    I can't see why warming the brake fluid up by a few degrees would cause the brake fade that you are seeing. Maybe it's a symptom of air in the system?

    I think pretty much all production threads are rolled. Cutting threads is for one-offs.

    The diff may appear locked because of the preload; you'd need a decent size bar on it to get it to shift, particularly on the bench.

    You can get the diff re-ratioed to a higher ratio such as 3.07...

    Not sure I fully understand the question. Sounds like the ones you have are 7/16" so they must have used both sizes over the years. Maybe the smaller ones under a lighter car. I presume you would...

    I'm rebuilding mine at the moment, I built it in 1990 so much the same. I'll keep an eye on your progress.

    You don't need the header tank to be at the highest point, you just need the filler to be there along with a take-off for the pipe to the header which can then be anywhere you like.

    This is expected behaviour for an LSD - the diff locks, the tyres break traction and you (probably) get some oversteer; it's not related to preload. Or did I miss your point?

    Difficult to say not knowing exactly what you have but assuming the bottom end is all good - maybe a pair of iron heads (Sportsman II) and matching roller cam. New inlet and carb only if needed....

    I think they are optical rather than Hall-effect. Just an LED and a sensor. Only need to bring three wires out. The advantage of doing it this way is that there is nothing left in the distributor...

    When my Unilite module like that went phut I just brought the sensor wires out and used them to trigger an external box such as a Pirana. Way cheaper and it's run for years like that. Another...

    Might be worth talking to these folk. The owner, Nick Acton, helped me out shipping some items from the states and seemed a good guy.

    Just about any thread sealant should do, it's a low pressure system.

    Tapered threads do need thread sealant unless they are 'dry-seal' threads. This is the difference between NPT and NPTF threads...

    Reg numbers
