    SOC Valuation Service

    Hi All, Just getting my 72 stag on the road after full restoration, lots of time and money spent (no surprise there) so wanted an agreed value insurance. RH say SOC offer a valuation service. Can anyone tell me how it works, where i get the form from, who i send it too, what it costs and finally, DSCF1101.JPG what are the winning lottery numbers for next weekend.

    Cheers

    Also meant to ask, does anyone know the correct operating temperature, im using the waterless coolant and it got up to 120 deg c accordng to my dash gauge the other day on a short (but fast) run around my local industrial estate, no steam, but then there shouldnt be on waterless coolant.
    It was a very warm day too.

      Go to the SOC Homepage and sign in to the Member's Area (login details on P3 of the magazine). There are links to an electronic valuation form which goes to Russell Lewis. His contact details are also at the front of the magazine.

      Beautiful looking Stag. That colour really suits it.

          Thanks Gents, very kind. Took it for a spin around Coventry today, Noticed the speedo fluctuates quite a lot, What would you recomend replacing first, Cable or angled drive head, doubt its both but you never know.

          Thanks again

            With me it was the cable starting to breakdown.

                Normally around 90 deg C. I know that waterless coolant has a poorer heat transfer than water/antifreeze and assuming the temp reading is correct, that’s way too hot IMHO.

                This maybe of interest and save you money: https://www.norosion.com/evanstest.htm

                  Well, sorted speedo flutter, new inner and outer cable. Still struggling to get the twin strombergs right, any one recommend a carb tuner in or near coventry/ midlands.

                  Also had comments that the rear wheel camber is positive, think it should be about 1.5 deg, but think mine is more. Just wondered if i was to remove one of the thick washers (i have 2) above the outer subframe arm mounting bush to body mount, this will raise the outer edge of the arm so making the wheel more vertical, cant see any other adjustment, Other than perhaps loosening all the bolts holding the swing arm to sub frame mounts and tweaking the mounts to use any clearance in the holes. Not sure this will gain me much. Mounts are fitted correct way round.

                  Bit worried about the water less cooling running hotter. Should i dilute and accept its not waterless so needs changing regularly, or add a fan to the rad, Any thoughts.

                    I would also be concerned about the additional drag on the waterpump caused by waterless coolant, there have been many cases of stripped waterpump gears so the last thing you need is more load put on them. For this reason Davies Craig the maker of electric water pumps often used on Stags will not guarantee their pumps when waterless coolant is used. Personally I would bin the coolant and refill with a normal antifreeze/water mix. I cannot advise if any special flushing required.
