Re: Collapsible Steering Column

Good suggestion MarkyB!

hmm would be interesting to try and find something that would marry up well!

Alas no way around the regulation.. any cars undergoing modification or increase in engine displacement have to be fully inspected by rta approved automotive engineers and the new laws are tough!

Re: Radiator dimensions

Thanks everyone for the replies! haha I'd still love to know how long, tall and especially how deep a standard moggie radiator is though.. I was thinking if I did a stacked setup I could use a radiator like so: http://www.nationwideautoparts.com.au/order.php?partid=1&makeid=34&modelid=318&detid=1249...

Re: tightening tie rod ends

but it feels spring loaded..
how would hitting the top push it down and surely that is counterintuative to it's function.. isn't it spring loaded and supposed to rotate?

Re: tightening tie rod ends

thanks for the reply..
sorry i don't quite get what you mean "tap the track rod end onto the steering arm"

would a clamp work? i.e. clamp the top of the track rod end and the nut as tight as possible then turn the nut by a spanner and do the clamp up tighter?

Thanks,
