Projects > J-H hillclimb and AX project (43 replies - 37587 views)

A bit more progress today. Here's the damage to the tranny tunnel done by the driveshaft 'explosion'. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v248/jensenman/driveshaftdamagecloseup.jpg I put off fixing that until the powerplant ...   08-30-2009 02:23 am

Projects > J-H hillclimb and AX project (43 replies - 37587 views)

Commence boredom as I show the latest. :-D Instrument panel. Still some tidying up to do and I need to add aluminum sheet on both sides. ...   08-21-2009 11:36 pm

Suspension > subframe question (9 replies - 9266 views)

It does appear that the right 'arm' is bent and that is part of the subframe. The good thing: the subframe is mounted in rubber ...   06-24-2009 06:22 pm

Suspension > subframe question (9 replies - 9266 views)

Sounds like you are talking about the lower control arm. This goes from the crossmember under the spring and to the steering knuckle. If so, ...   06-22-2009 09:25 pm

Engine & Transmission > Mounts a 907 lotus engine in my jensen healey (5 replies - 4941 views)

The two small lines are vacuum lines to the heater controls and are 1) a supply which connects to the intake manifold and 2) the ...   06-22-2009 09:08 pm

Suspension > subframe question (9 replies - 9266 views)

The strut rods have a bend in them for tire clearance, that's normal. They should come out pretty easily; there's two large nuts on the subframe ...   06-21-2009 11:47 pm

Projects > Project finished at last (8 replies - 8030 views)

My, but that's pretty. Very nice work! ...   06-21-2009 11:40 pm

Carburetors > Z-S Carbs - "Choke" and fuel/air adjustment (8 replies - 7546 views)

http://www.autoexpertproducts.com/images/ColortuneBlueFlame.JPG Something which helps a lot on Z-S carbs: http://www.autoexpertproducts.com/colortune-14mm.htm That and the mixture adjustment tool mentioned earlier make life a lot easier. ...   05-28-2009 12:41 pm

Projects > J-H hillclimb and AX project (43 replies - 37587 views)

This car has been pretty well gutted so I am not real sure about the f/r distribution right now. Nothing scientific, but my wheel spring ...   05-27-2009 12:33 pm

Projects > J-H hillclimb and AX project (43 replies - 37587 views)

Progress so far: the rear axle and all suspension links are completed and installed, the clutch and throttle cable linkage and installation are complete, the ...   05-27-2009 01:55 am

Engine & Transmission > Pulling a 5 speed (6 replies - 4500 views)

The transmission will come off of the bellhousing. Easiest way:  take the console out and remove the nut which holds the rear of the shift ...   05-22-2009 07:12 pm

Suspension > Oversteer (19 replies - 11257 views)

I have the pre-Superpro bushings in the rear of my car, they were made as a two piece split bushing. Those just about jumped in ...   05-20-2009 06:52 pm

Suspension > Oversteer (19 replies - 11257 views)

The J-H's rear suspension link geometry is set up to give roll understeer, yet the car will oversteer. That means there's something else that causes ...   05-20-2009 01:47 pm

Ignition > Distributor Falling Out... (8 replies - 7847 views)

Yes, the drive dog on the back of the oil pump is spring loaded. I guess that keeps it from rattling! If you loosen all ...   05-20-2009 01:12 pm

Body & interior stuff > Door rattle (6 replies - 4047 views)

That's the 'pinch weld' where the inner and outer body members are joined together. It's doubtful they are bent. It's easy to check, though; pull the weatherstrip ...   05-12-2009 09:56 pm

Body & interior stuff > Door rattle (6 replies - 4047 views)

Bad weatherstrips will definitely cause a door rattle. When the outside of the door is even with the rear fender, the weatherstrip should be contacting ...   05-12-2009 07:44 pm

Engine & Transmission > Redline oil (1 reply - 2707 views)

Redline's stuff is thin compared to the old stinky stuff, yeah. But it seems to work. That's what I run in my rotary Spitfire's RX7 limited ...   05-03-2009 12:21 am

