  1. I bought this one recently. It seems to work well; so far I’ve used It take the oil out my XKR (sump not easily accessible) using the cars suction pipe and, with the hoses the other way around, fill the transmission with ATF. This worked great as the exhaust prevents a manual fill and you have to get 10 litres in sharpish before the fluid exceeds the max temperature for setting the level. David

    930 odd noise

    It’s possible Mark. I did this a few years ago - the plastic seal disintegrates In the recirc valve. Mine didn’t whistle though, only click on a closing throttle. It’s a good opportunity to check for boost and vac leaks as you say. Cheers David

    930 odd noise

    If it only happens under load then I think a boost leak or, less likely, a vacuum leak is probably the noise. if a boost leak is significant then the mixture will be rich as air is lost after its metered for fuel. Checking the Air Fuel Ratio (AFR) under load would help if you’re able to do this. Also checking these you’re making full boost lwould be good, although the standard electronic gauge isn’t really accurate. Failing that you need to systematically check all O rings and hoses. As said a common failure point are the O rings at either end of the charge pipe (aluminium pipe joint
  4. I had the same issue a few weeks ago. The plastic sleeve inside the bearing disintegrates and the wheel flips about. I replaced with this from Matthew. https://type911shop.co.uk/epages/de867ca1-377e-432e-84fd-bdccf2206766.mobile/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/de867ca1-377e-432e-84fd-bdccf2206766/Products/2088 Took 15 mins to do and works great. No play at all. David
  5. I haven’t fitted to an IB but I did do an install of the Bluetooth 123 Tune on a friends Mk1 Jag. It was very easy to install and programme using an iphone. It worked fine from the start and has been reliable since. The only challenge was finding TDC (not that’s easy on an early XK motor) and working out the timing curves. Both should be easy on an IB. It replaced an unreliable Lucas distributor so the vast improvement in running was expected; there will be much less to notice with an SC. We were going to refine the curve as I set it quite conservatively but never have as it runs wel
  6. Hi Ian, i might not be understanding your measurements correctly (and I don’t know your specific model) but those control pressures seem way low. Cold pressures are specified at an ambient temp of 10, 25 and 40 degreesC. You will have measured at around 25, even clap cold, so I’d expect a cold CP around 2.4bar depending on WUR and a warm CP around 3.6bar? Are you sure you’re measuring correctly? The higher the control pressure the higher the AFR (i.e leaner), so your figures suggest mixture is over rich. System pressure is OK (I think ideal is you nearer the top of the range
  7. Yes, all good. Only very superficial damage to the 914 and I felt a wrong was righted. It was a point of principle for me and, seemingly, ERS who risked roughly the same as their initial loss in court/barrister fees. I had the advantage of truth, but still surprising. The accident data was changed to no-fault & full recovery without my having to chase (ClassicLine?) so credit where it’s due. David
  8. My own recent experience of ERS with a ClassicLine policy on my 914 was excellent. A car reversed into me having not left enough space for a lorry to come through a bottleneck with parked cars. I had no camera at the time and no witnesses. He just lied. ERS worked with me to source a hard to find moulding (Mittelmotor) and fixed the car at my chosen repairer. No damage to his towbar so the total claim was only £1400. ERS backed me and took the case all the way to county court. It took 3 years to get there but I got the judges decision and recovered my excess & costs along with their outlay
  9. Hi Ian, You’ve changed quite a lot and disturbed even more so I would start with the basics and rule out issues in a systematic way. First would be to check your system/ control pressure to make sure there isn’t a more fundamental issue with the new lines and filter. This would then point to an air leak or issue with the newly installed injectors. Spraying WD40 around suspect areas can be really helpful to temporarily seal leaks and isolate problems. Are you sure the injectors are sealing correctly? David
  10. Nice work John. Very happy to support. Thanks David
  11. I passed my test in my dad’s 1100 mk1 into which I dropped a 1600 crossflow. I still have this motor at the back of my garage. It probably needs a refresh after 35 years. David
  12. Looks great John - I don’t think I’ve seen a blue Monster before but I much prefer it to red. Nice buy and good for a little fun. David
  13. Great to see everyone. Worked out fine. David
  14. Will be there around 7-45 ish. See you later. David
  15. I recently used the furniture clinic colouring balm to recolour a cream BMW interior that had faded badly and unevenly. I had best results by mixing ivory and cream to the correct shade and building coats up. The only issue I had was that until you fix the colour using a spray sealer, applying a new coat lifts the previous ones if you’re not very careful. The end result was very presentable. I wouldn’t use for a full recolour but to address localised areas it worked fine. David
