  1. Rolling Road

    So teamed up with the guys form NWKCOG again, and met for a rolling road day. Just a get together, see what your car ran and have a laugh, not a full day of minor adjustments to get the best. Great weather and a good turnout. Eventually it was my go Now being vertically challenged next to our rolling road supremo for the day Ade, meant I had to work the pedals in my own car. As he couldn't fit in ! Result ? Well all road vary, but those that had done it before got the results they expected, so I'm happy to think the 100BHP at the wheels ( 118BHP at flywheel ) is reasonably accurate. And I'm happy with that, specially given some of the other results on the day. But all in all a great day, great company, and good to know there is a small one man garage that knows kits and carbs locally !
  2. Weber set up

  3. Which engine discussion.

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2007-MAZDA-6-2-3-SPORT-LPG-DUAL-FUEL-CONVERTED-12-MONTHS-MOT-UNTIL-03-2019/222896955431?hash=item33e5b1a027:g:1EwAAOSwWxxatncC You could probably get most of the purchase price back for the leftovers !
  4. Nodiz, it's alive.

    It's alive. Its been a bit of a Saga, but the guys at https://motorsport-electronics.co.uk/products/ignition-only-systems/nodiz-pro/ have been great. Swapped to the Webcon trigger wheel setup, much happier with that, QED were good and refunded on their kit. Rolling road booked for 14th April !
  5. Something for the weekend

    We went to supercars of Southport at the weekend. OK, so there were 1 or 2 supercars, and a lot of Focus ST's, but there were a couple of little gems too. I think we got the most viewers, though the supercar drivers might disagree
  6. SOLD SOLD Contoured Dash

    Will do a deal if it helps. Currently after a Roll Bar with rear stays, RAC or MSA type. Or 13" Minilite style wheels WHY
  7. SOLD SOLD Contoured Dash

    Westfield Contoured Dash, with top bumper/finisher. Never used. Includes sheet of Carbon effect ABS for clock and switch mounts. Some small storage marks, but will polish up nice. Been planning on changing it for a while, but now decided I like the dash I have ( honestly nothing to do with the amount of work needed and chickening out ! ) Prefer collection ( Home Southport Mersyside, or office hours Bolton )as it is an odd shape to wrap, but will wrap and post for £20 extra. £150
  8. SOLD Full Tonneau for Narrow Body

    Next round of decluttering ! Full Tonneau for Narrow Body Car, came with a job lot as I wanted some other bits in the bundle. Suitable for low seats, or seats with removable headrests, proper old school Zip down the middle works fine Not full of poppers, so won't look bad if you need to change the locations of them. Clean and presentable. Use as is, or might be good to chop up and make a boot cover and half doors ? £50 + £8 Postage Yes, the Mrs is out, hence getting away with putting it on the bed to take pictures
  9. Snowy pics

    Might need my gloves on for a run out.

    The ECU loses sync with the trigger wheel, and the sync error count ramps up. I cut down a spare sensor to get it closer to the trigger wheel and had it running with just the odd sync error. It wasn't quite square on. So I'm happy with the rest of the setup. Its not like its over complicated, the concept is pretty basic. I'd just like fairly expensive plug and play bits to plug and play, so if it needs things doing in the future they aren't too bespoke. If some cars need shorter spacers to get the bracket lined up, put them in with the bracket, or put the rear sensor mount closer to the front one and I could easily space the sensor. It'll get there eventually, I was going to look at it last weekend, but the weather was so nice I just drove it instead

    Cheers To be fair I can't get a consistent read of the wheel, and I'm none to impressed with the QED bracket. I get the impression if and when I drop the sump, it'll be an A*** to get it lined up just so again. I'm going to have a rethink, and perhaps go with the Webcon kit I was contemplating at the outset. QED have been helpful up to the point of saying they've sold loads ( nearly 100 ) and this is the first time someone has had an issue, so I sent them, the details of other people I found with the same type of tolerance problems. I am at the whim of the weather gods though, as I don't have a garage, so it'll probably be a few more weeks before I progress further.

    It's like understated elegance sat next to Trev's Tiger !

    QED sent the shorter spacers and bolts, so on the dot of 4PM on work form home Friday, I downed keyboard and cracked on. Shorter spacers, + dremmel action on the holes in the spacer to allow the sensor to fit + a bit of gentle persuasion. Hopefully that's close enough to get a decent pulse signal. If things got to plan Sunday, I'll get TDC set and remove the tooth on the wheel. Then it's just a case of wiring up the Nodiz, well plugging it in, the loom is made.
  15. Parking Ticket?

    I'm sure I saw a piece on dropped curbs recently. They only allow you to cross the pathway to a parking spot not on that pathway. So in theory, drop curb outside your own house, you cant park in it blocking the pavement, just use it as a way to get to your drive on your land. So a dropped curb anywhere else, probably has the same rules apply.
