Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Jag, Citroens, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Hey look what was dropped off for the BX today... https://i.ibb.co/5GZqTwz/IMG-20210307-172604.jpg These are actually rear spheres for a non-hydractive Xantia rather than BX ones, but they're pretty close spec wise. Will be absolutely fine for the purposes of getting the car into a driveable state. ...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Jag, Citroens, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Today's unexciting update...TPA has had an engine oil & filter change. https://i.ibb.co/hZzhJST/IMG-20210306-171159.jpg https://i.ibb.co/GsTfc0c/IMG-20210306-172724.jpg I had another shot at a Slow-Mo video of the distributor working in daylight. Given we've got a clear cap on at the moment it seeme...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Jag, Citroens, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Nothing much today, mainly just got an oil & filter change done on the BX. No more horrible rusty oil filter. https://i.ibb.co/8gd78rF/IMG-20210305-165019.jpg That wasn't the worst filter to get off I've dealt with, but it wasn't far off. I had to get the chain wrench and breaker bar involved. Pulle...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Jag, Citroens, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Package arrived this morning for TPA. https://i.ibb.co/QkP1s0Q/IMG-20210304-154225.jpg Installation was pretty straightforward...Though I still had to fabricate a cable end. I think I just need to go to Speedy Cables or similar and just order a proper cable. The issue seems to be that (unsurprisingl...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Jag, Citroens, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Well doesn't that sound happier? YouTube Link (0:17) YouTube Link (0:27) I'd known something was way off with the carb setup from square one given that the idle speed was very high and I could tell with my nose from fifty feet away that she was running stinking rich. I decided to actually investigat...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Jag, Citroens, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Apparently I missed yesterday's update here, so have two updates rolled into one. -- -- -- Reasonably productive day today. Main task was to hit the BX (not literally) with the polish and wax. I'd been hovering over whether to remove the dealer decals for a while, though as they were in pretty poor ...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Jag, Citroens, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Few bits and pieces done today. First up was seeing if I could figure out what was up with the dash lighting on the BX. The only lighting inside which is tied to the headlights is in the rear window heater and hazard light switches, the rest all comes on with the ignition. The only light I found tha...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Jag, Citroens, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Ran out of time and mental energy before finishing an update yesterday, so here's yesterday and today bundled into one. Didn't have much time to dedicate to the work on the Beige Wonder, but when the new fuel pump arrived almost perfectly in sync with me getting back from running several errands I d...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Jag, Citroens, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

To be fair I probably could get it out. There's something physically wrong with the accelerator pump so I need to pull that off to try to figure out what's up with it. As that's mounted on the rear of the carb it'll need to come off for access. So if I've got to take it off anyway I may as well just...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Jag, Citroens, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Okay...so that ball does not live under the accelerator jet (which had been the conclusion I'd come to after studying the diagrams and what several other folks had suggested). With it in there it's not possible to get the jet to seat fully so it plainly lives elsewhere. Except of course now it's stu...
