Re: UN1 Output shafts

Steve thank you for your comments.
You mention not fitting the windows then mention I must have side windows? A friend of mine has just past IVA with no side windows, please clarify?

Thank you
Mark

FBe very careful with regard to all the hoses on the car. Make sure they were designed for the purpose being used and are marked as such. Have supporting paperwork with you. Be careful with the rear number plate lights. If they impinge on any area that will be occupied by the number plate it will get a fail.
Be ultra careful with regard to the radius gauge tests. On the interior it is very easy to overlook something ...... handbrake levers are a classic failure. Also the bevels on some brands of gauges fail on the radius test.
Also make sure the headrests meet the current requirement. Tornado had to re-design theirs as they were deemed too small.
Please keep everyone posted as to how you get on as it helps build a pool of information.

Paul should the driveshaft on the UN1, coming out of the differential have any float (movement) at all? If so what is acceptable?

Many thanks

Mark

Hi Mark.

As long as you haven’t drilled any holes for side windows and you give the tester the ”appropriate” answer when he asks if you ever intend to fit windows you should be ok.

Re: UN1 Output shafts

Hi Mark,
Sorry for slow reply ..... I've been at the Autosport Show at the NEC.
The side window issue is a dodgy area. Some people have had cars fail because the examiner ruled that the car was designed to have side windows and therefore they need to be in place.
You may care to give Andrew Sheldon at Tornado and Mick Sollis at Southern GT a call and see what their current experiences have been. They both put customer cars through the test ...... although at different test centres.
I would be interested to hear their current views.

Re: UN1 Output shafts

Hi John,
Hope all goes well with your IVA.
Please post details of the outcome. Andy is well versed in the requirements and has built up a relationship with the test station he uses and is therefore able to address any minor points are raised. You didn't say if your car has side windows fitted. I know Andy has windows which are compliant.

I sure Mark (lots of postings above) would be very keen to hear how you get on.
