Re: Black 289 BRA Mk 1 Cobra - Help Tracing Original Builder

Re: New member

Looks great, make sure you make the most of it before winter sets in proper!
Salt on the roads is no good for exposed ally parts, if you didn't already know.

Re: Winter projects

Yes and yes. There is a master kit that includes the pump, pre and post filter and I reckon it should be possible to fit a return stabbing close to or via the fuel level sender. They also do a dished air cleaner base that could be powder coated ford blue (or left in bling) that would solve any clear...

Re: Tripo headlights

I've driven at night with the PL repros and they are OK and that was on unlit country A roads with standard H4 lamps fitted.

Re: Diff ratios (again)

I use a T5 5 speed box and that suits a 3.54 diff perfectly. More popular ratios are 3.31, 3.54 and 3.77. 3.07 were fitted in the XJ6/12 as a none locker. The difference from a 3.9 standard MGB Diff to the 3.54 Jag diff was not massive, but noticeable. So I'd imagine that the 3.07-3.33 would be slig...

Re: Forum dead?

This is generally a quiet time. Events are lacking, many people planning for the holidays and this is also coupled by the fact that many of the newer members tend not to use the forum. I've been busy, was at the show last weekend, work all week, picked up a 2 1/4 petrol engine for my Land Rover on F...
