Parts for sale/wanted / Re: WTB: Front and Rear Anti Roll Bars
« Last post by MiniDave on Today at 10:08:42 AM »
I'm wanting a rear bar if you happen upon one that's deemed too small or light duty for your application....

Edit - I found a guy fairly local to me that has a rear bar for sale - it's 3/4" so too much for my street application - I'm looking for a 1/2" bar myself. But let me know if you want his number - it's virtually new.

Looking for a set of anti roll bars for my current build.  Anyone breaking a former race car??    Any leads appreciated.

Thanks!

Last things I need to do are bleed the brakes and clutch, and I may need to pull the wok, something's not right in the clutch assy...I'm wondering if they forgot to put a release bearing in or if it's on backwards or something.

More as I figure it out.....

nice work been watching the thread from the start thanks for taking the time to post fun to read.

If you ever need/want send me a vectored drawing or dxf file and I can cnc plasma cut brackets for you and ship them your way. or a cardboard templet to size I can scan that and draw over the scaned image as well.

Well that and the other thing I discovered was rather than trim the flares to fit over the body seams, they cut the seams!  So I have 6 points with no seam.  That's no bueno for body rigidity.

Doesn't it feel good to remove nasty, rusty bits and weld in solid new metal?  77.gif

Slow gradual climb, gauge is operating off the voltage stabilizer so it should be getting 9V, not 12V....I need to check that it's getting 9V to make sure but I know it's wired that way.

Lots of dirt, rust flakes, an unnecessary metal.  Few areas to tidy up before putting the new cill on.

Is it an electrical or mechanical temperature gauge?  Was it a rapid jump or slow gradual climb to 'H'?

If electrical, a) could there be a short to ground somewhere else in the wiring for the gauge?  b) could it require regulated/reduced voltage to be on the correct scale?  (Gauge expects 0-10V and was receiving 0-12V and thus reading high?)

Yeah, I don't get that either - John McGee put a set on his customer's car that he did a Vtec on, the guy waited a year and a half for John to finish the car, and put it up for sale a month after it was done.
