Re: I presume this can’t be registered....

The bracket appears to stick out a long way for the side screen retention. However maybe during the driver swaps on long distance races they need a big enough guide to ensure that the side screen goes in smoothly upon shutting the door quickly.

Re: I presume this can’t be registered....

True enough if you have that level of spending power on a recreational car a few more grand to sort it out is pocket money. Mind you if I were spending that sort of money I would expect the wipers to park properly and they seem to have an issue with the nearside headlight adjustment. Look how one ed...

Re: I presume this can’t be registered....

I think that there would be a significant number of mods needed to get through the IVA. Modifying an Ali body is not so easy for changing the light fittings and that’s before you start on the dash plus give the engine a catalyst.
Not a cheap way to get a Cobra on the road.

Re: Big block Cobra for sale

Hi Lee, I can remember discussions on what was correct or not for your standard road version of a 427.
I do hope you can get your price bearing in mind the chaotic situation at present.
Can we ask what the new project is?

Re: Fuel line longevity

Thanks for the info Roger.
I think I will over the coming months investigate the thread types in readiness. Certainly can’t assume that they are BSP but most likely a mixture.

Re: Fuel line longevity

I guess we are all going to need to change the fuel lines sometime in the next year or certainly before the E10 is forced on us. Roger, how did you get over the non original bling look of the red & blue anodised fittings. Just use the black ones? We will need to check all the connecting threads e.g....

Re: Black Swan Sunday 9th August

Hi Andy, I didn’t know about that one but as I have just got my exhaust back on it might be a good local trip to test all is well as I expect to get an MOT next week. I might not make 9.30 but prepared to go and see how the crowds behave themselves. I confess I’m still very nervous of people who don...

Re: Edelbrock Performer erratic water temperature

Sorry Tony I don’t see the difference between the two of them. The bigger/ heavier end of the jiggle it still the thermo actuator side of the thermostat.The heavy end of the jiggle ensures it will be angled down to allow the air to pass. I don’t think the pin would prevent the flow of air whilst fil...

Re: brake bleedingHi

Clive, you are of course correct which goes to show I obviously haven’t used that method on the Cobra. Thankfully I haven’t needed to undertake repairs and have only needed to remove the reservoir contents re fill with fresh at the start of bleeding through new fluid to change the entire contents. P...

Re: brake bleedingHi

Before starting you can remove the respective reservoir lld and place a piece of plastic over the reservoir and then replace the lid. This stops the draining down of the reservoir fluid in case you don’t possess a proper hose clamp. Do not use mole grips on the flexible. You should be able to follow...
