Hi all I was going to be Southcoast Gasure but have had a change of mind and decided not to continue. You will have to speak to Steve Shaw who I think has an alternate fitter lined up, Steve will sort you out one way or another.

No point in changing to carbs as the problem is nothing to do with the injecters if you get the same fault on LPG the gas does not use the injecters to work. I would change the sensors next. Good luck.

Fronts are easy enough it is the rears that can take a while. When I did the Kids rears I had to change / make new rear brake lines as they would not free up when removing, twisting the pipe. I would say allow a full day to do both ends. have you considered changing the disc's while you are at it? i...

Guess what I am still waiting for the modified adapters. Why is it so hard to get this done?

Nothing yet. I spoke to him last week and it seems a simple mod has changed in to a major re design. I do have a couple of spare standard mirrors if you want one to save you buying.

I am sure your starter will be Ok. Did you change the gearbox bush when you had the old one rebuilt? If not, do it when you swop engines much easier then.

If all goes well I have changed a starter motor and bush in 1/2 hour. But I did have one that was so worn the tap hardly had any thing to grip on, that took around an hour. If you are going to do it yourself it would be worth getting a few things together first. 1. M12 tap On to the square end press...

Are Elite still doing 2.1's? could not see them listed on the website the other day.

I have gone the other way 2.1 injection on gas to a 1.9 injection on gas. Works well but will be building a 2.2 over Christmas.

Yes I got them earlier today. No pictures yet as they are not quite right. But what I will say is that the adapters move the Raddo mirror out and up so they are in a simular position to the botton of the standard mirrors. I think they will work well after a bit of tweeking. I will also have to discu...

So If I go up and do all the mechanical bits do you think we should be Ok to get a retest? The bit about the antiroll bar mounting gets me. I changed a broken drop link and while I had the bar off I used new bolts, washers, lock washers and nuts. Exactly as I took off. This bloke says that nylocs sh...

Just had an apologetic phone call saying the adapters will defiantly be here tomorrow. So fingers crossed. I now see all the S---e PEET had to go through trying to source these.
