More items in the garage clearout.... Also a very simple but effective differential breather bottle; Seems a shame to junk it... £5 + postage. A lightweight windscreen washer bottle. I made this to save carrying a kilo of washer fluid around and taking up a decent size space under the bonnet. Passed the MoT every time, it just means that you carry less than a coke-can amount of washer fluid with you...Perfect! (how often do you manage to drain a washer bottle in a Westfield?!). It's got the T shaped connector with a couple of inches of wiring tail, and also a black washer spray nozzle...SOLD And a Ford Sierra handbrake....SOLD (I've also got a handbrake cable if you really need it - not the best condition but may be useful to someone?)
Hi all, My Seight is running a TVR 4.0l V8 on a Edelbrock 1404 4 barrel carb with a Offenhauser inlet manifold and K & N pancake air filter. The Rocker covers are both vented to atmosphere with no pipe to the carb vacuum. Having had the car set up on a rolling road I noted quite a lot of oil smoke from one of the vents at full revs (has an after market filter on it) due to "blow by" and I'm thinking of connecting one of the rocker covers to the carb either via the air filter or to the PCV vacuum pipe at the front of the carb. I'd use a standard TVR flame trap and a pipe into the bottom of the pancake filter as first choice as this seems to be the least likely to mess up the carb settings. However I'm toying with the idea of connecting to the PCV as I understand you get a better vacuum and therefore less oil leakage. Questions are:- Does anyone have any experience of this? pictures would be great and even part numbers, sources etc. And do I need to fit a PCV valve in the second option as I'm not clear if one of these would have been fitted as standard, is it therefore needed? Any thoughts or recommendations gratefully received. Cheers Dave
More of a post for the archives really!!!! For any and all staring down the barrel of £45 for a fancy alloy breather cap from Burton Power, or £7+p&p for that awful looking yellow one (which im convinced is deliberate to make you fork out for the alloy one). The filler cap for an Austin Maestro or Montego is EXACTLY the same fit, identical to the yellow one that Burton sell BUT in a nice neutral black colour. It's taken months of searching and researching, but I finally found an old forum post on a Maestro owners forum, where one single line mentioned it was the same as for old Fords. All I had to go on was an old Austin part number, which I then traced to an old website and found an "alternative" part number, which then lead me to the ads on ebay Edit - 2014/07/20 - Part number POBC01, seems to be the yellow cap, searching for "POBC01 oil cap" will bring up a bunch of "alternative" replacements. I just got one on Ebay for £6.61 delivered
