    Chris Knott Reviews

    Hi, if you'd like the reassurance of reading some reviews before trying Chris Knott for a car insurance quote, here's a selection from some of our car club forums and the Trustpilot review site... "I saved £40 on my renewal and the process was nice and easy, highly recommended." taffyhornblower, jaguarforum "I went with CK 10 days ago, they easily beat the A********** renewal and subsequent quotes I had with an equivalent policy - so I am in the [prize] draw." coldel, VX220 forum "Smashed my renewal quote with my previous insurers, well impressed!

  4. AFR log say 11.8 to 13.2 at +0.346psi and 10.8 at +0.305psi. Hard to know if that as throttle closed... but trend looks it goes from 13 down to 11 while accelerating hard. Bigger air.
  5. 122 is good over 3000 (12.4 to 12.8) but now appears to be too rich at the top end. Sure I saw it reach 11.9 out of the corner of my eye. So 190 or 200 airs I guess.

    I'm up for it. (I'm having a bit of a nightmare with a rear arch trim, but one way or another I'll be coming). I'll ask Steve (sleag40) if he wants to come.
  8. The metalwork might not be the correct shape. My second go and the trim doesn't quite fit. I'll contact my mechanic who did the welding and go from there.
  9. I also redid the main jets to be 122 with 182.5 air correctors (in .7 tube). I wonder what the AFR gauge will think about that. 120 main with 190 air (in .5 tube) is good for a tuned Fiat 1290cc.
  10. Making the AMP plug have protruding pins was quite a fiddly job last time. Desoldered the plug pins, as they were extended with crimped solid copper wire in the DIY plug. Soldered the existing DIY plug back to stripped and tinned leads with some new heatsink sleeving. Refitted and idle is back to normal. The multi strand copper wires I used are fairly thin (insulation displacement telephone extension wire in convoluted sleeving). Lasted 4 years. I imagine they became brittle as they flexed, (and unplugging when testing compression finally did for the joint)

    First job of the day, the heater blower/ scuttle area was cleaned up. After all the muck was removed, it looked fresh, so this area will be masked off and left as is. Nearside of engine bay now rubbed out. Just the bottom half of the bulkhead left to rub now. Should get that finished up one evening in the week.

    E10 fuel

    Should be fine. VW have been doing flex fuel engines for Brazil (VW GOL) for ages. Only modern petrol Polo that can't do E10 is 1.4 litre (63kW) FSI made from February 2002 to June 2006 Not sure why. Maybe aluminium injector rail? Fuel hoses have been Ethanol safe SAE J30R9 for ages. https://www.gov.uk/check-vehicle-e10-petrol I'm not sure now I've checked for a 1996. https://www.hagerty.co.uk/articles/maintenance-and-gear/everything-you-need-to-know-about-using-e10-fuel-with-your-classic-car/ "However, the RAC has war

    E10 fuel

    Hi I've got a 1996 6n1 polo and I've heard about this new fuel that's being brought in and I'm wondering if it will run on e10 or will I need to replace parts?. Thanks
  22. is the metalwork the correct shape ? week old paint shouldnt rub off down to the metal , have you used the correct primer over keyyed up prep work?
  23. Had a look and on the nearside they appear fine by visual inspection, more messy on the offside which doesn't appear to be the side the noise is from (if indeed there is a 'side'). Could be the carrier 'clicking' along its route? On the off-chance I checked the nearside rear as another post mentioned some clicking from a pitted bearing race potentially from an incorrect tension from the rear hub nut. Had a poke and the thrust washer has the amount of lateral play (with a screwdriver) that haynes recommends.

    It's been a bit warmer than is comfortable in the shed of late, but I still managed to get a bit of rubbing done. The offside is mostly done. Got started with the nearside turret, and ran out of time. Should get back on it over the next weekend.

    Rear quarter was rubbed out at the weekend, then plonked the door on today to have a weigh up. It's a lot better, but not quite 100%. I may have another little fettle at some point time permitting. The nearside is pretty much spot on. Very pleased with this side. After playing with doors + umming and ahhing for a while, I got a bit of guide coat on in the engine bay, then made a start on rubbing it again.
  26. The WR5DS did not foul when idle at 14, but low RPM (600?) due to Dignition advance expecting single carb and 19in Hg, not 12. Cruise at 2500rpm ish was 15.3 AFR.
  27. Ran with 119/155 on ye olde Dignition... whose Hall sender plug is okay. Idle and low rpms are fairly rubbish, as not. enough advance for the twin carbs lower vacuum. At W_o_t which has same 30+5 advance as the Amethyst, I see AFRs from 11.3 at +0.305psi to 14.3 at +0.387 psi So 155 air corrector is a bit too rich. Or faulty sparks, were causing wideband to think unburnt fuel was lean condition.
