    Re: How do you mount a Facet fuel pump?

    If the '67 is the same as a '74, there are two studs for mounting the fuel pump. One is on the sheetmetal that is 90* to the bulkhead. You can make a mount out of a piece of flat stock and mount...

    Re: Better than cardboard?

    Does that HF folding pad slide so you can slide and maneuver under the car?

    Re: Adding a third brake-light

    Here is another idea. I didn't want to drill holes in the car or clamp a light to the boot lid, and I don't have a roll bar or luggage rack. I found these very bright LEDs at Superbrightleds.com. ...

    Re: Anyone heard of an Innocenti Sprite?

    Here's one I saw at a GOF in Florida earlier this year. Was very nice, but they wouldn't let it onto the show field since it wasn't British, or maybe wasn't MG. Not sure of the politics, but I...
  5. Re: Finding an accurate tyre pressure gauge?

    Check out summitracing.com. They have pages and pages of gauges, all types, pressure ranges, and prices, including a Milton pencil gauge for $5.97! I have the JOES Racing gauge, and it seems to...
  6. Re: Chasing Squeaks and Groans - Stabilizer Bar for starters

    If you have poly bushings in the swaybar and didn't grease them, they can squeak like crazy. There is a specific, very thick grease used for that. 49779
  7. Re: Tips for installing intake manifold plugs in a stock Bugeye?

    Maybe peen them after installing (if that is the correct term) to help keep them in. I've heard of people doing this to the freeze plugs in the block.
  8. Re: First show of the year - and a diagnostic question.

    Original electronic ignition? If that is the Opus unit that is on the B's, I heard they are complete garbage. The factory had so many problems with them that they eventually put GM Delco modules in...

    Re: Squeak Squeak!

    If it squeaks when you go over bumps, and you have an ARB with poly bushings, it could be the bushings need lubricating. Poly bushings can squeak like the dickens when dry. Well, maybe not that...

    Re: 5 speed gear shift lever

    Rut, why the attachment to a piece of chromed steel rod? :fat: Esp. since it will be covered by a boot? But, I see no reason why you can't weld the top of your shifter to the lower part of the...

    Re: Two fuel pumps

    I also have two pumps, the original SU and a Facet, plumbed in series. The SU was rebuilt by Dave DuBois a few years ago and has not failed yet, but I do flip to the Facet occasionally just to make...

  14. Re: problems installing 1275/rivergate/datsun in BE

    I may have missed it in the discussion, but I'm surprised no one has mentioned cutting a small notch, or "V", in the front crossmember to allow the damper to clear. I've seen this mentioned before...

    Re: Engine breathing/leaks

    My anecdotal experience is that I don't think you can have too much venting. My 1275 has "active" neg. pressure as in Gerard's first picture, along with vented cap and small breather in the valve...

    Re: Datsun 210 Trans Question

    If you have a grease nipple in the U-joint, it could be hitting the tunnel, although if only in 4th and 5th gear, may not be your problem.

    Re: Quickjack

    Another great idea, but, wow, very expensive. And, not even hydraulic - its powered by a drill. But, that may not be all bad. Problem is that the support is 60" long, which is very close to the...

    Rut, I was very interested in that unit. It looked pretty nice if you don't have room for a lift. But, I think there is one small problem. With the support brackets lowered and pushed between the...

    Here is Dave's website, some good information there: https://userwebs.donobi.net/sufuelpumps/

  23. Re: Crane XR700 electronic ignition, now FAST XR700.

    Maybe when its dry and running well, you could take a small spray bottle of water and spray different potential parts to see if it starts to run bad? Doing it in the dark would be even more fun!

    Re: Facet pump died

    Seems like Facets are generally reliable, but even the most reliable pumps will die at some point. If you decide that it is, in fact, the pump, why not an SU pump rebuilt by Dave DuBois? I've been...
