  1. Yes Nick really looking forward to a trip or two you ?
  2. Thanks for the assistance guys Mot got today and now to fully test, rear end set up seems good and solid brakes are excellent. Thanks again Rob
  3. John that at did the trick many thanks Rob
  4. John thanks for the info never thought of completing the adjusting of the cable when suspension is compressed. And yes I always use axle stands I’ll give the brakes a good pump prior to adjustment thanks again Rob
  5. Ok guys brake pedal feels ok but with new discs and pads all round I won't know how it feels until I get the car driven on the road . Up and down the drive seeps ok , I now have a handbrake but loads of clicks to get it to bite (meaning to stop the rear end totally) any suggestions to reduce the travel of the handbrake ? I had a slight issue with the old map on the megasquirt being corrupt but have managed to upload the map so that's good. Rob
  6. I may have a original girling 3/4 which is .75 ? But may do as you say Nick and give it a road test prior to any final decision with those guys using the mgf callipers to the rear how have you routed the handbrake cable ?? Thanks for the responses already received Rob
  7. Good to be back on the car guys, i am am a total fud ! I am using Canleys front caliper and vented discs and have not bled both bleed nipples on each caliper, I did my initial bleed with the front wheels on and was impressed with the fact you can access the bleed Nipples with the wheels on only to find a second bleed nipple on the outside of the caliper also! As I have now bled all bleed nipples all is much better, however I do think I have the smaller master cylinder and will need to swap that out. I think Clive is right with the .75, any suggestions on make? I have refurbished the rear caliper with new seals and Pistons with new paint and I am running dot 5.1 fluid as I have always done , I got rid of silicone 10 years ago because I couldn't get it to work properly ! I have ensured that bleed nipples are up. Working on handbrake now until I order the new MS. hope you guys are well and thanks for the welcome. Rob
  8. Okay guys it’s been awhile ! my car has been off the road for around five years while I build a house and garage. I have just recently finished a rear Subaru differential conversion and I’m now running Four pot callipers to the front and mgf tf tear discs and callipers to the rear. I have just made new brake lines for the rear, connecting up to braided hoses going to the calipers I have bled the system with my easy bleed and I’m getting no air bubbles in the system My brake pedal is soft and spongy and I have lots of travel Should I be looking at a different master cylinder with a complete change of front and four pots and rear caliper set up any advice greatly appreciated Rob
  9. So for those who hasn't worked this kit price out , that's about 360.00 UK pounds plus postage . Any idea on postage ? Rob
  10. There would be a hefty import on this to the UK , can I suggest any sending marked as a gift . Would be interested in the cad drawings for the bottom plate . I already increased the strength and rigidity to both my plates . Looks interesting
  11. I managed to get Rover 100 shafts to fit my conversion, the cheapest were 320 for a Northwich based company to make new from scratch and the dearest was a F1 company who would make a pair for 700 but they had a lifetime warantee and were good for 400bhp+ Rob
  12. Clive, sorry mate whats Tramping? Sorry found it on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BVQ5iZQTQJI Now I am worried I have the option to add traction control to the MS? Rob​
  13. I have really looked into having shafts re splined, no one would touch it. I managed to get the cheapest Pair of shafts made for 170 per shaft. However have shafts to fit my conversion atm. Cutting and rewelding shafts to length is not the way you want to go, get it wrong and its bad. Rob
  14. Clive, do you have any pics from the side looking towards the diffs looking at drive shaft clearence to the chassis? Looking good, I am waiting for part and sourcing the brackets for the GT6 lower wishbone. Rob
  15. Cheers Chris, I will pop in and speak to them, my subaru diff can be used as parts if needed. Chris hope the training is going well mate. Clive, you have this fitted now? is the drive shaft out lower than the Triumph diff once fitted in place? ​ Rob
