Nice car.
Not jealous at all at the lack of rust.
Or the obvious skills being deployed on such small areas :)

Re: Low rev stutter under load

Was the tank re-coated on the inside - more likely to be corrosion on the inside of the tank than pipes, especially if the car has been stored for a while with little fuel in it.

Re: How to measure rpm with multimeter

You can measure at whatever speed you like, but I wouldn't make any adjustments until the car is properly warm. Once warm idle is smack on, them just check that cold idle is somewhere near. 1000 rpm would seek quite OK to me. By the way, I have recently taken delivery of a tachometer for fitting to ...

Re: How to measure rpm with multimeter

Do you think you are getting more than one spark affecting the inductive pickup?

336 x 10 = 3360, but then divide by 4 and you get 840 rpm

Just an idea, 840 rpm would seem a bit slow rather than fast to me

The URL needs to be encased in opening [ img] and closing [ /img] tags. ( without the space after the [ )

You can type those manually or click on the third icon from the right above

Broady as well has run the gauntlet on this too. Lots of info there,

and pics too, which are better than thousands of words.
Ah yes, that was one of the ones I was thinking of but I wasn't sure which of the "blue type 3" avatars it was.Great thread.

Re: Fresh Air Box

Have a search of the forum, there's quite a few threads with pictures showing what type of repair might be needed. I know Chino and Kaddy did theirs, but there are others too.

The perception seems to be that they're always worse than thought

Re: Low rev stutter under load

Sounds like it could be an excessive gap on the plugs. Do you know if the points were checked prior to adjusting the timing ?

Re: Trying to get in touch with Kembiff

If it's still in the outbox then he hasn't read the message yet. Kembiff was leaving as I joined so I don't know him personally.

You'll need to see if any of the longer term members know him and can contact through other routes, I'm a newbie at 5 years :)

Re: 1963 square back

I think we're on the same page Broady - I agree current over the bulb and motor will be the same, I was simply starting at the motor end to determine the current draw as motors are generally rated in Watts, without stating current draw. The other way is that the wattage of the bulb/resistor needs to...

Re: 1963 square back

Don't you need to know the wattage of the motor, and using volts get the current the motor requires. The resistor in series (AKA brake bulb) then needs to handle that same current so that the voltage is split equally between motor and resistor. Unfortunately it gets more complicated with a two speed...
