Patch in an adjustable dial switch like the EPS kits use?


twisting dials like a savage!!!



Could set it at a preferred point and then only would need to adjust it for 3 point turns, wife driving.

Speed sensor linked would be ideal though.

The mini cooper pump also uses a remote reservoir.

I haven't given it any thought, but how hard would it be to make a remote reservoir for the astra pump? Wouldn't help you much though if the pump craps itself or a wire comes loose etc

XC Barina/Combo/Corsa columns have the electric motor on them, and you can get the dial patch leads for those.

I’ve got a combo as a work van, heavy at low revs as I’m guessing they chew a heap of juice. Those things even have those big DIN batteries in them.

I would be loath to use those power assisted steering columns on a car that wasn't designed for it.

How is a Barina column going to cope with a cast iron V8 sitting over a pair of 225 wide tyres? Also the original Mustang steering components may not be designed to cope with that amount of force put on them on a regular basis. The car might require more regular wheel alignments?

Picked up some 2017 convertible mustang seats for my project.

Wasn't expecting them to be Roush seats 😂

The engine has arrived and is on the stand, I'll post some pictures in due course. Ultimately this will be Boofheads engine that he collected the parts for, for his Gold 65 FB, we have his heads and Cam which will determine the nature of it. I used the rotating assembly in another 347 last year but Dwayne has sourced some other bits. The engine Dwayne got hold of is a bit confusing from an original build perspective, with what parts were used and what was done /not done. That's said they had 1/2 a chop at it, and some quality bits, but some stuff was over looked. They have stamped 302 Trans-am on it where to engine number would be? can assure you its not what I would be what I call a Trans-am spec, budget Group N maybe. Its a 69 block so its good and solid in the webs, but they hadn't drilled the steam holes, cam gear oil feed etc etc, looks like it may have blown a head gasket to me which is why they pulled it down, and it had some shit through it.

Given the block is 40thou, should I get the steam holes drilled?

I drill them myself, all early blocks need them.

The rear seats will need some work on the base to get them to fit properly, as they sit about 4-5" too high as is and rear vision is limited.



There's a few options I'm considering:

1) I should be able to drop the base down a couple of inches by modifying where it goes over the trans tunnel, and also get another couple of inches by chopping the base where it meets the backrest.

2) Remove the area between the two headrests so I can see through.

3) Install rear view camera and digital mirror
