    Charcoal Canister

    I have just started the V12 up after 6 months...run up to heat and runs nicely except a little rough idle, i noticed an open pipe on the carb balancing pipe i put my finger over it and the car ran smooth with a few more revs, looking down i see the charcoal canister and another open pipe.... looking at the manual these two open ends should have a connecting pipe.... my question is... where can i get a replacement charcoal canister to go inside???
  4. I am after some clarification here, I have a series 3 V12 2+2 FHC and want to replace the rear discs and calipers etc... i have been told i can do this in situ by dropping down the rear wheels/suspension. However having looked at a few youtube videos of the procedure...everyone has the whole rear suspension cage unit removed from the car!!! Can anyone who has done this give me a definitive answer on if it can easily be done without removing the whole rear IRS unit? cheers

    Spinner removal tools

    I have seen a couple of tools one from Germany that is way over engineered and very expensive! and another made somewhere in the uk but i can't find details of this more sensibly priced item

    Spinner removal tools

    Well these are my first set of wire wheels and having removed and replaced one I am not happy that the wheel is tight enough, I have continental spinners not the 2 eared ones so getting them tight proved awkward.

    Spinner removal tools

    HI I have seen various tools to remove and replace the spinners on my wire wheels, I'm not entirely happy with using a hammer to get correct torque! ;-) does anyone know where i can get a tool i can use with a torque wrench to fit my continental spinners ...3 lugs rather than 2 ears... ... hoping for a sensible priced item as well but maybe thats a pipe dream???
