Satfold Barn Classic show

Been to Statfold Barn classic show today. It’s in Tamworth. What a great place, steam railway, museum, a super venue. It would be a good place for a club display in the future

Re: OIL THERMOSTAT FITTING TO MINI ERA TURBO

Done 3 trips to car shows and the oil thermostat seems to be working fine. I got the temperature to 80 degrees on the sump gauge while the oil cooler gauge didn’t rise at all so the thermostat is doing its job. I am very pleased with the results and happy my oil is reaching a good working temperatur...

Re: OIL THERMOSTAT FITTING TO MINI ERA TURBO

I overhauled the stat (see other post). I took the car out the other day. The ambient temperature was about 12 degrees. I did about 30 miles. The gauge didn’t get past 50 deg. (It starts at 50) the other gauge I have connected to the sump had started to rise off it’s stop but it’s first increment is...

MOCAL OIL THERMOSTAT OVERHAUL

I got the service kit from mocal. Excellent service from them. Less than 24hours from placing the order. I took the stat off the car and took it apart. It is a very simple bit of kit. Both halves of the casting look to be exactly the same so I dont think it can be put together wrongly. The new kit h...

Re: OIL THERMOSTAT FITTING TO MINI ERA TURBO

Not run the car much last year as we all have been less active on the classic car scene. When I did have the ERA out I still have an issue with the oil temp. The temperature gauge I fitted to the sump gives me the same reading as the oil cooler gauge. So is the thermostat I fitted actually working? ...

GAZ Adjustable Shock Absorbers

I fitted GAZ shock absorbers in the rebuild. So they went on the road in 2013. Towards the end of 2019 I found when I went over a very slight uneven road surface the car hit it as though the suspension was solid. It went BANG!. I racked my brains and thought of all possibility’s something lose, some...
