You have to bare in mind that the bottom fixings effect position as well as they will push or pull slightly, potentially spreading the bars as well . The only dimension is the one you have got on your template. I used a waste pipe cut at 67 degrees to get the oval. At this point you also need to redrill the top hole in the bottom of the stays of the bar as the original hole fouls the rear lights.
Milestone day.......Its on the deck.
the front arches will need a bit of persuading as they rub the tyres a bit but this should not be an issue.
Oh, second minestrone of the day........the engine goes in.
Loads of room and I even did this one on my own. The lump will have to come back out as I need to grind off a lump of gearbox.
A few questions for the Mazda massive. Is this enough room for the clutch arm? It has about 30mm of movement.
I already know the answer to this one but for the record the nearside engine mount ill need re drilling.
My gear lever when in second gear is awfully close to the handbrake lever. does this become a burden so should I shorten/bend the lever now?
And lastly, the reverse switch on the gearbox is just touching the panel. I know it has about 2mm of dynamatting on it but I don't fancy moving the gearbox away from it otherwise it makes the prop an even worse fit.
Apologies for the photos but I use a wide angle lense and its a b******* to get the depth of field correct. Well it is for me.
As in a previous post I was looking for a new carbon silencer but the biggest I could find was a 5" and as a couple of you mentioned 5 " my not be big enough so I've decided to look at stainless steel ones
I've been talking to Simpson exhausts and wunoff about a new can wunoff can do 6" and Simpson can do a 6 or 7" I feel the 7" could look out of place but I do want to turn the volume down a bit on the car. Is anyone running a 7" Simpson can or either of the 6" cans ,How do you find them and do you have any pictures of them fitted to you Westy
