Thanks :) Drove him the 30 odd miles home and it was great :P :P

We're going here tomorrow

http://www.classiccarshows.org.uk/restor.html

Gave him a once over and spotted a few bits that will need a tidy up - but on the whole he's fab :mrgreen:

What makes him rare? :?: There are some parts not standard - the engine has some non original bits, and the bonnet is from an Imp.

They didnt make many MK3 Chamois , not much special or unique parts really , more of a parts bin job ( not meant to sound nasty ), although i think the front dummy grill is unique to this model and the MK3 Coupe .( apart of course from the one ive bolted to the front of my Vusky) . :lol: He does have HILLMAN on the bonnet , maybe its been replaced ( not uncommon by any stretch ).

Congratulations! Sammy looks fantastic. You'll have to let us know what the 6 out of 7 people at work make of it :wink:

EDIT:
don't want to put a dampner on things :oops: ... but one small concern is that there is a lot of overspray in evidence suggesting a hasty respray. I presume that you had the car properly checked over before you bought it :? Hopefully just the product of timesaving rather than a cover up :D

Took someone with me who has a more "classic eye", and ex Imp owner and he seemed to think that mechanically everything was sound. According to the previous owner the respray was done as a favour as he worked in the trade - Aware that its not perfect and will need a good clean up around the edges. :wink:

Nice colour though , apart from the overspray it looks to be a good paint job , unlike my Vusky which plainly isnt.

That's OK then. I wasn't trying to criticise in any way, just wanted to be sure you had had sammy checked over. There have been many unfortunate tales of people buying cars with fresh respray's only to discover that under the paint they had been repaired with mud and straw ......... well you know what I mean. It's more of a safety concern than a cosmetic one.

If the person who checked it over was an imp owner then hopefully they knew what to look for bodywork wise. Mechanical stuff can always be sorted out relatively easily. It's bodywork that is a bit more complicated.

Best of luck with it and most importantly enjoy it :D

Congratulations, Sammy looks lovely, with some nice choice modifications engine wise, imo. That is a 28/36 carb yes? Id say leave it. I fitted mine about 2 years ago, using the car every day until recently and now every other day or more, and never touched it.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Imping, Charlotte! Have fun at your first show.

Sammy and I had a great day out at the Restoration show in Stoneleigh today. I've done more miles in the last 48 hours since I've owned him than he's done in the year :shock:

Before we set out went to get petrol which was fun! Bloke come over and said "don't mind if I have a look do you, I used to have one of those". :) Get to the show and just as I park up someone else said "Nice example, I used to have one of those". I am beginning to realise if I had £1 for everytime someone said that I'd become rich quite quick :lol:

Great car so far - Lots of fun and smiles!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D

Not a good start to the week, went out to start Sammy but no luck. He initially started to turn over but then gave up, think the battery is maybe flat, or I flooded the choke but he didn’t want to go. It was freeeeezing cold out tho maybe that had something to do with it. Not used to a manual choke – any recommendations? :shock:

I'd suggest put a new battery in there first. This might sound obvious :oops: but at this time of year, if a battery is showing signs of weakness, it is pretty much beyond hope. It is my experience that once you need to start topping up the electrolyte in a battery or recharging it when it is used most days, its days are numbered anyway.

For the sake of £50-60ish, it is well worth the investment. Especially if you depend on the car. :wink:

Hello charlotte welcome to the forum, the weber 28/36 you have on should start by pulling choke on fully wind over on key it will catch and run if this is not happening push the choke lever down slowly at the same time as turning the engine over till it fires and runs then use the throttle do not touch the throttle pedal before it is running. an alternative is not to use the choke but push the throttle pedal to the floor twice and turn the engine over and gently apply the throttle pedal till the engine fires and runs you may need to rev it slightly till it will idle on its own. Things like this are why some people say that old cars have character, you need to learn the car, you could try another identical imp and it will have its own starting technique.

Thanks for the hints - My friend is coming round later to help me possibly jump start Sammy if he doesn't start. Mate has informed me that all "older" vehicles are tempremental, as they own a 38 year old 2CV Van which does similar on the cold mornings. :oops:

As Mike says you just have to get used to your cars little foibles. A new battery is a good idea though. I'd go for the biggest one you can fit in the space avaialble. Maybe also look at an alternator conversion.

Just coz its old doesnt mean it shouldnt start first time , both my Imps start first time everytime no matter how cold or how long i leave them , as suggested a battery annd charging system check is a good idea , not sure if they are still available , but a Lucas battery 037/4 ( heavy duty one ) is great .

Very nice Chammy that Charlotte , i've got the same thing but a coupe .

All looks very tidy , engine looks like its a sport type or at least got some sport parts on . Oil cooler , Weber carb and probably a decent exhaust but can't see much in the pic.

Like others have said , i'd replace the battery with a new one (means it won't be half red too! :D ) as they don't last forever .
Also what you really need if you want propper reliability is to fit an alternator instead of that dynamo. If using the car at night with lights on , heater , wipers , radio etc the dynamo is useless meaning the battery can't get enough charge and often leads to a flat battery when trying to start from cold the next morning, epseically with an old battery.

I've converted more than i can remember and is really simple with the right parts. Just a case of changing a bracket on the engine so the alternator can be fastened front and rear , alternator is shorter than a dynamo, removing the dynamo regulator and joining some wires together which were once separate on the regulator.

Job done.

Obviously need the parts first and i highly reccomend getting a new alternator rather than a second hand one . The best place i reccomend if not using an imp supplier is paddockspares.com , wholesale land rover parts dealer, you will not find anyone cheaper for bits and the alternator for a Series Land rover diesel or petrol is right for an Imp .. may need a pulley though so check first if they come with pulley or not.

If you need any more info or parts to do the job i probably have some spare .. i've run imps as everyday cars since i was 18 , 8 years after and still not bored and can vouch they're super reliable if you do the right things to them :twisted:

Ooh, shiny! Sammy's gorgeous :)

You'll soon get used to his little foibles and irritations, and you'll learn how to overcome them. Don't forget to check out your local Area Centre meetings - Area meetings are held once a month in a local(ish) hostelry, and you'll find some very helpful Impers there with plenty of expertise. Details can be found each month in the Imp Club magazine Impressions.

Oil leaks that "CAN be fixed easily are the crankshaft pully oil seal ( check for wear groove on pully as well ), dizzy "o" ring seal , cambox and oil filler gaskets , sumps start off not leaking when replaced but usually start too after a while. :P

You're definitely not alone. I've no idea how they do it, but all old cars seem to have a gift for dripping oil. Even Celyn does it, and she had a new engine towards the end of July. It doesn't detract from the joy of driving an Imp (or Chamois) though - it just adds to the 'interest'.
