    Re: Pinto Engine In Bugeye

    TC, saw your post on another forum, This one hasn't modified the bonnet apparently because the engine has been moved so far back. Don't remember if yours retains the heater.

    Re: Alternator help - please.

    JP, I'm guessing, like everyone else, but that noise doesn't sound like something that could be coming from inside the engine. Still if I had a 1500 I would check for crank end play to see if it was...

    Re: Alternator help - please.

    Just got around to listening to the vid. Could the fan on the alternator be loose? I believe that they are held in place just by tightening the nut and nothing else. Sounds like that or perhaps the...

    Re: replace shocks in pairs?

    I think that if you can do a careful comparison of the shock action from one side to the other that that would determine whether they all need replacement. When I got my Mk3 Sprite the front right...

    Re: Trying to find an accurate tyre pressure gauge

    Googled Milton and they are pretty proud of being made in the USA. All I know about them is that they have been making tire tools for all my adult life. I always liked them and go out of the way to...

    Re: Alternator help - please.

    I guess first I would see if there is any play in it but the only way to be sure would be to remove the fan and clutch. Maybe just removing the fan would stop it from making the noise and that would...

    Re: Alternator help - please.

    Do you still have a fan clutch? They are notorious for failing. I you are removing the belt the pump and fan wouldn't be turning would it?

    Re: electrical short wiring damage

    Just turning the switch on would not have caused a problem if a dead short didn't exist some where. You will have to assess how much damage there is and how to repair it by cutting open the loom. My...

    Pegasus site makes it look as if dropping the F number by 2 might be worth a try. The warnings were right....I'm wracking up a expensive collection of jet's.

    Dcoe????

    I'm hoping there are still some Weber DCOE GuRu's on here.:rolleye:

    Anyway, I want to lean my idle jet slightly. Currently a 50-F8. Should I drop the orifice size [50] or the air correction [F8]?...

    Re: Bugeye electrical questions

    On my other Spridgets I have fitted small skeleton framed alternators. I like the ones from a Ford Festiva. A generator on the BE sounds like a good idea if they still have the tach drive.

    Local used car lot had a Morris Minor on a pole for decades. Heard it was taken down and restored. Hope so....from underneath it looked like a pretty solid car.

    I have several 4.22's and now have a pretty good idea of what they are worth. Also 3.7s. With a strong 1275 in a BE they work for high speed cruising.

    Re: alternator eater

    If you are burning up wires you have a short. If things just stop you might have just a bad connection. Ice pick continuity testers are cheap.
