I have just made up some.....£40 per pair plus P&P.

Re: spark plugs

I am not sure I answered your question Jim. The W7AC is a "colder" plug, ie it is designed to work under harder conditions than the W8AC......I would run the W8AC in a normal 1600, and the W7AC in a 1834/2180cc, but it also depends on your compression ratio and how hard you run the engine,...

Re: mystery magneto

The dual Bendix magneto was a unit used on the Nippers, you will find a few Nippers with a box on the firewall that projects below the fuel tank which accommodated it........I have not seen one of these Ducelier magnetos before, but they will do the same job. Much better than the dual chain driven L...

Re: VW exhaust scheme

This is the later system I am currently working on, but I have not flight tested it yet, and suspect it is not good for noise. The photos do indicate the hot air pick up that I am promoting. If you have a stromberg of other fixed choke carb' then a good hot air supply is a must. This is a Mk1 versio...

Re: VW exhaust scheme

Hi Jim, Beware moving the engine forward " because I increased the length of my engine mounts by 3mm ", it will move your CofG forward. Adding weight to the tail is self defeating and adds to the moment of inertia of the a/c which can adversely affect spin recovery. It is quite feasible to...

Re: Nipper firewall

Hi Jim, The original closed cowlings were tight to the top of the firewall, and had about a 1" gap around the lower half except for where the cowling meets the nose leg. The green cowling fitting you are showing in your photo looks like a standard fitting, except it has been turned 90 deg so it...

Re: VW exhaust scheme

Hi Guys, I experimented with loads of different ex' systems as I was at a noise sensitive strip....the best solution is twin pipes, perforated at the end and 50% crimped, inside "cans" that were also perforated......picture attached. There are two designs here, the one with the red heat mu...

Re: SEV Fuel Pump, service or replace

Hi Guys, My two peneth: The Citroen 2cv uses is similar pump, it is low profile, in its assembled form the fuel pipes are in the wrong position, but I believe it is a simple operation to remove the top body and rotate it, the bolts are in an arrangement that will allow this. The QH pump has part pla...
