Re: Pud

Merry Christmas from St Ives! :D It's been snowing at home in Richmond North Yorks. Gloriously mild here in Cornwall! Fab cottage with an almost azure sea lapping the rocks and beach below us. Plenty of Christmas visitors here including large family groups that definitely arrived after the rule chan...

Re: Battery Quick Disconnect failure

I have a DisCarnect (the one Club Lotus sells) fitting on the earth terminal of my battery so I have particular interest in the failure. I only barely tighten the green rotary screw-down terminal mainly because the level of my hand grip has always been at girly level and has got even weaker now I'm ...

Sparks want 1000 minimum order to re-run again. :evil:
1000 X £50 = they shot themselves in the foot.

Makes you wonder how they covered the first batch! :?

Re: Spark Excel model

I haven't got one either.
I wish they're do another run.

Ideally they should to do a batch of red ones (I think it's the most prevalent colour?) but the white one would do.

Re: Cooling issues on 92 SE

Hello Trevor Yes system pressure raises the boiling point, but a 100C temperature reading in the Excel is a gross remote reading taken at the thermostat and not at the liner surface/water jacket interface where small pockets of steam may form at higher local temperatures. And yes if cooler water is ...

Re: Cooling issues on 92 SE

You could consider moving over to the dark side of cooling (ie Evans waterless coolant / EWP) and leave system pressure worries behind. I know, I know, I'm pretty much ploughing my own furrow here ... but never say never! Consider that my Evan's coolant system hasn't lost a microlitre of coolant sin...

Re: 215/50r15 back in production

there has been a Vredestein for a while but I would suggest fitting a proper classic tyre. The Pirelli P700-Z has a more suited period carcass design. https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/215-50-r15-pirelli-p700-z.html these are the real thing. Thousand Quid will be worth spending when Excel values are...
