    Hi. Just checked in dizzy. The module was all good, but the advance rod had managed to unhook itself from the plate. Been for test run and all fine and dandy again. Thanks for the heads up Paul. Had no issues with this set up till now. will see how it goes. Cheers again till next time Nick

    Rough running

    Hi all. My Mk2 Vitesse has suddenly started to misfire at around 2-3k revs when under load. when ticking over it sounds fine. Its now running Accuspark dizzy,coil and leads with new plugs. has been running really well up to last week.Timing seems spot on, ive now changed the diaphrams in both stroms. pulling the choke out seemed to make it worse and stalled it. It does seem to feel like a fuel issue. Any info or ideas will be appreciated. Bit of a pain as i use her everyday for work. Cheers Nick
  4. Hi all. Does anyone know if these are still available for a Mk2 Vitesse. Is there anywhere to get reconditioned ones. Think the pins on the shoes are pulling through the holes. Cheers Nick
  5. Hi Pete. The flange was ok. I had a look at it as they were doing the work. Didn't know they'd done it like this till I got it back. Just thought it strange. They're not the sharpest tools in the box! I'm afraid. I'm a precision engineer by trade so a bit picky sometimes. Gonna see what they say tomorrow. Cheers for info guys. Nick
  6. Thought it looked wrong. They've ground the uprights off. Guess I'll have to paint that edge then!. Cheers Nick
  7. Hopefully there should be some photos. I thought the outer sill was called a cover sill. I may be wrong. Cheers Nick
  8. Hi Pete. I'll have a go tomorrow. Cheers Nick
  9. Hi all. My vitesse convertible has just had the bodywork restored and they have put the cover sill on the outside,which looks wrong as any water would go between the surfaces rather than run out. Do the cover sill go on the inside or the outside of the inner sill?. Any info would be appreciated.Cheers Nick
  10. Sorry please ignore the first part.it seems to have copied and pasted an old post
  11. Hi all. I,very git a new extending aerial that fit in the back wing into boot as was there b4. The problem is it's about 2 inches longer than the 1 that came out and hits the inner wheel arch. Dies anyone know where I can get a shorter aerial. Cheers Nick
  12. Hi all. I'm refitting the rear seat into my vitesse convertible. I've put the side panels and back in. Does the seat have to push back so it goes over the front edge lip,where the carpet is. It's in but sitting about an inch forward of the lip. Do I need to put the bottom in first and the push the back part down. All seems a bit tight in there. Cheers Nick
  13. Hi again Paul. Just seen your vitesse on another post. Looks nice. Your tyres look big in the wheel wells. Do you have any problem with rubbing either on the inside or outside of the tyre. Mine tends to rub on the drivers side when turning left. I mostly drive alone and am 15st ish. Any info would be interesting. Cheers Nick
  14. Hi Paul. Cheers for that. I thought so. I've had other old cars and that's how they were. Just needed to be sure. Brute force it is then 😊. Cheers Nick
