Re: Messing with leaf springs

My BRA 289 has been on the road for almost 30 years. For the first 10 of them I struggled with the rear springs.

Re: BRA register

My kit is no 52 or 54 and left the factory in 1985 so if yours is no 112 then I guess 18 months or 2 years post 1985 would be about right.

Re: Engine change/installation recommendation

My BRA was built with a reconditioned old 3.5 engine. About 14 years ago I had a new engine built with the latest stiffened, cross bolted block and it fitted straight in. If by a 4 litre you are referring to the older 3.9 then that would fit straight in too
