    New wiring loom

    Thanks folks. I got just the answers I was hoping for. Seems that Autosparks is the best supplier. Great to have it custom made. Have a nice summer. Cheers Svein Otto Aanonsen Norway

    New wiring loom

    Hello friends. Need to replace my old melted wiring. The car is a ex US 74'. Should i go for standard ( TR-shop, Rimmer, Moss, Autosparks ) or a more uprated system from Advance Auto Wire? Cheers SO

    Timing problem.

    Went over everything again, valve clearance,static timing, plugs and all the rest and it fired up. It idles ok at 1000 rpm. When I get my new interior back in, I will take it for a spin. The Optronic system is probably my main problem. Might have been bad earth and bad contact.

    This is the first startup after assembling

    Timing problem.

    Everything is according to the book. I suspect that the timing gears are not correctly set up.

    Timing problem.

    It is a new standard cam from Rimmers. I will try to check the dynamic timing tomorrow. It runs rough with a knocking noise.

    I ment if the cam timing wasn't correct,

    Timing problem.

    Been done. Didn't help much. Still runs rough an noisy. Will the engine start if cam timing isn't done correct? It's not many to ask here in Norway who are good at these engines. Still slightly optimistic ;-) Cheers Svein Otto

    Timing problem.

    Hi. That can be the solution for me as well. According to the installation instructions and illustration in section 12.41.05 sheet 8 in the Brown bible this isn't right. I use to follow instructions carefully to get things right, so I must perhaps be bit more flexible attitude to it when it comes to old British cars. Cheers SO

    Timing problem.

    That is where it used to be before rebuilding. Number 5 is in that position now and nr.1 is at nine o'clock.

    Timing problem.

    Hi. Finally got my rebuilt engine back in the car. The machine shop did the assembly and I did the rest. Everything has been done according to the "Brown Bible" but it did not start. The dizzy was set up to point at cylinder 1 at TDC Tried out everything and finally I tried to move the ignition leads one step clockwise and the car started right away. Can it be that the cam timing isn't correct or would it be impossible to start. It's a standard US engine with twin SU and Lumenition Optronic. This is a bit strange or am I way out? it doesn't run smoothly. Thanks. SO
  13. Hi. I used the Rick Patton jig with Time Sert inserts. The job was really easy with the right tools. The tricky bit is to drill the hole straight, and with the Patton jig this wasn't an issue. Keen Sert can also be used. http://www.pattonmachine.com/TA-Jig-Setup.htm Good luck! Cheers Svein Otto
