Re: Suspension mounts

Clearly looks like the pivot bolt has been overtightened for some reason: - Worn bush - Incorrect bush - Incorrect shims Alternatively I wonder if it may be that it's had an impact that has twisted the wishbone and so damaged the pivot?

Anyway well done and enjoy the c...

Re: sorting VHPD drivability issues

Re: Light Switch Panel - Wiring

Can I ask why you're planning an oil temperature gauge, please? The two most critical would surely be oil pressure and coolant temperature, since they give the best insight into engine well-being and impending issues... Depending on the exact gauge, you will need: Fused +ve ( live with ignition on) ...
