    Andy, 12000 miles in 5 years ! That's fantastic, you're obviously getting a lot of use out of the car & that amount of miles is a testament to the build quality. Great work :) Kind regards Julian

    MSD 6-AL spark test - scary results !

    Thank you all for your input & suggestions. My new digital 6AL is installed & fully operational. I would have liked to send the old unit back to MSD for repair but shipping costs & import duties add a lot to the repair costs so it was cheaper to source a new unit here in the UK. The digital...

    Driveshaft phasing with CV joints

    Thanks Jac, I appreciate your clear explanation. I apologise, I didn't word my post very well. I should have made it clear that the half shaft has CV joints at both ends. Do the two CV joints either end of the half shaft need to be aligned with each other to avoid phasing? Or am I right in...

    Driveshaft phasing with CV joints

    Dear All, When assembling CV joints on half shafts, should we be mindful of phasing? Does phasing only occur when using U-joints? Am I right in thinking the Constant Velocity joint eliminates phasing, regardless of its orientation? Thanks in advance for any input. Kind regards Julian

    MSD 6-AL spark test - scary results !

    I have heard of other failures but I should add my MSD ignition system has run faultlessly since I installed it 16 years ago, I've driven numerous track days, sprints etc. Sorry if you've had a bad experience with MSD, I guess QC isn't what it used to be.

    MSD 6-AL spark test - scary results !

    Thanks Randy, I think you are right, the 6-AL could well be the problem. The coil, leads plugs, rotor arm & distributor cap are all new. The inside of the distributor was corroded somewhat & this has been properly cleaned & serviced. I forgot to add, the rev counter is going haywire, even...

    Header tank plumbing

    Dear All, When plumbing in a header tank, do you take the outlet from the tank to; tee into the top hose? tee into the bottom hose? (water pump inlet) or direct to the water pump? Just wondering which is favourite. Thanks in advance for any input. Kind regards Julian
