    Exhaust GT6 mk3

    I think it's the other way around - Mk 1 had a centre silencer, Mk 2 didn't, but Mk 3 did - going by the parts books. My Mk 3 has the semi sports back box without the centre silencer - I like the sound and resonates nicely around 2,700-2,900 rpm. Gully
  2. Is there something you're not telling us, Pete & Doug?! 🤣 Gully
  3. My GT6 passed its MOT this morning with no advisories. The tester was telling me about a GT6 project nearing completion that he'd examined recently - may have been yours, Chris? Gully
  4. When I fitted my Moto-Lita steering wheen and boss, I used their horn pencil: Gully

    SU fuel pump

    I successfully mated the top half of a new metal-top pump (new, as in I bought it 7 years ago) onto the lower half of my old glass-top AC Delco one at the weekend - dimensions where they meet are identical and no problems at all with leaks or fuel pressure. I'd surmised they should be compatible as the diaphragms are the same. Gully
  6. If buying a used AC Delco glass-top pump, just be wary of the condition of the two valves. Changing / replacing them is not straightforward, unless you luck into one of the few with the screw in retention plate. Gully
  7. Just a thought. When you make the same adjustment to the LHS side of the car, lowering that side down by an equivalent amount should also reduce the apparent positive camber on the RHS? Assuming you're measuring only the wheel against the vertical? Gully
  8. Or simply pull on the handbrake when driving to see if the vibration is there and of a similar frequency. Gully
  9. The push looks very much like the one supplied with my Motolita boss. The boss should have a hole through it to allow the sprung-loaded connector to contact the slip ring described by NM above. Motolita actually supplied 2 with my boss. The wire from this connects to the horn push. The other contact is the spring you can see which holds the push unit in place and contacts the boss. When you press the horn, the slip ring is connected to the column via the boss (and column earths) to complete the circuit. Gully
  10. An excellent day! I'd like to thank everyone for turning up across the 3 hours as it made my job on the gate much easier than when big convoys land at once! 🤣 There are a few advantages of arriving early and leaving late... Gully
  11. Can't abide football. While it was on last night I watched the World Superbikes from Donington (which I'd recorded earlier in the week). The Turkish rider who won two of the races made more sense in his slightly broken English than most football pundits every do. Gully
  12. Would it make that much difference? There are already 4 flexy hoses connecting the brake lines to the calipers and slave cylinders? Gully
  13. According to the Courier mag, the Club Shop is still posting to Europe - last time I looked they supplied Penrite and Castrol Classic. Gully
  14. I've always run NGK BP6ES in my GT6. Not tried the multi-electrode plugs yet. I did try Champion N9Y, but found the car didn't enjoy running on choke with them. Gully
  15. Fair enough - was looking for a solution to an odd problem, but looks like the issue should be solved using the smaller Canley nut, with the problem being caused by the original nut (and washer) being oversize. The Spalding site does recommend talking to them about performance requirements and specifications before ordering, which is sound advice and a good service. Gully
  16. They do thin form nuts which may be appropriate. Gully
  17. The other clanger to avoid is positioning your door mirror so you can't fully open the quarterlight! I must sit taller than the PO who fitted them and the additional tilt back on the mirror means the driver's quarterlight fouls it. Passenger side is mounted in dimensionally the same position on the door, but the quarterlight clears it. Gully
  18. Before I changed to CV shafts on my GT6 I bought a spare nyloc just in case I needed it after a job I was planning to do. It came from either Canley or Paddocks and was a much deeper nut than the original. If I'd used it, I don't believe the nylon section would have engaged with the thread sufficiently to lock it, which sounds as if it could be the issue you are encountering. My CV shafts with the original bearing design use a shaped nut that is peened into a channel to achieve locking. Gully
  19. I have one of those too - bought via Chic Doig's eBay shop around 5 years ago. Gully
  20. The specs look right to me, including the viscosity. Gully
  21. Given that the Spitfire in the same sale went for £19k plus premium, I'm not sure that's true! 😄 Gully
  22. Welcome back! Fingers crossed a few shows happen this year - seems there's an awful lot cancelled already. Gully
