    Hi Gary,
    I had a 1986 DAX and the car ID was M3R 207. I used the VIN from a 1977 Jaguar donor car and had no issues with MOT / DVLA / V5.

    Cheers

    David, it could be heat soak from the engine causing the petrol in the carb to boil over - I used a phenolic spacer under the carb to insulate it. If you have fuel injection it won't be heat soak!

    I think the time has come to sell my Dax Cobra which I've owned for 10 years. It's based on a 1977 Jaguar series 2 using the suspension / 2.88 powerlock diff.

    I thought the original colour was Alicia blue and was renamed Viking blue to make it sound more manly for our American cousins.... could be wrong of course....

    I made my own 'bracket' and my alternator is a Lucas ACR18 which doesn't give that much output but it's enough for all my needs.

    Looks like it's gone up to £45! I think I'll bite the bullet and order an edelbrock from Summit racing. It looks like all the UK suppliers are out of stock..

    Hi Russell,
    I don't want to go with having an ignition control box as I'd like to keep the coil and looking period. The MSD 8598 also has a steel drive gear for a roller cam and it would eat my iron...

    As others have said, probably not wheel bearings but too much end float due to which thickness spacer has been fitted. You need to buy the correct spacer (up to 0.150") to give you an end float of...

    Apparently the bearings in the diff just have preload and rely on the oil for cooling. The hub bearings would just overheat I guess. Front wheel bearings don't have this problem, just back the nut...

    Thanks Drammyboy,
    Not sure what you mean about 'spacer at other side'? In the erareplicas link, it's shown as a 'seal race' and looks hard up against the hub. Got to find out why mine doesn't........
