    Pi fouling

    Just another update Went for a decent 100k blast in a lovely cold sunny weather, what a joy,smoth and vigorous driving, no issues, now back to curfew Phill , oil pressure in the 20s at 15k 40s in the 30k and consumption 1,5 every 2k so not bad, if another lockdown a new set of pistons is on the bucket list, any advice for a standard set supplier is welcome. Steve Still saiiling but with masks... not a great idea but as soon away is free Keep in touch

    Pi fouling

    Just a update, it was the return spring on the mu...not on top end return, and then, 6 litle pigs foulling Fear of Covid related stress sindrome Problem solved
  3. Love this forum form me the best audiofile solution is to fix a boom bluetoth box over the ash tray, the windscreen reflects the sound without much interference from the six lovely blurr and wind, and keep the original radio and droopof kidneys

    Pi fouling

    After a long stayaway covid during wich I had the time to tackle some long due jobs I now have a similar issue with my Pi, and today spend more than a hour fine tuning the butterflies and still fouling, see picture attach! check list: Late february, car runs ok, allways with some fouling but accepted as a normal pi issue Tackle jobs none related to engine or fuel system during lockdown Starts at first turn after 3 months, but after short run plugs fouling (all similar oily) Ok, renew points and condenser from Dr, change coil from sports coil to backup normal coil
  7. The ashtray comes with a jig that must be in place and bend the metal strips so that the ashtray sticks in. It can be hard to set right if the foam is too thick, the case of repro top dashtops
  8. Thankyou whise gents I ll leave the gap as it came I do have a sports coil
  9. Maybe a dum question, but should I set the gap acording to bb when using a iridium tip sparkplug?
  10. Thankyou I'll take the midle pair as master,, looks to be consensual and folow the notes for idle setting, air screw and minimum screw Take the path this weekend, still have to buy the abestos gloves it really gets hot..
  11. Hi John I have a air bleed (bb says turn 5 times before setting) Nylon bushes new Linkages renewed Have a flow meter Wich steps to folow BB or green book?
  12. Dear forum Need some advice on the best way to set up AFR . Brown book section19.20.05 states that we should use pair 5/6 as reference airflow and set pairs 3/4 2/1 to the same flow rate. Green book from service and training, states otherwise, use central pair 3/4 as master then set the other pairs Wich way is the best? It makes sense use center pair? Never got a good spark colour using bb instructions Thankyou all
