Re: 115/3484 Restoration

The block came back from South Cerney Engineering yesterday, rebored to 30 thou over. They spotted some dimpling on the deck surface so 6 thou was skimmed off, necessitating a minor rethink of the head gasket selection in order to maintain static CR below 9.8:1.

Re: 115/3484 Restoration

Pre- and post-refurb dyno testing results for the Selectarides below. One of the dampers was not functioning at all (the blue line in the top graph), as the adjuster had come adrift, while the other was not functioning properly because of debris in the piston valve. Post refurb both dampers are work...

Re: 115/3484 Restoration

Just heard from LEDA Suspension that my Selectarides are now restored and fully functional (both hydraulics and electrics). Excellent service from Roger and the LEDA team, who provided an extraordinary level of technical detail during the refurb process and answered all my questions. Before... E1AA2...

Re: Possible South West Tour 2021 (Devon / Cornwall)

Hi John

I'd certainly hope to be there assuming my Interceptor restoration has been completed.

Best,

Re: Forum search issue

Yes the search function is back to normal now, thanks Zac and Raj for sorting this! Still not entirely sure how to replicate a Google-type search for a phrase within inverted commas. For example a search for "Lockheed drum" will return results for "Lockheed", "drum", an...

115/3484 Restoration

Dear All The restoration of 115/3484 is gathering momentum. The work is being done by Chris Marsh Classics near Chippenham (that's Marsh as in Marcos) with strategic guidance from Paul Lewis, former owner of the car and all-round top bloke. The bodywork was done by Colin Holley a few years back, so ...

Re: Inlet/exhaust port matching - worth it?

What do you think an optimum quench height is? I’m nearly ready to press the go button on my 383 rebuild - 438 stroker with the original 906 heads. The 440Source pistons have a compression height of 1.320”. My block has not been decked as far as we can tell (stock pistons are within 0.005” of the de...

Re: Paint formula

Hi Andy I got the formulation in the image below from a JOC member in Germany who restored a Mk1 Interceptor in tangerine about 15 years ago. He had a hidden area of paint spectrophotometrically analysed to give the formulation. Interestingly, it looks less red than the exposed area and the paint co...
