Re: Wanted: Original and Superformance parts book/technical paperwork

Hi Elliot,
There are two parts to the JWA publication that you are looking for.
The parts and price list and the other has the illustrations.
Pricey if you can find them but worth it.

Re: fuel tank vents

We use them.
They are filler vents so require a non-return ball valve upstream to prevent them becoming drains if the car overturns.

Re: Jimmymac & Alistair's Cars

Tom,
Obviously a drain as you say but I have only ever seen one fitted.
One would assume that there is tube leading from it to the wheel arch somewhere.

Re: Winged Dzus fasteners

Whichever hot method you use to fit your Dzus wings you will need to make sure that you don't anneal those stud ejector springs.
Your safety depends on it.
