Re: Timing Light ! Finding the White Mark !

Sounds like you are doing the right things. It is easier to mark the harmonic balancer, but you can still do the same thing with the timing light on the flywheel. It's just the angle is a bit harder on your back. Sounds like you have marked the flywheel, or cleaned it. If you can see the UC mark, an...

Re: Longshot - Hilborn pump

Thanks. Willing to trade more than a few adult cordials for an 00 pump if I can lay hands on one.

I've got a small mountain of Enderle 80A pumps, but they are even bigger still... way too big for anything I will ever do.

Longshot - Hilborn pump

I'm looking to buy a Hilborn PG150 pump, in the "00" scale (sometimes referred to as a PG150-00 or a #00 pump). Not overly fussed if it is a PG150A, PG150B or PG150C. I have a PG150-0 pump but it is significantly larger than what I need. I can tame it down, but would prefer a 00 pump if I ...

Re: Twin carb problem --- FIXED

Can't weld, but I know my way around a carby-retta. Glad you got it sorted.

One of these days I'll publish the next version of that Stromberg Guide. I've got all the info to update it to include the WWs, but never seem to get around to finishing it.

Re: EK Fuel Gauge pegs to the right on ignition.

Yes, they are serviceable... kind of. From memory, someone here (I thought it was Clay, but apparently not) pulled one apart by drilling out rivets and cleaning... can't remember where that post is on the forum though. They are also available new from Rare Spares. https://www.rarespares.net.au/rares...

Re: Project 2.

The banjo fitting seals with two washers, one of which is up against the float bowl body.

You probably don't need bigger fuel lines.

Re: Project 2.

I'd re-run the fuel line from the pump to the carb in larger line, and use a different adaptor (1/8-NPT to 3/8 inverted flare) at the pump. An easier way out is to get a banjo fitting that runs to a nipple (Holley part number 26-25). Point the nipple down 45 degrees. Slide the flare nut back slightl...

Re: Family Affair Ek Ute

You put a water tap/valve in one of the heater hoses feeding the heater core. Water on = hot air. Water off = warm air because the tap leaks 8) The tap is often put under the engine bay, but can also live inside the car. Get fancy with the tap, and you can run it off the dash control slider thing. Y...

Re: EK Fuel Gauge pegs to the right on ignition.

Don't ask my children. Every time they drive my car, the fuel gauge pegs over to the left :lol: How they manage to get the car home, and into the driveway with not enough left in it to start is beyond me. Ninja fuel management skills. Pegging to the right means the sender is sending LOTS of resistan...
