  1. Have a look at this old thread for info
  2. What I should have said is it won't be a straight swop - different MT75 boxes. Re drill the fly wheel for a ford 2.0 DOHC cover plate (it's deeper and designed for a cable clutch) and fit a DOHC clutch. While the box is out change the spigot bearing for one that fits correctly - either a new bush or I think someone sleeved a ford one to fit. Then change out the thrust bearing, the 2.0 DOHC one will now fit as the cover plate is deeper and does away with the need for the bodged up one if you move the fork pivot point forward (done right this will also get rid of the fork rattle). As a last thought while the prop is off get it balanced - I don't think the originals were. Steve
  3. I think the superspec box is an MT75 V6 LHD box
  4. As Alan say's you want the 420 sump, the one I got was pressed steel not alloy so they must have manufactured both. An old sump thread:- http://www.rhocar.org/index.php?showtopic=21990&st=0&p=174462&hl=sump&fromsearch=1entry174462
  5. Some bed time reading for you http://www.rhocar.org/index.php?showtopic=26387&hl=clutch The chatter / rattle is because the pivot end of the fork is held between 2 nylock nuts (one of them fitted the wrong way) Fitting a light spring to the clutch arm to keep the release bearing in contact with the cover plate helps alot with the noise
  6. Saw this thread and thought I would have a look - Channel 240 not supported channel 71 some other stuff on, re tuned the TV using auto tune, YES YES YES channel 71 is now Motors tv.
  7. Not been on for a few years http://www.rhocar.org/index.php?showuser=1220
  8. Good Idea and yes I have one of these as well.
  9. Use caution if using silicone near the lambda sensor it can poison them. http://www.ceradexproduct.com/techniquedetails.asp?id=12&edition=2 .Symptom of Poisoned or Damaged Sensors -Lead Poisoning Lead composite in the fuel may damage casing body as well as ceramic element inside. Immediate action to replace sensor and use only lead free fuels. -Excessive Carbon / Soot Deposits Soot produced by incomplete combustion of oil may cause blockage of frontal protection tube which lead to unstable and incorrect response time. Immediate action to replace sensor. -Silicone Poisoning Silicone contaminates the ceramic element in oxygen sensor which result in sensor functional failure. Immediate action to replace sensor and to use oxygen safe product.
  10. It Is the same, and your English is ok it's your Scottish that needs work
  11. Posting this in chit chat so non-members can see the post as they can't see posts in members benifits. Used them again yesterday, must have saved £70.00 + this year well worth the £15.00 membership for this reason alone. Printed off the account number and sellotaped it to the back of my membership card, just handed him my card and said it's on this account - worked a treat.

    Hi Artie, Would have loved to go but the Hood is now Sorn
  15. ^^^^^^ +1 ^^^^^^ Wot he said
  16. And if you move the mounting points this would stay the same! the wish bone will drop until SOMETHING stops it dropping any further.
  17. Did you slacken off the tension on the spring ? Unless you slacken off the tension the spring will be trying to make the shock full length, with the spring loose you may be able to compress the shock by hand enough.
  18. Make one, it does not need to look fantastic and should not need to be that strong
  19. Just so you know the nuts on the zimmers are 60 mm AF
  20. If you move the bottom mount inboard you increase the chance of bending a wishbone if you say hit a pot hole. the spring platform is the bit the bottom of the spring sits on, zimmers have large nuts on to adjust this, compress the spring more the ride hight goes up but you may get to the position the spring goes coil bound under normal use. For spring compressors you will need motorbike ones, NORMAL car ones wont fit.
  21. Going to try to get across for a couple of hours in the morning - see you there
  22. Run the belts around the outside of the seats? The seats then don't become load bearing Steve
