  1. Saw my first one yesterday. In Merivale, which is the Chelsea of this City.....
  2. I agree, but its possibly not on the side of the dizzy on a 98 disco. I think they had moved to the coil mounting bracket by then.
  3. Hi Rikk, as others have said, put a 3.9 in it. For what you would spend on the 3.5 its a no brainer although technically here in NZ you will need to get a cert for the increase in capacity. Whereabouts in NZ are you? Andy
  4. You can definitely just plug them. I did it about 2 years ago and oil pressure all good. Thread is M20 x 1.5 Andy
  5. I fitted a factory low pressure in tank pump to an under-seat tank about 11yrs ago as part of a twin tank setup. Extended the support leg at the bit where the factory slotted holes/2screws were and added a short piece of hose and solder/heatsrink to extend the leads. I just used a holesaw through the tank with 5 rivnuts around the hole. But I did put a sheetmetal reinforcing ring on the inside clamped by the rivnuts to stiffen it up. Fitted with a standard cork gasket. No leaks. About 2 years ago I swapped the LP pump for a HP when I went EFI/Megasquirt. The heatshrink did not seem to hav
  6. 1mm cutting disc in an angle grinder and lube with candle wax every minute or so (just cut into a candle with the wheel). Cuts aluminum like butter, does not clog/pick up on wheel and leaves a pretty tidy edge. Andy
  7. Stainless is typically used in very high temp applications, cooker elements etc where the temp would cause tinned copper to loose it's spring tension then arc and fail. They need a special crimper. Tinned copper is better unless ambient temp prevents it's use. Andy
  8. There is a method used widely in Australia and also popular here in NZ known as the 4psi rule. Basically you measure cold pressure, drive for 20-30mins or so and measure again warm. The pressure gain due to tyre carcass flex should be about 4psi. If more than 4psi increase, the starting pressure was too low. If less than 4psi increase the starting pressure was too high. Andy
  9. Does it lose water, blow water out header tank vent? Or just read high on gauge with no other symptoms? Andy
  10. Did you ever do this mod? Did the ford sensor work with Gems?? Andy
  11. Fuel tank breather clear and not blocked? Andy
  12. No sense of scale from pic but look like aircraft wheel chocs Andy
  13. Using "fixed map" sorted the first start of the day issue for me. I ended up with similar settings: Use fixed below 30deg Time period 8secs Fixed map value 50kpa Can start through the window from cold any time. Its a 3.9serp with ms1 and edis Andy
