Re: Interesting V8 Saloon - post edited

The eBay item is for the sale of a brochure, but KV8 has told me that he wished to encourage discussion and knowledge feedback of another Daimler Saloon using the Turner V8 that obviously nearly made it to market. He is not trying to promote the eBay sale so I have left a copy of this topic in the D...

Re: Dart spitting out dirt from exhaust

Thanks for that. When I got the car back from Phil Glennerster several years ago I thought it might be running a bit rich so I did weaken the mixture a tiny amount, but haven't adjusted it since. It's true the car only has short runs once a week of about 15 miles unless I take it to a show.

Dart spitting out dirt from exhaust

My dart engine is running superbly. I went for a run this morning and when I returned I revved the car on the drive to about 5000rpm and then noticed a lot of dirt on the ground.

Re: Engine woes. ! !

Hi Chaps, at long last I actually have a Petrol Gauge that works 😀😀😀 To be honest the Furl Gauge does waver when the car is in motion (Anybody got any ideas on how to dampen it down a bit) ?
