    I got an 'early' Xmas gift, from SWMBO, of £30 Amazon cards [so I can choose something and have it before 25th]. I have popped for a pair of Ring +130 H4 bulbs @15.99 The lights I have are good enough but I think these might be just a little sharper. AutoExpress mag rates them very highly.. we will see! (better) 😅 My Vacuum Gauge plopped thru the post just the other day so some 'tune-up' action is on the horizon.... 2sav

    Hi all, just a quick introduction

    Not quite.... It stayed with its original owner for about 18yr, who gave up driving and passed it on to the service tech at the local dealership... Tech kept it for the remainder but moved it on, as he wanted an auto cos of bad knee... Bit of 'for sale', card in window / on the side of the road, action and it came to me.. [through a serial - old car rescuer] 😇 2sav

    I have just seen this picture on ToyotaNation and am curious.. It is a magnetic reed-switch and, from the description of the assembly of the speedo cable drive, a magnetic drum provides a pulse which is used to drive the 'needle deflection' for speed read out. Are there lots of speedos using an electronic modulator? Why not an old-skool drag/coilspring... Better accuracy eh? 2sav

    I have bought a 50MM size Vac gauge, off Amazon £3.70 inc post! Anyone had any success tuning their carb using 'mercury vacuum' as the setting? Some webbie opinions favour the 'true vac', by gauge, over 'setting by ear' - listening to the engine stumble - as an indicator ?? Where do we stand on this ? And which pipe does anyone use for the *steady manifold vac? .... *The pipe for the dizzy advance is 'ported' so not ideal for this. 2sav

    Fair enough 👍 You have NOTHING REMOTELY like this in the tank... You don't have a large securing ring.... You don't have a high pressure/'depress the clip' fuel line connector ?? If you aren't running the car/have the tank open/loose bits kicking about.... Some pictures of your tank 'sender'?? Does you engine look anything like this... ?? 2sav
