    Re: Iridium spark plugs in Series 1?

    I've just been checking NGK website, and for 6BPES, which I use for my 1091cc engine in my 2c.
    The Iridium upgrade is the BPR6E1X short code 6637.

    Re: Noisy Fulvia Coupe

    It must have been pretty noisy to fail the
    Goodwood test at the track day, no standard Fulvia exhaust should have failed that.

  5. Re: A question for those of you who know about electric motors

  8. Re: A question for those of you who know about electric motors

    Thanks Hubert, but the fan runs when connected direct to the battery but not when in its proper placeπŸ€”
    Incidentally it is a single speed motor.

  9. Re: A question for those of you who know about electric motors

    Thanks,
    It's a metal housing but the motor is mounted on 3 pillars that are hard rubber, the colours of the wires aren't an issue, I had to add them as the Flaminia motor doesn't have any wires...

    Re: Going nuts

    We were using nylock nuts in General motors, Vauxhall Bedford, certainly in the 1970's, and possibly earlier.

    Re: Accelerator Pedal Rollers?

    My old rollers used to stick when it was hot resulting in the pedal sticking down.
    I've had roller bearings fitted for about 15 years now with no problems.
    Great improvement.

    Try pulling out the inner cable as it sounds like it might have broken.

    Re: Carburetor support strap

    Marnix,
    As I understand it the bushing besides supporting the considerable weigh of the carburettors, helps insulate the engine vibrations to stop frothing, I think without the sleeve the stud will...

    Re: Lurching/surging carb (?) problem.

    Must admit, I doubt I'd have thought about the choke.
    Why not try a set of Dellorto DH35LA's.
