  1. Build Info Wiki

    In fact, if we had a build 'wiki' here (or elsewhere), Mark Walker could even post latest factory info in there - he must get really bored answering the same questions day-in, day-out from builders that just need a more up to date photo from the factory, for example.

  3. Build Diary - BugMan's Sport 250

    I have a solution to the build manual problem - we all know (and suspect the factory also knows) that the best build documentation is distributed right here on WSCC. So couldn't we ask WSC for a server donation in return for wiki build documentation here? We could have a 'new build documentation' sub-forum rather than the generic 'Tech talk' with a heading aligned to each of the build manual sections. It would obviously need some moderation to avoid drifts on the subjects, but it could be quite easy for people to paste chunks from their existing build logs under the different headings to get things started... @Dave Eastwood (Gadgetman) - Club Secretary @Chris King - Webmaster and Joint North East AO, is this a possibility worth discussing maybe?
  4. Can I drill through?

    Maybe you could first drill a small inspection hole near the edge of the frame that would be covered by the stud?
  5. How low have you set your flaps!!

    No, they always flap away from the tyre - I guess I don't go very fast backwards No problems reversing - but I think the 'flappiness' has helped when I've rolled through the twin rollers at MOT time - the flap has bent rather than snagging. I used JJC 4mm material: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-x-Pair-Rally-Rallying-4mm-Black-Mudflap-Mud-Flap-Mudflaps-Material-MSA-Spec-/360910473619?hash=item5407f0c993 I've never had a problem with the brackets (mine are original 1996 vintage with good welds though). I attached the flaps using BigHead fasteners at the bottom edge of the cycle wing.
  6. How low have you set your flaps!!

    From the ground up, mine are 2" and just clear the brake rollers at MOT. But they are quite 'flappy', so I know at speed that probably increases to 3-4". They work pretty well. If you draw an imaginary line from the bottom of the tyre towards your rear arch, I think you'll find 5" won't block very much of the spray.
  7. Which beer have you been drinking today?

    It's always fun to order 4 Koff in Finland, though...
  8. Anyone starting their winter tinkering list yet ?

    I used MGB533 M1144 but had to drill the clip holes out to 6.5mm to fit, so they're obviously not quite perfect.
  9. Wooden Sign made using a router

    That's excellent, I never would have thought you could have done that free-hand!

  13. Por 15 advice

    ?? Did you get two very different forum posts mixed up? Not like @RussH to miss a comment

    Not sure what you mean, Gary- do you mean a rollover valve, or some way to tee a return into the breather hose without it squirting out the top?
  15. Pinto to Duratec (Again!)

    See here for an idea of what a swap to EFI involves- perfectly doable on the pinto
