Re: Let the games begin ...

I have the outboard brake set up from Wards. The damper and spring pick up points are cock on, no UJ binding and the springs are permanently engaged even on full droop and don't require helper springs.

Re: Radiator Dimensions

They are stored on my PC as up to 6MB pictures and I click on the attachment tab and it scales them automatically to less than 300k. Is it a Mac thing maybe? I use Windows 10 and no issues.

Re: Radiator Dimensions

Hi Roger,
It wasn't big enough for the Ford V8 hence why I got Brise to make the bigger one that is now fitted and has worked fine for 4 years.
A chap who has a mild tuned Rover 3.5litre has that one now.

Re: Exhaust design.

Hi Peter, StSt, in particular 304, will be slightly more brittle than Mild Steel but nothing to worry about. There's no need in my mind to fit a flexible compensator. I've never heard of one being fitted to a Hawk and I've never heard of an exhaust failing owing to material fatigue. You'd also need ...
