    I'm going to design an adapter tonight that mounts onto the carb and 3D print it tomorrow.
  2. Using Tin-Top MAF Sensors to Balance Carbs

    I thought I'd pop up a quick post about an experiment I'm trying.

    Using the hosepipe-and-ear technique, I roughly balanced the SU carbs on my Rover V8 once I had it running but I've been thinking...

    It's tricky because air can collect anywhere in the system if theres a high spot, even if that spot isn't the highest in the system (like air pockets in flooded caves). If you have points like that...

    Doesn't that mean that the thermostat housing becomes the high point?

    I suppose a process can work well without it being a good system. I follow plenty of processes at work that I think are flawed but I know that if I comply with the requirements, no matter how much I...

    Have you considered the possibility that it's nothing to do with the fuel system at all? Your problems seem to be intermittent and so the engine starting/not starting when fuel pumps are changed...

    Having done a bit of 3D printing (there's a prototype clutch release bearing carrier rising out of the resin as we speak), I'd be tempted to buy a proper product for the application you referenced,...

    The fuse box (right side of driver footwell) and flasher unit (above driver's right knee) are dry as a bone and no visual sign of previous water ingress.

    Looking at the wiring diagram again, so...

    Cheers. It's not the first time I've washed it this way but I'll see if I can find any damp components.
  18. All Indicator Light Permanently Illuminated

    Here's a strange one (to me at least):

    I backed my Sumo onto the drive for a quick hose pipe and sponge bath and then left it in the sun to dry. A couple of hours later I rolled it back into the...

    So you're after something like this (not saying this fits and the reviews suggest there are still problems) but in the UK?

    Judging by what I flushed out of my coolant system, I'd be surprised if a few fragments of thread will cause you any problems. However, you could coat it in grease before you chase it out; that...

    I was mistaken; if anyone else is thinking about this a stumbles across my post, the 2.0 does NOT have a flat-faced flywheel (the 2.2 does, but that doesn't have the Mazda spline).

    Is the IVA noise test at 3/4 the RPM of maximum power? If so, perhaps maximum power RPM should be 4/3 the quietest RPM (excluding zero RPM, of course).

    They initially claimed it was the OEM clutch, so it was easy to replace if it wore out, but the flywheel didn't need to be modified, so I asked them what it was as I couldn't find one that would be...

    As you say, I don't have a cover that matches the flywheel anyway, but I'm thinking of the Probe (and some Mazdas) clutch kit because it's just that, a kit.

    If the clutch wears out it's cheaper...
