Nose cone problem solved

I spoke to David at Westfield, who although is the parts guy, he knows almost as much as the technical guys. I told him about the nose cone flopping forward, and apparently there is a bracket which fixes underneath too. There are two rivnuts in the very front of the chassis cross bar, but the aluminium floor pan covers them up. You fix the bracket here, and then secure it to the nose cone. The only problem is that we don't have that bracket, so David is sending one out with the next batch of parts.

So we are currently still waiting on:

  • Lower nose cone bracket.
  • Engine mounting bolts (only just discovered).
  • Speedo transducer (missing from kit - normally supplied with dials, but we're using the digi dash so I can see where the error has crept in).
  • Water temp sender (same problem as speedo transducer).
  • Oil temperature sender (purchased recently).
  • Oil pressure sender (purchased recently).
  • Hinges to mount the ECU tray under the scuttle.
  • Our modified ECU loom and fuel rail segment. These have been with the electrician for about 6 weeks now and they can't get hold of him, so I'm starting to wonder if it's been lost!
