    Rod I think you will be pretty safe at .015". Most of the performance cams from the UK that I have seen are around the OE figure (.015") some US cams can be a little more although the most I have seen was .018" but unlikely in your area. Denis

    I respectfully disagree Steve. None of the 41 items I mentioned above can be modified in any way to make them fit, except perhaps for item 10. The 7 other suppliers I now deal with are able to provide usable parts so why not Moss? Cheers

    The major adjustment for speedo calibration is as you stated the strength of the rotating magnet, the secondary adjustment if the depth the rotating magnet protrudes into the aluminiuim cup.

    Another factor is the drive ratio that is used to rotate the magnet. Declan can assist in this area with his custom built speedo drive reduction boxes.

    I would be carefully inspecting to see if t...

    Actually the length of the spring will make all the difference. Think of the adjustment on a clock with an excapement movement. The clock is adjusted to give accurate time by effectively shortening or lengthening the hair spring by moving a "clamp" along its length. Or think of a long coil spring with a weight attached to one end and the other end fixed, set it in vertical motion and note the pe...

    As if running a parts house for obscure, antique cars that no one wants to manufacture parts for on a limited run is easy. Yes, a part that "almost" fits is better than no replacement part at all.

    Until people are willing to pony up and pay $500 for a door latch like the rest of the automotive world, this is what we will get. If there's a way to produce thousands of perfect parts for cars...

    Thanks, Tom. I know that's what the WSM says, but an archive search indicated that no one has been able to find it. Do you know where it is located and what it looks like? Got a picture? Thanks again...

    I have had good results with the Moss repo coil too for a TD.

    No you can't Lawrence! The progress is out of shot. ;-)

    Being a 7-day a week builder,I have spent no more than 3 or 4 hours on the Sprite in the last 18 months. I did some lead loading on the bonnet and welded in some seat belt anchor points - no, not to the bonnet!

    That's about all I have been able to get at on the shell!

    NK, is really getting closer and closer, to being a nuclear power. It only needs one, and the efficient means to deliver it. That doesn't look far off now.

    Is the idiot leader of NK really daft enough to launch a nuclear missile, at anyone, let alone the US?

    If the potential of a nuclear armed Iran was considered serious, then perhaps a country led by an idiot might be even more dang...
