    I believe the three-core version is AKA the export model. The Ram uses it as standard and all sorts of engines and power outputs have been used. Mine is around 300 hp and the only time I've seen it...

    An interesting alternative solution to the problem of dealing with the fan in-rush current is a simple soft-start circuit. You can do it with an extra relay and a big resistor.

    I presume there is some sort of pressure relief valve in the pump so it should not be difficult to reset it to match the rack if it is much different.

    65/030 (AKA 4.5mm²) is rated around 35A. Should do the trick.

    I fitted an alloy cover years ago when I first built my car and it wasn't really worth the trouble and I eventually refitted the standard pressing. The alloy part took a lot of work to make it flat...

    I agree, and fibreglass is not renowned for being rigid either. I think it is more to do with stopping the body from fretting (moving and creaking) against the chassis.

    If that top diff mount is, indeed, a hinge then that would allow for any angle built into the diff casing; you would just adjust the radius rods until the lower wishbone pivots were horizontal...

    You may have hit the nail on the head there. If the 'hidden' bracket allows the diff to swing fore and aft (rather like the original cage design) then those radius rods are just fine except that the...

    I have never understood the (American) obsession with making stuff out of billet. You end up with something rather crude and chunky to look at, hideously expensive and (in this case) less rigid than...

    You use a spare tyre as a source of compressed air; it uses very little. You could equally well use a propane cylinder and regulator to pressurise the system.

    BSPT is the tapered thread (both male and female). They may appear to be interchangeable in some sizes but the threads have different angles so they may not seal very well.

    It's on the water pump, just behind the pulley and above the large radiator return. A threaded hole 3/4" NPT I think.
