    I saw this by accident last night, I guess on a repeat on ITV. Your car was looking good!

    Hoping for better weather at Goodwood too! Was rather wet at Silverstone at times...
    Only at Revival on the Sunday this year, and going in the cobra is looking unlikely at the moment, but we'll see.

    I did a bit of double checking, and I think a 3.5 sump, pick up pipe and dip stick will all just fit onto an otherwise standard 4.6 RV8.
    Swapping to 3.5 parts should solve your problem.

    Most people have fitted a front cover, oil pick up pipe and sump from an earlier car to a 4.6 RV8 block, so have solved the problem that way, but typically have used a distributor.. The standard...

    Silverstone Classic is that weekend too. Guess which one I'm booked in for :wink:
    Pity, as I really like the Helmingham Hall show too.
    I'm hoping I can make it to Starwing (or wherever is decided)...

    Year of Manufacture is 1983 for me. So 2 years to wait. I hadn't realised, so I'm grateful for the advice too!

    Sandblasting followed by 2 component epoxy mastic is a good chassis paint, but many of these epoxy mastic paints are not UV stable so might need a coat of another paint over the top. Be wary about...

    Black with white stripes, Haddenham

    I saw a good looking and sounding cobra today at 3.10pm. Black with white stripes, just by the crossroads in Haddenham, Cambridgeshire. Hope you were both having fun!

    I replaced my front shocks not that long ago. As I recall, I did "need" spring compressors, as the spring was still under a bit of compression even with the base wound all the way down. I figured...

    Hi Jim,

    For the shims, aiming for 0.05 degree toe in on either side:
    Nearside: 110 * sin(.43-.05) = 0.73mm
    Offside: 110 * sin(.5-.05) = 0.86mm

    Have fun ;-)

    Cheers, Richard

    Hi Jim,
    Any pictures of this? It's something I've been thinking about trying to do (convert 4 point to 6 point), but hopefully without too much major surgery on the seat... I had some ideas about...

    Hi Grumbleweed, that does look like the correct radiator that was used on the Sumos, and they are used upside down! Quite rare now. The end tanks are plastic too if I recall correctly. I suspect...
