Re: Vee belts alternative parts for pre 85 LC engine.

Is it the water pump pulley size that creates the difference? Are they different?

Re: How do you check Castor Angle?

I have some turntables for the front if you want to borrow them. Just a matter of then getting the back at the same height with bit of plywood.

Re: How do you check Castor Angle?

I've got the same gauge. The trickiest part is getting it to fasten on - magnetic!

Re: Restoration show 2023

Yep - hindsight is always perfect! But I do wish, of course, that I'd had a "well-man" check when I passed 60 (65 now). To be honest, given that 80% of men die with it or of it, it's shameful that there is still no screening in place. Rant over! :D

Re: Restoration show 2023

Thanks Bryan. That's one of the worst things - I feel fine at the moment - no real symptoms!

So to all you men of a certain age - get your PSA levels checked!! :D

Re: Original Elite press release from 1974

Think I'll have one!! I've never seen the "bonded aluminium" version of the radiator - very interesting. I wonder if any still exist? Great document Richard - thanks for sharing!

Re: Restoration show 2023

Thanks Tony. It's a fairly aggressive type but hopefully will respond OK - too far gone for surgery though. It's the possible side effects of the radiation that's worrying me now :(

Hope for the best, plan for the worst!! :D

Re: Identifying a window connector?

Rists used to make the harnesses. A company called 3 Way Components still appear to offer some components and may be able to help.

Re: Restoration show 2023

Hi guys - sorry but I need to retract the offer of my car for the show. It's almost certainly going to clash with my prostate cancer radiotherapy :(.

Sorry

Re: New fans and a question.

And I have a water pump body that has been modified to run with an electric pump if you're interested.
