  1. Yes it uses a sensor from a Renault Megane
  2. Not much progress for a long time! Does anyone know what pedal cover the auto brake pedal needs? many thanks Rob
  3. If you’ve still got the elite up on jacks I’d recommend repeating the test with some white dots on the shaft, UJ & hub, hub carrier which will help highlight the source. whilst you’ve got it up on jacks it’s worth fabricating a dif brace from some U shaped steel channel.
  4. I had a look at using taper rollers as well (Timken make some) and found I’d need 2 pairs + the bearings would cost almost £150 (retail). What do the Esprit’s use? There must be another automotive bearing what would fit with some machining?
  5. Hi Tom, it was a new aftermarket one, all the welds are very neat. the rad I bought is now listed at about £160 for a difference of £45 I’d go for specific one
  6. Spotted a very nice looking White Excel headed towards Abergavenny about 9:20 this morning didn’t identify which version, As I was distracted by my kids arguing about the differences with my Eclat…. The main one being my car is at least 12 months away from getting back on the road!
  7. Nice colour shame about the finish, you need a neighbour whose car has a worse finish! I’m lucky as my neighbour painted his wife’s 207 with a roller….
  8. That’s a very neat solution using the crash panels
  9. From fleabay for £100. It’s got a 40mm core which is twice the depth of the stock MGTF one. the stock one is good for 160bhp in the MGTF, Although I assume that they get some additional coiling from the length of coolant pipes running under the Car.
  10. I had the same thought when I realised the rad would fit! I bought the original mg Tf one mainly for the Fans which are the correct size for our cars. I then made up a frame to fit it which was a waste of time... as a friend suggested threading the pins at the top and bottom of the rad and using them. so I’m going to mount the upgraded MGTF one below, I’ve cut m10 x 1.5 threads with cut down mg mounting bushes and stainless nylock nuts. I’m going to use copaslip to minimise any reaction between the stainless and the aluminium.
