    2B Wiper assembly

    Most people use the Lucas set up from a mini and some landrovers. Lots of info on here have a search.

    Age related plate

    Or just simply apply for the v5 for the donar.
  3. I’m not down south but have them on my pinto. Fantastic setup run very well and sound great. I’ve you want to save a lot of time and hassle there is a very well known company local to me called bogg brothers they have been doing these for years and will sell you a complete kit ready to bolt on. Alternatively you could just purchase the inlet manifold from them or carbs pre jetted etc. Cheers Mike.
  4. I have their 3 ton trolley jack and it is fantastic for the money.
  5. Sgs stuff is pretty good as well.

    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.
  11. Its coming together now and looking amazing
  12. 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?
