    Just fitted Ring +130 H4 bluey bulbs. Nice sharp, bright lamp... Not driven on 'outback' style black stretches thus far but, I will wager these are a noticable improvement on what was in >> Good Good 4A-F

    ..... there is a vacuum tap-off pokes straight out of the inlet manifold - facing my bulkhead - and will give steady vac. The dizzy is 'ported vac' so not steady for full range required. Gauge should be here over next few days.... Really looking forward to some timing & carby tinkering 4A-F

    I have ordered a 50mm Vac gauge, on Amazon, and wonder if any of you have had success with carb tuning - using the 'high mercury' vac indication for setting up.. ? https://goo.gl/images/iSdXff Which part of the carb vac-pipe connection did you tap into..? 4A-F

    Part of the excitement m8..... Who knows? As this is a 'substitution/chop off stock' I only have to spend [another] £35 on a 'factory stock' box to return to normal.... 4A-F

    I have ordered some exhaust putty, good price + free pp, on eBay. Popped into Halfords Auto Centre and got 4x U-clamps for £1.60 each = cannot find any cheaper option on the web. I will have to form a bend/join - over the axle - so having pre formed bends, in the original part is an 'extra bonus' 4A-F

    Yes, it has been commented elsewhere that the 'factory' is best for street. My plan is to 'temp/bodge' the rod lift (disabled mode) by attaching a slotted arm to the rod - not unscrewing anything on the carb body - the slot in the arm will *'bite' the rod [due to the twist force] and a strong spring hooked to the arm end. This is turn on/offable for me to run at will, or not! *beetle lift jacks use the same principle to 'walk up' the jack leg. 4A-F

    Ah, the memories .... indeed I'm running a 'timewarp' '91 Carina II ..... These cars were default taxi/pizza delivery fodder 'bitd' >> then ovalled to death! I'm not going Rat or Scene.... (I'm 61!!) Just taking advantage of a bit of swappability & OldSkool mods. When I get the bus pass I'll likely move on to Mamod steam engines. lol 4A-F

    I plan the 'vac mod', to release the second choke for operation all the time, but no plans for dumping the AISIN. 4A-F

    I have just ordered a Vdubb t4 'centre box' exhaust to replace my std factory 'stuffer' box... It is 50mm and a resonator/straight thru. See how it sounds, eh 4A-F
