trunnions 79 6a

If the wishbones and mounts were swapped around to allow the trunnions to be fitted, it would reduce the self-centering effect to nothing - it wouldn't make steering heavier.

MOT changes

The law still says it's illegal to use a car that isn't roadworthy. If an MOT inspector has assessed that your car isn't roadworthy, I can only think of one way to prove the faults have been rectified?

MOT changes

No change from existing pre 60 cars - I'm sure it's been asked and answered already but I'd bet that if you fail a voluntary MOT you have to get it retested as per normal?

Sabra/Sabre International Weekend 2017

Great to see Dave, Teresa and Sabre the spaniel - and all of the Sabres/Sabra and their owners :-)

Not forgetting NNG who came all the way up to study 7EUE and Geoff Pinch who joined us at Prescott.

Not without major mods to the chassis. Engine alone should be fairly simple - although it will sit well back to clear the suspension uprights, then room for the gearbox may become an issue? Definitely a good move to start with the wider 6 series chassis.

Hmm, possibly but they normally show up as lack of power or spluttering when driving first, not at idle when fuel demand is lowest?

Apologies if it's sucking eggs but thinking aloud, back to basics: Fuel vaporisation won't occur in European temperatures (including sat in traffic for ages outside Le Mans in the mini-heatwave of 2010 - with a tank full of their finest E10 :D ) in a standard setup. Underbonnet temps are a byproduct...

Once you've confirmed timing and mixture you will be closer to confirming/denying fuel vaporisation.
