It's been many years since I messed with these axles but I do recall that rear access holes could be a bit random. I had Westminster axles (same thing except for ratio) and some had them, some didn't. The self adjuster was not that good and could take a bit of patience to get right. Biggest issue was the snail cam teeth wore away. It would then slip to the least adjusted position (if that makes sense).
faffed about a little more on the wiring front , strapped the sensors on the ally downpipes from the heads , and extended it all to the dash ,and tested it by blowing a blowtorch on the pipes ,and the readings changed so we shall see if its a go-er ..
i as not really sure about the digitals , until i lit them up ,with the brass and wood grain contrast , now i like A LOT .
made a neat cluster for the scuttle ..
that's the feeds for two temps gauges ,and the speedo feed ,and the illumination led for the speedo..
rest of the wiring tidied up ..
then panels back on ..
oh yes also did the constant feed for the clock (which,AMAZINGLY, works),it only draws 1.4 mA , so should be ok .
made a decoesque plate for the scuttle panels joint , and also experimented with making some brass plate look engine turned , i had asked v if ,when she went to the local sunday boot sale, she could find me some brass plate...., she only came back with 10 old door finger panels ,for 2 quid !! spectacular result .
tomorrow hopefully get the cowls on (as robin said to batman after a delivery from their tailor.)
