Could I do away with this and fit a original type s...

Re: Exhaust identity?

I did look at wiki,but not the same! Manifold pipes are same ,but mine has pipes to a end mounted silencer as explained. Can I just disregard the extra pipes and bolt silencer direct as per the top digram?

Re: Raising Suspension

Im a short a*** ,so the head height isnt a prob. :) just fancied a different look thats all! Havent looked closely at the area where the springs locate,but guess the spacers would need some sort of location to stop them popping out in extreme cases?

Re: Royal Traveller awning set up....

OK Thanx.. I thought one pole would be the gutter pole ,altho' there are figure of 8 pieces also supplied.Should there be 2 gutter clamps ,one each end of the gutter pole?The poles with the rubber ends presumably fit into the pockets. Will have a look for the pockets.... Regards Rod
