Re: 123ignition tune+

I couldn't work out how you get to orient the dizzy in any other position. I would've liked it so the vac nipple pointed towards the carb, but in order to get the light to illuminate, it had to be rotated away....

Re: 123ignition tune+

Hi Guys, I just installed a Tune + and haven't a clue what I'm doing, but I've got the engine running. If I'm understanding the general consensus, having rotated the dizzy counterclockwise until the little green light comes on, I do up the clamp and don't move the physical location of the dizzy any ...

Re: Dormobile style curved front roof rack ***SOLD ***

Hi and thanks for the message. I don't make many but still do one from time to time. I've got a couple of front and rears "in stock" at the moment - my own set that I've been running on Rusty for three years and another set that I made for myself as I fancied a change, the latters being more "raked ...

Re: red9 design front set up and irs can u use standard wheels

I run steel fifteens all round. The problem is the handbrake levers on the rear Hispec calipers....they foul on the webbing where the rim is welded to the centre.

Simon made me some spacers but they need to be 30mm to clear the levers. Hispec supply a slightly shorter lever too.......

Re: Red9 full set up.

Very pleased with mine. As a newbie to vehicle restoration the "no cutting" option appealed and everything came new. I can't compare to any other makes though. When I took off in France over a huge bump on a road, towing my Puck, everything landed safely and in a straight line........testament indee...

Re: Dellorto jet sizes

If the bus is bogging as you describe, then it could be that one or more of the idle jets is blocked. First renew all fuel lines as blocking is usually caused by ethanol in fuel rotting the lining of traditional Chinese fuel hose (often says R9 on the side but is fake). Check your tank and in line ...

Re: Dellorto jet sizes

OK thanks. The backfiring only occurred when I put in 98 petrol. It hadn't happened before and happened less and less as I diluted the mix back to 95. Hasn't happened since. Exhaust nuts weren't really loose but I was able to tighten most of them a little. I couldn't see signs of blowing. Having sai...

Re: Dellorto jet sizes

So....DRLA 40s. Centuries are 30s. I've put back the 122 mains as I found some loose nuts on exhaust....not very loose though but Ive nipped them all up now.

According to charts I've found DRLA 40s should have 34 venturis and bigger main jets.....
