Re: Radiator cap mod

Maybe you need a filler plug like a stag on the thermostat (weld a boss / thread on or use Ford Fiesta thermostat cover? )and a Stag remote overflow bottle?

Re: Diff info

Alan, I always thought those big tyres on 15 inch rims plus 3.45 diff was a bit optimistic for a manual stag - they love to REV - triumph weren't daft fitttinga 3.7 to the manual - maybe the auto could have coped with a 3.45 although it really needed a 4 speed auto!

Re: Dropping the engine/gearbox...

If fuel tank is relatively low (normal in a PI) just wire up the fuel line onto the brake line and it should be OK
