The wheels are a great touch to a fantastic little motor.

Dead jealous of Poole.

Well, She certainly goes well but will start to miss at about 80mph. Also there is a strainge pulsing niose from the engine noticably above 60mph. :?

Noticed today that she is also burning a bit of oil too. :(

Damn bugger blast. Looks like I am going to have to pull out the engine :x

I have a spare engine is the scrap car but its an unknown and is minging dirty too. If I do change the engine I might as well change the box too as that has a nasty whining noise coming from it in all gears except 4th.

If I am going this far I may as well strip the whole damn thing a give it a good re furb and respray in the original green, then transplant the Piazza 2.0i Turbo into it and then Fit new carpets.

Oops - I posted in the wrong topic by accident. Anyways I said:

"Yup, excellent work there Mark but I reckon you were right when you said she needs to sit down over them a little more, particularly at the back. About 35mm I reckon."

Then Steve said:

"yes i agree you need to get the bum down a bit and she'll look meatier......"

Then Mark said the above... again.

The Alloys are Compomotive's but I do not know what model / cast they are.

Tried all place to find out but have drawn a blank. Not seen any like these for years.

just been looking in an old car magazine, Fast Car August '91, and they look very similar to Compomotive's Modular wheel

Dead image

but further investigations into the Modular range has shown me they are either 2 or 3 piece wheels.
the only CL type i could find were these

Thanks for all your efforts Herbie, but it is still not clear what they are. I have sent an E-mail to Compomotive with a big pic of my wheels asking for more info on them. Just have to wait and see what they come back with if anything?

Done a fare bit of tinkering on the green machine of late. I have changed the front calipers, brake hoses pads and master cylinder and changed the rear shoes and hose, as that had collapsed too. Now the brakes work..

Also changed the water pump as that is what was making the pulsing noise ast about 60. Detailed the front lights and badge, also made better brackets for the 100w spot lights fitted new shocks all round.

New dizzy cap, plugs, leads and adjusted the points and mixture, oiled the alternator bearings, done an oil and filter change, adjusted the tappets and fitted 80w/100w bright headlight bulbs and green LED backlights to the instrument pod.

She now starts on the button, drives very well handles well and can stop too.

So now all that is done I am ready for the Newbury classic car show on 19th Feb 2006.

See ya there?

The water pump pulsing, did it sound as if someone had left a set of keys on the slam panel, which rattle between 50 - 60 mph? Because that's what my car was doing last time I drove it. I thought it was a bit of timing chain slap, but from your description it may well not be.
