    Vacuum Pipe

    Should you have and do you need this vacuum pipe? I have been running my 4a for 10 years with just plastic pipe running from carburettor to distributor. Mike Redrose Group
  6. Hamish yes we have 89mm liners and pistons with a mild fast road camshaft, are you going to the meeting on Sunday. Mike Redrose Group
  7. All finished I think it looks fantastic hope it runs as well as it looks, it will probably take couple of weeks to fit and test as next week is the school holidays and we have the grandchildren. Mike Redrose group
  8. A few more photos all bottom end finished, working on the cylinder head valves and guides. Mike Redrose group
  9. Morning. Malbaby yes the camshaft bearings have been replaced as new camshaft has been installed, Mick I don’t know as its being built by a engine specialist, I will enquire on Monday when I visit. (They have a open house policy ) I had to supply new bolts as the existing ones had stretched. Mike Redrose group ps just getting ready for a run down to Stoneleigh.

  22. Evening Pete, no you have not missed my posts, I am finding yours most interesting. At the moment I don’t have the time to carry out such a time consuming rebuild. I was losing a lot of oil from the push rod tubes and the catch tank was getting more oil in than usual. Did a pressure test on the cylinders and found that No4 was well down. We were thinking of doing the engine next year but as you know we do a lot of miles and decided to bring it forward. The crankshaft may of found another problem that I have being trying to rectify for a while, the car shakes at 57 / 62mph hopefully we can now get that sorted. Mike and Carole. Redrose group
  23. Afternoon Pete still enjoying you post. I am having my engine rebuilt. The lads put the crankshaft on the balancing machine and said that they could probably only get it 70% balanced. As it had been worked on before not very successfully. I have got another from our local TR specialist (Craig TR Bitz) so that’s on the machine being balanced. Mike. Redrose group
  24. Just going through the calendar for this year. One of the days out is MG & Triumph spares day before I book is there any discount vouchers about thanks. Mike Redrose group
