Thanks Rob for the info, although that link appears to be bad- I get different questionable results on different devices.

My bad, turbosport.co.uk. Brain cells like body don't function well on a cold wet day. For those interested, the Restoration Section is worth a look if you are interested in bringing a rusting hulk back to life. You could spend many a night going back through some of the postings. And, we think we have problems restoring a vehicle.

h20hamelan, are you really going to need a overdrive transmission in that TC? I had mine up to 70MPH going down a long hill once and it scared the begeebers out of me. Extremely low steering ratio if I remember correctly and without some major upgrades not very tight steering either.

If anyone would rather do this swap in a TD, please let me know. I've got a '52 I'd like to get rid of.

That’s probably true
My +2 is stable, but then again. I haven’t pushed it. Nore have the opportunity around here.
My baby is probably less so
