Re: Spider 2000 filler neck hose

What's the consensus on what to do with old/contaminated gas? I never dump old fuel. I filter all my my old gas through one of those Mr. Funnel filters that removes any water then blend it 50/50 with fresh fuel and run it in my riding mower. I can't tell any difference between running fresh fuel an...

Re: Spider 2000 filler neck hose

Apples to oranges: The sending unit on my MGB goes in from the side and has a fuel pickup point coming off of it. When I pulled the hose off fuel stated to flow out of the inlet port. I had a large Sterilte container underneath the tank. I stuck a hose onto the inlet port off the sending unit and ai...

Re: Spider 2000 filler neck hose

I'm replacing the gas tank on a '82 Spider. The tank came with the hose that connects to the filler neck. Any suggestions on replacing this hose would be appreciated. Thanks I was in need of a filler hose for my Yugo but at the time seemed like it was a NLA part. I took it to Advance Auto and compa...

James, I'm sorry I'm not quite getting it. Is your MGB actually running on (the engine), or just tach bouncing or other electricals?
Well both but the last few times I've started it, nothing weird has happened.

Re: Weber experts!

For the purposes of control fuel flow FIAT used an electrically controlled shut off valve on the main idle jet. This was only used on the ADF and ADHA carburetors. The DGV was never installed by the factory on a FIAT. The port you circled is a vacuum port. Thank you that's what I wanted to know. Ac...

Weber experts!

I hate to ask an MGB related question on this board but as Carl says, those MG guys in their tweed hats would rather give up their cars than their twin side draft SU (early model) and single Zenith/Stromberg (later model) carbs. For some reason the majority of those guys on an MGB board I am on abso...

Re: Waking the Spider for spring

Jody, I've been going round and round with the cooling system on my Spider for the past 25 years and it is mind boggling as to how temperamental they can be on Spiders but not other cars. I've had more issues with the cooling system on this car than anything else. Fan not kicking on when it should, ...

Re: fabricating a M/C inlet

I put my own personal spin on a pressure bleeder based on the Gunson easy bleed apparatus. You can actually buy these for about $50 if you don't like building tools. There are two parts to this video. I was too lazy to combine them. Also the reservoir neck on my MGB I'm demonstrating this on is a bi...

Re: Heater/Coolant odor questions...appreciate any help

Hello, if you end up replacing the heater cord be sure to measure its thickness before you order a new one. Fiat changed the core around 1972-73 to a thicker one, and that is what most vendors carry. Your 71 should have the thinner core. Is this the same thinner core X1/9s use? Several of us have f...

Re: timing belt off by half tooth

I've got an adjustable cam wheel for a SOHC Fiat motor. If anyone is interested let me know and I'll try to find it. As usual make me an offer! The SOHC seems to be more forgiving since there is just one cam wheel in the equation. Has anyone does a Dyno test to really know how much power you loose w...
