  1. Chris Witor sells Superflex polyurethane engine mounts £27.50 each. Will probably never need changing again!
  2. The overflow/vent pipes were originally a long plastic pipe connected with a rubber hose to the float chamber top. The idea was to vent the petrol fumes to road level. I think as Pete says the top of the float is slightly worn, this is causing the problem. Mine were worn but the only way I could see it was to take a photo and enlarge it on the computer!! There was a noticeable ridge. All the best
  3. I had a solid prop on my 1360 estate for years, never had a problem.
  4. Jeremy There is an alloy sealing block under the timing chain cover. The bottom timing chain screws/bolts and two sump bolts go into it. As it's alloy and 40 years old the threads can strip. If bolts or screws won't tighten the threads are stripped and will leak oil. Steel replacements are available from the club shop. Not too bad of a job to replace, I have had to do both my spitfire and 2500 recently. Cured the leak in that area. If the sump bolts at the front won't tighten that's the problem hope this helps
  5. Did 560 miles, went round the clock too on M48 in Wales
  6. Hi Pete, yes the head has been skimmed, probably twice. The garage where I brought the petrol seem quite busy so probably not stale fuel
  7. I have used a synchrometer with great success, great product!! https://www.amazon.co.uk/STE-Synchrometer-Weber-Dellorto-SYN001/dp/B00DHGX2D6/ref=pd_vtp_1?pd_rd_w=wU3zj&pf_rd_p=75613b4d-6e08-4583-9b7e-f6e766dc0b40&pf_rd_r=N34B559HGK28SJ2N4JZB&pd_rd_r=5f5637ed-dab9-4f4c-a011-6e745c3a6d9b&pd_rd_wg=O1qQa&pd_rd_i=B00DHGX2D6&psc=1
  8. I occasionally had this problem, I fiitted SU stay up floats with metal adjustable arms. Never had a problem since. Fitted to both of my car's.
  9. Sorry posted this twice!! Don't know CR but head has been skimmed, also Chris Witor up rated cam fitted
  10. Nice to hear from you Nigel! I thought it can't be the petrol, I changed the condensor and rotar arm but made no difference. Then filled up with super and all was good!!
  11. Hi all I half filled my 2500 saloon with standard Texaco unleaded, as that was all that was available. Car misfired terrible, really thought something was wrong. I do normally use super unleaded I then filled up when I had the chance with BP ultimate 97, misfire disappeared almost immediately!! Car ran far better. A bit stressful, as on a week's holiday away from home!! Anyone else had this? Motto of this story, avoid Texaco unleaded!!!

  13. Going on holiday in our 2500 saloon. 108 miles from home to Forest of Dean, plus travelling in the week. Should cover around 400 to 500 miles in the week.
  14. I have a Chris Witor system, excellent fit. Probably worth waiting for.
  15. I would rebuild the M/C especially as it looks a bit dodgy. A simple inexpensive job
