Re: Inner wing mudshields

2.8 Spec to reduce road noise from the wider tyres fitted to them.
Easy to make from a bit of tin sheet & old door/boot rubber seal.
No need to fix to the outer wing if secured well inboard.

Re: Rear anti rollbar adjustment for 1 inch drop

What Bug said :!: I use the A-Frame kit which triangulates between leaf spring front mount eye/axle-to-spring/axle-to-front eye, this is the important bit of the rear suspension as far as lateral movement goes. The rearmost section of spring has movement in the rear hanger bushes which need to swing...

Re: Rear anti rollbar adjustment for 1 inch drop

You might find that you need to raise or lower the axle-to-body to get the saddle clamps to fit. If they won't line up with the captive threads then don't struggle with them, move the axle up/down a bit. The more important question is that with a Cosworth engine I expect you'll want to be using it, ...

Re: Splash guards

It's not really a cosmetic surface under there & you're likely to be the only one to see them. Any old bit of tin sheet will do the job - use a couple of bits of cardboard as templates to make it easier. Some old rubber door/screen seals work fine for protective edging or a length of rubber tube...

Re: electrics were to start

As per Bug's comment - I got a metered 12volts at the washer pump (that I had tested as working o.k. at the battery) but on the car it would not work. 12 volts isn't enough if there are no AMPS with it. A corroded wire with one strand of copper left in it was the problem.

Re: Front Wheel Droaning Noise

After 4 miles it sounds like something is heating up. Wheel bearing is prime suspect. It may have been tightened too much, they must not be tight as they are a tapered bearing. Lots of cars use bearing with parallel inner & outer races with balls or rollers in between that must be torqued tight ...

Re: Exhaust rubbing tyre

If the pipe was fitted with any clearance at all - which would normally have been so then it's your tyre that's catching on the exhaust! Subtle difference.
Fit an axle location kit then the axle won't move as far on heavy right-cornering.

Re: Completely at a loss

From your first description of the problem I thought the same as pbar - crud in the carb jets. I've also had that issue. Poor sparks after running for just a few miles from good will often be the points closing up due to them being pants these days ( for the last twenty years ) They are cheaply made...

Re: Atlas diff rebuild

You're taking the right course of action going for a pro rebuild. I did mine a few years back and it's not an easy job.

Details of recommended axle refurb companies would, I'm sure, be most welcome by all on the forum.
