The contact surfaces between an SU carburettor and its manifold mounting can be easily damaged as a recent Discussion Forum topic identified. Following on from this, Joe Rayner has written a short, well illustrated article which provides a clear pathway to resolving such an issue. Entitled SU Flange Repair, it can be found in the Member’s ‘Technical Bits’ area of the site under the sub-menu ‘Carburettors & Fuel’.
Grateful thanks to Mike Tebbett, Ali Bond & Jonathan Barwick for the images that can now be found in a new gallery at the foot of the 2021 Event Galleries page , all of which were taken at the recent VSCC Driving Tests held at Madresfield, Worcs
Not all car enthusiasts are ex-engineers or even familiar with some of the technical terminology in use. The Morris Owner magazine recognised this fact and in March 1933 published an article entitled ‘What they mean’, in which the author explains in layman’s language some of the technical features and the terminology associated with them. This article can now be found in the Member’s Area Technical Bits section under ‘Everything Else’.
