Re: New ethanol fuel

I've recently had a bout of rough running with my Tiger and I'm pretty sure it's down to the Fuel causing problems, although I normally try and use Esso Synergy+ Fuel which I thought was Ethanol free in my part of the country? It's certainly a worry about what effect Ethanol has on the rubber compon...

Possible Holley Carburetor troubles

Hi All I have recently had rough running trouble with my standard Tiger Engine fitted with a replacement 350 CFM Holley carburetor which was fitted in around 2001. The car was very reluctant to start (Not normal), ran very rough, wouldn't tick over and eventually broke down on me and wouldn't re-sta...

Re: Brads Tiger

Your making great progress Brad :D

Here's a photo of one of the brackets on the Firewall on my Tiger, no idea if these are original though?

I have no bracket on the boot, the hook on the rubber strap simply clips onto the boot lid support pressing, again no idea if this is original.

Regards

Gary

Re: Standard air filter replacement filter element

I'm sure I have a KN element in mine. What is the recommended cleaning chemical for it please and by memory, are you not supposed to spray the element afterwards with an oil. Next question- if this is correct, how viscous an oil? Jerry K&N Do a Kit for Cleaning & Re-treating their Air Filters as th...

Re: New ethanol fuel

Most Fuel sold in the UK is stated as containing up to 5% Ethanol now, even some of the 97/98 Octane rated ones? I was told last year that ESSO Synergy Supreme + fuel sold in my area (The Midlands) contains no Ethanol and is 97 rated, I try and use this when ever I can. I also add Millers VSP Additi...

Re: E-Bay Mk1a Restoration Project

The floors and boot area look a bit crusty and are described as such in the Ad?

It will need a lot of time and money spending on it that's for sure, hope someone rescues it though :o

Re: Oil Filter Query

I managed to Change the Oil & Filter last Friday in line with the Workshop Manual and tgr747's Instructions, so thanks :) It wasn't all plain sailing though :cry: I tried to undo the pipe Union and the filter adapter started to spin too! I had to scrounge a suitable adjustable spanner off my Father-...

Re: Sherwood Restorations

I know a bit about Sherwood Restorations and I often pop in to see the cars for sale and know something about the Tigers they have worked on recently. They re-commissioned/restored an original low mileage White Tiger (18K Miles) to a good standard and I had chance to see the Car when finished, I hav...

Re: Oil Filter Query

Ok Thanks

I'm off to Newark Auto-jumble on Sunday, will get an assorted pack off one of the traders :wink:

Will also keep a look out for some decent 20W/50 Classic Oil too?

Re: Oil Filter Query

tgr747

I didn't realize that the Centre pipe Union and adaptor needed undoing to release the old Oil Filter?

I thought the Oil Filter screwed onto the Adaptor/Aluminium housing :shock:

I think I understand what your saying, any idea what size the Fibre washer is I need to replace?
