    nooo..... i'm a firm believer in 'better the devil you know'
    after putting up with me for nearly 26 years she deserves to go out once or twice a year after all
    (if the wife comes into the living room from the kitchen and asks a question, what do you think? the chain's too long, of course )
    oh, i nearly forgot i've been buying again. i don't want to skimp on either the fuel or ignition systems so today i bought an earomotive A1000 carburetted bypass fuel pressure regulator, part number 13204. i got it now as at £100 new and still in it's packaging it is a bargain. i will of course be using an a1000 pump to match, we'll see if i can snag a bargain on one of those too. the parts pile is getting larger and just like the regulator does with boost my smile gets bigger on a 1:1 ratio with each increase.
    neil.

    today i offered up a back wheel to see how much tyre i can fit under the arches. the 205 60 15 is tight on the arch, it'll clear with a slight dressing up of the lip. i do have a good pair of 195 65 15 goodyear's so i'll get them fitted tomorrow along with the pair of 165 15's for the front. the pcd adapters have an m12 x 1.25 fine thread and we don't keep lugnuts that thread in the 11/16" shank size the weld wheels are. we do keep them with a 3/4" shank so i've ordered a 3/4" drill bit off of ebay and i'll open the holes in the wheels to suit. i tried an 11/16" shank nut of a different thread and it's quite a sloppy fit in the holes anyway, i'm happier having a better fitting shank (ooer missus) so it's all good.

    i had the tyres swapped around today and got the lugnuts from work. oh, and the 3/4" drill bit arrived too. tomorrow i'll drill the shiny wheels and get them bolted up with the pcd adapters. i could have left the stock wheels on for the summer but 'a' they needed tyres which meant spending money i could put towards a fuel pump and 'b' wheels transform the look of a car and i had them and the tyres so.....
    anyway look, shiny . mmmmmmmm.....
    oh, and i've got shiny pointy bullet centre caps too, but you'll have to wait to see them 'cos it's raining between here and my garage and i've only got my slippers on .

    this evening i drilled the wheels for the larger shank lugnuts and fitted the. well, 2 anyway. the studs from work which were the closest we have are too big for the holes in the axle flange. so i'll be getting new l/h thread nuts then, doh!. still the o/s looks cool .

    been out the garage for an hour to check the lights, can't finish the wheels 'til the l/h wheelnuts are sorted. anyway the n/s rear side marker had a dirty earth, sorted and the o/s front indicators didn't work. the lens is a long thin thing between the bottom of the grill and the bumper, set right back where it's a ****er to get to. i fiddled it off without dropping it and wiggled the bulb out with my finger tips. all good so put that back, er no not with my fat sausage fingers. so now the whole light unit is off and i'm checking wiring. no feed from the loom to the light wiring plug. so next stop the bulkhead plug, nothing there either. so under the dash on my back, not so bad as no carpet and the floors clean so i can slide in and out pretty easy. last stop the column plug and we have life. so to check the light itself i looped a wire out of the door from the column to the light and it works as does the repeater on the wingtop. so my next job will be unplug all the bulkhead connectors and give them a bloody good clean and lube. unfortunately as of tomorrow evening i'm off to the kitcar show with work 'til monday night, doh!
