    All very exciting. The car is now certified, warranted and registered (albeit with a temporary plate). In other words, we are road legal. Whoop, whoop.

    A whole set of questions.

    This post from way back in 2006 may help. https://www.gt40s.com/threads/original-bits-ii.17351/

    Show me your fuel pumps please! - Carb fed engines

    I'm using a pair of SW 240A. Not many road miles yet, but seem to keep up with a few spirited track laps. A bit hard to find, but crop on eBay now and then. Most will need refurbishing.

    Speedo calibration

    Now that the car is running I need to calibrate the speedo to get it road legal. I have a Smiths (Caerbont) electronic speedo and instructions to calibrate. I am using a sender that screws into the speedo drive on the ZF. i.e. tongue of speedo drive slots into groove in sender which, I guess...

    Ready to set off for Dunedin. Finally at home, but just for one night. Off to the certifier tomorrow for one of the many steps required to get it road legal.

    Classic Car Developments Chassis #3

    Pretty much the last piece of the jigsaw puzzle added - fire extinguisher plumbed in with internal and external pulls (hope I never have to use it). In its natural environment. At Teretonga Park race circuit for a testing session. A couple of electrical gremlins, one of which we sorted on site...

    Classic Car Developments Chassis #3

    Thanks Ian. Yes, it has had to be approved by the Limited Volume Vehicle Technical Association (LVVTA) who look at design, engineering and safety. They have given it their big tick so step one completed. It now has to be inspected by a certifier (who has been keeping an eye on the build over...

    Nothing special done. The axles are pretty much in a straight line from transmission to hub. We will do a proper shakedown at the track next week and see if we encounter any problems.

    Apologies for my poor video editing skills, but it is finally out of the workshop. No major problems encountered. Woohoo!

    Alignment etc

    Does anyone have to hand the original factory settings for the road cars ( toe-in, castor, camber). We have the JWA specs but would like to know the factory settings. Thanks.

    Classic Car Developments Chassis #3

    Not original equipment back in '66, but I figure I will need this skid plate to avoid speed bump rash. Woohoo! We have axles! The car is now drivable, or would be if we could get it out of the workshop. Need to move the D-Type and SSKs first. Next week...

    Classic Car Developments Chassis #3

    Some more progress this week. Luggage boxes taking shape, front number plate and exterior rear view mirrors on, rear number plate lights fitted (went for the LED bolts, but it really needs to be dark to see them), reversion plate and engine cover made and installed, along with the high level...
