My MDA MkII GT40 IVA'd and registered in 2009 has only done 1,000 miles in the last three years.
I have been busy with other projects, so it is time for a new owner to give her some exercise.
The build log is here under :- SteveB MDA Build diary, pretty much describes the car. This is the...
Check the points Bill raised. However I have put a restricter in the bypass that prevents too much flow. In the normal car layout the rad is close next to the outlet with minimal flow resistance, in a GT40 there are long pipe runs with greater resistance. The restricter ensures maximum flow to...
Due to the sudden loss of my wife Margaret from a stroke three days ago. I am not attending the hill climb on 16/17 August 2014 and the entry is in a class for GT40's and is paid up.
Who will take the entry and run 'for Margaret'?
Contact Pete Thompson via Enthusiasts Club he has the...
I have used my EPAS system on the road and on trackdays since it was fitted. The result is just better than I could have hoped for.
Parking and reversing is just a delight and the feel at speed remains positive and no trace of vague or wander , through tight bends hairpins it knocks seconds...
Right turn, the inside wheel is loaded less as the weight transfers, when power comes on there is a torque reaction from the prop shaft that loads the left wheel but unloads the already lighter loaded right.. smoke
On a left turn the torque reaction adds to the left but the right is loaded by...
John. Thanks for the information, I think the size would be an issue though the principal looks good.
I have fitted the replacement rod ends to the front wishbones. A test drive showed that I had fixed some of the chatter but there was more to do. There was still noise both back and front...
The reverse light switch fits in the gear shifter case on the gearbox. Hope the picture helps. The switch is pricy from Lambo spares suppliers like this, maybe from other sources.

There are couple of ways to deal with the clutch release arm / hydraulic cylinder. There is need to make allowance for the clutch pressure plate fingers sitting further out as the clutch disk wears.
It's been the case when there is insufficient clearance inside the bell housing that the...
Thanks for the input, all good points.
I looked at the Johnny joints but there are none small enough but the principal looks good maybe a rebuild-able rod end with polyurethane inserts is a product waiting to happen.
I had hoped to find a brand or type product that was particularly resistant to...
Just for interest the car in Dave Collins post with the registration 1MUF was at the Donnington Historic event this weekend. It was being loaded into it's trailer after damaging the gearbox in the event.
I have rose jointed suspension, that's the front top wishbone and all the joints in the rear.
Over time some of the joints have progressively started to transmit a slight chattering noise particularly when lightly loaded.
There is no discernible free-play in the joints just this noise. The car...
Here are some shots of what I did.
I found that fitting a panel to the inside of the clip with sealing against the tub keeps most of the water spray from the wheels reaching the door seals gives the door seals a chance
