Re: autometer fuel gauge help

I had a look, and most Autometer gauges run opposite to what you want. I think you're going to need to find a replacement sender, unless you can may flip it around?

Re: g200 turbo oil feed.??

You can put an adapter between the block and the oil pressure sender, however I imagine there is another grub screw you can pull out of the block close by it that will work for a feed. Personally, I used an oil filter sandwich plate like this: http://www.japcarparts.nl/images/productimages/smaller/S...

Re: G200 specs would be great !!!

The holes rob to much oil from the big end bearings. out of all the g series that have spun bearings and thrown rods g200 would make up 90% of them. and only a guess but the g200 would only make up less than 5 % of all g series engines. Would this be the same for a G161 running a G200 crank/G161 ro...

These are $20 usd each, and they are slotted to give you camber adjustment. Well worth it.

Thread mining... :) 15x7.5 (8"s between outer faces) +25 rims with at least a 195/50/15 tyre on a TF front with lowered springs and VT brakes. Any issues? You'll have issues in the front without large amounts of camber. I have 15x7 +25 on VT brakes and my tyres are super close to the guards, d...

I've got 450lbs in the front and 250lb in the rear. It's not too bad. I've been advised to go higher by an older friend who races Chevettes though. He has 900lbs or 1000lbs in the front of his race car and it rides much nicer than mine - it really comes down to the match between spring rate and shoc...

That's not the car you are thinking of. I'm pretty sure it was a blue wagon, I think it was in Ireland. May have been a Chevette but I can't be sure. Real square flares, right?

They are +26, but I have Hoppers brakes which push the track out 10mm. It's effectively the same as running +16 on normal Gemini hubs/brakes. Full lock can be an issue when you are going over some uneven ground, but only on the outer guard which isn't really an issue as you're never going that fast ...

I have 15x7 +26 with hoppers front brakes. These push the track out 10mm so they wheels are effectively 15x7 +15. They fit decently at the front. Little bit of scrubbing on outer guard at full lock. I have 195/50s too, so no stretch. Also have adjustable ball joints.

I do understand what you're saying, it would probably be good to cover the terminals with something.

I do however, have no rear seats, but instead have a sheet steel firewall where the seats used to be

If my car gets rear ended to the point where the battery rips from that location AND sets the car on fire, then I'm letting it burn. It'll be written off anyway.

I bought a drycell so that I didn't have to have a big gross box in the boot, I've had acid problems in the past.
