Re: How much FURFLEX is required

Just to point out that SNG usually attend the spares day and usually give a 10% discount and take the item to the show so no delivery charges either.

Re: Carburettor air intakes

Has your car been modified to have 2" carbs? Ram pipes tend to only have a mesh unless a 'sock' is fitted so there is little filtration. If you are after some benefit then I would look at K&N filter units which tend to offer better breathing.

Re: Holes appearing in underseal

Just ensure there is no loose underseal, then reapply your favourite underbody protection. I use Dinitrol 3125 on my Jag to good effect as it has creep properties, is black and seems to last but I do not use my car in the very worst of weather.

Re: Master Brake Cylinder

Sorry to hear that. Usually club members pretty good. Brian Reid and Ken Jenkins are identified as the people giving technical advice for your car but the specialist for bodywork is Keith Parrington.

Re: Master Brake Cylinder

Just thought if you were in the UK there are a few places that could help. Have you contacted the club's technical advisors as they may be able to help with the specifics of the Mk X etc?

Re: JNH664F Are you still alive??

Are you looking for help in Norfolk or London or does it matter where? In addition is it mainly bodywork or mechanical bits or everything you want help on?

Re: Master Brake Cylinder

Hi, I am unsure why the master cylinder would cause such a problem as usually it leaks and then the system depressurises and the pedal goes further to the floor. If the cylinder/brake pedal goes back to its usual position then why do you suspect it? In addition if it was the master cylinder why don'...

Re: Master Brake Cylinder

There could be other things causing the brake situation. Sticking pistons at the callipers, soft flexible pipes acting like a one way valve, problems with the servo actuation. Allneed checking I would suggest before dismantling the master cylinder unless you see leaks etc.

Re: Garage Frost protection

I have never seen a house or garage that avoids humidity. What it might do is avoid condensation but I assume you have a concrete floor and a garage door and that in itself will ensure a certain level of humidity. Still if you are going to persue a heater just make sure it is an electric one as you ...

Re: Garage Frost protection

I have a condenser type dehumidifier which I bought new for less than £100 on a certain website. It has settings for humidity/timers etc and works very well. Theonly thing is that they do not work very well at lower temperatures but you would be amazed at how much water is collected but it certainly...

Re: 3.8 Ignition timing- position of rotor arm?

Thanks for responses. I do not have 123 Ignition, just a conversion inside the distributor. I started again with the ignition timing, setting TDC etc and found that after restting everything the problem did not appear. I did also dismantle the distributor and clean all parts so perhaps something was...

Re: Registering XK150 that has been off the road since 1974!

The club magazine identifies Keith Vincent as the lead contact for such matters so I would give him a go and see if he can help.
