Re: Wiring loom front end.

I may have misheard him? He said the Us spec looms were a couple of years behind the Euro versions? So maybe a 71 loom would be ok on US spec. Registration on mine is 70 so its more of a 69 I think. I may well Have all this backward. Ha

considered changing the column to original?
It looks like it was modded during the other mods. I believe it was so he didn't have the wiper switch on the dash. If I go back I'll have to remount the wiper switch on the dash. I don't fancy that to be honest.

Re: Newbie

Btw Jmarkha1 Your square is really nice. I can only find a pic of it on the trailer though. Do you have some completed pictures of the project? I'd love to see it all finished. It's a dream.

Re: steering wheel catching on indicator stalk

Ok, so it seem that the car originally came with a plastic large wheel as the indicator stalks and wiper stalks are on the column. This is blocking the wheel from turning with the old style d-ring steering wheel. My option appears to be plastic ugly wheel or aftermarket wheel. That is very disappoin...

Re: Newbie

Here we go. Image before is from the awesome interiors insta. I liked the image so did a d/l. As you can see I have quite a lot of work to do to get it looking right and the stance working etc. Put the chrome trim back on drop the front a little and get rid of those baby turbo mirrors. Which I hate....

Re: 2.0ltr on twin 44's

I mean manifolds are as standard for the carb set up. A 2ltr type 3 isn't normal. I'll investigate these options further. What I don't want to do is choke the lump. As that man says, shorter manifolds won't restrict flow. Only a smaller diameter will do that. I'm on a massively steep learning curve...

steering wheel catching on indicator stalk

Why is this happening. It's from a type 1 but it's the correct wheel for the car. Or is there a subtle difference somewhere I'm missing?
