Timing problems

Having issues with Puma's timing. :roll: It keeps jumping on the advance/inlet side. It has played up before, was sorted and ran for a few weeks no problems but on a 6hr long round trip (in which it ran perfectly) right at the end it started suddenly running rough. Timing checked and it had jumped a...

FRP 591, FRP replica, plus turbo conversion project

Just went through this thread as not seen it before.... that's one pukka Puma. Fair play, it's taken a fair bit of skill, patience and not a few shekels from the look of it. Very impressive. :ok:

Hi Sinisa, Always in awe of the level of skill involved here.... which makes me all the more tickled pink you've given the Deox C a go too!

360719 Hi G-Whizz It might have been your thread where I picked up on Deox C stuff. Apologies for not giving you the credit for putting me onto this...

Dedicated Track Car Progress Thread

Used Deox-C a few months ago on some very rusty ST170 calipers (details in my thread) and thoroughly agree Stu. :ok: I was talking to Pete Hamber who said you could even just drop them in the solution 'whole' and it wouldn't affect the seals but I was doing a full recon anyway. It's great stuff, che...

360452 Cut the wires, use a 22mm impact socket and a breaker bar and swing on the bastard. That'll get it out. Hi TG, Funnily enough, that's EXACTLY the strategy I've settled on (with a Plusgas soak for good measure) as measured the sensor plug and realised I should just get a deep impact socket on...

360421 In case it's not obvious (tbh I'm never sure what is obvious to other people or not) in addition to just spraying a fixing with PlusGas, it's far more effective if you then soak a cotton pad or piece of kitchen roll in it and wrap that around the fixing and rubber band it. It acts like a min...

360410 1) Leave to soak overnight with plus gas. (GT85 is also very good at loosening rusted parts). 2) get manifold as hot as possible by running car until rad fan kicks in 3) try to undo, if it still won't budge , try doing it up clockwise until it moves, then undo. 4) I have used a very long 22m...

I need to replace my lambda for MOT but it's staging a sit-in, can't get it to move. It's the pre-cat and am using a 22mm lambda socket but it's so tight in there that when applying torque instead of loosening it's simply spreading the jaws on the socket & slipping off. Tried WD40 & also run...
