hi chaps, im back on the road after a 2 year rebuild, so looking to get back to meets. if i gather right from the recent posts, its 2nd sunday after midday at the balck boy and last thursday at the moat house (though what time?). any confirmation of these 2 and any other meets would be appreciated !! todat its blazing hot, i have nowt to do so i might go to black boy anyway...just on the off chance.

The car has a new engine, box, cooling system, home made power clutch, suspension, wheels etc etc and none of it matches the old stuff, so whilst it is road legal (just), its not exactly sorted, so lots of opportunities for advice on setup, tuning, overheating... the list goes on. looking forward to raiding your brains over a pint.

cheers, Andrew

p.s. local cob owners - im happy to meet anyone anytime so if you have a bored evening give me a bell - 07525 041140. text if u cant get thru (i have a temo phone problem) and il call u back

chaps - if memory serves its the wythall classic car meet 2nd sundays over the winter months - but thats a clash with our local meet at black boy ??? we'll never get all 100-200 wythall cars to the black boy but we could go there (in convoy even) - cant be more than 5-10 miles between the 2 and if you havent been to wythall its well worth a look. at britannic assurance buildings from 12 or is it 2 pm ???

any interest call me - 07525 041140 so long as dry/ish i'll be going this sunday 12th

p.s. sorry couldnt be at alcester this month

I think the concensus of opinion is to get in early doors at Wythall( starts at 11.00am) and then move onto the Black Boy for about 1.00.....

This, of course, is curry effects/hangover dependent.:mrgreen:

Cheers,

Tony

For what gearbox? If it is a Tremec then they are easily obtainable from the USA.

Hi Wilf, The gear box is an LT77, Rimmer Brothers told me a 20 tooth was the smallest for this gear box:confused::confused::confused: If any one knows different, then please let me know.
