Re: 2021 300 Goals ?

Sounds like some great work going on.... I'm just looking forward to getting into the spring and clear of the salt ridden roads up here.... Fired it up at the weekend after a few weeks slumber, a bit lumpy but soon cleared its throat..... I brimmed the tank before lay up and added in some fuel stabi...

Re: 2021 300 Goals ?

Always good to have decent lighting in the garage/workshop.
I fitted a new LED batten recently to boost lighting above a work bench. Think it was about £25 from Screwfix, literally is night and day the result 8)

Keep at it Logan....get that 360 running again!

Re: Fake - F7R Motorsport Daily

Great read....!
The steering wheel looks spot on...
The carb rebuild is a work of art....wow...I assume Mac re-plated the original parts and ultrasonically cleaned the remainder...?
I don't blame you for not wanting to re-fit it but it sounds like it is better than new and running sweet !

Re: Fuse box connector burnt.

Thanks to both for this thread, I expect it will be very useful to others in the future. I am going to get some of those terminal sockets Chris, just to have to hand. I had said to Jon on PM, I assume there is enough slack on the cable to snip off the old socket and crimp on another..? Jon's solutio...

Re: Fuse box connector burnt.

Nice job Jon, looks a good solution. Would be handy to have a source of new crimp connectors but wouldn't know where to start looking :? I see Chris_C had posted up this link a while ago https://www.skandix.de/en/spare-parts/accessories/assembly-parts/plugs/plug-round-connector-sleeve/1029289/ Thats...

Re: New parts from Born-Built-Beauties for the 300 series

Great new parts are being produced....hopefully RHD cables eventually ? :)
I have just purchased a pair of new BBB 360 radiator hoses from Mac, very nicely made parts.

Re: 1.7 vapour separator hose routing.

Sounds like some good work and sussing out of the issues. I was surprised my 360's fuel hoses had no pipe clamps fitted, just the hoses pushed on the fuel rail and filter outlet etc. I replaced these with new hose and fitted proper pipe clips. I had a small spraying leak at the fuel filter joint aft...

Re: Is anyone still alive ;-?

Hi folks, yes I'm here regularly sapping up what I can from the many useful posts. Now had my 360 approx 14 months and still smiling! It's running much better these days thanks to the advice on here but sadly not as many miles covered this year due to Covid and unexpected brake issues that took me a...

Re: Hi from Downunder

Welcome to the forum... Lots of parts supplier options as per Bogbasic's reply. I have used 340 Onderdelen a couple of times, usually when I have a few things to order as the shipping is expensive. Their prices can be a little eye watering so its best to look around at all options first. If you are ...
