Its enough to make me swear I cannot get back on ... the confirmation mail never reaches me and Dan's email bounces 'uck it'

Heres a few thoughts you could post for me...

1) Cam nut I'd clean sprocket taper with abrasive kitchen cleaner to give prefect mating of surfaces.

2) Effect of cold start advance? Check using strobe to loosened fuel injector line fuel pulses...

3) Is there a difference between N/A nozzles and TD nozzles and availability? price?

4) People been talking about Quantum 0.68 5th gear... This appeared on early QJ boxes;2N and 8G... BUT has any one tried using the gear clusters out of the 5 cylinder models (different bellhousing but ratios 2.85; 1.52; 0.96; 0.70 and 0.53 for 1st ...5thWouldnt this take revs down from 3000 to 2500ish at cruising speed?

Cheers Mark(The Miser)UK
