    Hello David - I too assume they are! I've not actually tried, but they look the right shape. £6.00 for Royal Mail 2nd class. Regards, Geoff
  4. I have for sale a pair of 7 inch headlight shells. They are new - I bought them several years ago and never got round to fitting them - and are nice and shiny. Wiring is included. £50 for the pair, plus delivery if required. You are welcome to collect them from Ruislip in Middlesex. If you would like them posted, please let me know where you are and I'll get a delivery price for you. Do ask if you have any questions.
  5. You could try asking these people http://www.collectorscarparts-heathrow.co.uk/ They have a large stock of old parts and are good at identifying them. Geoff

  8. LED Headlight bulbs

    There has been some discussion about LED bulbs in the classic car community. The consensus seems to be that if you have LED bulbs, the whole light fitting has to have been designed for them to be legal. This may happen for headlights, but if you want to use LEDs for your MG or Triumph brake lights to make them rather more visible, then that's not legal. It seems unlikely that anyone will make LED light fittings for classic cars. Geoff
  9. Points replacement

    Thanks for all your comments. There's no need to hide under stones! I'm not looking to spend much on the car at the moment. I don't know what cam is in the engine, and there doesn't seem much point in spending a lot on a full electronic ignition without a full engine rebuild, replacing the carbs with fuel injection, then getting a new gearbox, refurbing the diff, etc. I just want the car to run well so I can enjoy driving it. I hope it will be dry later on so I can have a go at setting the timing to see if that has a beneficial effect. Geoff
  10. Points replacement

    I finally got round to fitting the Accuspark points replacement. With this, and a new battery, the car now starts well. But it runs terribly! Lots of stuttering and lack of power. The idle speed is high too - about 1000 when cold, higher when warm. A mechanic suggested that retarding the ignition might help, so I'm going to try that. Just to help me do this, which way do you turn the distributor to retard? Geoff
  11. Dellorto Carbs

    I too have Dellortos on my crossflow. They seem to stay in tune, I've not really played with them. I don't have a cutout in my bonnet. If you decide not to use them, they will probably sell for quite a lot on Ebay! Especially as they were made in Italy and not Spain. Geoff
  12. Aluminium trim suppliers ???

    Are any of these close? http://www.europaspares.com/interior-parts/trim-rings.html Geoff
  13. Equity Release - any experience of it?

    There are a lot of scams in this area, and some of the schemes mean that you could lose your home if you live long enough. A friend of ours lost nearly everything. So do be very careful. Geoff

    I have a copy - it's a PDF, so I could e-mail it to you, if you PM me your address. Geoff
