Look what came in the post today

Starting to collect spare parts that are unlikely to ever be re-manufactured, so I picked up these (Austin A40 etc).

Rat Rod (really broken)

IIRC there's been issues with dodgy dizzy caps - if you have a new one it could be a problem, but it wouldn't be just one bank misfiring.
The oily plugs might suggest a head gasket problem - water leak - is the radiator cap blowing at all? A compression test might help check for leaks.

front bracket - lower wishbone to chassis O/S removal

Is it possible to "jam" the bolt to prevent it turning by putting a jack under the bracket and relying on the weight of the car on the chassis to hold it?

What spares would you take on tour in your V6 Coupe?

For France, spare bulbs and hi-vis jackets accessible from inside the car (plus all the paperwork etc). I have a Halfords inflator, which I've only ever used on other people's cars in emergencies. Spare points and condenser, fan belt (an adjustable spanner - sacrilege!!) spare insert for the fuel fi...

Porsche Cayman - any experience please

The coupe version of the boxster; mid-engined so not really for the DIY market, the early boxsters had engine failures due to bores I think; it is essential it comes with a full service history, (esp. oil changes at the correct intervals) and phone the Service Dept of Porsche Dealer who is stamped i...

Rat Rod (Electric Fuel Pump)

I think these pumps are better at pushing and not pulling, so it needs to be nearer the tank than the engine. Other opinions might differ! :?

Coolant route, I'm confused!

Drill and tap a hole in the top of the stat housing, and fit a plug to seal it once you've filled the system via the new hole?
