Hi.

Pleeze - start a thread on the car to keep a record of work done; and a picture is worth a thousand words, so much better than sitting at a keyboard (which is what I'm doing now...bah!) :)

Alternative Coupé register ;-)

Had a chat with the owner, this was the car's first outing since the rebuild; the owner's called Philip, and he lives in Morecambe (Lancs) and he's looking for some parts, so he might be at Curbs. Don't know any more than that.

Annoying misfire

My first thoughts on this... Is the fuel delivery OK, or just managing to supply enough for tickover/no load? Could be when moving from the Idle Jet to the Main Jet the fuel flow isn't working, so possibly there's a blockage in there somewhere. Can you see whether the accelerator pump in the carb is...

Rear axle oil leak

Peter,
Thanks for clarifying my comment on the collapsible spacer; I did the same with mine - marked the position of the nut and re-fitted the flange after replacing only the seal. Diff is still working OK.

TD is single headlamps, TE is twin headlamps, so a positive result.

You might be getting magnetic "saturation" in the sensor, picking up the teeth and the body of the wheel itself - can you increase the gap between the wheel and the sensor and see if this makes a difference? Just an idea, I've never had electronic timing, myself.

Rear axle oil leak

Hardest part for me was getting the old seal out without the proper tool.
IIRC some diffs use a collapsible spacer that goes inside so that torquing up the flange is a solid job. You might need a new one.

CALIPER POSITION GTC

I agree with Jim, and I think that after a few miles the pad wear will probably be different side-to-side anyway.
Alternatively, can't you make a negative shim out of unobtanium? :?
