Re: Escort Spring Shackles

Thanks for your reply. The ones I saw were from motorsport tools and they are £23 but the capri ones from cci are £70 or something like that. Very pricy. Can martin get new ones cheaper?

Re: Important ! Ref fuel tanks

Are these tanks always going to be available now or was it a limited run? I do want/need one but I need lots of other bits as well so I need to know where it should be on my priority list.

Re: 2.8 Shell Project

Ok so this is my first proper update in a while. I am no longer doing RX8 independent rear suspension, nor am I doing a Jag V8 or V6, and not even a Volvo 5 pot. I’m going back to basics. I’m using excruciatingly expensive standard parts. Why? Well I have money for my project, but not much space or ...

Re: 2.8 Shell Project

I think you have made the right decision. The closer to original that you can keep it the more it will be worth. Absolutely. However it is a lot more expensive. I could probably have bought a minter by the time I'm done. I don't like saving money though and i already have this one. It will be nice ...

Re: 2.8 Shell Project

Hi, Yes i noticed today. They look awesome. CCI want £288 for their new fuel tanks. Is Martin any cheaper? I'm aware they are £240 to members too. I was wondering if the concours guys will be buying them and have a spare tank to sell. It's not that I'm doing my build on a budget but i do have a long...

Re: Rollover jig

Hi there, I know some people make them out of heavy duty engine stands which would be interesting. I had thought of making one from scaffolding as there are websites that sell all the elbow joints and such, also wheels! Plus you can take it apart when not needed. I wanted to make one of those CJ Aut...

I know to steer clear of cheap Ebay ones and especially the make your own route :roll: My question is this; which brands good and which should I...

Re: Power Steering Rack

Power Steering Rack

Hi guys,

I need a power steering rack and I was just wondering if there were any other racks that would fit from say, a Mondeo or Sierra? The angle of the shaft that goes into the column looks the right angle on most but then there's the track width but the rods are adjustable so....any ideas?

Re: 2.8 Shell Project

That's very helpful thanks. How did you find out about the injection tanks? Maybe I should start hounding CCI about it.
