New cable down to the starter and a cable directly from the battery -ve to the engine. I have been sitting thinking about it and realised I have had similar problems before once in the 70s with a NSU when hot the starter would not turn the engine - the fix for this was to slacken the starter and re-...

OK for the moment at least it has beaten me - new starter fitted today and no difference. If I power the starter by another battery the engine turns about 1/4 way then stops and the jump leads get warm. The engine turns easy enough by hand. So new starter and different battery and its just the same ...

Just a quick update as I have been out playing today for a short while. Instruments have come back to normal but only after I confirmed it was the -ve that was intermittent - came good again while I was playing. Engine does not turn - looks like the high torque starter is faulty as I tried starting ...

Rear hub removal

Not sure what you want apart - but there are four bolts which hold the back plates on to the trailing arms - they are accessed from the inside and you have to move the half shafts out to get at them. what a good engineer would do is fit the bolts the other way around - through the back plates to the...

What discs are these?

I only ran it on high boost to see if it would do it and to see what it was like - quite frighting on the normal roads. A cold day so inter cooler not required.

What discs are these?

Marks kit uses the metro turbo size of calliper - keeps the cost down and I don't expect to do any sprints or hill climbs. What boost/bhp are you running at Corky. I have had your old SS1 up to 210 bhp - currently settled for 160 for road use same as the Sabre.

What discs are these?

I bought a ventilated kit from Mark - fitted will little trouble and works as well as anything else around. Disc holes a bit large but I fixed that with a bit of tube which I cut to length to fill the gap between bolt and disc.
