Sound advice :th: find a proper place with a good reputation for setup work, not a tyre centre.

That’s the plan, I would just like to get an idea of possible issues before I go and it needs to pass a MOT. I’m going to have a look at the caster set up and just measure left to right and check the steering wheel is centred. It will also give me chance to ensure all the suspension is loose so that someone with a clue can adjust it all with out it taking a lifetime.

It looks like I might make japfest this year, it won’t be pretty but it will be moving.

Thanks everyone, I hadn’t realised about the caster on the front even my basic measurements showed that the caster on the passengers side was widely different to that of the drivers side.

So after fixing that and a few other things it turns out I now have some kind of fuel leak. This car will be at japfest even if it’s going on the trailer!!

Has anyone changed the fuel system on a mk1.5 to an AN fittings? I’ve developed a fuel leak so this might be the moment to update the system. The majority of the system is not a problem, however find the jis male to AN-6 fitting for the hardline seems Impossible to find so I was considering using a 5/16th compression to an-6 line on the hardline and cutting of the connector and flare.

Has anyone tried this successfully I know it if goes tits up then I’m pulling the tanks and sorting the fuel lines hence my question.
