    Good on you for having a go! Fewer people willing to charge in and see what occurs these days but it's the only way to learn. Keep it up and you'll be an Expert soon enough!

  • Hi Jonny, long time no see mate! With a Cleveland, the story is a bit different, more related to the oil system and how it works once you stray from stock on the cam and lifters amongst other things. Took me a while to figure it out cos I made the fatal mistake of trusting our American cousins and their...

    I set up float chambers (you call them tanks?) so that after running, shut off and remove sight plugs and fuel should just trickle out or if not, just bump the car sideways and if fuel spills out then I call it good. It should not pour out when the plugs are removed, too high. If you have set it too...

    Filters are always a good idea so adding one will help more than it hinders. There are common filters but I don't know what you would have locally, I have a farm shop near me and I just ask for the metal inline filters they sell. Couple of quid each. This is the type, but these are expensive (to me)...

    Very easy to sort out, as you say, many times just hitting it with handle of a screwdriver would fix it but truth be told, re-fitting the fuel filters we had cleverly ditched would prevent it. Often some dirt will collect on the seat and stop it closing, so it floods. Remove the needle assembly carefully...

  • Yes it can be done. Did it few times when desperate to race and already entered (300-400 tied up there) so had to be done. Steering and cross member have to come down then starter and sump. You can make up a little gizmo out of wire to push the shells out of the main housings in the block, Rods...

    replied to T10 woes. I welcome any assistance.
    Clutch freeing off OK? Sticking in gear or resisting going into gear often a clutch release issue. Unlikely to be shifter, if not clutch then gearbox internal issue. Never had one pop out during driving, few options there: Shifter, synchros, worn forks etc. Hope you sort it.

    Take the air filter off and the list number will be visible at the front of the choke horn. Best advice is then hammer that filter flat, chuck it the bin and buy a decent one.
    Post up the list number if you can't find it for yourself and someone will tell you what you have there HTH
    Cheers,...

    replied to Weaping core plug
    You can, but it won't be easy. Need to support the engine, undo engine mount, jack engine up enough to access the plug, remove it and then refit the new plug before reversing the procedure. I made up a tool to do jobs like this basically like a very short 'tophat' with an indent on the large side so...

    Power steering hose bracket, should have a black rubber insert to isolate the hoses from the steel of the bracket.
