Lots going on at the moment.
I pushed the sill back into place (1.5cm) following the "slight orf" at Loton. I used Craig's hydraulic ram to do the pushing (brilliant piece of kit), and then I opened up the sill like a tin can and pushed the face out with a crow bar before welding the hole back up. Looks like it worked, but the sill surface is like the Himalayas not my usual standard of finish, but it'll do for MOT and racing purposes.
I'm also waiting for some metal to arrive so I can weld in the feet for the front of the roll cage.
I've also picked up a CA20E inlet manifold, which I'm in the process of fitting to the engine I've been rebuilding (for 2 years
) . The only snag that I'm having difficulty with is the Idle Control Valve. I don't have a CA20E one (if it actually exists at all), and the CA18ET one does not fit. I understand that it's not required if I go down the aftermarket ECU route, but I don't plan to do that just yet.
So, will it work with this manifold if I make some sort of sandwich plate adaptor (which I think I can do with 10mm ally plate)? Or will it only work with the smaller CA18ET manifold?
