    Thanks for that Jon.
    I wonder if it’s possible to get hold of the shims separately, reckon I could make (or get made) the other parts quite easily.

    That's interesting, so using this axle reinforcement is likely to cause the same problem as this is clamping both inner races onto the stub. Mind you isn't that the same arrangement you have on the...

    I guess if you've run out of other things to spend your money on these won't do any harm. Having the centre nut torqued up TaF would probably make you feel more secure. Wonder what if the end float...

    Not sure if that solves a problem nobody has. The stub axle is made to support a car with much more weight (and hence inertia) than a Cobra kit (I hope). Endfloat is adjustable by tightening the...

    Fairly common (popular even) on motorcycles.
    Had one in my Merc', after replacing found the issue wasn't the battery so it's going back in as it has higher AH & CCA numbers.

    I've never understood the concept of cup holders in a car. Never allowed drinking or eating in any of my cars, it's never going to end well is it? Similar feelings with ashtrays.

    Yeah but from their normal bases they could reach any offender in the UK within a very short time in a Typhoon and teach them the error of their ways and be back for tea and medals just as quickly!

    Was thinking last night I'm sure I've seen units with pump combined with swirl pot (and possibly gauge sender) in tank. You beat me to it. Guess it depends on the geometry of the tank though.

    I’ve recently fitted a pump into my tank but it’s only a lift pump (low pressure) which feeds into a swirl pot, the HP pump is external.

    Sounds like you have some out of roundness as well as eccentricity as you only have .004 TIR in the vertical (assuming your 0° was zero, don't think you say) but .013" in the horizontal.
