Re: Which Coolant Hose Type?

Silicon hoses are very soft,I use them on my Special Saloon Anglia.No need for them on the S3.

Re: Overdrive S3

Thanks Steve,I was thinking about buying an S3 box,complete with overdrive,& installing it,as mine has to come out anyway.Not interested in 5/6/7 speed boxes,just 4 speed,& a lazy flick of a switch.The question was,will it fit?Are they available?
Thanks,Neil

Re: Moving Seats Back

If I could get an old seat subframe,I could weld extensions to the front of the seat runners,no loss of headroom.

Moving Seats Back

Which would be the best way of moving the seats back a couple of inches?Re mount the subframes further back?Extend the seat runners?I would assume this has been done before.

Re: Exhaust Fitting

Exhaust paste,but get the joint started before wiping a little round the inner pipe,& some in the slots.If you use too much,especially before putting the pipes together,it will harden,break off,& rattle around in the silencer.A real bugger to take the exhaust off,try & get it out,& start again.
