Hi All
The Midlands Festival of Transport is now called the Weston Park Transport Show. It is on the 24th and 25th April. Entry fee is 3.00 for car, driver and passenger, so good value. Clubs can book but there must be a minimum of 4 vehicles and it is recommended to book as early as poss for the Weston event. Preferably at least a month before. There are different categories to cater for all types of vehicles. ie Classic sports cars, Kit cars etc. If you register to go, you have to be there between the hours of 11 to 4.30.
Anyone interested?
Regards
David

Its good to see someone else organise an event in our local area. Unfortunately I will not be able to attend this one due to other commitments, but I do hope other members support you, especially the West Mids members as it is right on their door step.
Just a little help with the advertising

In fact, Transtart organise lots of events in the Midlands and I hope I will be able to attend most of them.
Further info of this years events can be found at the following web site. Also watch the events forum for more details as I will post more info near the time of the event.

The fly wheel is super light and the pressure plate and friction plate are smaller than the standard RV8. I've not been able to get down to JE developments to get one, so the engine swap may stop for a while. I'm only able to work on the car for six hours on a Sunday. I also thought the price was a bit steep at 300 plus:rolleyes:

If it's a standard RV8 pattern going to a R380 or LT77 then try a standard clutch from an MGBRV8, it'll take at least 300BHP.

Given the price they want for a clutch you may be better off having the flywheel drilled to the RV8 pattern. My flywheel is superlight billet steel and the MGBRV8 clutch is fine.

Not checked it yet, I was going to replace it any way:rolleyes: But I do think I will struggle to get to Weston:mrgreen: when I order my new clutch and pressure plate. I will know more on Sunday when I remove the gear box from the 3.5 lump. I see Weston park is getting closer Nick have you got your tickets yet? Rob thanks for the loan of crane, I will be rebuilding the top of the new motor on Sunday, pop down if you want.

All the best threads get hijacked;), I seem to remember Mice and the ketching of, croping up in the most inappropriate places, a few weeks
agoNICK mate:rolleyes:. At least it bumps the thread to the top again.,

I had the same thoughts as Rob as to the spiggot bearing and the possible fragility of the flywheel but did not feel I had enough knowledge to comment (still don't:confused:)

Kind regards Lester

PS Russ, you grass:mrgreen:, anyway anyone going to Weston Park;)

I have been called things before but never Grass, yes Lester there is Grass at WESTON lots of it:mrgreen::mrgreen:. So who is bringing the camping stove and bacon, tea, coffee. It cost us a fortune for food on site last year. We have a small single burner but could do with a double to keep the water on. Now lets get back on thread, who knows what size the prop bolts are? I need to replace them because when I did the gearbox last year I put some Loctite on them, well quite a bit and now the nuts are lets say unusable. May be I will go easy on the loctite this time:rolleyes:
