Re: looking for an Interceptor

Welcome in the club Jean-P.
Looks like an early MkIII, right? I am sure the car will keep you busy - either by surfing in the JOC-forum or driving or wrenching in the workshop. In any case good leisure time.
Have fun

Re: Heads off or engine removal

i pulled the transmission for an overhaul and let the engine in situ - so not exactly your task. IF i remember right reaching the bellhousing bolts was quite manageable from under the car with a couple of combined 1/2" socket extensions up to about 1 meter length. Than we could reach over the t...

Whow - the tread comes alive after nearly ten years. Nice picture showing Vicky in a Jensen with an old german export license plate.

Re: Any Weber DATR experts in here?

Hi Per,
that sounds very reasonable - so butterfly position seems to be ok. On the other hand 7% CO are definitely too much as you mention. Any changes in fuel delivery like new fuel pump? Do you see any "dripplets" when looking into the carb with idling engine (aircleaner off)?

Re: Any Weber DATR experts in here?

Hi Per, i had a DMTR (manual choke version of DATR) on my Fiat Ritmo85 some 100 years ago - but unfortunately i can´t remember any details. Generally i would suggest to check the butterfly opening/butterfly stop at idle conditions. Maybe it is too wide open so that the idle system is not working eff...

Re: Zombie 133 5709

Hi John, really an impressive restauration effort with nice results. Regarding your engine i was surprised to see a waterpump housing with an outlet to the driver side of an LHD car. Maybe this is a feature of these early 440s as your car seems pretty unmolested ? I thought Jensen typically used Chr...