Engine & Transmission > Changing motor mounts? (6 replies - 5285 views)

The exhaust header is probably catching on the steering shaft (I assume your car is left hand drive). If you loosen the steering shaft pinch ...   05-01-2009 09:37 pm

Engine & Transmission > Supra conversions (6 replies - 7751 views)

It's possible. That short shift kit moves the pivot up from the stock position and should cut the 'throws' considerably. Only way to find out ...   04-30-2009 09:08 pm

Engine & Transmission > Trans Swap Options (21 replies - 13970 views)

Actually, getting the bellhousing was (for me) one of the easiest parts of the whole project. I got mine from lotusbits as well. Steve, how are you ...   04-30-2009 02:44 am

Engine & Transmission > Trans Swap Options (21 replies - 13970 views)

Fatfingers, double post. Oops. ...   04-29-2009 06:56 pm

Engine & Transmission > Trans Swap Options (21 replies - 13970 views)

I ran into the same thing, I think Conversion Components has either quit with the J-H kits or has gone out of business. That's why I ...   04-29-2009 06:56 pm

Miscellaneous > Progress on Ron's old J-H IT car (4 replies - 6581 views)

Some more progress: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v248/jensenman/rearshockmountinsidetrunk.jpg This is a reinforcement of the upper shock mounts inside the trunk. The bottom of the 'triangle' is welded to a 'box' which ...   04-29-2009 12:55 am

Ignition > idle speed chnages when brakes applied (3 replies - 4461 views)

It shouldn't. It's not hard to check, you should be able to blow through it towards the intake but not the other way. The valve ...   04-28-2009 10:04 pm

Ignition > idle speed chnages when brakes applied (3 replies - 4461 views)

The brake vacuum booster probably has a leak. When you push the brake pedal, this opens a vacuum valve inside the booster so that engine ...   04-28-2009 01:02 pm

Ignition > Crane XR3000 ignition (27 replies - 21053 views)

That will depend on the type of vacuum capsule you have. An 'advance' type has no vacuum at idle, this is the type where the ...   04-27-2009 09:01 pm

Suspension > DMS front sway bar... (1 reply - 2754 views)

Not all cars had the mount points for the links welded to the control arms, so those are included just in case. As far as ...   04-23-2009 02:02 pm

Fuel Stuff > Sending Unit Sealing (3 replies - 5236 views)

There's not much out there that will seal gasoline which will still allow later removal. Hylomar or Loctite 518 *might* work but I kinda doubt ...   04-23-2009 02:00 pm

Brakes > TR6 Master/TR7 caliper combo (8 replies - 8873 views)

Sorry if it came across that way. I get a little wound up about that situation; I have seen far too many people single flare ...   04-21-2009 01:19 pm

Brakes > TR6 Master/TR7 caliper combo (8 replies - 8873 views)

I DETEST flaring brake lines. To do it properly it must be double flared (a single flare is unsafe at brake pressures and will not ...   04-20-2009 12:31 pm

Ignition > Crane XR3000 ignition (27 replies - 21053 views)

BTW, about the resistor: the control box should have +12V at all times. The ignition coil will vary; some require +6 volts regardless of the ...   04-14-2009 12:22 am

Ignition > Crane XR3000 ignition (27 replies - 21053 views)

There's two types of advance: vacuum and mechanical. The vacuum capsule is one of two types: it either advances the ignition timing when you open the ...   04-13-2009 09:05 pm

Ignition > Crane XR3000 ignition (27 replies - 21053 views)

If the exhaust got that hot, it tells me the timing was seriously retarded. Assuming the engine still runs smoothly, I'd say the powerplant will ...   04-13-2009 01:21 pm

Ignition > Crane XR3000 ignition (27 replies - 21053 views)

On mine, I painted a line on the dizzy body with White Out which lined up with the #1 wire tower on the cap. I ...   04-10-2009 12:17 pm
