Usually if you transpose front/back and left/right, it's spot on. It's a 
direct copy of the Renault manual, in fact some of the diagrams are 
obviously renault due to subtle differences in the engines.

>  What sorta advance do u get before knocking?
I've never played with a stock distributor - just set it to 13 and leave 
it. On our Stage 1&2 engines, I'm running 11.5 or thereabouts and it's 
10 on a stock engine - but the igniton curve is different.

>  Basically my car is in good nick...because of the the long time at the coast the ally on the motor is going fury......know of any chemicals or stuff that removes it?
If you can clean it to a smooth surface, I use an aluminium flake paint 
which is literally aluminium dust in a lacquer of some sort. It goes on 
really easily and comes right up bright silver. The engine on our front 
page was done in it.

>  Also how does one get a dash....mine has the dreaded crack almost on the center line.
Either 1) get very lucky or 2) wait for DMC Texas to bring repros out.

The main problems witht he window motors are:

1) Metal worm, plastic gear = shredded gear
2) some idiot put the elbow too close to the motor on the wrong (of two) 
mounts behind the door handle. The replacement metal regulators use the 
correct one and allow the slider to run in parallel with the window 
guides. The repeated flexing of the original plastic one is why it breaks.

>i was thinking of a bent metal tube with a bracket brazed on as a fixing point.
>  If u do dhave a sketch would help me to miss out a lot of engineering
The original plastic motors are rubbish. if it breaks, throw it away and 
buy a replacement one. THEN I/we will help you fit it, as that's a fun 
job :-)
