Hi Baz,

Sorry to say Ross has passed away. Don't know what happened to his estate. If you really want to know, I could do some research for you.

Congratulations on a good result. So what is the pad formulation that you wound up using, Portafields?
Hows is the balance front to rear?

Wheel bearings

Mate, this is a simple enough topic but will require some verbose amount of text to get the info across. Just about any workshop manual ever made has a segment on servicing wheel bearings. If you don't have a manual or cannot buy one, often they are available form you community library if you get th...

Ah, now we are making some progress. Some close ups of each end of the shaft illustrating the detail would be nice with an explanation of how the concept works and to what degree does it work well? What are the drawbacks (if any) How is it fitted? How much power is it designed to handle? (just for l...

Reale,

The info on that site is a minefield.

What about a microscope on the driveshaft man? Thanks.

Hey Seb & GTV6GPTT, Fastcar has a very clear illustraition of my set up for the modifications to the intake plenum. The arrangement overcomes the fouling of the firewall and in the case of RH drive cars, fouling of the clutch master cylinder as well. The intake is also in a handy spot for coupling u...

This is how I did mine. The cold air intake comes from the back of the headlights/inside front guard.

(Resising my photo has turned out fairly poxy I must say)

If any one needs a clearer image, just mail me and I will send you a larger and clearer image.

Lenz I know hydraulic handbrakes work extremely well especially in rally applications so I can see your logic there. Did you know that in the main, for street applications this would make it illegal because the machinery departments feel they are not reliable to maintain pressure such as when a car ...

Michael,

For the outboard conversion I think one could use the front brakes from an Alfasud which have the handbrake built into them I beleive and they are a bigger pad area as well.

Frankly, I think Alfa have gone way more than necessary to cushion the transaxle from drive shock by putting three donuts on in the first place. One is more than enough. Lots of vehicles use just one with much bigger horsepower. So if there has to be a least one, the rest of the driveshaft needs a r...

Hey Zamani, I take my hat off to you for thinking up the collation idea for the brake conversions. A couple of adjuncts could be to review what's been done on the outboard brake front, pad formualtions and fluids to make a complete picture (if that is ever possible) on the brakes topic. Too big an a...

JJ. Appreciate your scale of modifications and the time taken to write it up. There are some interesting starters there. You've got me thinking. To answer your question Joey, I just honestly don't trust the system to stay together. A friend running in the Targa Tasmania nearly had a major accident b...
