I'm in for the LONG HAUL... :<)

Recommended Posts

I have now modified the Vac Gauge to suit connection to my Inlet, using std 4mm pipe.

I forced a steel nipple into the main body with a piece of old Morris 1000 dizzy rubber elbow (never throw anything away!)

Here is the new 4mm red silicone pipe I will re-do my carb and dizzy with (nice tight fit onto the gauge)

Quite the spaghetti twizzle, all the old rubber hose. I still have to do under the carb!

I have fitted the dizzy cap/leads & rotor.

Need to check timing and clean/tune carb......

I found this vid...

Very interesting the fact we have a 'water jacket link', flowing under the carb to aid warming/anti icing,  but [I imagine] should you remove the carb/upgrade, then antifreeze will well up and down into your inlet....

None of the 'fit a Weber upgrade' vids refer to this circumstance, though 🤔

A little dab'll do ya OK.... I'm starting to get a bit paranoid over *potentially slightly 'frilly' nether regions.... I have bodywax/internal preserver but this stuff will be under the floors, sills and all suspension steelwork 😃

YaY..... FerPrime BLACK Rust Converter arrived today!

I was wondering if I might stretch my tub a little, as my purchase is 500g.

"FerPrime Black can be thinned down with water if required, to enable its use in spray equipment. The amount of water that should be added will depend on the type of spray equipment being used."

Well.... That makes me feel SO much better 🙂

*a 20% dilution, on my first application [decanted into a narrow neck container] will give me some confidence.
