Re: My 1967 Australian Squareback...

Ok, when I bought the car, it was obviously still wearing its Australian number plates. The guy I bought the car from, who actually imported it direct from Australia, drove the car up the M6 motorway from down south, cant remember exactly where but it drove along without any issues. On first appeara...

Re: My 1967 Australian Squareback...

This is my old squareback. I was the first uk owner and registered it at Preston DVLA office. When i purchased it, it was in pretty good condition but still had areas needing work. As a result, i decided to completely strip it down. It required welding to the rear inner wings, usual areas on a Type ...

Lowering springs??????

Does anyone know if the front springs on a 412 are the same as those on a 1302/1303, are the springs interchangeable as i want to lower the font end a little and know where i can get some shorter 02/03 springs?

Re: MY NEW 412LE PROBLEMS

That's disappointing, but if it ran well when it was running well (!), it's probably nothing too major. Most likely something electrical (and there's quite a bit of that in FI) is a bit loose. OK, a couple of likely problems that fit the symptoms. The injector plugs (I assume it's FI) can get loose...
