  1. I have bought a S7 (I think) that is damaged and need some parts.The car is monocoque construction with double wishbone front and live axle rear. The parts I need are Nosecone,cycle wings which i,m thinking I will have to get from Robin Hood?. Also one of the rear coil springs is missing, can anyone tell me what car this is off?. I also need a streering rack and one of the lower front wishbones is damaged needing replacing. I would be grateful of any help and advice you could give. I will try and upload some pics.

    Twin Webers

    Just fitted a pair of webers to my 2B 1600 pinto. It wont rev past about 2000 rpm.The carbs were used when bought and I think came from a 1800 Alpha. I'm thinking they will need re- jetting, if you agree can you suggest correct jet sizes etc.
