    Comparative gear ratios in UN1-013 & UN1-07

    Hi Peter, With regard to the big spacing between 4th & 5th - this is from the worksheet tab "G50-xx & Mods". The standard G50 ratios are shown in the worksheet tab "Stock G50-xx". At the time, the cost of a higher final drive setup was out of reach, so I opted to just go with a higher 5th...

    Comparative gear ratios in UN1-013 & UN1-07

    I found that quite depressing - all that history, effectively stored outdoors & neglected for so long that the rust has just about won ! To restore, most cars would probably cost up to $1m, & then it would not really be a restoration - the original cars would only be capable of providing...
