I have a landrover series 3, 2 1/4 petrol. fitted is a v8 su carb and lpg system. it seems to be over fueling as the exhaust is popping away when i slow down. where do I find an adjuster screw to reduce...


do not touch the fuel and play with it as you could do more harm than good ,the popping down the exhaust is caused by a air leak in the exhaust system as this is the most common cause ,but as this vehicle is so old it was was not designed to run on unleaded fuel and i suspect that the valves are not stelite coated so they have burnt seats caused by lack of lead in the fuel which was a lubricant for the valve seats as well .Now you havent stated what year this vehicle is but they havent fitted SU carbs for the last 25yrs at least so this later one is more of my suspicion and if iam right then use a substitute lead additive in the fuel after you have removed the heads and ground the valves in .

No oil pressure in my rover v8 engine. The car is a TVR 350i 1988 fitted with Rover V8. At the track today it lost oil pressure after a few laps and have no pressure and the oil light is also on. Engine...


You may have sludge in the "pickup tube" which would prevent oil from circulating through the oil pump into the motor. Remove the oil pan and inspect and use a long piece of weed trimmer line to unclog if the tube has any nasty sludge in it. Do NOT alter the length of the tube. Make sure to remove any sludge build up in the pan.

How to tune twin carbs on a mini from start ? the car wont start unless i use easy start then runs rough and wont idle im not to clued up on these 14/ su carbs any tips? its the old one not bmw


First***Stop using starting fluid*** It will destroy your engine.
To set up the carbs, you will need to buy a vacuum balancer. This is a device that will show you how much downdraft each carb has. You then, have to adjust the linkage, so that they are the same. After that, you will need to adjust the fuel mix.
All in all, if you're not experienced in this, it is best left to a carburator shop, not most garages.
