  1. I have decided its time for someone else to enjoy my 7, so I'm selling it. It is actually an '83 that has been reregistered as a '63, vin # SB1682. I bought it this way & don't know the details. When I bought it, it was in need of some TLC. I finally restored it, while do some upgrades. It now has: Rebuilt Ford Cross flow engine with: Norris Cam Weber Carbs Dry Sump oiling system, new Oil tank, new Areoquip hoses, remote oil filter & oil cooler Pretronix Distributer & Coil Dave Bean Aluminum Flywheel with the
  2. I've got a Ford Cross flow with a dry sump oiling system. There's no name on it, and it doesn't look like the Titan model sold by Pegasus. It has 3 different parts, there's 2 pumps & an 1/8 inch spacer. I can't seem to get it to stop leaking between the pumps & the spacer. Does anyone have any experience sealing these? I tried Loctite 518 gasket eliminator with no success. Also, the oil pressure seem a bit high; 100+ lbs in 4th gear at a steady 3500 RPM. Should I adjust the oil pressure relief on the pump in or out? And, what would be a good pressure? Many thanks for any & all h
  3. Many thanks to all for your responses. This gives me a lot to think about, but they are all of the same vein. I've got a dry sump on my car which means buying 7 quarts, so I just wanted to be right the first time. Wish I could still get Castrol XLR 20w-50 like I ran in my Mini; but that was a long time ago. Cheers, Kato
  4. Just thought I'd throw this out...What's everyone running for oil in a Cross Flow that doesn't get raced, & only driven hard occasionally. Thanks, Kato
  5. I bought a set of anvils & the upper wheel from a machinist awhile ago & built the frame. The wheel & anvils are all precision machined & have bearing to help ease the rolling. The frame in built out of 2 X 3 3/16 (.187) wall tubing so it is stout and has been tig welded together. I had it powder coated semigloss black. I great plans to learn how to use it & make gas tanks for all of the custom motorcycles I was going to build. Since moving to Hawaii, I have found the DMV doesn't like anything that isn't stock. I went to court to get my motorcycle registered, & was told
  6. I bumped my brake master cylinder reservoir this morning while doing some tiding up under the bonnet. Promptly broke the top off. Anyone know where I might find another? Thanks, Kurthttp://www.usa7s.net/vb/attachment.php?attachmentid=15077&stc=1
  7. I have the following parts for sale. All are priced to sell. Stock radiator, leaks. You'll need to find an old school radiator shop to have it soldered. $25 Stock cooling fan, works. This is the type that bolts to the front cross member. $25 9 row oil cooler, 11 1/2" long, has BSP thread fittings. $50 I will ship everything USPS as I live in Hawaii & this is the least expensive way to ship things to the mainland. If you need it quickly, I can do that too. Thanks for looking, Kurt http://www.usa7s.net/vb/attachment.php?attachmentid=14967&stc=1http://www.usa7s.net/
  8. Did you find any? I have a pair with all of the mounting hardware. I can get you pictures...Kurt
  9. I have a nose available. Let me know if you'd like pictures. Its not as rough as the one in the photos & is your for the price of shipping. Kurt
  10. I have 6 7 X 16 wheels, 1 is brand new still in the box. They have a 3 3/4 in (95mm) bolt pattern, and come 3/8 x 24 lug nuts. I'm guessing they'll fit early cars. You can have them for free, all you have to do is pay for the shipping from Hawaii. You knew there had to be a catch didn't you. I had 5 wheels shipped here from Arizona & it was around $150. Thanks, Kurt Sorry, they're gone. Thanks for looking.
  11. Tom, Good to know. So far, I have gone down 1 step in amperage size from what xcarguy suggested and everything seems to be working. Thanks, Kurt
  12. I would, but there's no value on it nor is anything written on the wiring diagram I have. So far, I have gone down 1 step in amperage size from what xcarguy suggested and everything seems to be working. Thanks for the input, Kurt
  13. Cool, this is exactly what I was looking for. Many thanks for sending it along. Enjoy your Thanksgiving, Kurt
  14. Hey Ya'll, I didn't have much else going on, so I thought I would convert my '82 Lotus/Caterham from circuit breakers to fuses. As an explanation, I live in Hawaii & if I was on the other side of the island & one of the circuit breakers decided to pack it in, I'd be in a bad way. Hence the idea to convert to fuses. Does anyone know what amperage fuses I should be running for the following circuits? Headlights Brake Lights Dash Lights Turn Signals Horn Wipers Radiator Fan Fuel pump Many Thanks, Kurt
