  1. Is this a Pi or on Carbs?

    Thanks Stuart for all this information, greatly appreciate as always. Cheers.
  3. You can measure the height quite safety with the engine running. All you are doing is removing the jet cover and extracting one of the main jets. As the main jet is not being used at idle this has no effect on the engine idling. You can then measure the distance from the top of the hole for the main jet to the petrol surface with a micrometer and a torch. Should be 25mm +/- 1mm, however mine run best around 28mm. If your running an electric fuel pump you can just remove a main jet from the three carbs, turn on the ignition so the pump tops up the fuel, then switch of the ignition and measur
  4. Nothing to do with the OD, however as the gearbox was recently overhauled some questions may need to be asked and answered.
  5. I’ve managed 38mpg at a steady 60 mph in 28% OD, however I’ve also been in the teens.

    Timing

    Don’t rely on the pulley marking being accurate. Over the years the rubber annulus deteriorates. Worth checking TDC does match the pulley mark.

    Heater valve

    I got one directly from rockauto, didn’t take long to arrive. So much smoother to use,great improvement I used a 60amp stripped block like these to connect the operating cable https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/311744812285

    Timing

    11 degrees strobe at 800 rpm then up to 36 degrees at 5500 rpm
  10. Yes, looks like a juvenile Goldfinch
  11. I’ve used these after Stuarts recommendations a while back. Excellent product, warm them up slightly makes them even easier to apply.
  12. Let the discussion begin.

    Carpets

    I’ll second that, Tr Shop carpets are a good quality for the price. I would also suggest you consider what your putting under the carpet.
  14. Some good news. Excellent !! Best Regards Cameron
  15. Still waiting. As it happens I don’t mind waiting a little longer. Cameron
  16. Interesting article. I’m I right in saying I remember one of these cars being at an international in the mid 70s. Cameron.
  17. If I remember correctly this is a US spec car you have and you were intending upgrading the engine. What have you done, or what are you intending to do. Efi is certainly a consideration, if your happy with that sort of approach, however personally for me if it’s not Pi then carbs would be my choice. If you have no previous experience with Weber’s then it’s important to appreciate what your taking on.I’ve been using them since the mid 70s, firstly on a Lotus Cortina then on my Tr6 and I’m still learning. I would say only go this route if your prepared to take on the extra learning and enjoy
