Not sure if this was a BIN item, I did have a quick look at it. I don't think it was as I would have expected it to show as sold rather than ended. May have been ended for some other reason? supercass

Evening Chaps,

I have been looking at getting something made for my V8 running and Edelbrock Carb for several years and never quite got round to it. I'd definitely be interested if this progresses - price dependant of course.

Talking of body control/ handling mods - has anyone seen these strut tops on ebay -

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TRIUMPH-TR7-F ... D100276%26

I remember a company called Noltec manufactured these a while ago and I looked into importing some from Aus from K-Mac, but they were quite pricey. These seem excellent value and with a roller bearing, it seems a great way to lighten the low speed steering weight whilst enhancing turn in at the same time. Anyone given them a go?

Just about to get the old girl on the road again after 6 years in store, so looking into getting a few of the 'nice to do' jobs done.

Best

Hi Hodgie,

I am sure someone on here a while back brought a set of these and they didn't fit , could be mistaken though !


Cheers John

Thanks for the warning John.
A lot of effort to find out they don't do the job!

Has Glen managed to come back to you on this project? It appeared that there was quite alot of interest?
I remain keen.

Unfortunately not I'm afraid. I have emailed him, messaged him a week or so ago and sent a link to this forum...
Maybe he's on holiday, maybe not, I'll try him again tomorrow so please bear with us :wink:

Sorry folks, I've still not heard anything from the chap who made these so I guess he doesn't want to make them.
Back to the drawing board, so to speak!
