While i have the engine out of the car i decided it's time to fit the scatter shield to the gearbox. No chance, no room.  My tunnel is stocko except for the bellhousing area that was slightly modified.  

So yeah the right time to create the clearance required while the motor is out.

Thanks mate, 38 amps, start around 28 if you're still getting the hang of it as you need to move quick at that level. I run a short tungsten and short back to get in the tighter spots, need a decent helmet mostly as it still needs to work in awkward pistons half blocked.

Cheers, tech is for the bracket of 10.5 to 8.5. Modern cars with 4 wheel disk and an airbag can go 10.0 without tech though.  Parachute required at 140 mph so i won't need that for a little while yet. 

Was thinking that would be the bracket that you were going for. Had no idea about the extra leniency on air bag cars though, good info to know. A mustang work sponsors, dipped a bit under that and he was surprised at how much more is needed for it. 

God I'd love to see this with a split mono leaf setup, a VE head and 50psi from a gtx35!!! I'll stop trying to spend your money right now..

Cheers men, I'm real happy with it. Garage is a mess, using the excuse will clean up once it's going 😁

 

So tried to start it, couldn't find the charger for the dirty old shed laptop. Ended up half flat battery and dug up the charger, no rpm signal on the screen.  Checked cas, had a wire pulled out. Fixed that, car started and set the timing up properly. Down a cylinder though.

 

  Bit of checking stuff and it turns out one of the Bosch 2200s is seized up. My own fault, I never let them sit for more than 3 weeks without putting them in a jar of petrol, this time I left them for 3months! It takes 5 minutes to pull them out 🙄

 

Anyways, it has been soaking all week and hasn't freed up yet, so yep, 4 cylinders is barely enough, 3 is just sad.😌
