Re: Halogen conversion kits

Mk1 headlamp wiring also runs behind the RH inner wing (in fact most of the wiring runs that way as the fuse box is located at the front of the RH inner wing).

Re: Gearbox swap

Depends whether your new box is an A type or J type. The longer type studs and spacers for the gearbox cross member are definitely required for a J type o/d (not sure about auto boxes as I've never has one!). It's made from 2 stud with a bit of plate tacked between so as Alec says you could easily m...

Re: Rocker shaft

Dave builds engines so he's not a parts supplier in quite the same sense as Rimmers or Chris Witor, but does have a stock of some parts including some NOS and parts he's had batches of made. If you need something there's certainly no harm in asking, if he doesn't have something I'm sure he can advis...

Re: Rocker shaft

"Triumphix-uk" is our Dave Harvey so would suggest that's the superior product.

Re: Door catch strap

I think it's the rears that are handed? Plus I think they are slightly different on Mk1 versus Mk2 too? (not hooked at the end?) - So that would be 6 different types.......... Anyway, they're all a pretty bad design, they angle at the bottom is too sharp and they fatigue and break off. I'm sure it m...

Re: Hand built racer

It interests me. :D
Looks almost comparable to Paul Newman's 'Le Taxi' in terms of engineering and specification although built to different rules.
Would love to see more pictures of how it's put together.

Re: Wanted, a driver's door mirror MK2 1973

There's lots of different mirrors about. TEX Automotive are quite common (and still available new), but unfortunately don't look like the ones on the car next to the pimento one on the front of six appeal (which looks damson to me). I reckon the mirror in question could be a Wingard or a Desmo possi...

Re: What a plonker!

Dim rear lights might mean you've done something to the night dimming relay if you haven't already disconnected it.

Re: Brake Master Cylinder [1968 2000 mk1]

Hi Alec, I'm glad I'm not the only one peeved with the ineffectiveness of the washer jets. I retained the single jets each side but fitted two pumps from the original single washer bottle with a separate hose from each pump to each jet, the theory being if one blocks slightly I don't get preferentia...

Re: new MK1 WHEELS

I guess it's the sort of thing people don't need very often. I binned a set of perfectly useable Mk2 steelies a couple of years ago as no one wanted them. I'm sure someone on here will have a Mk1 wheel (or a full set of Mk2 which are pretty similar just a smidge wider) surplus to requirements, eithe...
