Re: renault f7 engine

Reason is i have a freshly rebuilt cylinder head with 33mm inlet valves, ported & polished. Has to be fitted to a 2.0 F7R bottom end though.
Thanks

Re: Nimminz' LSD GLT Daily

There are two types of non PAS racks too matt 340 & 360, with different length T sections. I recently had to add a second UJ into mine after dropping the column height for the new seating posistion.

Re: leather rear seat

Hi mate, i have one from a saloon, that can be made to fit by changing the metal backing. The base is rounded at the corners but will still fit.

Re: Nimminz' LSD GLT Daily

Matt, don't try to cut coilover springs, they are formed on the ends to sit on flat seats. If they are too long then adjust to somewhere mid spring seat and measure arch gap, then buy shorter spring for relevant drop.

Re: Potential engine swaps?

The rear gearbox was done for weight distribution and handling. Anything is possible but putting something like an essex up front is like using a boat anchor. The renault F series engines will bolt in on 1.7 340 parts meaning they make more sense to use. so a volvo 440 2.0 8v on carbs is an easy swa...

Re: electric window questions...

Seb, my 3 door 360GLT had electric windows so i have the two types of mechs in front of me to compare. You can modify the 4 door ones to work but it then requires welding. The pressings used are the same 3 to 5 door but spot welded together in a different orientation.

I prefer the look of the 850 front end to be honest although the though has crossed my mind.

Re: Meet the new non 300 Daily. Updates 17/09/12

I forgot to mention engine is now run in. Only teathing problem is the engine breathers, getting oil splash off the cams so i have rerouted them and fitted a restrictor to help stop the oil running through them, but still allowing vapour through. Catch tank has significantly slowed down filling up w...
