    Very frustrating for me. I don’t want to SORN the car even though it’s off the road. It’s in my brothers double garage and needs a mere half days work to get her mobile as she is still taxed,...

    Yes I saw that and posted about it elsewhere.
    I would assume the classic is also postponed seeing it takes place within a couple of weeks of the event proper.

    I bought the equivalent Edelbrock one I think. Similar flow, pressure and size. See how it goes when I fit it.

    Hi Pete. Nice to hear from you.
    I’m familiar with the facet pump as they are used extensively on aeroplanes. They are the constant pressure ticker ones with a built in filter that can be serviced...

    This was done to death in late January. Lots of useful info in that thread but it also started getting quite silly so the thread was ended and locked.

    I can definitely be there but not in the Cobra. Me working away for so much time has eaten into Cobra work, so I’ll be in the Audi.

    Getrag in a Dax

    Hey.

    Just fitted a Getrag 265 from an XJS into my Dax. What have others used for a gaitor for the gearstick? The round tunnel is causing me a couple of problems.
