  1. Space Saver Spare Wheel

    Thanks as always everyone, I'm always suprised by the quality of the answers you get on here to the most random of questions :-) I know what to look for now. Cheers Dave
  2. Space Saver Spare Wheel

    Agreed, I currently carry tyreweld and a small jack as a "just in case" but thought a space saver might be an option, just thinking out loud really. Thanks though.
  3. Space Saver Spare Wheel

    Hi all, I'm thinking of carrying a spare wheel on my Seight which I havent done before, I thought a space saver might be a good idea due to size weight etc, only thing is I'm not sure which donor car wheel would fit, pleanty of them on e bay but which one? Anyone point me in the right direction? Cheers Dave
  4. How heavy / light should my stearing be

    Ok & thanks, car not at home at the moment as I'm moving but will have a look over the weekend, the tyres are 17 inch low profile which could be part of the issue, it's not a "problem" as such but thought I'd ask, I'm going to splash out on a ProComp set up etc soon so maybe that will help. Cheers for all the replies as always.
  5. How heavy / light should my stearing be

    Thanks all, I'll investigate further but yes it could be "the big ol' engine up front " :-)
  6. Hi all, I have a 2004 Seight, my stearing is quite heavy at slower speads and I'm wondering if this is correct, I've seen videos of guys wipping the car about one handed and you'd need to be Geof Capes to do that in mine. Not sure about the rack but I'd assume its standard, I do have the wide front end. Your thoughts and advice would be very welcome. Cheers
  7. Tyre pressure

    I had the same issue with my Seight, had 30psi all round when I picked it up from the previous owner, this was the best advice I found:- "The correct tyre pressures depends on the weight of your car (including passengers and luggage so this will vary), and the size and make of tyres. You will need the following information to calculate correct PSI for any given combination: (Gross) weight of vehicle load rating of tyres at max PSI (the sidewall will have this information - something like 600kg at 44 PSI etc) For example, the weight of my legacy with some passengers and baggage I've worked out at 1700kg My Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD2s are rated for 545KG at 44 PSI so: 545kg x 4 = 2180kg (max load) 2180 (combined max load) ÷ 1700 (vehicle weight) = 1.28 44 (max tyre PSI) ÷ 1.28 = 34.31 So you should inflate your tyres to 34 PSI / 2.4 bar in that example." I run 18 psi all round, Cheers
  8. Full weather gear, access.

    Sounds like I just need to practice :-) thanks all, it was a bit of a flippant question but with the winter coming good to know the answer.
  9. Full weather gear, access.

    LOL I'll need a hoist ! I can get in but it's not easy steering with your but cheeks
  10. Full weather gear, access.

    Afternoon all, bit of an odd question, I have a Seight with full weather gear, hardly ever used it but with the roof on and the doors in place how the hell do you get in? :-) I'm 5ft7in and 12-7 by the way so should have room.
  11. Seight engine "Stumble"

    Problem solved, the actuator for the "pump" on the side of the carb moved from top hole to bottom hole so it gets a bigger squirt, stumble gone. If only they were all that easy.
  12. Bike style front number plate.

    Got mine from http://www.platesforcars.ie/designer.php#numberplates small one for the front standard one for the rear, never had any problems touch wood. Oh & the front one is 12 x 3 in the rear 20.5 x4.4 in.

  14. Seight engine "Stumble"

    Thanks 6carjon, it "feels" like it could be something along those lines so I'll take a look, fingers crossed. Cheers.
  15. Seight engine "Stumble"

    Hi all, I have a 4L Seight running an Edelbrock / Webber 500 4 barrel carb, I've sorted out various issues since buying it in May last year, recently I noticed a "stumble" in slow bends usually after running along at a steady speed then turning into a side road. I am thinking maybe fuel pressure or surge in the tank but not really sure where to start looking, does anyone have any suggestions? The car was set up on a rolling road about 6 or 7 months ago and runs really well otherwise. Any thoughts gratefully received.
