Dudders,
I can also recollect speaking with you many times at the Griff and no doubt we'll spend some time talking up there again, especially when You and WAP347 get your Minors completed. Be good to get all three of us out for a Run.
I can feel a movie coming on titled, "The Three Minors Ride Again" :D

For sentimental Value I could be tempted to purchase my old Minor back but I feel your price may be to high for my Heart Strings. :( Perhaps we should discuss over a wee drink?

A couple of extra pics of the nearly finished item. I have a lot of problems getting the engine running right on the Suzuki throttle bodies, so i switched it to a fairly standard intake system. The TB's may be fitted later.

What servo you using? Have you used a pedal box as well ? You need to move number plate back, under the bumper looks better :)

Hi Steve,

I used an XR3 servo & peddle box, as it sits flat on the bulk head matching the angle, however i did have to modify the pedal box a bit. I did look at the Omega servo's as that might have been an easier option.

cheers, Kev

I'm thinking of changing mine back to the pedals and servo on bulkhead it'll loose the smooth look but I'd rather have decent brakes again.

Hi Matty,

Sorry i didn't notice your question earlier.

I used a Ford Capri back axle as the 40" spring saddles and bolt straight in.

Springs are currently 5 leaf saloon one's as i didn't want the back end to be as harsh as the 7 leafs would be, and it wont be carrying any loads. However i used old springs which in hindsight was a mistake, so I've bought a new pair for £80 and i'll be fitting them soon.

Telescopic gas shocks and anti tramp bars also fitted.

Good luck with your build. Kev
