  1. Is your gt40 coil a non ballast one being used with a ballast resistor circuit?
  2. See how much a set of new genuine ones are. They do wear out and loose their tension.
  3. Sounds like a few ups and down over the weekend there @MightyJoe. How bad is your car? Hard to see from the pics, boot lid and rear panel? I hope old mate who couldn't stop in time is insured and going to cover it.
  4. Cheers mate It makes a quite different smell more like when you fire a nail gun. I have thought how cool a plug in barbecue would be.
  5. Thank you Clint. Yes I'm very pleased by the prospect of increased range with reduced cost. I will look to do some timing trickery in the future but for the mean time things will be left as they are.
  6. This weekend the safety switch got wired up. I took the fuel pump off, made a blank plate to cover the hole, and found the original battery clamp. All went well so I took it off the stands and around the block for a quick drive. Awesome! so smooth, goes great, makes nice LPG smells. I'll see about getting it legal ASAP.
  7. Limited slip diff! Yes. It's the small Ford dream. I have a torque biasing one, I was sceptical about them but they are awesome.
  8. @MightyJoe, please tell me you have some Princess calipers, mk3 Capri rotors, and mk2 Escort sport drums. The fucked seal issue is because the master cylinder seals move further in the bore than they have previously. They run through all the crap that has accumulated there and die. As yowser said the seals were dead men walking regardless of what fluid you use.
  9. Gday mate. Re multiple belt pulleys I turned up a basic hub for my a15, then bolted a couple of old water pump pulleys I got from a wreckers yard to it. Worked out well.
  10. @MACKAZ I was just going through my Impco lpg carb book looking for something else and spotted the formula to work out the cfm of your engine at a given RPM. It's CID x RPM / 1728 /2 x .85 So 250 CID x 5000RPM (Optimistic) = 1250000 1250000 / 1728 = 723.4 723.4 / 2 =361.7 361.7 x .85 =307.4 Your 4.0 will sip about 310 CFM at 5000 rpm I'd put the 600cfm on TradeMe and put the money toward a more suitable carb. As a side note. Big carbs on small engines tend to run lean. They dont generate enough vacuum in the venturis to draw fuel out of the main jets. People put large jets in them to try and overcome this but the idle and transition becomes very unstable.
