I`ve often thought that a warning light (or buzzer) would be a good idea as a back up to the pressure gauge. By tthe fitting, do you mean the threaded adaptor into the block or the pipe itself (just so I know what to keep an eye on.)?
The threaded adapter :?

Starteur de la motuer

..bonjour. Any good recommendations for starter motors? ECP has two totally different pictures of what it claims to be the same thing, so not too confident about it! Plus I hate ECP for sending me so many incorrect things in the past.

Re: rear wheels fowling arches

OK, I had to ask: there are no birds under there? (Oh, please yourselves!) Maybe he should try feathering the throttle :sorry: That car will fly when the clearance problem is sorted and the owner will be eggstatic If what you say is true, he'll need to ditch the steering wheel and get a proper yolk.

Re: rear wheels fowling arches

Are you sure contact between tyre and arch is the problem? Does it knock or does it make a sort of sound like a screechy bark?

Don't expect Tom's 0-60 time or top speed though if your car is standard. He has neglected to mention a couple of mods to his car ;)
