  1. I have their 3 ton trolley jack and it is fantastic for the money.

    IVA Steering Shaft Angle

    No I’d say it’s very similar I shall take a photo tomorrow night when I’m in the garage for you. Yes those photos dont don’t look anywhere as close to the manifold lol maybe loose the cable tie for the throttle cable on the brake pipe too. It’s all the silly little things they will look for.

    IVA Steering Shaft Angle

    On another note they may pick up on that brake pipe running directly over the manifold if the fluid boils not good. I routed mine from the tunnel and turned it right along the servo mounting plate then brought it down the chassis rail to the master cylinder then went to the scrap yard and pulled off the aluminium exhaust heat sheid from under a car and cut it up and Formed it into shape between the servo/master and the manifold to prevent heat soak.

    IVA Steering Shaft Angle

    My 2b also only cleared the manifold by about 5mm but nothing was mentioned. I know he had a good look at the steering rack as he noticed I’d forgot to fold the tabs over on the locking washer on the triangular joint. Mine went through Iva last summer but most likely depends on the tester.

    fed up

    I used the following from eBay as it’s got Velcro on so wraps around and holds itself in place and has worked great even with my clutch cable running through the middle of the manifold. On my winter list to change for a longer cable just for piece of mind really. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/12mm-75mm-Heat-Shield-Shroud-Aluminized-Line-Sleeving-THERMO-SLEEVE-EXPRESS/152499888003?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131003132420%26meid%3D2f79ab2f2f524dbbbdf0124e781d5a68%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D3%26sd%3D263832835660%26itm%3D152499888003%26pg%3D2047675&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851

    IVA spec worries

    That’s genius lol i used a heat shield to get mine through I’ve and the edge of the heat shield has some aluminium u trim on it.
  8. Its coming together now and looking amazing
  9. I can highly recommend a tin of acf50 it’s used a lot in the aircraft industry as can be used with all sorts of materials and doesn’t conduct so it excellent for spraying inside all wiring connections I’ve used it in every one on the kit.

    My IVA fail

    Well done it sounds like that is a good fail sheet I’d be happy to come away with that. As you say the presentation of the car goes a long way to getting the tester on your side. You will have the items ticked off in no time. If you haven’t got the original steering wheel let me know I have the original Sierra one from my Iva for sale.

    Type 9 quick shift kit

    So you only moved the ball the thickness of that c clip? I thought it needed to be about 7mm?

    Type 9 quick shift kit

    That’s a pretty good suggestion. Thank you
  13. Hi I’m looking to fit a Quickshift on the kit. Now I think I’m going to follow the Dave Andrews post and convert my original stick unless someone has a secondhand one for sale. Otherwise does anyone have the metal spacer plate from the kits kicking about they don’t want and before I order one. I think it will be much easier and neater than trying to fill the gap after spacing it with nuts. Many thanks Mike.
  14. Def do the trailer option fortunately I have access to one so used it for my Iva just piece of mind that you will at least get there! A rolling road road session is well worth the money whilst on mine it wasn’t running quite right and I too had the accuspark plugs in. They whipped them out and fitted some good old ngk plugs and that made a huge difference to the running. Maybe worth a try.

    Pinto immobilizer

    It’s most likely not going to be needed but something as simple as a wire and switch that will take all of 10mins to fit for added piece of mind I feel is worth it.
