  8. Thoughts on the New Forum Layout?

    I agree its alot harder to find and follow things compared to the previous layout which I found far easier to navigate . I don't frequent the site as often now as it's more difficult to navigate to find and scroll through topics .

  10. Range Rover advice please

    I have the same problem with the drivers seat , move it and the SRS /Airbag light comes on ................ grab the yellow covered wire under the seat and wiggle the plug ...........that cures it .The front window, take it the bottom hold the button for a few seconds ,send it back up and it resets itself .
  11. Hi I'm looking for a serviceable barrel for a flying Flea . I've tried the usual suppliers , Hitchcocks had a second hand civi one but unfortunately half of the lip on the top has broken away . I thought about taking the top lip completely off and making a gasket out of copper sheet , warm it up cool it down and then it should compress enough and seal the head ? any thoughts on the above idea .............. I don't mind wether its a Civi barrel as I would ask Terry at Metal Magic to thread the exhaust manifold . Further investigation shows cracks in the base.Looking at the condition of the barrel and the cracks (shown in the photo )I would say the barrel would self destruct if a re bore was attempted ,or anyone know of a good engine shop that could fettle the barrel for me Any help would be much appreciated in tracking a barrel down as I'm trying to help a friend out . The head also had a large crack which I've managed to sort . Thanks Dave

    Additional info on the mystery holes , place your finger over the threaded hole you can actually feel it sucking. Going to block the hole off with a bolt and see what happens , cant find any info on the holes and it doesn't show anything in the parts book:undecided: .

    Had a big smile on my face John :-D ............... Have an other mystery to get to the bottom of. I noticed on the Carb a 3/16" threaded hole and an unthreaded hole on the opposite side on the choke block . I cant seem to find out what is supposed to fit into it .When I had been on the runout and stopped the engine I noticed wisps of smoke coming from the threaded hole :nut: . The photo's are of my spare carb , any thoughts on the mystery holes , maybe some sort of venting system ? Dave
