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-...

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...

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?

Re: Dynamo Clearance Issues

I did some further investigation at the weekend, with the car jacked up on Axle stands I could see the PO Martin had fitted some Stainless Steel Heat Shields between the Exhaust Manifolds and the Engine Block to protect the Engine Mounting Rubbers presumably, these appear to raise the Engine 3 or 4m...
