Float height

Hmm, my figures came from a Haynes manual IIRC, either Ford or the Weber Carbs one?

KVL SE5 Project

Firstly, the grille in front of the windscreen, covered by an ally plate... I have some parts of the grille from the car I cut up - not in one piece I’m afraid, but might help in making a mould?

Chassis for 6a

Your advert says “stripped chassis” are you saying that they’re actually complete rolling chassis with engine/gearbox, axle, steering rack, suspension, etc still fitted?

Chassis for 6a

Yep, I’d say 50-150 depending on condition. Of course, it’s finding the person that needs one that’s the hard bit :D
