    thanks, ill have a poke around. it seems its hitting a stop as winder is not fully extended but the 2 stops in the hanes book are not touching. wonder if there is an early and late door as the car i have has been put together from a couple.

    Question for the GTO people, just installed he door rubbers on the green GTO and it seems the glass is too low in the fram by about 10mm to properly seal up to them? but ive tryed adjusting the glass up but still seems too low, can i slot the wholes in the door or is there another adjustment i'm missing. door are alined on the car within 2mm.

    Thought i should update the thread as i was here, yes the rover is still alive. went drag racing last December and was very surprised with the go of it. however i feel the 300,000K 3.9L maybe not so happy given he noticeably tap noise from the lifters. however rn i'm replacing the start solinoid because the one in the motor is hashed and i've found that the motor on the engine doesn't exist.. and the p6 one has one too little teeth... nope i have no idea what the flywheel is made from. so if i'm rebuilding the motor i feel i should you know... make it faster, i feel 11:1 pistons and a roller cam may help it go more. good news though the T5 box is still alive

    sorry no photos, Right so not been around for a while. but not been doing nothing. been thinking about the v6 and trying to avoid an ecu, bit different and run a carb. However how to run the ignition was my first challenge... Mitsubishi never made a carburated v6, what they did make however was a carburated 4 cylinder van... that shares a bolt paturn. the L300 2000 up year model to be exact... this got gutted and then was the hunt for a v6 cap that would not foul the fire wall... mazda had the solution and it was a mitsubishi part too so maybe it would share a roter shape?... nope slightly smaller rotor fitting nothing a file could not fix though. so now i have a huge cap, a rotor that firs the cap and now the shaft all i needed was a adapter and a reluctor... in comes the 3d printer. the base adapter took 5 attempts to get right for both hole placement and to aline evrything to keep it stright. the reluctor was a bit of a chalange seeing as i needed to add some metal for the pick up in the distributor to sence. took me 5 attempts to get the roller bearings (out of a nackered UJ)to be pick up (and not hit the internals). however its done... and tested. god damn works...on the bench using a honda civic coil
