I've got a white one thats on the road and a silver one thats getting alot of work done to it.

When did you last have your 5 on the road? i've not seen one going about here for ages the last one i seen was a tungsten grey parked up in langstracht

carb is looking good and way to clean  :D

did you drill out the needle jet yourself or did you buy one from german ebay?

I am interested in seeing if you had drilled it, as I have read in a few articles that is a little awkward for it to seal properly after drilling..... so I was going to be lazy and just buy one

yes that tungy is my pals i just stay at the bottom of the langstracht too,my other pal has one too just 100 yards fom where the tungy sat,his bro owns a black pulser its sitting in the garden cant miss it

hey phase 2 tungy,cheers mate ,i know had a we got with the buff ,will go with the chrome under the bonnet  :lol:

yes i did drill the standard one from 1.7 to 1.9,i cleaned it out and then check for it sealing there was a small leak so all i did was turn it over and gave it a tap until it sealed as the needle is brass too and it worked no problem ,not sure if i would be so lucky if i had to drill it to 2.0mm,

the second stage drilled no problem either thank good ,didnt want to damage it or drill too much either,so once i get back from offshore im gonna get it on and see what its like,ive got a t28 to go on to in the procees of putting it back together ,and then get her set up and see what the figures are

Hey Baz no I don't use it as a daily driver I do try and drive it as much as I can when its not raining. I'm going to be up in stockhill tomorrow helping my brother with his pug so if your going about and see the 5 come over and you can have a look at her.

Whats the plans for your mates 5?

The carb looks great dude. So you're on the power hunt now  :D  Good stuff.
Steve knows a thing or two about the jets. The guide he made is really handy.

My phase 1 is still there  :lol:  I've got a few new piccies to post up soon  :)

Good luck on your door hunt bud!

cheers scratcher ,it has come out better than expected ,as long as it performs as good as it looks,cant be worse than the one thats on my car, :lol: yeh steve pointed me in ther right direction,and his guide is invaluable to anybody with a 5


when i started to build the 5 power was the priority in mind ,it ended up needing more work than i first anticipated  :lol: looking forward to seeing the final product mate its been a long time

glad to hear the beast is still getting treated well :D ,look forward to your pics bud ,great to see projects moving forward

fingers crossed i hit the scrappy one day ,and there will be the freshest door in history just waiting for me  :lol:  :lol: ,if only !!!!!!
