"Why fit a VV James? First thing in the bin when tarting one's pinto was that carb. 32/36 DG(A)V or 38/38 DG(A)S Were always the preferred carb for the 2l. "

"It may also be possible to fit it rotated through 180 degrees in both directions and use the top bolt but i'm not sure."

Phaeton S3

"There is a nylon stop / bearing on both cables, mk 1 is smaller and a snug fit into the tube, mk2 won't go in unless the tube is cut and enlarged. The tube should be in a straight line with the pull direction from the pedal if that helps. If…"

Phaeton S3

"That sounds like the standard ford setup, you'll not be missing anything that end. Mk1 and MK2 cables are different. Where is goes into the bulkhead there is a nylon 'stop'. the mk 1 was only about 3/4 inch or less, the mk2 is twice…"

For those days when your parts just can't arrive quick enough, for sunny days when the transit just isn't 'fun'...

Project X...

Coming soon to a shed near me.

1997 DOHC, weber TC, MT75 box and Sierra fixed 3.72 diff in a Phaeton 3/4 hybrid.

I did some playing on gear calc and the theoretical stats look like this.…

Q835XSC - Dutton Legerra Series 2

IMAG0299

So, collected last weekend and the first chance I get to go over it we have snow / hail / rain and gales... lovely if your a penguin I guess...

Q835XSC purchased from the factory in 1988, completed in 1990, stored for the winter in 1991 and there it sat for 22 years, possibly one of the saddest Legerras I have ever seen apart from my black one.

It…

HPG128K - Dutton Sierra Series 2 - rescued from an early grave?

Sierra II

So the saga of the gearbox rear seal continues. When it had the rear crank seal done the garage also fitted a prop/tailshaft seal which promptly leaked just as badly as the one they took out.

When I had the horrible vibration issue it was coming from the prop not fitting into the gearbox. Thinking this might have damaged the bush inside the…

Hi Adrian

It would be ideal, but the timing is not on my side at the mo; the Wife is about to give birth to our first child in the next 3 weeks...

Also, you are the main reason I'm looking at a Dutton-I follow your threads over on Retro Rides, and its your Legerras that got me interested!

Cheers

Paul

Hi Adrian, yes - just up't road. I'm afraid it's time for mine to go...... Need the space. I haven't used it for 7 years. Fired it up recently though, needed a new fuel pump..... Hard to find.

Hi Adrian, thanks for your message. BHP isn't an issue. My car won't be used on a track. It's more reliability I'm after. The plan is once the car is road legal again, enjoy it for a year or two here and then ship it to North Cyprus where I have a villa and looking to stay there long term. X/flow parts may be a little more thin on the ground there and it's not so easy shipping parts there. What power plant are you using?

Arkwright's Dutton Breakers is in Bolton too so plenty of old dogs to rob bits off there Richard
