Re: Twin 45s Dhla and dipstick

The tube that the dipstick sits in is only a press fit into the cylinder block. Using some grips at the bottom of the tube you should be able to twist it until it is out of the way. By the way I love your user name. Have you got big teeth and a red arse? :lol: :lol: :lol: Lol I was stumped for a us...

Twin 45s Dhla and dipstick

Found a fault, there's no clearance for the oil dipstick tube with the 45s in the way, with the dipdtick fitted carbs won't even go on the head.

What's the solution lol

Re: Kent cam

I'm buy no means an expert but agree that the GTS6 is massively overkill - with a powerband of 4-8k revs you'll never see the benefit and will just be useless. The FR33 looks like it has higher specs than the Piper but again a power band of 3-7k is quite high when the reality is that driving around...

Re: Kent cam

So go for the fr33 and get a good taste of excess without ..........does your wife/girlfriend have to be able to drive this rocket? 😁.

Re: Colour code??

I agree with the others, the colour is almost certainly diamond white. You could remove your VIN plate, the embossed characters could be much easier to read from the reverse side. The poor colour match of the aerosol could be attributable to the car being painted in the past and may not have been a...

Re: Colour code??

...the only thing i can make out in the color box is 3. Hi, "3" is on first or second position? There should be two digits or letters. Could you post here photo of "color box" from VIN plate?

Think it might be Diamond White.

Do you have a sticker like this on the boot floor passenger side of spare wheel?

Going to give the radiator a clean out. Any idea roughly how much coolant I'll need for 50:50 water ratio?
