Re: Pre heat pipe thingy!

Many thanks for the excellent discription. It looks like I still need more bits. Who ever thought that the awful carb/filter that the previous owner fitted would cause so much grief in the quest for a smooth running SP 1600 engine! To date I have the following amassed ready for the refit.. Rebuilt c...

Pre heat pipe thingy!

Hi all! In my quest to get my van running smoothly again and back to stock with its oil bath filter I’m looking for the tube that connects to the preheat hose and fixes to the tin just above the exhaust (I think) it looks like it has a slash cut end from the parts book. Sorry for crap description bu...

I’ve been looking for the ‘64 on filter for a while and I’ve been offered one for £100 which is going to work out expensive if it doesn’t fit! Yes I agree I might have ...

Hi, I’ve replaced the crappy repro brazilian carb on my 1600 single port ex industrial engine with a rage rebuilt solex pict 30/3. I’ve also had to fit a spacer because the previous owner has converted the bus to 12v and added an alternator and split charge. The spacer allows the carb to clear the a...
