Re: Timing issues?

Points closing sounds like the securing screw is not gripping and it gradually closes with engine rotation. There should be one or two thin washers in there I believe.

As to setting points, one of the things I still do imperial for: 15 thou which is just a smidge over 0.4mm

Re: New radio in my car

No problem, just remember, that's what was fitted in my car, certainly never changed since '91 so I'm just assuming original fitment.

Well you are the only one looking in the metal. I have a Riviera Blue car, and have never seen a picture anywhere near to its true colour, so all sounds good.

New radio in my car

Just a quick post showing the new radio in my 412LS. It was one recovered and now reused from the old gentlemans garage sale earlier this month. Fits in nicely, looks period, but it taok a bit of fettling to get it to fit. I think the 412 dash is a bit thicker than Blaupunkt intended. Some temporary...

Many thanks Kai, your comments echo my instincts - off to research my master cylinder options
Why ?

If you are on standard parts, then no reason why the MC wouldn't work properly on your car, assuming it is not faulty.

Re: Brake Problem

I seem to remember of people having issues with new MC (from Machine 7), but not sure if it was on here or on the T25 site. I have certainly heard tell of new rear drums for the T25 not being round, quite recently. From your description the issue is not one of pressure, it is one of flow. With the c...
