Hi There All

I certainly was good to see everyone, and its very interesting seeing other plus 2's, especially when they have ABS and forced indution! By the way Tim, I think that your engine mounts are soft. It was jumping about a bit more than I would have expected when idling. Like a lot more. I though that Niall's Zetec was the best one that i have seen so far, mainly because it seems to sit and look "right"...well done on getting it together. Seeing and hearing the engine running has made me determned to fuel inject my twincam!

It will be good to see us all again at the next meet.....

I was intending to make some bosses for tightening the knock ons but there is one already on the market and I know another guy in America who has just started producing another cheaper version.
I have no idea what the prices are but I have the contact details for the guy in America if it helps.

Hi Berni,
thanks for the head up on the engine mounts..
How much work are they to replace (I am at work at the mo and hence can't look at the car!)
Cheers
tim
PS strangely, someone else on Sunday commented about how smoothly my +2 was idling. Perhaps they were taking the piss?

Or may be they just don't know and/or they run on Strombergs !

PS It was good to put a few names to faces on Sunday and the suggestion of a LotusElan.net meet sounds first class.

Hi Tim

Changing the engine mounts is one of the easier jobs. I am pretty sure that yours are shot. As far as the idle is concerned mere mortals and tinkerers like ourselves are never going to be able to balance a 2p piece on its edge on the cam cover, but you should be able to keep a cup of tea there.
