  1. Please be aware everyone considering using an upgraded ignition system. The accuspark company selling online are unhelpful in the extreme. Sounds like a great product in the listings but avoid this company at all costs. That’s Accuspark... Not looking for comments here this is Purely for your information.
  2. Not quite Chris The Elan is running nice though... Finished the brake callipers refurbishment. New seals, pads and a repaint. Going to see how these callipers work with the vacuum pump installation before I consider the PNM upgrade. Going back on now. Happy Daze..
  3. Glad to see you are keeping my ring polished for me Ian... Pete did buy a few. Must be getting near the end now...unless he has had copies... wouldn’t be the first time someone coverted my ring hombre...
  4. Why note bring him instead of football... last time you brought him he said he much preferred the cars, he said he only did the footie for you and that he hated it...
  5. The cafe is onsite Chris and he got extra sausage in just for you...
  6. Just been speaking to Alex at the workshop and the Cafe on site doesn’t really kick off until about 10 am so I would suggest a later arrival time maybe 9.45- 10.00 am hope this hasn’t scuppered any plans for you all. See you then. Turnout sounds promising after all.
  7. So the “ Moore” lives again. Got the car running on Sunday and sounding very sweet. Can’t post any footage as the files are too big. However got the fine tuning to do. Thanks to Sparky for the back up with my electrical testing procedures. Nice one fella. The exhaust sounds great BTW
  8. Ok so thanks to Chris j for reminding me to up date on progress for the vac pump install. With Advise from Ian @Chillidoggy I have installed a Volvo vacuum pump and a bespoke manifold with pressure gauge and vacuum switch. All running through a relay switching from the ignition and a fused supply from the battery. The vacuum hoses have Non return valves at the pump and at the inlet manifold. This allows for the manifold to remain connected in the event of any possible pump malfunction. I have got the whole thing installed but can only run static as the car is still off the road. I will update again when I have more information. This is not the final position of the unit. I’m going to tidy things up a little when ready.
  9. That is exactly what I have done. Also kept the vacuum to the intake manifold serving the heating dampers and the servo I case the pump was to malfunction. Total solution I reckon. Let’s see when I’m up and running. Unless you do the job and can update me..
