Re: Engine mount bar bolts

Ok, so feedback from Brickwerks has confused matters for me. They have spec'd these bolts... Set Screw - M8x1.25 / 30mm | 8.8 | ZFL They are certainly not what I expected, not high tensile.  :? I've also not go the plates. Can anyone find me a set of those please? My Google skills are weak tonight....

Why someone would you intentionally bolt anything dangerous and unnecessary on the front of a vehicle is beyond me.... If it makes you happy :rofl Or drive a killing machine at all ;) Strawman :wink: :w...

I wouldn't worry about the rocker clearances.

Not familiar with the Webers, it could be water or crap in them?  As others have said, check for damp in the ignition side of things

Have a look at the engine running in the dark, you can see 'tracking' sometimes.

Re: WBX broken stud replacement notes

Nice work silverbullet. I know a couple friends that have local toolmaking companies from having worked with them in the past (sadly they're a dying breed).  They often get asked to spark brocken studs/bolts out, they usually drill them out :wink:.
