1800ti cambelt tracking

If a belt is tracking off, then that usually indicates a misalignment of one of the pulleys (or too tight); given the cam and crank pulleys shouldn't (can't?) be out of alignment, I'd have another look at the tensioner pulley.

Fuel Additive

I don't recall the exact "brand" or company that was selling them, but it did transpire that the same person was at the top (Philip Broquet IIRC) amd behind it all, one way another. He went through a phase of becoming a serial director with a stream of companies all magically selling the same produc...

Fuel Additive

They're all the same product, just repackaged or renamed - I think it was called "FuelCat" but the Broquet name was dropped at the time as they were being investigated by someone or other. Still the same person selling them, though. Certainly was back in 1991 when I had a cylinder head destroyed in ...

SE6A Overdrive

It’s a fixed ratio for the overdrive of about 0.8:1 so it should be dropping about 600rpm at 3000rpm in 4th.

I have had first hand experience of them, Geoff. I can categorically say they do not stop valve seat recession.

I still can’t believe someone is still peddling those. One can only assume there are some gullible people still buying them..

Jaeger/VDO Clock repair

You can't easily measure a capacitor with a resistance meter - some meters do have a capacitance setting but at a guess the lower one is duff but at that age, it's likely both are behaving below par anyway. Newer ones will likely be smaller as the materials used are different; if you'd have used 25V...
