Re: POWAAA STEERING!

in case anyone else needs to know. 3litre crank pulley bolts straight up, no balance issues, sweet as a nut. Getting the old pulley off is a ball ache though, especially being a cast piece, its brittle. without a puller forget it

Re: POWAAA STEERING!

Z could you ask your old man what he did to the Milano stalks to make the GTV6 headlights work. As i understand it, cos the 75 has one headlight, when you select full beam on the GTV6, the stalk turns the headlights off, and you need to modify the Milano stalk to stop it doing that? I wouldnt know w...

Re: POWAAA STEERING!

Well I have to say Kevin , I drove one with full RS set up last year and Ts power steering on it, and it was sublime to drive!. I never thought I would say it, but the addition of power steering transformed the car in terms of its drive. for me anyway. I know its not everyones cup of tea. You have a...

Re: Does it seem like this site is dying to anyone else?
