Re: Whining sort of noise....?

To answers Tom's questions it probably is more of a drone as Paul suggested rather tha a fluctuating noise, and appears probably att around 45-50 Ish as a start? I'd also say it gets louder the faster it goes... How difficult are half shafts to change and I can consider changing it to see if it work...

Re: Whining sort of noise....?

What's the giveaway with wheel bearings? I don't think I've ever changed any of them but happy to do so if it's just a case of taking the old ones out, slapping them a shitload if grease and putting the new ones in?

Cheers
Danny

Whining sort of noise....?

This is quite a weird one/hard one to describe but recently in the laser there appears to be a much louder 'road noise' type of sound coming from the rear passenger-side-area It isn't a crunchy noise, and I'm almost reluctant to call it a whine, sort of more along the lines of a low hum... Almost li...

Re: Big hesitation.

As Peter pointed out, it may have something to with my impeccable air filter... 👀 Cheers A cool wash and gentle spin and it will be fine 😄 I've just ordered a new one so will see if that fixes the misfiring... As someone wisely mentioned - if no fuel can get to the engine it won't run right!! 😂

Re: Big hesitation.

Pretty sure we changed that one too Hamish... Acceleratr pump diaphragm on the driver's side and awkward to get at, vacuum diaphragm on the other side that was much easier to get at and both were changed

Solved the wanting to stall aspect of it, just need to get it running right now!

Re: Big hesitation.

With Peters help on Saturday we took the head off the carb, the Y was taken out and blown through (the scree holding it in was very loose!), And the diaphragms on both side were changed and it does run much better :D It no longer tries to stall itself when coming off the throttle, but when you plant...

Re: Type 9 (N) gearbox lock up

I'm probably not much help because when my gearbox broke I just bought a new one If it helps though I think I still have that old gearbox in someone's shed if you want it? Was a 5speed manual from a Laser, in my youth I thought it would be a good idea to try and beat a great of GTi of the line and s...

Re: Big hesitation.

you can see the first side squirt fuel and then if you keep going the second jet starts squirting too Are you saying that if you keep opening and closing the throttle then eventually the second jet starts to squirt as well? The only point they split is at the base of the 'Y'. There is just a single...

Re: Big hesitation.

I think the rich fuel smell is the giveaway here. Too much fuel getting into the carb so when you accelerate and it adds even more then its moving the mixture outside of a combustible range. However, if the above answers don't cure it then this is also a classic symptom of a failing accelerator pum...

Re: The Queen RIP

I guess all of the above would make our John a bit of a hypocrite, however I agree with what he said in that article whether it makes him a hypocrite or not, I think we should be given a choice on the future of the monarchy and that's just my view on it which I feel entitled too, after all I do hel...

Re: Energy prices

My olds have had a few log burners and they can be quite spangly - like Hamish their old one used to heat all the water for the house sp was quite handy in that respect. Current one just looks nice and warms the one room you're in, not so great at actually heating the rest of the house though. Also ...

I can personally vouch that there is likely a whole other Capri in there :lol:
