Re: Winter projects

Would be interested to know how you get on with the MSD or similar. I have Holley which is doing the job but suspect an EFI would help improve power and response. I get some spit back thru the carb when cold and engine under strain - which is not a particular problem - just have to maintain revs whe...

Re: car electrics

I bought my loom from S-V-C together with all the electrical components. I think I may have saved a little but it is worth checking what is included in Gerry's package. I don't think I properly understood what was included and the effort to fit a modular loom was a bit painful at times - the real is...

Front suspension geometry

Reading the setup of Jag suspension with interest. Am now working thru some fine tuning on my Hawk and having just added poly bushes to front am about to realign. From what I can see on past articles I should be aiming for -0.8 camber at front. Neutral castor (I.e. Just go with Hawk setup?) but not ...
