Re: Wanganui, Mcsorely 442E / MX5

This week have been fitting the front hard brake lines. Today bled them and all working well with no leaks. Couldn't resist a little squirt down the road to try them out. Nice smooth effortless braking as have kept the booster so many don't use. Also pinstripped the nose cone. Just needing a coat of...

Re: Wanganui, Mcsorely 442E / MX5

Today have cleaned up the nose cone. A second hand Almac one cut down the centre and 60mm removed to fit my ch...

Re: Wanganui, Mcsorely 442E / MX5

Picked up my side panels today from the powder coaters. Almost a dayglow orange. Guards and scuttle will be white, which I'll probally spray myself , to break up the shockingly bright color. https://i.postimg.cc/DzH1MHtT/IMG-20181210-163402.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/zGDwbnn9/IMG-20181210-163434.jpg

Re: Wanganui, Mcsorely 442E / MX5

Yesterday wrapped a board around the right side of the chassis and marked the dimensions for the outer panel. Hope to fold it this weekend. Also changed my mind about the vinyl I had covered the consol with. Removed it and recovered with the carbon fiber vinyl many use. A big improvement. Picked up ...

Re: Wanganui, Mcsorely 442E / MX5

Found the problem with the circuit opening relay. ( operates fuel pump) Needs to be a relay with two coils. One opened by the ignition switch and the other by the air flow meter. Picked up one off Trademe for $30. They are normally $150 new. Expensive relay! So finally got fuel flow into the cylinde...

Re: Wanganui, Mcsorely 442E / MX5

This relay opperates the fuel pump. From what I gather with the ignition key on run , the air flow meter switch turns on with the air coming into engine ( light green wire keeps relay and pump on) With ignition key on start air flow meter is off ( not open yet ) and the fuel pump is turned on by the...
