    I bought another one so the red one is available again if you want to use it as a mould or to practice with.

    Gates barricade 5/16 7.9mm fuel injection hose

    Silly question but what fittings can be used to connect this hose to a -6 fitting?

    1.6 Ecoboost Conversion

    I had a little bit of time last night so put fresh oil in the gearbox. Went to replace the engine oil cooler (the ecoboost has one on the side of the block where the filter mounts) and found I need a 12mm Allen key so that will have to wait. Next I refitted the steering column and couldn't find the bolts so that will have to wait. Sometimes it's not just about having time but having what you need in the time you have!

    1.6 Ecoboost Conversion

    Having focused on other things July and August like the hot weather, family, and holidays I got back into the garage last night... The engine is back in (hopefully for the last time!) and prop fitted.

    Mazda gearbox chassis mount - picture request

    After a bit of a break I've finally fitted the prop... does the angle look right to you? I know there some be some angle on the prop. Bailey Morriswho made my prop recommend 2-4 degrees. I've check the up/down angle. Floor to diff center and floor to gearbox center and have the correct angle but it's clearly got an angle left to right. Any idea how to measure to check the angle?

    1.6 Ecoboost Conversion

    While I had the engine out I decided to redo the front brake pipes as I wasn't happy with what was there. I found a supplier (in Germany) for coated steel brake pipes and got the right tools for the job. I also needed to change the end fitting on the rear line from M10 to imperial to fit the new master cylinders without using an adaptor. Here's the result... The eagle eyed will notice I've also removed the under car fuel line. I'm going to run a new line inside the tunnel where it will be further away from the hot exhaust when entering the engine bay and also more protected incase of an accident.

    I've started to move the loom but decided against trying to strip out what's currently in use. Who really knows if I or another owner might want to put back the heater or different gauges. Firstly I stripped back the loom tape and found only two wires which needed to be lenghed so that I could reroute it into two main runs. Using the proper loom tape it was easy to put it back together.

    Custom Steel Brake Pipes

    Anyone interested in having a custom pipe made? I might instead resell the tool and remaining pipe.

    Aim mxs info thread

    I don't mean to divert the discussion but as this is the AIM info thread... I've a colleague who's into minis and on Monday bought the Strada 1.2. apartently this new version of hardware is not compatible with the current software. There is a Beata test version but that could lead to all kinds of unexpected issues. Does anyone know about this? I'm yet to buy and a few months away from needing one but it make me tempted to look at other options.
