Great post chief!
This is the most informative post ever on the forum.
Mods, please sticky.
I really couldn't agree more Syncro!
Must agree with your post well done .....another who speaks the language of the aircooled vw....factory is BEST...for all the right reasons.....maybe just maybe a few more will listen to the right way of doing things...keep the good work up cheers steve
I agree that its very informative.
Considered it stickied.
Here is my essay on getting the carbs right!!(to the book!!)
Is it important which way up the foam air seal goes on a bay engine? One side is sealed the other side open foam. Could you post an answer here and in one of your first 2 posts.
Thanks for all your help so far, I owe you a drink or two.
Engine compartment perimeter seal.
In that case, I shall have to cut out part of the upper section of the perimeter seal, to accommodate my engine-starting handle (aka starting crank). Ideally, I also need to find a bung for the starting-handle hole, in the rear cross-panel, behind the rear bumper.
It's in the British blood isn't it? I think my Dad took a huge leap going from his Ford Prefect and Morris Minor up to "modern" cars that did not feature a little round hole in the bumper.
with lucas electrics and british engineering, I'm not surprised!!
Haha! I'm going to tell him you said that. Maybe Lucas had a profitable side operation manufacturing crank handles.
Lucas.............The prince of darkness!
Hay my morris 850 starts fine thank you
You sinner, how dare you swear on this forum!!! BTW, Lucas did have a profitable operation......making unreliable parts!!!:lol:
At least Lucas were substandard in a friendly, reliable and civilised kind of way - the gold medal for truly awful car electrics belongs to Fiat by a country mile!
Come on, they were mere amateurs at bodgie electrics, Lada mastered the art of gloom and dark. Lucas made some good stuff, like ahh… or ahhh…. well they are an excellent supply of bits for scrap art sculpture. I think they even had a slogan “When comes to breakdowns, you can rely on Lucas”
ahh yes, Magneti Marelli... still wish I had hoarded all those porsche 2.7RS twin plug distributor caps....wouldn't care what their reputation is when it comes to those.
