  1. Don't use cellulose primer unless you are top coating immediately - it sucks up moisture from the air. Epoxy primer is best if you need to protect the base metal and need further metal work or just won't be top-coating for a while. Epoxy won't stick over etch primer, so avoid that. Rust Buster epoxy stuff (121 for underbody and 421 for topsides) seems to work well (but I've only had it on since last winter, so time will tell). When temperatures are down at current levels, the epoxy doesn't want to leave the gun. Don't thin more than 15% (20% max.) & make sure the component cans are as warm as possible (ideally 20-25'C) before mixing & spraying, Down the road, when you're ready, you can choose the filler primer, sealer (more 431 ?) and top coat system as epoxy primer works for all.
  2. I’ve just fitted one of these to my SC https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/90-Deg-Swept-Hose-Fitting-tail-M14-x1-5-female-to-8mm-hose-fuel-oil-diesel/392321457657?hash=item5b582e5df9:g:b3sAAOSwr~lYoeLr Peter Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Careless, I know, but I have acquired a surplus of compressors, don't have the inclination / time to fix and sell and would rather have the space. Both need some TLC - one is missing a pipe from the compressor to the tank but starts u OK, and the other starts only when I bang it on the floor (stating capacitor if they have them or a sticking piston ??) Offered to anyone who can collect either or both of them. If you get them to work properly, then a donation to the IB charity would be appreciated. Peter Fleet - GU51
  6. Thanks for calling in Phill - nice to see the 'new' motor running sweetly.

  12. Phill 5-6 feet will be plenty enough room and only 3-4 feet once engine is sat behind the car. You can borrow a high lift jack & some axle stands for the extraction. My suggestion would be to plan to replace head studs on broken side, check other side and stop at that for now unless you find other issues. You could do a cam swap at the same time if you want to but other than that I’d wait until the time suits to do a full rebuild. Happy to help (or stand & tut with the others) Peter Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I'm sure Jonny will be along in a moment, but as I understand it ...... As a lower cost / hybrid option, you can just replace the old compressor with an electrical compressor, new drier, etc, with a new alternator being recommended. I'm following the Pelican thread and have only noticed one comment about the temperature of the battery connection. The clever bit is the smarts within the compressor controller - it always gives as much cooling as it can until you're at the right temperature, but ramps back when other systems are consuming a lot of electrical power, etc. to protect the battery. If you go the whole hog and replace everything, the neat part of the new air distribution is that along with all new stuff, you also get air recirculation - take the part cooled internal air and cool it further, rather than just cooling the hot outside air. I was in Jonny's car at Le Mans last summer - his aircon was a worthwhile and welcome option 😎 Peter
