  1. I previously used a microswitch with a roller on the end of the arm. It kept moving relative to the pedal and was hard to adjust. My brake lights were either always on, or not working at all. I was glad when I finally sacked it off.
  2. I used a motorbike rear brake switch. It's got a spring on it that's pulled by the brake pedal. Works far better that the microswitch I used before and it's easy to adjust should the need arise.
  3. The North East area meet has now moved to the last Tuesday of the Month.
  4. The area meet formerly known as Warks, Worcs and West Midlands. Still on the last Wednesday of the month (next Wednesday), same venue and time, 6PM onwards, Malt Shovel Pub, Coventry Road, Nr Stonebridge, Coventry, CV7 7HL Entrance to the pub car park is off the A452 Chester Road heading North 50 yards from the island. Everyone welcome. See you there.
  5. I think if you don't go single donor and age related plate, you can IVA as a Q plate and the emissions are more relaxed.
  6. Zetec and bike carbs, best value for money.
  7. No, you need to release the distributor clamp bolt and rotate the distributor in the engine block to adjust the ignition timing. You need a timing light to set the timing to the correct figure.
  8. The distributor body has a notch in the top and the cap has a location feature that fits in it. The two spring clips that hold the cap on should engage with the same amount of effort. If one is more difficult, the cap isn't on correctly.
  9. Yellow should fit. Green should be symmetrically opposite. The fact it looks to fit around the yellow one suggests it might not be, so needs checking carefully. Blue won't unless you fitted the complete panel in place of the original metal panels which is likely to be a big job.
  10. The won't fit, they don't have a down turned flange to mount to the side panel.
  11. The curved edge below the tape measure in the first photo matches the curve in the side panel in front of the wheel. Depending on how your side panels were fitted, you might get some small gapping here.
  12. Dolomite based S7. https://nw.rhocar.org/identification.htm What about veneer covered ply for the dash?
  13. These are the tubes that come with the Superspec roof. 1799851615_Hoodtubes.pptx
