my pleasure! can't wait to see it finished! in time for nice weather too! (Y)
Any tips on cleaning that BTW? I think I overfilled my oil a while back and it must have overflowed from some vent (probably built to protect the car from thickheads like me doing exactly that ) so the block on the alternator side is gunked up and looks a bit minging!didnt help me doing motorway speeds engine bay properly flooded now with oil cars still runin though.
thanks again for the visit!

for a thorough job i'd loosen the clutch cable, take out the pedal and oil all the pivots with engine oil and also work engine oil down the cable too.
Bit of a dredge up from the past, just wondering if you noticed any differences in the robustness of the clutch pedal assemblies polly? We have the Helix racing clutch in the car and the standard pedal is slowly bending over towards the centre console due to the large increase in pedal load and thus bending moments. Upon analysis the pedal assy flexes loads, so we're looking for another pedal to re-inforce........figured it good to ask if either was a better option to start with.
Thanks We'll work something out. Everything is custom these days..........that's what you get for pushing the envelope hehe
nice to see you back up
sounds like some good plans for the track
