Re: Remove rocker cover on PI

Don't disconnect the petrol lines; undo the keeper plates and they pull out.

Late engine X-Member

I need to modify an early X-Member to take a later style 1-3/4" SU manifold. Where do I drill the new holes? Can anyone please give me the centre to centre distance new holes to old holes? I know that the later X-Member has the earlier holes partialy punched. Also am I correct in saying two distance...

Re: Upgrading brakes

The Monarch conversion uses BMW 525 vented discs (redrilled mounts) and Mazda RX7 aluminium calipers. You can get the calipers in the stats (reconned) for about $180 (a pair). You then need a spacer to mount the caliper onto the mounts. Stag is an easier upgrade this gives a couple of benifits. :D

Re: Something's draining the battery

The cigarette lighter is down by the gearstick and there is a bulb in it that comes on when the lighter is removed.

'd forgotten about the P.I. tank, but as it's only the fuel return , it could be teed off to one of the breathers if necessary. Ideally, as I said a donor car is the best way to go.
Thought the PI tank had a integral swirl pot? :?
