Re: Brosol carb lacks power

Re: Brosol carb lacks power

It will hit 75 on speedo which runs about 3-4 mph fast. Doesn't mean I cruise at that speed though.

Re: Brosol carb lacks power

Getting back to this........there seems to be confusion over which is the power and which is idle jet. The solex manual for the almost identical 31 pict 3 states the angled jet is idle, a diagram I have supports this too, yet other info as well as 'banger' above states angled is power. Anyone know d...

This new carb lacks power though, with poor acceleration and topping out at 60/65 mph max, wheras with the solex fitted, I get 70/75mph easily, plus better mpg. Tried different jets etc, ...

Re: Best tires for 14 wheel rims

I still don't get why 185/80R14 is quoted as the equivalent to the old 7.00 14 cross plys. 205/80R14 are almost spot on in diameter, circumference and revs/km, the biggest difference being the 8.1" width as opposed to the 7" width of the cross plys. Maybe I'm missing something here, other than the f...

Re: Best tires for 14 wheel rims

I have those too but find them too small. Next time I might be tempted to try 205/80R14 which would be closest to the 27" diameter of the original cross plys, though a little wider.
I'm running stock height and stock everything else on a 67.

Re: Recommended repro sun canopy??

Excellent info, thanks!! I was looking at that Olpro one on ebay as a possible candidate, so may get that as a quick useable option before going down the more lengthy route of making a proper copy. And here's the link to the nice but pricey original one on ebay https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpr...

Recommended repro sun canopy??

Can anyone recommend a more or less decent but not over expensive repro/aftermarket sun canopy/day awning to fit my devon, using the original awning rail?
