Re: CTECK battery charger.

Hi Ron I run the car all year round so just plug in between runs. As an aside I connect a much more basic unit to an 800ccA marine battery for 6 months or so every year without use that trickles out a constant 1 amp (no smarts), which I replace every 4-5 years although always in good nick, even thou...

Re: M90 engine overhaul

However I had trouble locating these and sourced through Carl Bennet at Korman Autoworks https://www.k...

Re: Group C JPS tribute build.

Is an Autosolutions short shift kit with a custom extension sleeve and custom delrin knob. I felt the shift lever as supplied was too short and required too much effort - hence the mods. Being longer also falls better to the hand. On a different note, I've always fancied a set of Simmons wheels. Whi...

Hi Denis I wish you all the best in your project. I built my own JPS tribute - see photos below. I guess what specs you build to is a personal thing and depends on how true to the real deal you want to be and how deep your pockets are.

There is a plastic expansion tank with 4 hoses connected. 3 are vents from the fuel tank filler neck (under/below the rubber flap), and the 4th connects to a fixed line that should/may run too a charcoal canister up front.

Re: WTB - Ignition Switch Assembly...

These do wear and given they are a bit of a pain to remove, especially if you haven't removed the shear bolts, in my opinion is something better off replaced with new. Once you have the whole steering lock out is very simple to swap over the lock cylinder.

The regulator goes to the front so can only be orientated one way Use rubber grease on the o rings and if they're old replace them. Insert the injectors in the fuel rail then once you have all lined up push down evenly with firm pressure to "pop in" the bottom o seals (to manifold). Make sure you ha...

We pay that plus per LITRE for petrol (has fallen about 30c in the last few weeks), after an all time high. Diesel is cheaper but then we have to buy roas user charges.

Re: Updating an M635csi Track Car to a Race Car

Not sure if you want to try and stay original. Have you considered a custom loom, deleting the dizzy, going to a 60-2 trigger with individual coils or wasted spark?
