Re: Well Done Boris

Well, following on from Nicola's statement today, it appears that we won't be getting out of lockdown for at least another two weeks up here. Hopefully you guys are all enjoying the warm, dry weather.

Re: Cibies

The driving lamps do look good, especially on a FIA.

Re: Cibies

I swapped my tripod headlights for Cibes many years ago for exactly the same reason. I don't think you would need additional driving lights for road use though.

Re: Wanted - front overriders

Try working with Bill Telford! I was helping him replace his gearbox and was lying under his car. Every time I put a tool down, it was picked up, cleaned and put away even though I hadn't finished using it! This is his bench... https://i.imgur.com/ZBja3Jc.jpg This is mine... https://i.imgur.com/86yY...

Re: Magnetic speedo sensor

I was thinking of using a cable drive speedo so the actual speedo would be more authentic, but never got round to it. Perhaps one day!

Re: 289 build

I can't remember if there is an arrow on it, but a quick sook/blow shows which way to fit it.

I have one in my T5 gearbox.

It is mounted to the left of the gearbox close to the gearlever.

Re: Magnetic speedo sensor

Hi Simon,
Can you not use the drive from the gearbox? It would be far more reliable.
