    GTD40 for sale **SOLD**

    Re: GTD40 for sale That's good to know Brian. I haven't seen the boys and girls since you moved from West Meon. The embarrassing thing is that new venue is closer to me! Still have problems with getting up early to go to work the day after. Guess I'll have to give up work (if only)!

    Miracle Carb

    There's a new rolling road set up just down the road but they only seem to know about cars with injection and ECUs. I asked them if they knew a good carb man and they replied that they'd been looking for one for years and if I found one would I pass on his name! What could I reasonably...

    Miracle Carb

    She fired up first go and I spent about an hour and a half adjusting the timing, idle screws and curb idle screw until I got maximum inlet vacuum at 650 RPM. I then took her for a drive... Whoa! 0 to likely to lose licence in a couple of heartbeats! What's the next step?

    Miracle Carb

    I’ve taken the Holley off the car and can now confirm that the Secondary metering block doesn’t have a power valve and looks like the pictures of the metering block supplied with the 34-6 kit. I thought the primary throttle blades were fully closed but looking at them from the underside I can...

    Miracle Carb

    I have a Holley carb with 1850S stamped on the airhorn which makes it a model 4160. However,sometime in it's life it's been converted to a model 4150 presumably by using the Holley 34-6 kit. I say presumably because the secondary metering plate has been swapped for what looks like a metering...

    As you know my '40 is waiting for an engine transplant but I'll certainly take it to Silverstone even it is just for the drive. Anybody else up for it?

    Wedding lift required

    Thanks for replying Guys. Malcom - I'll phone you tomorrow. I think my friend would offer to clean your car with his tongue - he's that disappointed about my letting him down. Actually come to think about it he'd probably offer to clean it with MY tongue but let's not go there! Brian -...

    Wedding lift required

    Six months ago a friend at work asked me if I would drive him to his wedding in my 40. No problem. So last Saturday we had a dry run from Farnborough to a place just outside Petersfield. I ran him down there and back to his house and then I drove back to my place. The engine had sounded a...

    Speedometer problem

    Just before Christmas my Stewart Warner speedometer started playing up. When starting off for the first time in the day the speedometer wouldn’t register the speed although the odometer would ratchet up the miles. After a couple of miles it would start to register and then it would be OK for the...
