Hi will.

Yes I have purchased an lpg gas injection set up. It’s in the thread. I’ve had to drill the “injectors” read pipes, into the inlet manifold.

Agreed. I hate buying cr*p tools so I try to buy Britool, or so called Expert ranges (Halfords, Draper) or even own brands eg, b&q or named Bosch, Ryobi but it is a real lottery. some cheap tools have lasted very well (Draper Expert impact Driver - 10 years hard use and still going strong and then t...

Hi alan, I'd reinforced the roof beam and propped it either side of the car with the equivalent of upright 4 x 3. The block and tackle is Silverline 1 tonne, bought three or four years ago but basically boxed up until about 4 months ago. Bit frustrating. I'm trying to work out who i bought it from; ...

I'm going skiing next week so the plan was to get the car with engine to the fabricator. and next week whilst im on the slopes and enjoying a quiet hot choc...

Does Run Fast 351 Eventually!

good progress matey. I must admit I'm struggling to get down the garage to complete my engine swap. Its damp (I rent the garage) so its a bit hard to find the mojo in the dark evenings

71 GTE SE5A my rolling restoration

Lowering is well explained within this site however changing the geometry is an easy but unwanted side effect and better avoided if possible. I use pcd adaptors and now run 16" mgzr hairpin with 205 55 16 which fill the arch lovely.

Is a 5A improved over a 5 ?

Both versions are great and will offer tons of fun, enjoyment, wow factor etc. It's only a few geeks on this website who know the difference :D :D myself included.

71 GTE SE5A my rolling restoration

Great stuff. Strip the engine and look to see what's damaged. I 've stripped and rebuilt the Essex lots. It's a great engine and very easy to work on. I'm also doing an engine conversion on my 5a. Its straight forward but still a fair amount of work. If i was you i would repair / keep the essex in s...
