Re: A Californian drying out in South Africa

Where they have not been used for a considerable time, they may need lubricating, remove the arms so you can get some oil down the spindles and let them run for a while.

Re: What did you do to your Imp today?

Spent yesterday at a classic car meet at Worthing Rugby Club run by Sussex Car Club, very good show, mine was the only IMP among about 300 mixed classics from 20 s through to modern, spoke to another club member, didn`t recognise him immediately, apparently left his IMP at home. :o

Re: A Californian drying out in South Africa

As I said above, the breather pipes in the same area, although they look ok, they may not leak but they may be just as porous, fumes may be leaking out.

Re: A Californian drying out in South Africa

Hi, just a thought, when parked, try parking with the front raised, on blocks, or ramps, so that the oil level at the scroll end is lower, this may confirm that is the problem.
