malaga project update

Postby LB_malaga » Tue Oct 06, 2009 9:06 pm

evening people,

i thought i'd upload a few more pics of progress with my motor

as you can see the wiring need some tidying (ahem!) but the exhausts are finished (they don't hit the ground, its the pic angle). the prop is fitted and so is my new fuel line. just got to finish the cooling, sort the steering, fit new suspension, fit new brakes (still not sure what???), fit new wheels, sort the clutch master cylinder and it'll be ready for testing....sort of

Not bad at all ,i assume your going to weld the chassis strutt back in ,the one you have cut off . my steering column has 4 U/Js in it and 3 rose joints ,it works a treat but with my engine its a bit on the heavy side ,as for brakes im sticking with the existing stuff for the time being as i have put a new master on it and now have better brakes than i did with a remote servo fitted, That was very fierce and liked locking everything up

at the moment i've got standard herald discs and calipers, which i'm guessing aren't up to much! i was thinking of going up to triumph gt6 calipers with drilled and grooved discs and ebc kevlar pads. what set-up and master cylinder do you have?

something like these:

GT6/Vitesse discs and Princess 4 pot callipers fed by a .625 master cylinder and a pedal with a 5:1 pivot ratio.

Best braking per £ you can get not the lightest set up but certainly more than up to the best an RV8 will through at a Dutton

Andy, thanks for the reply! only one question: do you know if these calipers will fit on my herald vertical links, or will i need adapter brackets?

Cheers

I have fitted them to GT6 amd Spitfire uprights - not 100% sure about Herald but they should be the same as Spitfire so should work fine
