    Thanks guys.
    I'm not too enthused by Hylomar mainly because it doesn't set, bit worried about it getting into the fuel. Bear in mind I'm sealing the panels with gaskets (viton) the sealant is just...

    Doesn't this auto adjust by nut 1273 getting actuated if arm 1264 moves too far? In which case that that instruction is just the initial position.

    Don't make the mistake of only focusing on the front brakes, with a lower CoG a cobra can use better brakes on the rear. If you can lock the fronts OK then look at the rear, must be possible to get...
