Trackrod end query

Workshop manual says for both power and manual steering "track rod to outer ball socket nut locking M14 55-60 lbft". M14 2.0mm pitch. Both nut and ball joint flats take a 22mm spanner.

G130 YCF sprint car

I’m assuming that’s a typo Darryl - 300 lb/ft, not Nm? My 1.4 Skoda Fabia had 250Nm of torque..

Propshaft Query

Petrol tank

It looks very similar to the SS1 tank in construction - just a bit bigger (plus they came in variable sizes IIRC from 50-odd to 80-odd litres) from seeing one on a Convoy tipper some years ago.

Petrol tank

Petrol tank

At least the Sherpa 300/Convoy was available with a V8..

FEB444W Renovating my 6A after repurchasing

There is a lean the right direction - I have a figure of 2 degrees in mind. The axle pinion is angled by the same amount - or should be.

6a Front Suspension - back to standard height?!
