Re: Hall sensors

Hi Pete, that's a very difficult question to answer as it depends on the sensitivity of the sensor itself. It might only be answered by a suck-it-and-see test. If you find it does interfere, then you could try isolating the sensor by fitting a magnetic shield around the sensor made from some ferrous...

Re: Thruxton Historic 12-13 June

Hi Richard,
FYI, I've made a note of the Thruxton Event as I'm planning to go (all being well), but not sure of which day as yet. As I'm a Club Lotus member I'll get the ticket discount through the club. I'll probably take the Excel.
Cheers, Martin.

Re: Aircon Condenser

I converted mine from R12 to R134, replacing all the old seals with HNBR type, which is recommended for R134.

It also has the Hella condenser with identical pipe connections as the Hella 8FC 351 039-011. Hence HNBR seals (R134a) are available and suitable for the Hella condensers. - QED

Re: Aircon Condenser

Hi, I think you'd be better off ordering the Hella item on fleabay (
8FC 351 039-011). Its only slightly shorter and the original pipework will fit OK if you get the little adapters that fit into the pipe ends.

Re: CD player

Thanks Pete, but I don't think that's going to fit/connect to my old Alpine headunit. Anyway, thank you for the offer and for checking.

Re: CD player

Hi Pete,
If the Alpine magazine is for a CHA-S624 changer unit (or similar) I'd be very happy to have this. The magazine that fits mine is transparent plastic and contains 6 grey plastic trays for the CD's. Is that likes yours?
Cheers, Martin.

Re: Free to a good home

I couldn't see any pics on the first post, but please can you take some if possible of the air-scoop/cowling with the feed - looking for ideas of how to get something like that plumbed in. Thanks, Neil. The trunking from the airbox connects onto the pipe spigot/pipe shown in the pictures. I'm afrai...

Re: LED Headlight Options

Thanks for the suggestion(s). I did read Phantasm's thread, very interesting too. I'm going to replace my reflector bowls and see how much improvement there is with that, plus some upgraded halogen bulbs (which I have already). I'm a little tempted to investigate the HID bulbs, but I'm afraid that t...
