    I'd been looking at these before it became the subject of discussion here. I liked the neatness of the design, but was concerned about access. I was minded just to 'remain' with the existing arrangement, but I admire Steve's individuality to 'leave' the existing arrangement and do something new. After all, how often do we check/top up out brake fluid?

    I think I might have been watching too much TV tonight .... and for the avoidance of doubt, the terminology used here does not necessarily reflect either my own or Steve's opinions on political matters!

    Subconsciously every time I open the bonnet Ill have a glance, with without doubt ever time before any long journey, but that might be just me, but as I think has been pointed out you can get a level warning sender to hook up to a light.

    Did you see what happened tonight Peter? ... The Government tried to whip their own MP's at the very last minute, as they were about to go into the lobbies to vote .... in order to get them to vote against their own motion!?!

    And they're voting again tomorrow night ....

    I am looking for a clutch for my Scooby gearbox,
    The 'box is off a 1999 Subaru Impreza 2.0 Turbo (Pull type);
    I found this Exedy Clutch Kit for £199:
    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/230mm-Exe...T/273736159671

    Any thoughts on the price or the Brand?
    Where do you buy your Scooby parts?

    I had a good few hours in the garage over the weekend, my welder pushed me back a week but it proved to be a blessing in disguise, as I completed more dry build stuff, however, (and as usual with the Nova) I received a kick in the teeth - more on that later.

    There is a lot of traffic around the pointy end if the gearbox, wiring loom, petrol, brake & clutch hoses, wiring for the petrol pump, accelerator cable, all non-standard, I have made up most of the hoses for the brake and clutch and the placement of the chassis wiring loom and petrol lines have been established, it has been very time consuming trying to make this look as if it has been planned.

    In order to route the lines correctly I needed to pop the gearbox back, and there was a problem, the Subaru gearbox mount (cross-member) fouled against the chassis forks, the mount points dont bolt-up flush by ~1mm. That'll teach me to bling it up before completing the dry-build.
    :-(

    The felt tip marks on the cross-member show the spot.
