  1. I remember the call out for owners for the production of that video. Loti gets a nice shot an 22:25.
  2. Smitten for life indeed. ... I've had Loti for 14 years now. I had a period of little use and storage due to work time and sproglets. However before then I warmed her boots several times a week.
  3. Nice to see the project is still going strong Mike.
  4. I didn't know that about the filler flap and agree it looks much better with the rounded back edge to mirror the air scoop. If I had I would have replicated it when I modified my car.
  5. I wouldn't worry about it. Most of us can only hope for a 9" chopper on a good day..
  6. Others can be found here

  8. There have been a few over the years. My other half loves the car but not driving it. Not exclusively male only but then not far from it.
  9. Unfortunately not at least in the practice sense.. If you were to remove the roof panel and have the top of your head sticking out the sun roof may be if your height is more back than leg bias.
  10. As a follow up I replaced the vapour with 4mm ID fuel line. OD was near identical to the original clear hose. Replacing the lot didn't take much more than 40 mins.
  11. Good news is I solved the issue over the weekend and it looks like the pump is fine. I used the carb tune tester to check the vacuum by connecting it directly to the larger bore plastic pipe over the RH fuel tank. The noise stopped instantly and the guage was off the scale. I got a length of 4mm fuel pipe, soften then end with a bit of hammer bashing to push it onto the plastic pipe by about 15mm. Was cut and the other end is a good straight fit to the T connector. The sound has now completely gone, the brake warning light operates as expected and significantly less leg pressure is
  12. I only got to have a brief look at this last night. Investigation of the vacuum pipes did show that the three prong connector on top of the RH tank had separated. I could not follow them in total but suspect the larger diameter had plastic pipe links to the vac pump with a reducer rubber end that connects to the white 'T'. The rubber end crumbled when I tried the refit it. I lashed it with some tape. Its not air tight as I can hear slight sucking. The brake light is now working as expected although the noise still exists. I not driven it yet to see if the braking is any different. Do you
  13. That is exactly the sound and general location. I'm well out of practice as I didn't link the two faults together I really would not be surprised if I have a leaking / cracked hose. I've already replaced the fuel line as it was as hard as rock. Its also possible I connected up the vacuum pipes incorrectly or are not making a good seal especially on the push fits as I had to remove them to refit the distributor. I won't have a chance to look at it until Wednesday evening but I think you got it, Thanks.
  14. I've had my car off the road and stored for several years essentially due to kids and a faulty dizzy pickup wire. Its now back on the road again largely without issues (two actually so far). One thing I do have is a what could be described as a rubbing or small blowing coming from the flywheel, clutch, release bearing region, more release bearing. Symptoms are: 1. Rubbing sound is linked to revs and most prominent at tick over. 2. Dipping the clutch has no effect. 3. Gear changes and clutch operation as normal. 4. No whine etc from gear box that I can tell when engauged. 4. I'
