    KwS's TVR

    I'm confident this will have adjustable tappets. It would pay to check them. Good luck and gods speed.

    Fancy new school engine won't go?

    Has it got good strong spark? Are the plugs clean and new? Is the battery in good condition and fully charged? Try and squirt a small amount of fuel into the intake and see if it will fire.

    Cletus' '68 Plymouth post car

    Recaros, yes! Its mandatory that they smell if weed, port royal, and pink nosed pitty cross puppies. Can you confirm this is the case?

    Anglia4's Austin 7 Ruby

    Hi Jeff, that little spanner is for old bikes, the smallest jaws fit the square headed bolts that hold the chain ring onto the crank. Vaguely related sharn: We had a motor grader at work that had the accelerator pedal to the left of the brake it was made in 1978. The lay out made for some excitement when I learned to drive it.

    Tube Notcher for old mate VG.

    Hi VG. Do you have a lathe? If you do it can be made to notch tube for a small investment.

    Beans Mk1 Escort.

    Good to see you back mate. So many big plans for this car! I had a look at Palmsides website after I spoke to you. ATB centers are $995. Seemed like good value.

    @bean.101 will know what to do. Have a look over the other end of this thread and see what you think. I'd be tempted to find some local pistons for a different engine that could be substituted.

    Brake imbalance

    Is it park or service imbalance? Front or rear?

    Rust repair - butt vs lap joints

    Why not both? It looks like you need to repair your Inner sill and floor section before you add the pillar and outer sill over the top. Seperate the floor pan from the inner guard at the seam in the left of the picture, overlap and plug weld it. Overlap the flat part of the floor pan. Butt weld as the factory have done down the left edge of the pillar and butt weld the sill at the right hand side. That's how I'd approach it.

    If you're lucky the clamps will break and you'll find the top plate deflects.

    The dream! So heavy though! We picked one up at work when Air NZ decided it wasn't something they wanted anymore. It was very hard to move. Sorry to spam up your thread.

    I think I brought one of those folders, then thew it into the steel skip at work. A nice 1.2m one would be awesome to own.

    I was just looking at your transmission cross member dilemma. Leave the crossmember where it is and work in reverse back to the body making a new body mount out of 3mm with a nice big reinforcing plate welded to the floor before you start. When it's done cut the forward and back bits of the mount off. Presto, crossmember stays in the right place and doesn't look so industrial. My 2 cents. *Edit* New sheet metal tool pics please especially folder.
