    Re: Engine and gearbox mounts

    Soon after finishing my Mk2 I shredded the fan doing an emergency stop. Problem solved by altering the gearbox mount to use a Triumph Dolomite block.12600

    Re: De-cambered rear springs

    It could do, but if the lower mounting point is raised they would also be working at a shallower angle so less effective.

  9. Re: Do you know much about the Ford i4 8 valve DOHC engine?

    Look on the bottom side of the back of the thermostat housing, a bit awkward to get to. If two sensors present the other is a separate one for the fan.

    Re: Roadster for sale, as in current Pitstop

    1209612097This appears to be the same car that was at Hindhead in 1982 but with a different registration number. The mould may be linked to the company that was later connected to the Latham F2.
