cheers Tony
  9. Hi Nigel, To save you having to search through that thread, the fronts springs are the shorter ones. Cheers Tony
  10. Innovate LC-2 is the way to go. I fitted my UEGO sensor vertically under the starter motor...works fine. Cheers Tony
  11. Actually Roger, you could edit them but unfortunately, you can't edit the heading which would make more sense. Cheers Tony
  12. Mine is done the same, I also used large washers (2") on the inside of the boot. Have had no problems whatsoever. Cheers Tony
  13. You are correct, they are bolts as I just checked my original. Tony
