Thanks for the heads up stot, I'll drop them a line and see what they can do.

Does anyone know if the mx5 can be removed with the engine in situ? In the Haynes chassis not the original.

Not sure on the question, If you mean can the engine be removed with the gearbox in situ, yes with a bit of wiggling.



Cheers

Predictive text fail!

I meant the sump, can that be removed without needing to pull the entire engine?

Oh, yeah I did that too. Easy as pie.

Zinc/nickel plating success!



And does anyone know the bolt size to fit here?

I can't remember exactly as it'd been 3 years since I brought mine it's either an M12x1.25 or 1.5, but instead of shelling out for another two random bolts I ran a 12mm drill through them to take a standard common or garden M12 bolt.

Default Brake balance?

Pedal box is in.

Are people fitting these?



I assume it affects brake balance?

Haven't test it yet but I have fitted it to my car - kept the MX5 servo as well. Its driving standard sierra front discs and the big (9"?) drums at the rear which I've fitted with Ka wheel cylinders with 17.3 ish pistons to make sure I don't get rear wheel lock up.
No idea if its right until I try it
