Curborough fig of 8 on Sunday.
im with the TR Register class mine and the cars natural home. Which is just as well looking at the size of the classic marques class.
(how can a 2021 Porsche Boxster gts 4L be a classic. ??)
The GT6 has a Ford zetec in it.
Roger, you are most kind!
But this has been an academic discussion. While a properly constructed installation might make it just about acceptable, the External Oil Line to the Cylinder head is still Ye Spawne of Ye Deville Incarnate, the *rs*h*l* of Beelezebube!
If I fitted one, I would have to resign from my Ministry, no longer to preach eternal damnation to those who yield the blandishments of the Eville Onne!
But as an engineering debate, on ways and means, it's fascinating. Such erudite discussions make Sideways the best of the many message boards I frequent!
Thank you again for your kind offer, but no, thanks!
Just convert the banjo bolt to a needle valve then you can adjust it to your hearts content!
All you need to do is drill and tap the banjo bolt say 4mm until it breaks through to the cross drilling then turn a very slow taper on the end and fit a copper washer and lock nut and jobs done!
one option is too braze up the existing hole and re drill to an appropriate dimension. I know few have oxy acetylene sets these days but they are very useful for all sorts of odd jobs like this.
An other option is to buy a metric restrictor of s ize that gives diameter slightly larger than the imperial thread you need and turn it down and re thread in imperial.
A lot is down to the type of paint used. I've fully restored several cars over the years, and as a DIY job have always used a cellulose paint finish with great results. But after several months the paint shrinks and you can see hair line cracks appear, usually in tight corners and along seams. Easy to rectify, the advantage of doing it yourself and having half a litre of the original mix paint left over. Just need to get in there before rust takes hold. I've also used Bonda Primer as an undercoat, and found it to be durable and long lasting. Just needs a good key, to make sure the top coat stick.
It's a difficult balance. It is thoroughly depressing to see rust appearing a year or so after a full strip & repaint. Not suggesting that would happen here, but I rushed the paint stage on my front suspension rebuild and regret not taking a bit more time.
