    Rear Disc Caliper Mounting Plate

    Don't need it back. Once you've sorted out for yourself, you might think to run a few off either with the corsa caliper settings, or copy the sierra settings. I'm sure others might want to do similar.

    Rear Disc Caliper Mounting Plate

    this plate is for the sierra calipers from the sierra 4x4 that had discs on the rear, not corsa

    Stainless Steel Bonnet

    As previously said, 1mm cutting disk, but once you've marked out (over tape) where you want the cut, clamp a piece of bar or similar straight edge along the line then you 'rub' along the bar with the side of the disk as you cut.

    Newly Bought S7 - Questions

    firstly you need to decide which monocoque model you have, many people call their cars "S7" but that was only used for a very short time as Caterham took RH to court to get him to stop using it. go to http://nw.rhocar.org/identification.htmto find out which model you have, but be aware there were a few "one-off" whilst he experimented with different things.

    Fuel Gauge Troubles

    I still have the sierra sender in the tank, but bent and fiddled with the float wire until I got the best out of it, now it reads 3/4 full when it's actually full, but as it drops down below 1/2 it's actually spot on, so when it reads empty, you really need to pray that there's a garage around the corner.

    Advice On Tappets/valve Clearance Setting

    Valve clearances on a Pinto are ; Inlet = 0.008" (8 thou) Exhaust = 0.010" (10 thou) if you've set them at 20 7 25, it's no wonder they rattle.

    Best Polish For Stainless Steel

    The cheapest glass cleaner that you can get from the supermarket. Windowlean etc will leave smears. The stainless has a film covering it, so you don't actually clean the metal itself, just the surface of the film.

    Drums To Discs

    When I originally had them made, they were plasma cut. If someone is going to take on the job of getting some made, i'll send them this single one that I have if they want it for a pattern.
