    Re: Starter motor cable

    As the maximum draw would be around 450amps then the 485amp cable will leave a margin for overload.

    If you are fitting the terminals your self then make sure you get a good connection.

    That is a Marina shot but the plate should be in a similar position.

    Re: Triumph Roadster

    I would have thought if you have the right spec shock absorbers it would all
    work OK.

    Quite a few Mk1 cars have the rotoflex set up and as far as I recall no one

    If as I suspect JRR is using an extended Triumph column there would be an original sliding joint near the bulkhead
    which would allow you to refine the steering wheel position.
