    VDO Rev counter

    Hi Mark The signal comes from the coil The dip switches are on, on & off (1&2&3) Yes the gauge was the correct way, i even switched them the opoosite way just in case. Im thinking it may be a faulty gauge Rob

    VDO Rev counter

    Hi Jen Thanks for the info, its difficult to say how much its out, it reads ok at 2000rpm and then seems to get worse the more the car revs. The ignition systems is a std new electronic V8 distributer. The VDO gauge dip switches are set up as indicated on its data sheet for a 8 cylinder engine. Thanks Rob

    VDO Rev counter

    Does anyone know what could be wrong with my new VDO rev counter. The dip switches are set correctly but the needle shows the gauge is over revving. Am i missing the point somewhere? Thanks Rob

    Smoke blowing back thro carb

    Hi Its none of these, all have been checked. Ive not had much time to check it our recently with work. However ive noticed that when the lead to the dizzy is checked against the chassis i only get a single spark as the ignition is switched off. Rob
  7. Can anyone help? Ive refurbed my scuttle, replaced all the dials etc and since trying to restart the car i'm getting smoke blowing back through my Holley 4 barrel when trying to start. I cannot think of anything i may have done. The cars not being started since last November! It appears to be a problem with my ignition timing but none of this has been touched. Thanks Rob

    Alternator fouling chassis

    I had the car on ramps this evening looking at them, they look ok, however looking at the rest of the car it may be worth changing them. Rob

    Alternator fouling chassis

    Its only about 2mm clear, its made a small dent in the cross member with the engine movement. The last owner fitted a couple of washers on the engine mounting to try to lift the engine slightly but with no joy
  13. I have a Halfords 409 alternator on my V8 and its fouling on the chassis diagonal cross member. Ideally it needs lifting up by approx 20mm. To enable the pulley to match up to the ones on my water pump and crankshaft the alternator is "spaced" 25mm forward of the cast mounting bracket. Its pretty obvious that something is not right, can anyone advise the correct alternator or another way to solve this problem Thanks Rob

    Lifting ramps at Stoneleigh

    Photo 1/11 You can drive the car onto the ramps when in their lowered position. Then raise them up with the remote hydraulic pump.. Very strong and has a safety lock to prevent the ramps from dropping. I use mine quite a lot.
