    You don't need the header tank to be at the highest point, you just need the filler to be there along with a take-off for the pipe to the header which can then be anywhere you like.

    This is expected behaviour for an LSD - the diff locks, the tyres break traction and you (probably) get some oversteer; it's not related to preload. Or did I miss your point?

    Difficult to say not knowing exactly what you have but assuming the bottom end is all good - maybe a pair of iron heads (Sportsman II) and matching roller cam. New inlet and carb only if needed....

    I think they are optical rather than Hall-effect. Just an LED and a sensor. Only need to bring three wires out. The advantage of doing it this way is that there is nothing left in the distributor...

    When my Unilite module like that went phut I just brought the sensor wires out and used them to trigger an external box such as a Pirana. Way cheaper and it's run for years like that. Another...

    Might be worth talking to these folk. The owner, Nick Acton, helped me out shipping some items from the states and seemed a good guy.

    Just about any thread sealant should do, it's a low pressure system.

    Tapered threads do need thread sealant unless they are 'dry-seal' threads. This is the difference between NPT and NPTF threads...

    I can recommmend Felsted Cables for high quality stuff. I believe they used to supply the F1 teams.

    You will need to change the flasher unit to a newer electronic type. LEDs are polarity sensitive (they only work one way) but this should not be an issue if they are designed as a plug-in...

    A nice looking car but, registration aside, a bit of an oddball - a 5.2L Rover engine must be a pretty special beast but it's only putting out the same power as a very average Ford or Chevy and...

    I'd be surprised if someone out there can't give you a default get-you-going curve (MSD?). The LS model comes with both preset curves and custom ones too. You can optionally run vacuum advance and...

    Reg numbers

    I realise that Q,I and Z have special significance in UK registration numbers and these were not used as year letters, but why was there never a 'U' reg?

    Just wondered.

    The 'standard' recommendation from Ram was 300lb (2x150) per side and various people have described that as too soft so 450lb looks like a good number.

    Car trailer plans

    I don't know anything about the company but I like the look of this trailer for Cobras. The price includes DXF files for laser cutting so quite a lot of design work saved.
