  4. Re: More fluid leakage repairs and handbrake MOT fail & fix!

    Wouldn't it be stronger and more reliable to have adjusters swaged on to the cable rather than relying on a blob of weld. In twenty plus years of sailing dinghy's I never had or saw a failure in that...

    Just get them powder coated with the wheels. Can't imagine that it will cost much more.

    Re: Sportster gearing revs and differentials.

    Hi Steve
    As David says 1st gear is a bit of waste regardless of diff ratios. I have read somewhere that a close ratio box was offered on some of the 325i models but I've never researched that...

    Re: Sportster gearing revs and differentials.

    Mike Garner I think tried a 3.14 in his Cabrio but found it too tall...

    If I've got the correct ones in my head they were offered by YKC as an accessory . Regret that I have no idea whether they had them manufactured or by whom.

    Re: Engines

    I personally have reservations about seeing any significant increases in fuel economy whatever the powerplant due to the lack of aerodynamics. Sure, you might reduce the weight and increase the bhp...

    I don't believe there's an 'environmentally friendly' engine out there, not even electric. It will depend on your budget/skill level and time. It can get...

    I think the original idea was closed cell foam strip of maybe 3mm x 20mm bonded to the forward edge of hood, full width. Other members have used 'D' section rubber again full width and either side of...

    Kit Spares [think they are part of GBS] have a cable with a 90 degree formed outer sheath at one end to clear bonnet. Might be of use.
  25. Re: Roadster: 2ltr Ford Pinto engine with fast road cam

    Pity that they cannot even get the basics right! Now described as a 2L DOHC Ford.
    At that price my Alfa powered one with 5 speed has to be worth at least double.
