  1. ready for filling the engine bay; waiting for some victim that helps to remove the bonnet.
  2. Cool air for webers a must. The Revington box , like the Bastuck-box ( Google for "Bastuck V200TRW" or here the pdf instructions with Pictures https://www.bastuck.de/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/14_v200trw_internet.pdf ) is fitting to TR6 and GT6. But GT6 has a stepped manifold, it does not fit. I copied it and made a plate from alloy and for the round air filter I sliced from a cheap stainless steel tube from ebay. Then you can take care about the stepped carbs. I added some short 16mm ram pipes from fastroadcars.
  3. looking for a suitable place to mount the brake booster
  4. I have a lowered GT6 MK2. 1/2 Inch plate at diff. Bracket conversion. CV conversion. I use Spax TT3611. Works fine street(12 klicks from soft) and trackday (17 klicks from soft). Martin

    SPITFIRE DIFF/SUSPENSION

    Rotoflex / Swing Spring a good idea (I like the Rotoflex more ), but please consider to upgrade the brakes to GT6 / Vitesse spec. Regarding diff I have the 3.89 in the GT6 and like the acceleration on tracks Cheers Martin
  6. T55 did the trick just minutes ago.
  7. of course, engine is the bare block on an engine stand. Unfortunately a bit slow motion rebuilding the engine Martin
  8. If the plug above the oilfilter is a simple 3/4 UNF, I will take it out as well and machine some screw to fit. Martin

    What's happened here??

    HI John, had the same oil leak with my GT6, the square seal not properly seated, perhaps too much force used? Martin
  10. Hi John, the flat one I always take out. Drilling a hole and then hammering a Torx nut ito it. then I was able to turn it out. I got new ones from Canley (stick of 6 ) and glue it in with "WEICONLOCK® AN 305-42 Hydraulic and Pneumatic Sealing" Something similar should be available from other brands. The one above the oil flter I did not take out as I could not find a replacement. Martin

    Nick & Chris's Gt6 Mk 3

    I can recommend Langlow paint remover. And a T9 in one pic in the left corner? Cheers Martin
  12. Whow an original Vitesse Estate. I did some small Progress with engine parts. Replaced a bush in a con rod. The others are within spec. Nost critical Topic to align it properly.
  13. The car has really rotten floor, a posts,inner sills, outer sills ... Some boxed section where the rear axle is mounted is, ..... hmmm crunchy. But: bonnet, doors, rear hatch very good nearly rust free. front wings are replacement ones with only some minor rust spots at the bottom, new front panel was neatly welded in and I will cut it out as spare. Thus the car gives me all the body parts I need. This was not expected and I already bought most body parts. Thus may sell some of them again, Martin
  14. Yes car will be white again. I by chance detected a 1976 Polo at a Bosch Garage in the backyard. Thus I bought it as a donor. My old car is missing so many (or nearly all) parts, that it made sense, and it was cheap and is absolutely complete. You see it on my new lift
