South Cerney 2019

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

Tr7 V8 Megajolt

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? :?

Clutch master cylinder

Hi Chris, After massaging in the oil you need "healing hands" to lay on, as well! A serious question: now that everything is working again, I might try to reduce the clutch pedal travel and I was wondering about replacing the 0.7" master cylinder with a 1" dia. one. Rimmer Bros. sell a MkIII 88 Land...

Temp guage just stopped

Does the GTC use the Lucas regulator to "stabilise" the voltage to the two gauges? If so, it might be a dodgy connector in there somewhere?

Front hub bearings

It made sense to me, so you would be to use non-setting loctite? However, has anyone any experience of using the Revington spacer kit? I believe it uses shims to accurately fill the space between the two bearing inners on the stub axle: Here it is: https://www.revingtontr.com/product/rtr3463k/name/s...

And so it begins

Neat bracket; I hope the loctite prevents further leaks. Perhaps you could have put a smear of RTF on as well as the loctite to minimise the risk of leaks? Time will tell. Fingers crossed.

Clutch master cylinder

I have a collection of split pins donated by an ex-RAE engineer, about a dozen different sizes, so problem sorted. Thanks for the suggestions though. Everything went back together easily, clutch works just as it should, even had time to vacuum the interior ready for Silverstone. I fitted the clutch ...
