Bolts Wanted!

Random one I know - I'm after the bolts that hold the flex plate of an auto-box onto the flywheel on the engine

Not sure if they are used anywhere else on the car but they are 16mm heads, if you have some please shout me!

Cheers
Danny

Re: Brooklands 50th Attendance

Also Amsterdam Dan or Dan with 3 is bringing all 3 ( only 10 weeks Dan to get your 3.0 on the road ) You've got more chance of me turning up in a Lamborghini than turning up in that S :lol: Not looked at that in a few weeks to be honest, been caught up trying to get the GL back together instead!

Re: 3.0 Ghia - Problems

The stalling thing is stumping me - if the gearbox fluid is topped up I can only imagine it must be because the air/fuel ratio is off and is either flooding/starving the engine once hot? Below is a picture of the mixture screws - hopefully that will help getting it set correctly. I'd set it once it ...

Re: 3.0 Ghia - Problems

The best thing I had fitted was a points replacement system, I got mine from here as they were local https://simonbbc.com/ ….. I wanted to keep the original points but at the same time I didn't want to bugger about under the bonnet too often so went for the replacement system, at least you know thi...

Re: 3.0 Ghia - Problems

I'd second the idea of the thermostat for the overheating, and I'd check that the coolant is correct and up to level etc. or alternatively check the radiator for damage - a lot of the fins on mine at the edges had gone so had to replace it to keep the heat down Try this method for setting the carb -...

Re: As this is Rant and Rave....

I don't get why it's a big deal apart from the fact he is an MP... If he was a security guard seen escorting the protester(s) out in that fashion it's no big deal, he's doing a job, but as soon as someone else does it's a problem? I think it's just MPs in general in cases like this; if it were me wh...

Re: Laser 1600

I recently sprayed my backplates - left the adjusters in place as I didn't want the faff of trying to make sure I got the angles right again - realistically it won't make much (if any) of a difference as no one will ever see it anyways and will save you a job later down the line making sure they are...

Re: Pinto Exhaust Recommendation?

Hmm. The CCI site says they can be provided with standard rear boxes instead of the Beast ones. Maybe I should think about getting the car running, maybe fix the holes and stuff before buying shiny bits :lol: Though there are a nice set of Starmags on here, and only down the road from me, which wou...

Re: Pinto Exhaust Recommendation?

I always knew, and still do , what 19 x 7 is, no idea why. Anyway, someone posted a like to 'Daisy' with the twin exhaust on a pinto, which has got me thinking of that as a plan. It is a nice system, but I wouldn't say it was quiet - granted not as loud as the 3" exit you have currently but still n...

dB are like the Richter scale - each increase is logarithmic and not a 'standard' increase
