    I own rf 105 Jim and I would be almost certain it is a ford escort rack, I think cortina racks have a different mount. Jim

    Bump steer

    You don't have to make it that complicated. If you shoot the laser 90deg out from the wheel onto a target (sheet of paper). Draw a centre line on the paper ,pump the wheel up in the working range any deviation off the line is bumpsteer. Adjust to the minimum amount of deviation.

    Steve's GT-R Build Thread

    Like what you are doing Steve. I wont tell you how to suck an egg but on your bracket cut the side down on the side with the cut out for the hose. If you cut back to the cutout then taper off to the outside to about 10mm it will trim the fat. It will be plenty strong as it looks like 3mm thick...

If it does it with the cable off its at the carby end with it on its at the pedal / cable.You need to isolate why it does not snap back on its own. I use a teflon lined cable /no lube required. I would agree...

    Oil cooler placement

    On my 40 I put one either side of the transaxle towards the rear and did some covers on the front to take a hose down to the underside of the car. The lower ducts are attached to the lower arms so they are at a constant height and have never been wiped out. It works very well, but I do not run...

    Shift linkage

    Part 27 would be mounted to the firewall. Make the rear box linkage then 31 ends up just being the bit in between to make the link is the way I would attack it. 31 being in top and lower drawing. You will know how far 31 move for and aft once 40-41 are made and fitted. Jim

    4 piston callipers & 15” wheels

    Ryan Reading your post I gather you are scratch building. If you are going to do this properly you make it fit the wheel you have. If you are thinking the wheels are scrap then you need to sort your wheel issue first. Whitehourse ind make spun alloy rim halfs. You start with the wheel, the...
