Re: Well I said I would.............

Many thanks, Roger and Ronald. Might I ask you two and anyone else with a view, I have looked at a picture of Roger's blue cobra (he said trying hard not to sound like a closet cobra stalker) and the grommet you use in the engine bulkhead is quite small, certainly the central aperture is small. On o...

Re: Well I said I would.............

Dear All, I am running a T5 Tremec gearbox with the speedo drive from the left side. How have members of the congregation run the speedo cable and brought it into the cabin area and up to the rear of the speedometer? Struggling to find a way that doesn't have drawbacks. Any help gratefully appreciat...

Re: Well I said I would.............

Sorry for the slow reply. You are very kind but credit me with far too much capability. I found a chap who welds aluminium for intake manifolds for BTC. I enjoyed my time in his workshop which was an eye opener. He has to keep the temperature within a few degrees as if not when he has put the multip...

Re: Well I said I would.............

I thought that I would deal with a couple of issues whilst I waited for some parts to arrive. The first item of business was to make a pair of aluminium heat shields. I know its not original but I rather liked the look and so started with some 1.5mm aluminium sheet and made some templates. The passe...

Re: Well I said I would.............

With respect of Roger's oil knowledge above, the gearbox oil has been replaced by Fuchs Titan 5005 oil and the Castrol LSD oil is now Axel LS 90. After the discussion above about long talks with salesmen and not placing an order I didn't dare go anywhere else than OPIE Oils who were extremely helpfu...

Re: Well I said I would.............

The same as in my GT500 Mustang? wait a second I will just pop into the garage and check. Damn the tach has gone and the rest of the car is missing as well. By the way, this post is powered by Mustang envy. :D

Re: Well I said I would.............

Um yes, and err um no, its actually a Faria, exactly the same tach but just badged differently and comes out of a speedboat of all things. It was $63 including postage from the US on their Ebay. Best of luck. My appreciation of the finer points of the IVA is lacking, but do the congregation have any...

Re: Well I said I would.............

Electrical wiring This task has been ongoing for a couple of years and is a saga along the lines of Beowulf with the loom as Grendel's mother. It started with a wish to have a loom that looked similar to an original in that it crossed the bulkhead and was a combination of cloth covered and PVC wirin...

Re: Well I said I would.............

Hello All, A new bathroom rather put a crimp in the build schedule, that is probably putting a wish to get into the garage at some point during the weekend a little high, but one job I did manage to finish was the issue of the felt bushes in the MGB steering column. I had a number of MGBs in my yout...

Re: Well I said I would.............

Dear All, Thank you all for the help above. as I am trying to get the dash in the right position I am looking for the most original mirror to mount on the dash (before anyone gets their hopes up that this thread might be drawing to a close it, no such luck) and was wondering what anyone thought? CM
